Everybody appreciates quality flooring. Unfortunately, many flooring options (such as marble, granite, and tile) can be more expensive than they’re worth. When you add in the time, money, and effort that goes into caring and cleaning these options the costs can become extreme. Because of this, homeowners and business owners have turned to a convenient solution; rather than shell out thousands of dollars for flooring that needs to be delicately cared for, they’ve begun to use concrete floor grinding.
With so many tools and attachments at their disposal, concrete companies and contractors are able to utilize concrete grinding beyond its original repair purposes. Now, concrete floors can be polished until they’re as shiny as marble — only much more durable. Let’s take a look at why you should be interested in concrete floor grinding.
- Attractive look: In addition to projecting a clean and professional appearance, polished concrete floors are excellent at reflecting light. Garages, lobbies, and even restaurants are all interested in brightening up their buildings, and concrete floor polishing is the easiest way to see a huge result.
- Longer maintenance life: Polished floors are exceptionally easy to clean as they only require the occasional damp mopping. Because they get their shiny and reflective appearance through the grinding of the concrete beneath, the need for expensive and messy waxes or coatings is eliminated. This saves you both on the materials and the labor required to apply them. Best of all, polished concrete floors are so durable that they can resist staining from oil and chemical spills.
- Resistant to foot traffic: Concrete can withstand, on average, 3000 psi of pressure. The combination of this fact and its low-maintenance requirements means that your business could be booming and you wouldn’t need to take the time to shut aisles or sections down to seek out repairs. At the same time, you won’t need to move anything around in order to wax and strip the floor!
There are a number of concrete services that may improve the look of your home and business (such as concrete raising and slab jacking), but polished concrete floors offer more than just a pleasing aesthetic. If you’re looking to upgrade your garage, office, or other professional space, turn to concrete floor grinding; you won’t be disappointed.
