No matter the state of your concrete floor, from decades-old to brand new, industrial polishing is the intelligent flooring choice. The Husqvarna HIPERFLOOR® System allows even the most decrepit-looking floors to be turned into a shiny surface of beauty.
Restoring an old concrete floor starts with an aggressive grinding to get rid of any old flooring material or concrete imperfections. This is a time-consuming task, even for experts in the field.
When the restoration process is finished, you won’t believe that it is the same piece of concrete that you started with. You can choose from many finish levels, from 800 grit to as high as 3000 grit diamond polish.
Where Do Polished Concrete Floors Work Best
Polished concrete is one of the most popular floor finishings for interior designers in homes, retail spaces and industrial settings like factories or warehouses. People in all settings love polished concrete floors because they are aesthetically pleasing, easy to maintain and last many decades.
Concrete can be polished to suit your needs and look the way you want. If you have a concrete slab anyway, they are simple to install because they need less added materials than other floor coverings like epoxy or vinyl. All you do is grind down a thin layer and polish the concrete, and it lasts for years.
Benefits Of Concrete Polishing
Polished concrete is a rugged flooring. It will stand up to the heaviest traffic but still looks beautiful in more delicate settings, such as art galleries.
Polished concrete is a great flooring option if you operate forklifts or other heavy equipment. They will stand up to the tires or whatever else might move across the floor.
A floor made of polished concrete won’t stain like some other flooring systems. You can spill things like oil or paint on it, and it is still easy to clean up. There aren’t other floor coverings that will do that, which makes polished concrete the smartest flooring option.
Why Is Polishing So Popular For Restoring Floors?
If you have an old concrete floor, it has been hardening for many years and is a perfect candidate for polishing. The hardness of aged concrete will withstand anything you can throw at it.
You don’t need to bring in new flooring when you restore by polishing the concrete. New flooring could need time to acclimate to your space, while a polish can be finished in the same amount of time.
Concrete that was installed properly doesn’t have to go to waste. You can restore it to a beautiful state that will last for decades. That is why concrete polishing is the smartest way to restore your floor.
