Why Choose Steel Wood Floor Pads?

Steel wool floor pads possess many features and benefits that make them suitable for use in a wide range of different applications.

Time is Money. Steel wool floor pads are more absorbent, stronger, and more effective at cleaning the grime off floors than synthetic floor pads so the job can be done more efficiently.

When properly used with crystallizers or polishing compounds on marble, granite, travertine and terrazzo floors it is one of the most effective and lowest cost solutions to floor care.

Bargain priced pads are not always better. Synthetics may cost less up front, but it takes several synthetic floor pads to do the job of just ONE Steel Wool floor pad.

The QUALITY of the polishing, crystallizing, or stripping is superior with STEEL WOOL floor pads. Steel Wool pads are made up of thousands of tough steel fibers that provide better contact at the surface at the optimal angle to produce a SMOOTHER FINISH or a MIRROR-LIKE finish that will make your floor POP!
