Flooring should be periodically burnished using a Scotch-Brite Purple Diamond floor pad to maintain gloss. A suggested burnishing schedule is:
- High traffic areas: 1-2 times per week

- Low traffic areas: 1-2 times per month
When traffic lanes are no longer returned to gloss by burnishing, an additional application of the stone floor protector should be applied.
