Polished concrete floors are one of the most stunning and elegant flooring options available today. With the wide range of stains and levels of polish available, older concrete floors can be recreated into beautiful, versatile floors that are also quite durable. Part of its appeal is that the minimalism of polished concrete floors works well with contemporary homes and older models alike. If you’ve got concrete floors in your home or business, count yourself lucky.


At ACT Restoration, our twin cities concrete floor resurfacing and restoration team offers a wide range of floor refinishing services. We’ve put together this guide to help you answer some of the most common polished concrete questions.


1.      What if a Concrete Floor Has Bubbles and Other Defects?

Repairing these types of problems is part of what we do. We use our floor prep method to wet grind and polish the existing concrete floor. This will allow us to remove many types of damage that have occurred over time. Not only can we repair bubbles during this process but also chips in the concrete, cracks, and other damage to your concrete floors.


2.      What is the Wet Grind Method?

The wet grind method is a process that uses diamond abrasives and water to prepare a concrete floor. It has a number of benefits. It is an environmentally friendly option that is much more accurate than other concrete floor preparation approaches. Because the water limits dust in the air, it’s also much healthier than a dry grind method.


3.      What Types of Floor Polish are Available?

We offer four levels of concrete floor polish for your floors. With level one floor polish, you’ll get a matte finish that has a low level of reflection. Level two is a low sheen flooring polish that’s slightly more reflective than matte. With level three, three polishing steps come together for a higher level of reflection. And at level four, you’ll get a stunning full finish that gleams with reflectivity.
