When it comes to running a business, having materials that last as long as possible is imperative to save on unnecessary expenses. Premature repairs or replacements can quickly cut into a business’s profits. Polished concrete is built to last much longer than conventional flooring materials and even standard concrete. When properly installed and maintained, polished concrete can last for more than 25 years!
When you’re running a restaurant or any commercial kitchen, cleaning and maintenance can take away valuable time with preparing for the next service or closing down for the night. Polished concrete requires little maintenance to keep it exceptionally clean and sanitary. Daily sweeping or dust mopping, spot mopping, and weekly wet mopping are all that’s necessary to keep this floor sanitized and beautiful.
Water and Stain Resistance
Commercial kitchens are subject to spills of many varieties. Whether it’s over splash from dishes or a dropped meal, messes happen. Many traditional flooring materials can be stained from spills or even damaged. Polished concrete is extremely dense, meaning that spills will not immediately soak into the floor and can be cleaned without the worry of damage or stains.
