Tip of the Week:
All About Hard Floor Pads

Why are there so many floor pads to choose from for performing floor care services? Each pad is designed to produce different results, depending on the procedure being performed and the type of floor finish the pad is being used on.

All floor pads are a blend of polyester and/or nylon fibers, which are bonded together with synthetic resin and then impregnated with abrasives. How agressive a pad is depends on the type of fibers and abrasives used to make it.

The open web construction of floor pads allows for greater soil removal and easy cleaning. Pads can be used on both sides and then cleaned under running water.

Conventional Pads are for use with slow speed machines of 175 to 800 RPM. Ultra High Speed Pads are for use with high speed machines of 1000 - 3000 RPM.

Manufacturers colorize pads, which makes it easy to choose the right pad for the job. The darker the pad, the more aggressive. For example, black pads are used for stripping floors and white pads are used for polishing floors. Manufacturer colors may vary.
