How Polished Concrete Floors Can Transform Your Commercial Facility

Polished concrete floors can completely rejuvenate your commercial facility, in a variety of ways. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, but they also serve a functional purpose as well.


Oftentimes, people are unaware of the benefits of commercial polished concrete flooring, and opt for other flooring choices, such as laminate flooring or tile.


However, these flooring decisions are often quickly regretted, and we receive a lot of inquiries about replacing tile and laminate flooring with industrial polished concrete.


Continue reading to find out more about how polished concrete flooring can benefit your commercial facility.


More Light Reflectivity And A Brighter Workspace


A brighter workspace often leads to a more productive work environment, according to experts. This is because a light and airy workspace breeds happy employees, and happy employees get more work done.


One of the simplest ways to increase the light reflectivity in your workspace is by the addition of a polished concrete flooring system.

The way this works is that, once the concrete substrate is ground down, it produces a simple and bright shine. This, coupled with overhead and natural light produced through the

workspace, frequently create an increased amount of brightness.


This brightness is easy to achieve, and cost effective as well, making the addition of a polished concrete floor in your commercial facility perfect for your bottom line. We highly recommend hiring a commercial concrete contractor to assess your facility and provide you with a new polished concrete floor.


Improved Durability Of Old Floor


Concrete polishing is one of the most effective ways to make your existing concrete floor more durable.


The process of installing a polished concrete floor requires that the old concrete substrate be ground down, which removes the top surface of the concrete floor. This top portion of the old concrete floor most likely was damaged or worn down in some way.


Getting rid of this section of the floor, and polishing the stronger portion underneath, provides a durability that was not previously achieved.


This durability makes it easier to operate on the new flooring system, and gives you added security that your floor will work seamlessly during production.


Most Cost Effective Flooring Option


As mentioned above, polished concrete flooring is achieved by grinding down the original concrete substrate, and polishing the remaining top layer.


You may have noticed that there is no other floor that is being installed on top of the concrete substrate, much like what happens when you install a wood or laminate flooring system.


Most other flooring options have high costs, because they require extensive labor in order to remove the old flooring system and install the new floor. This process can take days and can lead to production delays.


However, concrete polishing is different, in that it simply uses the flooring system that is already in place. There is no need for additional labor hours, or the need for equipment to remove an old floor.


For this reason, many commercial facilities opt for this choice, because it is best for their bottom line. Also, since there are no other materials involved, and no need to throw materials away, concrete polishing is the most environmentally friendly option as well.
