Concrete polishing is a multi-step process that requires using the right tools and equipment in order to get the best results. Typically, polishing is accomplished using a concrete polisher that has a variable-speed setting and an array of diamond-like polishing wheels. The final surface of the concrete will have to be polished to a high finish in order to make the polishing process easier.
The surface of the concrete may also be polished using an impregnated, natural-looking polishing guard that extends 3-5mm into the pores of the concrete, to prevent any deep staining caused by oils and spills. If your existing concrete is in good shape, you can polish your surface to almost any standard, which will protect against wear.
If you have an existing floor in need of cement repair, or a whole new structure, cement polishing is a great floor choice. With the right equipment for grinding floors and the expertise, cement polishing contractors can sand down your concrete surfaces, whether they are new or old, and give them a polished look. Mechanically grinding the floor eliminates the uppermost layer of the older concrete, then polishing strengthens it, increasing its impact and wear resistance.
Decorative Polished Concrete offers several advantages other floor materials cannot compete with, especially in terms of durability, performance, and sustainability. Polished concrete has, in the past decade or so, emerged as one of the most popular floor solutions available in the modern market, thanks to its cost-effectiveness, easy-to-maintain, efficiency, clean-liness, and the ability to fit into both industrial and luxury environments in an aesthetic manner.
Decorative concrete, in the form of a polished floor, has become a logical choice because of the increased value it provides, as well as the fact that it is also capable of competing on an aesthetic level for any type of interior floor. In areas with heavy traffic, we find that concrete surfaces are better than any other flooring covering solution.
