Burnishing Floors

Burnishing floors will give them a high gloss or "wet" look and will also extend the life of the floor finish. Burnishing can only be performed if you are already using a high-speed buffer and the finishes it is made to work with. Using a high speed on finish that is not appropriate will burn the wax right off the floor.

Sweep and damp mop the floor first so that it is clean. Often burnishing can be performed without applying any additional gloss or spray buffing the floor however this may be necessary with certain floors such as marble and stone.
