Using Sacrificial Floor Wax for Concrete Floors
Even if your floor is protected by a sealer, you also need to preserve the sealer by applying a sacrificial wear surface, often referred to as a wax or floor finish. Here are some of the reasons why, says Harris:
- A floor finish is easy to maintain and much easier to reapply than a sealer. Simply buff it out and reapply more when necessary.
- This sacrificial surface protects the sealer from wear and improves slip resistance.
- It not only makes the floor look nice, it also serves as a shock absorber to scuffs, scratches and grime.
See Harris demonstrate how to apply floor wax with a micro-fiber mop.
