Implementation of the following maintenance program will allow the Ashford Formula to continue to react with the concrete, lifting contaminants away from the concrete and allowing the marble-like sheen to develop.
Scrub Floor Often: Minimum routine cleaning 2-3 times per week with CreteClean Plus with Scar Guard provides superior results.
Clean Spills Quickly: After densification is complete, concrete will resist contamination and moisture penetration of most liquids. Corrosive or aggressively staining contaminants should be removed quickly to avoid possible staining.
- Automatic Scrubber
Capable of 125 – 150 lbs. of downward pressure.
- Black Stripping Pads or Medium-Aggressive Nylon Brushes
Accelerates the sheen and creates a more uniform appearance.
- Detergent*: CreteClean Plus with Scar Guard
Performance enhancing detergent specifically designed to clean densified and densified-polished concrete floors. Regular use helps decrease the visibility of minor scratches and blemishes and helps maintain the concrete sheen.
..*If other detergents are used they should be non-acidic and void of hydroxides and sulfates.
- Large Volumes of Water
Water used while cleaning the concrete surface will actually accelerate the reaction between Ashford Formula and the concrete.
- Oil Emulsifier & Acrylic Stripper: CreteStrip
Use directly on stain for spot treatment.
- Polypropylene or Stiff-Poly Brushes
Regular mainentance after sheen develops.
