Specialists in providing high quality polished concrete floors across Melbourne
Polished Concrete is becoming an extremely popular flooring alternative for industrial, commercial and residential areas due to its high durability, aesthetic appeal and easy to clean surface. Polished concrete is often seen in retail establishments, warehouses and even homes.
Concrete polishing is a system in which either new or old concrete is ground for exposure using a triple head planetary stand up grinding, minor cracks and surface imperfections are grouted and filled, the concrete is then densified to harden it and then polished using a series of diamond pads that slowly get finer which allows the concrete surface itself to be polished. A penetrating sealer instead of a topical sealer is used in the final stage to enhance the floor and help it to maintain its durability over a long period of time. Usual traffic may resume on the area immediately following the above process, therefore there is no need to wait days for full cure-reducing down-time and therefore expenses!
Polished concrete is extremely durable, versatile and easy to clean. It is a great alternative for high traffic areas and given the durability of this finish, there is no need to worry about damage from high heels or even pets claw marks, as opposed to Timber floors, where activity such as this could leave unsightly damage and ultimately costly repairs.
Cleaning a polished floor is an effortless and an inexpensive task, pick up the dust particles by using a dust mop with a microfibre pad and then mop with clean water, or for larger areas, use an automatic floor scrubber equipped with non-abrasive pads. For high traffic areas, it is recommended to buff the floor with a high-speed burnisher.
