The Benefits of Polishing Concrete

Increased Density
The polishing process increases the density and compression strength (hardness) of concrete floors making them much more resistant to abrasions and impacts.

Low Maintenance
A polished concrete floor will never require stripping, re-coating or re-waxing. In fact, because the penetration of oil, water and other substances is minimized with the polishing process, maintenance requirements are significantly reduced. In addition, polishing eliminates dusting and forklift tire marks.

Easy to Clean
Occasional auto scrubbing, dust mopping or damp mopping with a neutral cleaner is all you need to keep the surface clean and shiny. We also offer special polished concrete cleaners and conditioners that clean and leave behind a dirt-resistant film. With a basic cleaning routine, polished concrete floors will retain their luster for years.

Improved Safety
Polishing concrete floors produces a nearly perfect reflection, creating an extremely pleasing aesthetic. Thanks to the mechanical concrete polishing process, customers can choose the finish they like—high gloss, semi-gloss or matte. Polishing concrete floors also increases the brightness of the area as ambient lighting is increased by up to 30%.

Increased Cost Savings
With a reduction in regular required maintenance, you save both time and money, increasing your cost savings.

Reduced Dusting
Regular concrete floors produce dust. A polished concrete floor on the other hand eliminates such dusting.
