The good news is that old concrete, no matter its age, is usually a good candidate for floor refinishing and polishing. The only exception to this rule is a concrete floor that is very damaged and in need of extensive repairs or a poorly poured and floated floor with many extreme dips and valleys in the surface.


Removing the Grime


It’s typical for old concrete floors to need a lot of cleaning. Many years of dirt, grime, and oil have accumulated on the surface, and there is usually some minor surface damage as well. When preparing the surface of old concrete for floor polishing, a good cleaning is required for the next step. If the cement floor has been painted or sealed in the past, those coatings will have to be removed as well to expose the raw cement.


The Next Step: Grinding the Concrete


After all dirt, stains or old coatings such as paint have been removed and small cracks filled in, our highly trained floor polishing specialists use special equipment to grind the concrete and make it smooth and polished. In order to correctly polish a concrete floor to achieve superior results, we use a multi-step process to assure the highest quality floor for our customers.


Special Finishes


After the concrete floor is ground and polished, finishing the floor with floor dying or acid stain can create beautiful and unique effects. In an office or restaurant setting concrete floor polishing combined with a floor dying process can create a one of a kind floor that will be the focal point of your decor.


When it comes to special finishes for your newly polished floor, there is an amazing array of colors, stains and refinishing techniques to enhance the appearance of your concrete floor. Our floor polishing specialists can recommend different options for you to choose for your residence or commercial building.
