There’s a reason concrete floors have been reaching new levels of popularity in residential homes in recent years. Polished concrete floors are absolutely stunning in any environment and can enhance the look of just about any home. Despite the versatility and style of concrete floors, some homeowners hesitate to consider restoring their home’s concrete. Although concrete is beautiful, they may have questions about how well polished concrete can work for daily living in their homes.


Our ACT Restoration concrete floor restoration pros in Brooklyn Park love helping Twin Cities homeowners discover the timeless beauty of restoring their existing concrete floors. In this blog post, we’ll share some of the most common questions we encounter about refinishing concrete in a residential home.


Embracing Your Concrete Floors

When you’re deciding on a flooring option for your home, you have plenty of choices to make. But one of the most elegant is often overlooked completely by homeowners when they cover their concrete floors with carpet or tile. However, concrete flooring is one of the most versatile solutions for modern homes and can be stained in a wide range of styles and looks. It’s also incredibly durable, making it an ideal floor solution for lasting beauty.


Here are three of homeowners’ most pressing concrete floor questions:


1.   Do Concrete Floors Work Well For Pets?

If you’re a dog or cat lover, you need a concrete floor that will work as well for them as it does for the humans in your home. Concrete floors are a great solution for pets for a number of reasons. First, they won’t get stained like carpet. They’re also very easy to clean, which means sweeping up pet hair is a breeze. And you won’t have to worry about fleas, mites, and dander getting trapped in the fibers of your carpet.


2.   What Decorative Styles are Available?

If your idea of a polished concrete floor is industrial and gray, we’ve got good news for you! We can stain your concrete floors in a wide range of styles and colors. Choose from concrete floor looks like fresco stains, vivid dyes, and Tique Wash.


3.   What is the Maintenance Like on Concrete Floors?

One of the biggest advantages to restoring your home’s original concrete floors is the relative ease of maintenance. The amount of traffic your home gets will play a factor, but generally, residential homes receive far less traffic than industrial or commercial settings where polished concrete is used and lasts for many years.


Your concrete will be highly resistant to abrasion and stains. Regularly sweeping and mopping your floors is all you’ll need to keep them clean and attractive. You can also reduce the daily wear on your floors by placing rugs or mats inside busy walkways.
