HOW TO SPRAY BUFF FLOORS
The purpose of spray buffing a floor is to both light scrub and polish at the
same time. When spray buffing be sure to remove all heavy soil before
beginning. A burnisher with a spray buff pad should be used when spray
Dust mop the floor to remove a debris and dust.
Burnish the floor using a burnishing floor pad and spray buffing compound or
Dust the floor to remove micro-particles of floor finish and dust.
Make sure that your floor has been prepared for scrubbing. After the floor
has been prepared vacuum or dust mop the floor to remove any dust. We
recommend that you spray your dust mop with dust mop treatment to remove as much
dust as possible. Make sure to remove anything stuck to the floor because
this will gum up or rip the floor pad.
Make sure that the floor you are burnishing does not and will not have traffic
moving through it. Use warning signs to make sure the area where you are
scrubbing is marked out so that everyone is aware of it.
Before you spray buff any area make sure that you have removed and dirt and
debris from the floors surface using a dust mop.
When spray buffing a floor use a burnisher that rotates the floor pad at least
800 rpm. When spray buffing divide the room into 4'x4' squares.
Spray the spray buff solution into the square and buff until the floor is
glossy. Solution tanks are available for some burnishers. These
burnishers are able to release the spray buff solution into the spray buffing
floor pad. Spray buff the sides of the room first then swing the burnisher
side to side towards the center of the room. Overlap your previous path by
about 6 inches with the burnisher.
After the room has been burnished use a dust mop to remove fine particles of
floor finish and dust.
Burnishers with solution tanks come in all sizes and styles and start in the
$1700 range for a base model. ( National Super
Service makes a wide range of burnishers at low prices.)
