Polished concrete has become the floor of choice for a large number of market segments . . .
The clean, modern look of reflective concrete floors offer a number of benefits in a wide range of settings . . .
- Maintenance Savings – Considerable savings can be achieved with the high durability and low maintenance required to maintain concrete floors. All that is needed to clean a well-polished floor is a periodic sweep or damp mop. Polished concrete holds up extremely well to forklift and foot traffic in industrial and retail settings. Less durable floor coverings like carpet wear sooner and require replacement more often than polished concrete. Unlike vinyl tile, polished concrete does not require frequent stripping and waxing.
- Air Quality – Polished concrete does not provide a safe-haven to allergens, mold, and other harmful substances as do carpet and vinyl tile, resulting in better air-quality.
- Reduced Energy Consumption – The high reflectivity of polished concrete increases the ambient lighting of an area and less lighting is required.
