What does burnishing do to a floor?

Author: Mock Webware |

Burnishing a floor is a process of using a high-speed floor buffer or burnisher, which is a machine with a rotating pad that spins at a high speed, to polish a floor. The main purpose of burnishing is to create a high-gloss shine on the floor surface. Burnishing works by applying friction and heat to the floor surface which causes the surface to become smooth and shiny. The high-speed rotation of the burnishing pad and the weight of the machine help to create the desired shine.
Burnishing can also help to harden the surface of the floor, making it more resistant to scratches, scuffs, and wear. Additionally, it can help to level out the surface of the floor, filling in small scratches and scuffs and creating a smoother surface.
