How do I clean the white painted concrete floors in my apartment?

how on earth do I clean these crazy floors? The paint isn't sealed - it's floor paint - and the floor isn't totally even.

I have a basement apartment in San Francisco. My landlord was cool enough to ask for my input on changes he was making before I moved in. When I initially looked at the apartment, the floors were painted a horrific poop brown. I suggested gray. I was then told he planned on pulling up all the paint and just staining the concrete. Even better!
Unfortunately, the floors had been sealed at some point during their lifetime, and he was only able to get through the kitchen before deciding to paint the rest of the floors bright white due to how impossible it was to pull up the paint. It looks great... aside from the obvious exteme dirtiness issue. Thus far I've been in denial, but I'm thinking its time to attempt to clean them in some other way than sweeping, because they are looking sad. Does anyone have any tips?
