Using Sacrificial Floor Wax for Concrete Floors

Length - 01:31

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.
