Benefits of Polished Concrete Floors

There are several benefits to concrete grinding and polishing for floors in commercial and industrial applications. 

Durable

Polished concrete floors offer all the benefits of regular concrete including great durability. Polished concrete floors hold up well, even in high traffic areas, as they will not stain, chip, or dis-colour. Concrete grinding and polishing also eliminates the need for messy waxing or frequent resurfacing.

Low Maintenance

Grinding and polishing concrete floors creates a durable surface, which is much longer lasting than other surfaces including vinyl or stone tile. Polished concrete floors require little maintenance other than occasional sweeping or moping to remove dust or debris from the surface. Additionally, depending on traffic, polished concrete floors may need to be refinished every five to ten years to restore the shine and beauty. However, even this process is quick and requires little downtime.

Low Cost

Concrete grinding and polishing can create a beautiful surface that resembles stone or other costlier materials. However, concrete grinding and polishing is quick and affordable when compared to the installation and material costs of other flooring options.

Aesthetic Appeal

Concrete grinding and polishing brings out the natural beauty of any type of concrete. In addition, when concrete stains are applied over polished concrete, they can provide the look of expensive polished stone including marble or granite. Polished concrete can provide a stylish and beautiful look for years to come with little up keep or maintenance.

Environmentally Friendly

Concrete grinding and polishing is an environmentally friendly and sustainable flooring solution. There is a low amount of waste produced during installation and the long-lasting properties of this flooring as well as the ability for polished concrete to improve indoor air quality by reducing or eliminating dust, mould, and mildew.

Reflective Surface

Grinding and polishing concrete floors creates a high gloss surface that reflects light. This can lead to the creation of a safer environment as well as reduce lighting costs even in large buildings, warehouses, or factories.
