How is the maintenance of a floor when the Microconcrete is applied?
Microconcrete maintenance is carried out by washing with water and neutral soap. Periodically it is recommended to apply self-polishing waxes diluted in water, since these leave an acrylic residue that renews the soil protection layer.
For this maintenance it is not necessary to use any type of machinery since all these products can be applied with a simple mop or mop.
The frequency will depend on the use, but it is the same with which any floor is cleaned.
The sealering or polishing of the surface applied with Microconcrete will be carried out only when the floor due to wear and tear is tarnished, as if it were a marble or terrazzo floor, which in the case of a trafficked area may be in a semester or several years and in particular areas can be treated after several years or a decade. It must be understood that the materials manufactured are of high performance.
Are there any special recommendations for high traffic areas?
The Microconcrete is ideal for high traffic spaces due to its resistance and durability.
Our recommendation is to use high performance bicomponent polyurethane sealer as a final protector.
Is the microconcrete scratched?
Microconcrete is an extremely hard material. For its high resinous and additive content plus its lacquer. If it is true that the Microconcrete is not like parquet, it is easily scratched if you walk with heels because the heel can be marked and every time you polish it makes a significant wear.
Microconcrete is comparable to marble, terrazzo etc., which are also extremely hard, but over time, superficial waxes have lost their shine, by the grit of dirt and friction with the shoe sole, drag a chair dragging a box or just because of the passage of time could be “tarnished” over the years.
The advantage that the Microconcrete has over the marble, over the parquet and even over the tile, is that in the case of the passing of years we had some “picada” produced by a drop of a pointed screwdriver, blows with crockery etc, it is that with the Microconcrete, with a bit of paste of the same tone (reference or even RAL), as if it were a putty, the defects are repaired.
In the case of tile, to repair those bites, you would have to do work, replace the tile, if we find spare parts and if not ask the manufacturer if it has or if the tone matches the batch.
In the case of marble, work should still be done, but if we do not have stored marble of the model in question, since it is a natural stone, it is necessary for betas to be similar, because otherwise a patch would remain. The marble can be polished and polished like parquet to hide the bite, but the light would be sinking as if it were a car dent.
