Polished Concrete vs Conventional Floor Coverings – The unique flooring system!

Polished concrete finishes have been used primarily in industrial buildings, manufacturing plants and warehouses and are increasingly becoming more popular in residential, retail and commercial buildings. When comparing polished concrete to a more conventional product, such as ceramic tiles it is obvious why polished concrete has become the material of choice. By mechanically grinding, treating and polishing the concrete provides a long lasting and unique seamless, hygienic floor without the use of coatings or sealers.

Traditionally, concrete floors have been covered over by a variety of floor coverings, surface coatings (epoxies and poly-urethane) and topical sealers otherwise known as overlayments . Often, when considering the life span of the overlayment, this process represents expensive installation, ongoing maintenance and eventual replacement costs, however, in all circumstances the underlying structural concrete remains. My Floors signature finish reduces the need for overlayments by converting the actual existing concrete into an economical, durable and low maintenance finished surface; able to withstand the toughest of traffic whilst producing spectacular visual appeal.

The best advantage with polished concrete is that it is extremely low maintenance and requires the occasional damp mopping due to its seamless abilities. However everyday maintenance and cleaning of tiles or equivalent floor coverings represents a difficult process due to oils, dirt and dust that settles into the grout lines leaving behind harmful bacteria.
