Benefits of Polishing Existing Concrete Floor

Shiner Surface

Shiner Surface

The most obvious benefit of investing in concrete floor polishing is to achieve a mirror-like surface. Though this can be controlled, polishing will leave your aged floors with smoother, shinier surfaces.

Improved Lifespan

Durability

Polishing your existing industrial or commercial concrete floors will help increase their lifespan. With floor polishing, your floors become stronger and resilient to impacts from heavy equipment and traffic in the space.

While the lifespan of polished concrete flooring depends on the professionalism of your specialist, floor polishing is highly durable and outlasts other floor covering options like carpeting and wood laminates. This advantage ultimately helps save money in the long run.

Ease of maintenance

Easy to maintenance

If you are having difficulties maintaining your old industrial concrete floors, polishing it might be the solution they need. Polished concrete floors are easier to maintain and clean. Polished floor maintenance options are simple and include broom sweeping and dust mopping to prevent dirt. Also, weekly damp-mopping will help remove scuffs and smudging, restoring gloss.

Polishing your old industrial concrete floors is an excellent investment you won’t regret.

How the BECOSAN® system for polishing existing concrete floors works

At BECOSAN®, we are a reputable floor polishing company that understands what every floor requires. We first study the conditions of the floor to know the best approach to polish it. 

Though our polishing service is technical and complex, here are the overview processes involved:

1. Grinding

We start by grinding the surface, which helps remove the micro-roughness of the concrete floor. This also opens the floors’ pores to absorb BECOSAN® Densifier.

2. Densification

The next step is to release our densifier unto the ground surface. Since the surface’s pores are open, the densifier easily penetrates and reacts with the lime content within the concrete substrate. This chemical reaction aims to produce a denser concrete surface, bind dust particles, and reduce abrasion wear.

3. Sealing

Floor polishing in industrial applications requires durable, strong sealing. Water-based chemicals are a suitable choice since they penetrate the substrate, forming a non-film coating with enhanced performance.

4. Designated finish

Finishing helps increase the durability of industrial floors by giving them a more compact and denser surface. Depending on the intended use of the floors, you can choose between Matt-PLUS, Semi-Gloss, and High-Gloss.

Finishing options for polishing old concrete floors

Again, three different finishing options for polished concrete on existing slab are available: Matt, semi-gloss and high gloss. Here is how they work:

Matte

Matt is ideal for applications where gloss finishing is not required, such as parking areas. This option involves two steps and is not as detailed as other options.

Semi-Gloss

This option involves a four-step procedure, and while it offers more luminosity than matt, it ranks below high gloss.

High-Gloss

High-gloss finishing is the most detailed of the three available options in concrete floor polishing. It involves a 6-step procedure and is the most preferred option for most of our customers.

FAQ : Concrete floor grinding

Though the processes involved in floor polishing include grinding the floor to level areas with small height differences, polishing an existing concrete floor is not a levelling job. However, you can expect your floor with a levelled surface after polishing.

One major advantage of polished concrete is its high durability. Polished concrete can last for several decades, depending on its use and maintenance. At BECOSAN®, we offer a 10-year guarantee on our concrete floor treatment against dust formation.

With the several benefits of polished concrete, you want to ask if concrete floor polishing is expensive. The good news is concrete floor polishing is a cost-effective option to bring back your floors to life.

However, the cost of polished concrete varies with a few factors. Factors like the current condition and size of the floor contribute to how much to budget for polishing an existing concrete floor. Also, your choice of finishing option can be a determinant factor when estimating how much it costs to polish a concrete floor.
