Advantages of Polished Concrete FlooringHigh Durability
Polished concrete flooring is extremely robust and resilient, able to withstand a lot of heavy foot traffic and equipment. It's nearly impossible to scratch or dent it.Life-Span
Even in the most severe commercial environments, a correctly installed, sealed and maintained polished concrete floor may last a century or more. Because it has a longer lifespan, you'll be able to save money in the long run by never having to remove and replace worn or damaged flooring.Easy to Maintain
Polished concrete flooring is a fairly simple task to maintain. To keep the dirt at bay, dust mop or broom sweep daily. It's also necessary to damp mop it once a week to remove smudging, scratches, and watermarks while retaining gloss. You'll probably have to clean the floor more often if you choose a high-gloss finish.Aesthetically Appealing
The look of polished concrete floors is very sleek and stylish. It can complement any type of décor, from traditional to contemporary. You can also choose from a wide range of colors and finishes to create the perfect look for your home or business.Cost-Effective
Polished concrete floors range from as low as $2 per square foot to as high as $30 per square foot, depending on the degree of complexity. The majority of installations are fairly cost-effective, especially if you have an existing concrete slab that's already been prepared for staining, polishing, or application of a decorative coating or overlay.
The longevity and cost savings don't always come at the same time, but throughout its life because the only reason you'll have to replace it is if you get tired of the appearance, especially when you consider maintenance expenditures.Many Design Options
Today's paints have an almost limitless range of color and texture effects, many of which can replicate the appearance of numerous pricey materials. You may also personalize the surface with artistic etchings and stenciled designs.Hygienic
Concrete that has been properly finished and sealed can be quite resistant to liquids, especially water. Coatings may help waterproof the concrete by sealing it and obstructing pollutants from reaching the concrete.
Anti-microbial treatments are also possible for many coatings. High-quality concrete flooring shouldn't have cracks or fissures
on the surface that may trap particles and germs and foster bacteria.Slip-Resistant
Slippery floors can occur in any environment, but they may also be prevented by applying a non-slip epoxy finish to provide texture and avoid falls and injuries.Chemical-Resistant
Concrete floors are porous, yet concrete floors can be sealed with concrete sealer, a chemical-resistant epoxy paint to protect them from strong chemicals (alkalis and acids) and corrosion.No VOC
Concrete floors pose no health risks because they don't include hazardous Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) such as hardwood flooring, vinyl carpets, or synthetic carpets.
