Low Manintenance and Easy to Clean Once sealed, polished concrete is very easy to clean and maintain. It does not collect dust and allergens like carpet does and a quick sweep or mop once a week is all it takes to keep the surface clean and clear. Warm soapy water can be used to spot clean spills or to mop the entire surface. Non Slip Surface Even highly posished or shiny glass-look gloss concrete flooring can be non-slip. polished concrete is less slipery than linoleum or marble tiles. Just keep the surface clear of sand and they are very good non-slip flooring. Polished Concrete is Very Durable A well looked after floor can have a life expectancy of 100 years. Compare that to 10-20 years for tile or hardwood. Polished concrete is hardened and resistant to dents and chips, unlike tiles and wooden floors. Enviro-Friendly Since the process of polishing concrete uses the existing building structure, it minimises the need for the manufacture of new materials for floor coverings. This means less energy is used in the process and that is good for the environment. Modern Aesthetics If you are looking for a modern, minimalistic or industrial vibe then polished concrete will fit nicely. Not so loud and intrusive as some other flooring options but intricate enough to be a feature of its own, polished concrete flooring can work well the latest architectural aesthetic.
