First you will start to explore the possibilities which we can offer, we would like to familiarize you with the process of polishing floor itself as we think it is an important part for you before you make any further decisions on how you want your floors to look like.
So let’s get started:
How does the process itself look like?
grinding some of the parts of concrete to reach its foundations
the use of the special impregnating sealer – it hardens the concrete
smoothing and polishing the surface until the closure of micro-pores and thus achieving the high gloss
Every step of the process increases the shine and reflection of the surface. Because the polishing is a multistep process, coming one after another, clients that are not sure of the intensity of the gloss can decide on the shine after every step of the process. It is also possible to choose a color or just leave it in its natural shade so that it will meet client’s aesthetics and maintenance expectations.

Is that kind of flooring safe?
The polished concrete meets the policy of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certificate. Being a natural product – it doesn’t have any scent. It also doesn’t involve any chemicals or solvents that could get into air, or products that could cause allergies. The floor doesn’t raise dust so it leaves the air clean. Thanks to its neutral pH, it doesn’t develop any bacteria, mould or fungi. Besides, the floor doesn’t require an intensive cleaning to maintain cleanliness and good looks, or applying waxes or polymers, and thus not needing to use stripers to remove them. All current expenses related to the application, removal and maintenance of waxes and polymers will be added to your savings. All of those features make the polished concrete flooring very economical.
