Regular concrete is an attractive, versatile material that companies utilize in various ways to enhance your property. However, polished concrete is becoming an increasingly popular option.
Polished concrete floors are a popular flooring option for residential and commercial properties. They are durable, easy to maintain, and come in various colors and finishes. Additionally, polished concrete adds an element of flair and richness to any floor.
So, what do you get with a polished concrete floor? Here at OCD Flooring, we provide a multitude of options for polished concrete floors. Now, this page will dive into what goes into a polished concrete floor.
Polished Concrete Floors
The process of polished concrete begins with preparing the surface. First, experts remove existing flooring material, such as vinyl or carpet. Next, experts clean the floor and grind it to smooth the surface. After, experts vacuum and inspect the floor to ensure it is ready for reconstruction.
Following cleaning, experts repair and fill any cracks and blemishes. Experts then apply a basecoat to the concrete once the floor is smooth and level. Applying a bonding agent to the concrete’s surface helps create a smooth base for the polishing process.
Additionally, OCD Flooring offers the option of chip casting to add a unique look to your concrete. In this process, experts generously cast decorative chips to the floor after a basecoat. Then, they chip away and smooth out the surface to create an incredible pattern.
Next, experts use a grinding machine to smooth out the floor’s surface slowly. This process can take several passes, with each pass using a higher grade of grinding stone. Once experts grind the floor to a smooth finish, a sealer is applied to protect the surface from stains and dirt. Finally, experts add a layer of wax for shine and protection. The entire process can take several days to complete, but the results are well worth it. Polished concrete floors are easy to maintain and will last for many years with proper care.
What Are the Benefits of Polished Concrete?
Experts treat a polished concrete floor with a chemical densifier and grind it down with progressively finer grinding tools. The grinding process creates a smooth, seamless surface that can be stained or tinted to create various looks.
Polished concrete floors are durable and easy to maintain, making them popular for commercial and residential applications. Furthermore, polished concrete floors help to improve indoor air quality by trapping dust and allergens, and they can also reduce noise levels.
Additionally, polished concrete floors are also slip-resistant and fire-resistant. This resistance makes them ideal for areas with high traffic or poses a safety risk.
Also, experts customize polished concrete floors to suit any décor and look like more traditional flooring materials such as wood. As a result, polished concrete floors offer a versatile and practical solution for various applications.
There is a wide variety of options to choose from for your polished concrete floors. With this in mind, OCD Flooring experts will help you to find the best choice for your property.
