Wet look gloss floors have become increasingly trendy in industrial, retail, hospitality and other commercial settings. These floors need to not only look fantastic, but also meet safety and durability standards as well. These floors include non-resilient types such as concrete, tile and terrazzo as well as resilient floors such as linoleum, rubber, sealed wood and vinyl.

The chemicals involved in maintaining "wet look" gloss include a neutral cleaner, scrubbing detergent, a stripper and a finish or a sealer.

Matching up the right cleaning, coating, polishing and finishing chemicals for the job has become easier, as manufacturers are offering more products for specific flooring types as well as product lines and systems that address comprehensive floor care needs.
