If you’re considering polishing and restoring your concrete floors, you’ve made a bold and beautiful choice. Polished concrete floors are growing in popularity now more than ever due to their timeless and classic appeal and durable performance. In fact, with the right care and maintenance, polished concrete floors will look stunning years down the road. Even if we’re adding an epoxy, we must first polish the concrete floor.
At ACT Restoration in Brooklyn Park, we use a wet grind method to prepare your floors. We’ve put together this guide to explain our floor prep process and talk about its advantages.
What Our Floor Prep Involves
When we prep your floors, we use a grinding and polishing method on your existing concrete floor. Over time, your floor may have experienced damage that occurred naturally over the years. With our process, we can remove the damage that’s been done due to pressure and use over time.
Our process removes the following kinds of damage:
The Wet Grind Method
Our unique process for polishing concrete begins with a wet grind method. Our wet grind method relies on diamond abrasives. Through this process, we add water, which serves as a lubricant and creates a dust-free environment. The wet grind method creates a more accurate, level, and smooth surface which can be used to shape concrete steps and create other important forms. It also does a better job of repairing damaged floors than the dry method.
Wet Grind Advantages
The wet grind process offers a wide range of advantages over the dry method. It’s healthier because it limits the amount of dust that’s released into the air, making it the best choice for restaurants and establishments that serve food. It’s also far more environmentally friendly because it uses existing concrete rather than tearing up and replacing the floor. Finally, it’s fast, which means very little downtime for your establishment.
