(54)METHOD AND TOOL FOR CLEANING A POLISHED HARD FLOOR SURFACE OF STONE OR STONE-LIKE MATERIAL


(57) The present document discloses a tool for treating a hard surface. The tool comprises a flexible pad having an active treatment surface presenting abrasive particles bonded to the pad. The pad comprises an open, lofty, three dimensional non-woven web, including a plurality of fibers, which are adhered to each other at their points of mutual contact. The fibers are bonded to each other by a primary binder and/or by being melt-bonded. The abrasive particles are bonded to the material of the pad by a secondary binder. The abrasive particles are present throughout the secondary binder. The pad presents a first portion (P1) wherein said abrasive particles are present in a first concentration and a second portion (P2, P2') which is substantially free from diamond particles. The abrasive particles comprise diamond particles having an average diameter of 0.1 to 30 µm, preferably between 0.1 and 15 µm and most preferably between 5 and 15 µm.
