Question: How do you know when you have done enough work on each grit when polishing with the satellite padsAnswer:
- You want to make sure and run the pads slow with water so each grit is processing the floor to its maximum ability. This is typically a visual aspect that our customers pick up on really quickly when they start using the pads.
- It is always recommended to cross cut your floor. Meaning, cut it North and South, then going over your floor once more East and West direction. More often than not cross cutting the floor like this is enough use with the pad.
- Never use double the grit value (skip steps). For example if you use a 100 grit pad, your next pad should be 200 grit, then 400 grit.
- To start the polishing process (typically our 50 grit satellite) and you are not getting the floor 'even'....you would need to drop a grit because your not being aggressive enough. Polishing is more of where you start a floor. Starting at too high of a grit, or hurrying your initial steps will result in a lesser quality end result.
