No – it doesn’t. If the concrete flooring in an retail, commercial or industrial space hasn’t been ground back, the roughness and micro abrasions of its surface will continue to capture dust and cause it to build up and create ongoing maintenance and slip hazard issues.
You’ll know from your own experience (and your tenants certainly will), that it’s incredibly difficult to clean untreated concrete, and no matter how often you do, it will build up again straight away. It’s just time and labor they are continually pouring down the drain.
Wear and tear from heavy traffic across the floors causes dust to rise to the surface, and the cycle continues.
Beyond the ongoing cleaning issues it also poses a significant risk to stock, machinery, and the health of the tenants staff.
Dusty concrete flooring will cost you, your sellers and your tenants a lot of money, but there’s a simple, low-cost solution to this problem.
