Last month ETC of Henderson hosted a workshop dealing with best practices in floor care and maintenance at our facility in Stuart. One of the topics discussed was their new floor care system using Diamond by Gorilla pads. We thought some of our customers would like a run down of this new system.
Their Diamond Polishing System was developed for natural stone floors like concrete, terrazzo, granite, and marble. It uses 4 pads (Red 400, White 800, Yellow 1500, Green 3000) and water.
Step 1 - Red 400 Pad
Use water slurry as a lubricant. Use a low speed rotary machine or an auto scrubber with Diamond by Gorilla 400 pad. Move side-by-side for 7-10 passes. Then change direction and repeat process. Use a wet-vac to pick up water slurry between each pass. Clean area well before moving to next step.
Step 2 - White 800 Pad
Use water slurry as lubricant and repeat Step 1 using a Diamond by Gorilla 800 pad.
Step 3 - Yellow 1500 Pad
Use water slurry as lubricant and repeat Step 1 using a Diamond by Gorilla 1500 pad. Let floor dry completely before moving to next step.
Step 4 - Green 3000 Pad
Do not use water. Use a High Speed or UHS electric or propane burnisher with Diamond by Gorilla 3000 pad for 3-5 passes.
Clean floors with neutral cleaner and red pad.
Polish floors using Diamond by Gorilla 3000 green pad.
