Buffer pads are floor cleaning equipment that remove scuffs and black heel marks from the floor while polishing the floor to enhance it to the desired appearance. The cleaning equipment removes the light scuff marks and dirt, resulting in a sparkling finish and shine. Floor buffer pads are suitable for many types of floors, including terrazzo, concrete surface, granite, and sheet vinyl. The pads use rotary machines with varying speeds. Floor pads come in different designs and weights. Browse the extensive selections of floor buffer pads at Staples to find the best units for commercial and residential purposes.

Color-coding design for floor scrubber pads
The floor pads have a specific industry-standard color-coding system that determines the specifications of the pads to help in understanding the buffing levels. It’s important to take care not to select a rough-surface pad that can ruin the floor and cost extra repair expenses. Choose the floor pad that is the correct one for a particular type of floor. The red buffing floor pads are suitable for light-duty cleaning as they’re gentle on floors. Use them on almost all types of floors. Blue pads are for heavy-duty cleaning, while brown pads are usable on wet or dry surfaces. Brown models are compatible with water-based floor finish stripping solutions to erase soiled floor finishes. Choose brown pads when cleaning heavily soiled hard floor surfaces like concrete.

Consider the different sizes
The size of the floor pads is essential as it determines the productivity of the work. A variety of pad sizes are available, based on the size and type of the floor cleaning task or project. The most popular sizes are 13-inch, 17-inch, and 20-inch pads, but other sizes are available. The choice of sizes also depends on the size of the floor area. Compact floor areas, especially domestic floors, require small size pads, while industrial-size floors require buffer pads with high capacities.

Selecting the right buffing machines
In addition to considering the color and size of the floor buffer pad, it’s essential to match the pads with the task and the machine you plan to use. Generally, a machine with a speed of 175 to 300 revolutions per minute (rpm) will match well with standard pads. Higher speed machines require high-speed buffing pads.

What floor surfaces can you clean with buffer pads?
Floor buffer pads are suitable for use in cleaning coated and uncoated resilient, concrete substrate. The appropriate floor surfaces include terrazzo, sheet vinyl, concrete, and granite floor finishes. They’re not suitable for use on wood.

What is the lifespan of buffer pads?
The lifespan of buffer pads depends on various conditions related to the amount of foot traffic and how much staining the floors receive. How long they last also depends on the frequency of cleaning, the speed of the machine, and how solid the surface is.

How do you know when it is time to discard and replace with new pads?
It’s easy to see when the pads are worn out. Floor pads are usable on both sides until the coatings wear out entirely. Once this occurs, the yellow interior layer emerges, indicating it’s time to replace the buffer pad.
