When it comes to durable and beautiful concrete floors, you may have questions. What is the difference between a polished floor and a sealed floor? Which type of floor finishing is the best choice for your business or home and fulfills your needs? Which application do floor specialists recommend?

Polished Concrete

Polished concrete is a popular choice for commercial and residential buildings because it’s a renewable resource and green flooring finishing. Floor polishing can be an inexpensive alternative for many business owners and homeowners because it utilizes a floor surface that already exists—in many cases, as a subfloor. Using floor staining or floor dye can create a visually stunning variegated look for your floors.
Floor polishing creates a surface that’s low maintenance as well. Polished concrete is easy to clean and doesn’t require stripping or waxing like other floors. Floor polishing specialists agree it’s an excellent choice for allergy sufferers because it doesn’t accumulate dust like other types of flooring, and it resists mold and dust mites.
Polished concrete floors can be left the original gray color or can be colored by floor dying or concrete floor staining. Many exciting looks can be achieved with floor staining and can be used to imitate natural stone, such as marble.

Sealed Concrete

If you desire a highly glossy finish for your concrete floor that effectively repels oil and other liquids, choose sealed concrete. Sealed concrete is highly effective in high-moisture commercial areas, such as restaurants or breweries.
The surface of a sealed concrete floor is ground using special equipment as in floor polishing, but the concrete floor resurfacing process goes one step further by applying a sealant to the surface, thus sealing the concrete.
The floor specialists at ACT Restoration recommends sealed concrete to its business and residential customers because it is a perfect choice for areas of high moisture. It’s highly polished surface also resists heavy foot traffic and retains its brilliant shine.
