Benefits of Polished Concrete
Due to its low cost, long life and durability, Polished Concrete has been used in warehouses and industrial facilities for many years. With the invention of the dry polishing system, polished concrete is now used in residential, retail, commercial and decorative concrete applications also. The aesthetic beauty, and ability to customize can be used by everyone looking for a beautiful, low maintenance, healthy floor.
Polished Concrete floors eliminate the need to strip and wax your floors, while also eliminating the cost of labor or materials to do so. Aside from the occasional damp mopping, polished concrete floors will require very minimal maintenance.
Polished concrete floors are second to none in durability and appearance. Polished concrete floors can be customized to meet your flooring desires. They can be burnished to a high shine, can be dyed an assortment of colors, and can include many decorative options.
Polished concrete is one of the most economical, cost effective flooring alternatives. The reduced costs associated with saved energy, maintenance reduction, and long-lasting durability makes polished concrete a budget sensible, beautiful, flooring option. Because polished concrete flooring is grinding your slab on grade, they replace the need to install expensive floor coverings. They are very low maintenance and you no longer need to replace or rip up worn flooring. Studies have shown that polished concrete floors can decrease your electricity bill because they are highly reflective and require less light to brighten a room
There is no comparison to other floor systems when it comes to the life of a polished concrete floor. Even the most durable carpet, linoleum or VCT floors will require replacement at some time, whether it is ten or even twenty years later. Polished concrete floors will be there as long as the slab exists, whether that be forty or fifty years later.
Polished concrete floors do not trap mold, mildew, dust mites, bacteria, allergens, or moisture like other floors do. Because the floors are polished, they are not porous, meaning nothing can get inside. Polished concrete is a great alternative for anyone who suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues.
Increased Ambient Lighting
Polished concrete naturally enhances the beauty of your floor and reduces the cost of lighting. Reduced lighting load and better lighting on existing floors are a definite benefit to the end user. This saves you money on not only lighting costs, but helps reduce the load on air conditioning systems, as they do not have to remove as much heat generated by lighting.
More Slip Resistant Than Other Coating Options
Polished concrete floor surfaces meet, and most often exceed, OSHA and ADA standards for slip resistance. Kept clean and clear of debris, polished concrete floors tend to be less slippery than waxed surfaces.
Polished Areas Can Be Put Into Service Immediately After the Process Is Complete
Due to the cleanliness of the process and the lack of toxic or hazardous chemicals the floor can be polished without interruption of service. Polished Concrete can save you time, as the work can be completed in sections with no drying time reducing the inconvenience of having to cease operation or leave the home.
