Shiny, clean floors are a sign that your staff takes good care of the entire building. Spray buffing floors is an excellent way to preserve a floor's high gloss finish and extend the length of time between stripping floors.

To spray buff, first move any furniture, mats, rugs or other obstacles in the work area. Then put up wet floor or caution signs. Remove any stickers, gum, or labels with a putty knife. Dust mop and then wet mop the floor with a neutral cleaner. Remove black heel marks as you wet mop. Begin spray buffing by carefully spraying a small amount of solution on the floor, directly in front of your machine. In the beginning of the process the floor will look smeared and dull. Make two to three passes with the high speed machine and the shine will return.

Also watch for high spots on the floor because if you're using an aggressive pad you can remove finish very quickly. Always make sure that your pads are clean before buffing the floor.
