While concrete polished flooring is used more for commercial flooring than residential flooring, remember that concrete floors are becoming more popular in residential applications as well. As more and more of our clients who have concrete floors are learning, the cost benefit and easy no-wax advantage of concrete polishing can be a good cost benefit. The beautiful shine that concrete polishing creates means that there is rarely a need to wax the polished floor. There are new high-gloss finishes never need to be waxed or have coatings applied in order to keep their shine. The polishing process is similar to sanding. Large machines are used to grind down the the concrete surface to the smoothness and shine desired. Once a new concrete floor has cured properly the sky is the limit to your final look and feel.
Here are some other great qualities of concrete floor polishing:
- Low maintenance over the life of the floor
- Bright, clean and glossy finish
- Very easy to clean; the best choice is a neutral pH cleanser
- Most types of concrete can be finished off with different levels of sheen, from matte to mirror-like
- Remember you can choose from an unlimited color and texture options
- There are options to embed objects into the concrete for an individual look
- Really looks great with decorative borders and designs
Some Additional Information Keith Wants To Share With You:
Almost any structurally sound concrete floor can be polished. Keep in mind:
Understand that before polishing new concrete, you must wait until the concrete has cured to sufficient hardness (generally 14 to 28 days after placement).
Be aware that existing floors that need extensive patching or are extremely soft and porous may not be good candidates for polishing. A simple inspection from Keith will let you know your options.
You do have options for badly spalled surfaces, you may need to remove the surface layer of concrete using a scarifier.
Mobile concrete polishing services can be accomplished with or without the acid stain process to create a highly polished shine. Concrete floors can even be honed down to expose the aggregate within the concrete, often creating dramatic textured looks with polished.
