What is polished concrete, and how is it made?
Polished concrete refers to a concrete floor that has been treated with a chemical densifier and ground down to expose the natural aggregate (stones) used in the mix. As the grinding process continues, the stones are exposed to finer and finer abrasives until they shine like marble or granite. The result is a smooth and glossy surface that can be stained or coloured to your preferences.
Examples of polished concrete in residential and commercial settings
Polished concrete has numerous applications in both residential and commercial settings. In the home, it can be used for kitchen and bathroom floors, countertops, shower walls, patios, and more. In businesses, polished concrete is often used in lobbies, retail environments, restaurants, office buildings, warehouses and manufacturing facilities.
How to care for polished concrete
Here are a few tips on how to properly maintain it:
• Vacuum regularly – Regular vacuuming helps keep dirt and debris from accumulating in the pores of the concrete, which can dull its shine.
• Use mats for high-traffic areas – Mats help protect your floor from wear and tear and keep dirt from being ground into the concrete.
• Use a sealant – A high-quality sealant will help protect your floor from staining and damage.
• Clean spills quickly – Spills should be cleaned up immediately to avoid staining.
• Don’t use harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners – They can damage the concrete and dull its shine.
• Use microfiber cloths – Using a microfiber cloth to dust or wipe down your floor will help keep it looking spotless.
Cons of polished concrete
Polished concrete has a few drawbacks, as it can be quite slippery when wet and is prone to staining if not sealed properly.
Additionally, the process of grinding and polishing can generate a significant amount of dust that must be contained and disposed of properly.
Finally, it is essential to note that the initial cost for polished concrete may be higher than other flooring options, such as carpet or vinyl.
Overall, the pros definitely outweigh the cons when it comes to polished concrete. With proper maintenance and cleaning, you can look forward to many years of beautiful, low-maintenance flooring that will last for decades. So if you’re looking for a durable and attractive long-term solution for your flooring needs, choose polished concrete.
