Where can i buy a floor polisher/buffer in SG?

Post by GarethC » Wed, 18 Mar 2009 2:41 pm

Hi, i'm not sure how you guys do it, but i'd like to polish my marble & parquet flooring as its lost its shine. The only problem is that i cant find any consumer electronics store in Singapore which sells one.

I asked around and people usually just hire a company to come do it in their house once in a while, but i'd like to have the option of polishing it whenever i want to and as often as i want to myself.

I've tried the usual Courts/Harvey Norman/Best Denki etc and havent had any luck yet. If anyone has bought one before, please let me know where.

Tks :)

Yes I have, unfortunately i've had no luck there too.

I'm curious, do people actually polish their floors over here?

Most hire a contractor to have the floors reground & polished.

Here's one for a start:

Floor polishing equipment is quite specialised.
Not likely to be found at general hardware or DIY stores.

If you can handle professional equipment, a search in Google provides the following leads:

(e.g. Accord, Kang Sun, Buck, Atrac, etc.)

There's also a link at street directory (no space), but the URL gets censored on this site due to previous copyright issues.


Given the cost & size of professional floor polishing equipment, it may still be best to hire professionals when you need polishing to be done.


P.S. You're not wearing shoes inside, are you?

Thanks for the links Maneo & SMS, i'll check them out :)

My fiancee and I dont really wear any shoes indoors, but we do have two cats and a third just dropped on by last week. So there's a lot of vacuuming and mopping in the house and now the floors dont look as shiny as they did.

I used to have a hoover floor polisher back home and it was pretty convenient everytime the floor got a bit dull.
