Simple Maintenance Tasks for Concrete Floor Screeds 

Concrete floor screeds have become a fad nowadays because of their role in functionality and aesthetics. In general, they are utilised to cover structural concrete flooring to either solid or precast concrete floor slab. This, in an effort to deliver a flat as well as a smooth surface that can be easily complemented by other finishing materials such as tiles, carpets, floorboards, and so forth. 

Putting all these into consideration, it can be said that concrete screed flooring in Singapore is a worthwhile investment, especially when used in logistics facilities and the like. However, to make the most of it, it’s best to perform thorough and regular maintenance tasks. Some of them are elaborated below. 

Use vacuum sweeper

Depending on the type and quantity of the dirt, a considerable amount of dirt may need to be vacuumed away before wet cleaning. Use a spatula or blade to gently scrape away any stubborn dirt left over from the construction process, such as varnishes and paints, mortar, dispersion paint, tar, and adhesives.

Remove mild soiling 

One of the basics of concrete floor screeds maintenance is removing light and mild soiling. Here, a regular scrubber dryer or pads can be used in the process. Reduced contact pressure and slower roller brush speeds are used by the scrubber dryer.

 Depending on the quantity and type of dirt, a maintenance and intermediate cleaner for industrial use diluted to between 0.5 and 3 percent would be an appropriate cleaning agent. Additionally, we advise adding an automatic cleaning agent dosing feature to the machine. The floor can be used once more without additional scrubbing or rinsing.

Deep cleaning

Deep cleaning concrete floor screeds need to be done on a regular basis to remove dirt, oil, and grease that cannot be removed during maintenance cleaning. Strong scrubber dryers with a roller scrubbing head are necessary for this. 

When cleaning, use a two-step process with full contact pressure and green scrubbing brushes or pads, if the floor covering permits. To prevent the floor from being excessively wet or the cleaning solution from drying out too quickly, the procedure should always be carried out extensively and carefully..

It’s best to utilise an all-around deep cleaner or an intense deep cleaner as the specialised cleaning agent if protective films need to be removed in addition to oil and grease. For removing protective films, the cleaning agent is diluted to 50%.

Remove skid marks 

Use a cleaning chemical that is free of Nitrilotriacetic Acid (a kind of carcinogen) and designed especially for this purpose to get rid of forklift skid marks or tire abrasions. Along the way, utilise a cleaning agent sprayer or spray bottle, then scrub the area with a dry scrubbing pad.

Summing up

These are only some of the simple maintenance tasks that can be performed so as to make the most of concrete screed flooring in Singapore. Yes. It may require effort and a certain amount of cash, but at the end of the day, they’re all going to be worth it and more.
