The process of polishing the floor aims to create more denser and durable surface. The floor becomes less vulnerable to damage than other floors and does not need replacing.
It can withstand heavy foot traffic, forklifts, light vehicle traffic or heavy machinery without the need for waxing or replacing.
By densifying and sealing the surface, polished concrete transforms a porous concrete floor into a tightened floor that is dense enough to repel water, oil, and other contaminants, preventing them from penetrating the surface. This makes polished concrete extremely easy to clean and maintain, requiring only a mop and some mild floor detergent.
Unpolished concrete is porous. When the concrete starts showing signs of wear and tear, fine concrete dust will appear on the floor and the corners of the room. This is concrete dusting, which can harm people's health and too delicate machinery and equipment. Polished concrete prevents this by protecting the concrete from wear and tear.
