Selecting new floors for a commercial space is a big decision. Taking the time to educate yourself on the various types of floors that are available, as well as the benefits that each flooring option offers, allows you to make an educated decision as to which type of flooring is right for your commercial space. Read on to learn some of the benefits of concrete commercial flooring.
Concrete Floors Are Durable
One of the benefits associated with concrete commercial floors is that they are extremely durable. Carpet wears down as it is walked across, tile can crack, and wood floors can warp or rot. Concrete is a strong and durable material that can withstand heavy foot traffic and a lot of abuse, making it a great option for warehouse and commercial spaces.
Concrete Flooring is Energy Efficient
One of the lesser known benefits associated with concrete commercial flooring is that concrete is energy efficient. Concrete absorbs heat and cold from the air around it. As such, if you are running the air conditioner in the building, the concrete will cool down, helping your building to stay cooler. Likewise, if you are running the heater, the concrete will heat up, helping your building to stay warmer. This can help your space to feel warmer or cooler, as desired, which helps to decrease your energy usage.
Concrete Floors Are Easy to Clean
As a business owner, you likely do not have a lot of time to spend cleaning the floors in your building. Concrete is a great option for those who are busy because it doesn't take much to clean this flooring choice. Concrete can be swept to remove dirt and debris. If the concrete is stained, sealed or painted, it can be mopped as needed to remove residue and restore shine to the floor. There are no special cleaning products or time-consuming cleaning processes that need to be done to keep the floors clean.
There Are Many Color and Stain Options Available
The last benefit associated with concrete commercial floors is that there are many techniques available to alter the appearance of your concrete floor. Concrete can be painted, epoxy can be used on concrete, etching or acid washing can be done, or concrete can be stained. All of these options transform plain gray concrete into an attractive flooring option that complements your space.
