The concrete of today has properties that are sophisticated than most people realize. We applied new guard to the floor and burnished it, making it hard and shiny, which gave us an attractive, slip resistant surface that would repel oil stains and prevent bacteria and germs from penetrating into the pores of the concrete and forming colonies of ‘smelly bleah' that could lead to indoor air pollution from the off-gassing of the bacteria.

Unlike carpeting and many other types of flooring, no chemicals, such as brominated flame retardants, need to be added for fire resistance, and the floor surface does not contribute in any way to fire spread. The polished and properly maintained surface does not trap and hold pollutants.

Keeping abreast of all the dynamic growth and trends in the flooring industry is a daunting task. The polishing process is the last process and the level depends on how much sheen is desired. High quality polished concrete has a high gloss and is very flat for crisp, low distortion reflections.

We invest in research and development to provide the best of the equipment and high-end diamonds that grind and polish the floor to its desired level of shine in less time than other systems. When the polished surface shows signs of light wear due to constant abrasion i.e. the gloss seems to be satin at best, a polishing contractor can return and perform 1 High Grit (800, 15000 or 3000) diamond pass to restore the finish.

At a level 3 polish, your concrete floors will really begin to shine and clearly reflect side and overhead lighting. The third truth deals with the cost of laying a concrete floor. Recently I was asked which changes or advancements have had the biggest impact on polished concrete floors, primarily in the industrial and commercial market sectors.
