Sometimes, the formula for decorative concrete products works only for specific applications. One of the many exciting aspects of polished concrete floors is that they do incredibly well in almost every commercial environment.
For commercial use, polished concrete floors offer several benefits. Some examples of those include:
- Versatility – For restaurants, retail shops, grocery stores, car dealerships, medical or dental offices, arcade centers, and so on, you can use polished concrete floors for a variety of applications.
- Resistant to Foot Traffic – Unlike residential properties, commercial businesses typically have a significant amount of foot traffic. Fortunately, with outstanding resistance to this, you will enjoy years of flawless service from these floors.
- Maintenance and Cleaning – Especially if you do not have a professional cleaning crew, you will love the ease of cleaning and maintaining these floors. Because of the polished surface, you never have to apply coatings or waxes. To keep the floors in your business in pristine condition, sweeping as needed and occasional damp mopping is all you need to do.
- Vehicle Traffic – When using polished concrete floors in a warehouse, plant, or manufacturing facility, not only does the surface resist heavy foot traffic, but it can also resist tire marks caused by forklifts, product pickers, and other machinery.
- Additional Resistant Qualities – Depending on your business, you might deal with many water, chemical, or oil spills. Again, polished concrete floors have a high resistance level to these substances and more. In fact, as a breathable flooring system, you never have to worry about moisture transmission issues.
- Reflectivity – For some commercial environments, reflectivity is essential. For example, if you have a retail shop or car dealership, the reflection off the floor enhances displays. As a result, consumers gravitate to specific areas or items, which in turn, helps boost sales and generate revenue. At the same time, the high reflectivity level means you can reduce the amount of lighting used, which equates to less energy consumption.
