What are the Benefits of Polished Concrete Flooring?

Businesses of all sizes are turning to polished concrete flooring because of its vast benefits. This type of flooring has been around for many years, but the advancement in technology has made it more beneficial for businesses to utilize it in their buildings. The many benefits of this type of flooring include:

  • Immense durability
  • Decreased level of maintenance
  • Sustainability
  • Beauty

Durability

Concrete on its own is durable, but concrete floors that have been polished have an increased durability. This is a result of the damaged level of concrete, whether gashes, water damage, or general stress damage, being removed during the grinding process, replacing it with a strengthened and hardened surface through the polishing process.

Decreased Maintenance

Polished concrete flooring resists stains and normal wear and tear from high levels of traffic or regular use, which means there is a lower need for regular maintenance. This translates into lower costs in the long run. When you polish concrete floors, finishing with a sealant, you make the floor resistant to grease, spills, and stains. This means less labor is spent washing and maintaining the floor, once again decreasing the cost of your floor. In addition, concrete flooring that has been polished is easier on tires, which means if you drive cars, trucks, or even forklifts on the flooring, the tires will not wear down as easy as they would if they were used on other materials, allowing you to need replacement tires less often.

Sustainability

Have you ever heard of someone having to replace their concrete flooring? Concrete is a part of the slab of your foundation, which means that it will never need to be replaced. This is in stark contrast to other flooring materials that will need to be replaced whether a few years or many years down the road - the bottom line is that replacement is imminent, but not with concrete flooring.

Beauty

Some of the richest buildings in the world have polished concrete floors – even the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas boasts them! They are comparable to the beauty of marble floors at a fraction of the price and with higher levels of durability.

Polished concrete flooring is one of the most durable, beautiful, and cost-effective options for any business. This flooring type can be done for you by the professionals or done on your own with the rental of a few pieces of polished concrete equipment. Transform your business today with this versatile flooring!
