Hey, my name is Dustan Balkcom. I'm the building manager here with The Living Light Community Center. Today, we're going to be talking about how to actually maintain a stained concrete floor. So a couple things to keep in mind when you do that, there's some ways that are going to make your life a lot easier and so we're going to talk about that. Come on, let's check it out. Alright, great so now maintaining those stained concrete floors, it's going to be really important to get a nice heavy coat of floor wax on there. It's going to be super helpful not just to protect it but also to make it shine really nice. So, we're going to be using just a regular floor wax. You can buy it in a gallon size. You're going to pour it directly into your mop bucket and you're going to use just a regular cotton nap mop and you're going to spread it all over the floor. Now just keeping in mind you want to cover all areas because everything as you're mopping this on, everything that's wet is going to be what's going to shine in the future. So make sure you get all the corners really nice, you get right up to all your doors, cover the whole thing over. It's really important also to let it dry for 30 minutes in between coats. You're going to want to put at least two coats of wax on there. If it's a high traffic area, you can put three or four. Again it's a great idea to seal your floor if it's a stained concrete floor. That's going to make maintaining this floor tons easier. So once you have that sealed, things are pretty simple. Make sure you keep that floor nice and clean, that's going to be great for everybody. It's going to look fantastic. Again Dustan here, the building manager and today we learned about cleaning and maintaining stained concrete floors.
