Below are two tips to follow if you want your cleaner to polish your floors.
Consider how polished you want the floors to be
You'll need to consider how polished you want the floors to be. If for instance, you want the floors to be as polished and glossy as possible, then the cleaner will need to know this, as in this situation, they may not only need to use the floor polisher at high speed but may also need to run it over each floor more than once, to ensure that they make it as shiny as they can. This may result in them needing to dedicate their entire shift to the floor polishing if you want them to achieve this level of shine in several rooms.
However, you might not want them to maximise the floor's shininess if, for example, you're concerned that the floors might become slippery or if you don't want them to be so glossy and reflective that you can see every hair or speck of dust that lands on them. In this situation, the cleaner may need to use the floor polisher on its lowest speed and only run it over each floor once to buff away the dullness, without adding too much shine. They may also be able to finish the polishing quite quickly and so if you tell them this beforehand, they'll know that that they'll have time during that shift to get a few other cleaning tasks done, too and will know to bring some other cleaning supplies with them for these other tasks.
Wash the floors very thoroughly before polishing them
You should ensure that either you or your cleaner washes the floors very thoroughly before they use the floor polisher on them. This is particularly important if the floors haven't been cleaned in a long time and have a tough layer of grime on them. The reason you must do this is that whilst this equipment might lift some of the grime off the floor surface, floor polishers are not designed for this purpose and the cleaner will not be using a detergent when they do the polishing work (meaning that there will be no cleaning chemical that would break up this grime).
Because of this, if you don't remove the grime or dirt from one of your floors before the cleaner polishes it, not only will they struggle to make the floors shiny (as the grime will be a barrier that will reduce the polishing equipment's effectiveness) but the grime may also cling to the floor polisher's brush bristles. This could then result in the polisher transferring dirt to another, cleaner floor. Given this, you must ensure the floors you want the cleaner to polish are spotlessly clean.
