Let me begin by saying these are not my photos. These belong to a photographer who was onsite, at any rate- it captures the job very well.

So, we have been requested to clean these areas or those similar. Cleaning the fixtures will be no problem. These concrete floors however, are at best...iffy.

We’ve never cleaned concrete before. They are quite dirty with dust from recent construction also, but that is only temporary.

How would you guys tackle this job. The best equipment we have currently is a Dupray Super Carmen’s Inox steam cleaner, Kaivac and standard mop and bucket. We don’t have a floor machine and was hoping we wouldn’t need one. At least not yet.

These floors have inconsistent gloss levels, some areas are quite noticeable some areas barley noticeable.

What would be the best way to handle this job in our situation. Also if decided to invest in another machine- what would you all recommend?

This is quite urgent so any help would be an incredible amount of assistance. As this will be a great contract if we make it past this trial period.

What a beautiful building!!! May I ask here it is located?

I cannot help you with your questions, because I dont know anything about cleaning concrete either. I have cleaned terrazzo floors, and they were a PIA. Polished concrete is probably a bit different. I would guess a steam cleaner might be the thing to try first.

I have 1 account with a polished/finished concrete floor. I backpack vac witha 16" carpet floor tool. This account makes windows & sliders so there is lots of metal grit on the floor. Follow up with damp mop w/3ft microfiber pads and change the pads often.
Use a new vac bag each time. This place has lots of vac tools
