I have fiber mesh in my concrete. How can I remove the little fibers that stick up?

 Q.-  I am interested in your product to stain annd seal my concrete, however our builder used glass reinforced fibers in our concrete and several stick up a little although its mostly smooth. Before I stain and seal, what is the best way to remove these ends of these random fibers so the sealer goes on smooth?
Hello Kathy,
A.-  You can use a floor buffing machine with the scrubber pads. You could also use the sanding pad if needed. However, the sealer may help the fibers to lay down without the need to remove them. Perhaps you should do a small test in a closet or out of the way place, to see, before renting a buffing machine.
I hope this helps
