The Commercial Concrete Polishing
The process for commercial concrete polishing is the same as residential, only on a larger scale in most cases. We start the process by cleaning the floor and then inspecting it for damage. If any damage is found, such as cracks or chipping, we’ll need to repair it. Lighter damage, such as pits or small dents, will be ground out during the polishing phase. We’ll fix the cracks with an injectable epoxy filler that will prevent the crack from spreading. Chipped areas will be repaired using a concrete patch. Once these damages have been fixed, we can move on to the next step of the process.
The next step of the polishing is the rough grind. We use a floor grinder equipped with a diamond grinding wheel with varying grits.
With all the repair work complete, we can start the rough grind. This is usually completed in three to four passes. With each pass we make, we’ll move up to a higher grit. We’ll start the grinding with a 30- to 40-grit diamond wheel to give the concrete a rough profile. We’ll approximately double the grit with each round of grinding. Once the three- to four-step coarse grind is completed, we’ll apply an impregnating sealer that not only protects the concrete from the inside out but also densifies the concrete. This will eliminate the need for a topical sealer and make maintenance even more comfortable! After the sealer has been applied and it soaks into the concrete, we’ll move on to the polishing. The actual polishing is similar to the rough grind, with us making about four to five passes with a finer grit each time. We’ll start with a 100- or 200-grit polishing wheel and move up to the finish of your choosing, depending on what level of sheen you want for your floor. Typically, we’ll finish a floor with a 1,500-grit polishing wheel, but you can go up to 3,000-grit if you want an even higher gloss floor. Once the polishing is completed, your floor is ready to use!
Where to Find
Commercial Polished Concrete
When you think polished commercial concrete, your mind likely goes straight to retail stores and similar. However, we’re here to tell you there are so many more uses for commercial polished concrete!
We offer concrete polishing to virtually any business that you may have. Below, we’ll cover some of the most popular commercial locations that incorporate polished concrete into their companies.
Retail Stores- This is one of the most popular locations for polished concrete. Retail stores benefit from this durable flooring as they are subject to high amounts of foot traffic.
Restaurants- Polished concrete works well in this environment as they can be customized to fit any design while giving a sophisticated look with low-cost material.
Offices- In an office, it’s crucial to have a floor that’s attractive and functional. Polished concrete can easily do both while making maintenance easier as well!
Schools- Durability and cost-efficiency make polished concrete a smart choice for school systems. These floors will last a lifetime, despite the everyday foot traffic and spills in the average school.
Hospitals- Sanitation is one of the most important aspects of any medical complex. The ease of maintenance with polished concrete allows hospitals to focus on the quick and easy sanitization of the floors without sacrificing an attractive surface that can ease patients.
Breweries- A floor that doesn’t stain easily, is naturally slip-resistant, and long-lasting is an essential asset for any brewery to have. That’s why so many breweries are making the switch to polished concrete today!
The Benefits of Commercial Polished Concrete
There are many benefits to a commercial business choosing to use polished concrete. From its sustainability to its affordability, polished concrete simply delivers on every aspect.
Below, we’ll cover the most notable benefits of polished concrete and how businesses benefit from it.
Polished concrete is one of the most durable flooring systems that you can have! The polishing process actually densifies the floor and makes it stronger than average concrete. This durability is especially important in commercial environments that experience more wear and tear than the typical residence.
With all that’s going on in the world today, sustainability is more important than ever for businesses! As we all strive to cut down on waste, polished concrete floors are another way to do just that. Concrete polishing makes the most out of the floor you already have. Many other flooring systems produce a significant amount of waste during installation, while polished concrete eliminates waste.
Yet another way to help a business stay “green” is energy efficiency. Polished concrete is highly reflective and can help reduce the need for interior lighting in your business. As more light is reflected by the floor, you can use fewer lights with the same amount of visibility! Therefore, you’ll be making your business more energy-efficient and cut down on power bills!
Polishing concrete increases its lifespan dramatically. As the polishing process makes the concrete both harder and denser, increasing its durability, the longevity is directly affected as well. When properly maintained and cared for, a polished concrete floor should last more than 20 years in any business setting!
Every business needs a floor that can resist various spills and stains. A stained, unsightly floor can deter business from customers and potential new clients. As the polishing process densifies the concrete, it becomes less porous and will not absorb spills from water, chemicals, and other substances as easily as traditional flooring.
