Decorative concrete flooring, including acid-stained concrete and cement overlays, is easy to maintain and will last indefinitely. You just need to follow several basic principles:
- Dust mop or broom sweep weekly to prevent dirt accumulation
- Damp mop monthly to remove smudging, scuffs and water marks, and to restore gloss
- Re-coat with new floor finish (polish) once or twice per year to rebuild loss of finish due to damp mopping, spot cleaning and dirt particle abrasion
- Exercise caution (and take precautions) before placing stationary materials or objects on your floor for long periods of time
- Maintain clean mats at all exterior entrances
