Polished concrete is becoming an increasingly popular flooring option for industrial warehouses, logistics centres, shopping centres, production facilities or storage rooms.
Despite its growing popularity, many people still wonder if it’s worth the price.
Well it is worth it. It’s actually a very economical option compared to the rest of choices that are currently on the market. And as for the quality and benefits of polished concrete, it also shows that it’s a very good option for flooring.
Polished concrete undergoes a chemical densifier and a grinding process that not only makes it more attractive, but also harder and smoother. Polished concrete is a reliable option and with the correct maintenance, you can avoid future concerns.
1. Polished concrete provides greater safety
Spaces with untreated concrete floors are full of tiny dust particles that emerge from the concrete into the atmosphere.
Not only are these dust particles not great for your health, but they’re also going to increase your maintenance cost.
This doesn´t happen with polished concrete. The grinding process reduces the porousness of the concrete and prevents any dust particles from finding their way out into the air.
2. Minimizes concrete fluid absorption
Untreated concrete is porous and easily stained. 0il or dyes are quickly absorbed and are impossible to remove.
Polishing concrete minimizes fluid absorption. For this reason, stains find it difficult to adhere to the polished concrete.
3. Polished concrete is durable
The process of chemical densification and grinding makes polished concrete less likely to get chipped or dented. It’s protected against the daily wear and tear. Adequate maintenance guarantees a long-lasting concrete floor.
4. Polished concrete isn’t slippery
The high degree of shine, achieved by polishing a concrete floor, which can make us assume that it’s slippery. But as long as polished concrete floors are kept dry, they’re as safe as another flooring.
In fact, polished concrete is actually safer to walk on than linoleum when it has been waxed and safer than unpolished concrete.
Further, polished concrete reduces tire-wear. Machinery undergoes less tire-wear on polished concrete than on any other type of flooring because of the smoothness of the surface.
5. Polished finish Looks Amazing
Besides the practical and logistical benefits, polished concrete just looks amazing. It’s a great way to bring a little extra glamor to your space.
Because of the smoothness of the surface, polished concrete can actually reflect up to 30% more light than unpolished concrete. This will brighten your space and possibly lower electrical costs.
If you use polished concrete in your space, you are guaranteed a safer, brighter, and more reliable floor.
