What is Polished Concrete Flooring?
There are several reasons why polished concrete flooring has been growing in popularity over the last decade. Polished concrete is concrete that has been treated with a chemical densifier and then ground to create a smooth, finished look. The finer the diamond grit on the grinding pads used, the smoother and shinier the floor appears, ranging from matte to mirror-like finishes.
Why Businesses Choose Polished Concrete
A major benefit of this flooring choice is money savings – instead of installing a completely new floor with new materials, polished concrete makes use of the concrete flooring already present. Businesses can modernize and refresh their space without breaking the bank on completely new floors. This process also allows for the personalization of your flooring design with a wide range of stains and dyes, colors, finishes, and more. Plus, polished concrete’s shine also helps refract natural lighting, reducing the need for artificial lighting in your facility. This further lowers businesses’ energy and maintenance costs!
Another benefit of choosing polished concrete is lowering your company’s environmental impact. Less artificial lighting means less energy consumed. Most buildings are already built on a concrete slab, so grinding and polishing the concrete eliminates the material and resources needed to install a new floor covering – making polished concrete a green, environmentally-friendly flooring solution.
Other flooring materials like carpeting, hardwood and laminate may also contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), some of which are classed as carcinogens and greenhouse gases. So in addition to the resources consumed and chemicals released during the manufacturing process for these materials, these materials may also contain chemicals that are emitted as a breathable gas and have a negative effect on your health and the environment. Polished concrete doesn’t pose this potential health risk for employees and customers.
Unlike hardwood, carpet or tile, polished concrete also holds up to heavy traffic areas without showing signs of wear and tear, like chips or dents. Choices like tile or carpet may have to be replaced every 10 to 20 years which can be a major investment for businesses, but this isn’t the case for polished concrete. Easy to maintain with proper cleaning techniques, polished concrete flooring has an extremely long life span.
