Polished Concrete may just be right for you!
Some people think of polished concrete and may only think of industrial use, but that’s not all there is to it. Polished concrete is making its mark in commercial, industrial, and even in homes. Today we’re going to discuss the benefits of polished concrete in any of those situations. Perhaps you’ll see that polished concrete is the best way for you to go!
For your home, polished concrete is the best option if you’re looking for something that’s going to last. It’s no as vulnerable to damage as other options and doesn’t need to be replaced. Because it’s so easy to clean, polished concrete also doesn’t hold on to dust, dirt or things that aggravate your allergies. Best of all is the savings. Traditional floor covering materials aren’t required when the slab is used as the finished surface.
For your business, you have many of the same benefits. It’s more cost effective to use the original concrete slab, and maintenance costs are lower.
Polished concrete is also very resistant to high foot traffic, making waxing and stripping the floor unnecessary. They’re also easy to clean, requiring only occasional damp mopping. The shining surface easily resists the marks of things like forklifts and staining from oil and chemical spills.

Polished concrete will also help to lower energy costs because of it’s high gloss finish. This finish will reflect artificial lighting. These floors are great for hotels, restaurants and other buildings that want that bright, clean professional image. The high shine makes this a great alternative for those that can’t afford or don’t want things like marble or granite flooring.
