burnisher

A floor burnisher is a device that cleans and polishes hard floors. This kind of appliance has a wide base that houses a burnishing (polishing) pad that rotates at high speeds (higher than buffing machines) in order to clean the surface. It is pushed over surfaces that will not be damaged by the rotating pad (such as terrazzo and concrete) — using a handle to guide it. Floor burnisher machines vary in size, from home sized units to large burnishers that use propane to power the motor and are suitable for industrial sized areas. These large floor burnisher appliances are commonly used in office buildings, supermarkets, hospitals, and school facilities. (NOTE: Luckily, UDT’s products do NOT require any buffing or burnishing.
