There was a time when concrete was only ever seen on the outside of buildings, or used in heavy duty infrastructure like walkways and bridges. But these days we see concrete being brought into the home more and more - with stunning effect. You might try a polished concrete floor as a wonderful way to achieve a minimalist chic look in your home - which is also very easy to clean and maintain. With polished concrete you’re in charge - from the color and look, to the level of gloss in the finish, it can all be custom designed to suit your needs.
Advantages Of Polished Concrete Flooring
Polished concrete is unlimited in terms of the ways you can create your perfect finished look, it’s long lasting and easy to maintain and won’t be damaged by humidity or moisture. Unlike carpets, there is nowhere for dust mites or other allergens to hide - making it a great choice if you have kids or people with allergies to consider. The costs of concrete flooring compared to exotic stones, carpet or tiling are relatively cheap - and the long term cost when you consider how long a polished concrete floor will last is extremely low. What’s not to love?
Polished Concrete - The Process
Provo Concrete Stamping work with advanced modern equipment and techniques to get a perfect polished concrete surface. Firstly we will agree the look you’re trying to achieve, and use pigments or other additions in the mix to start to build the basis for your perfect floor. This might mean adding shells or stones for example, to give color and interest to the finished floor. The concrete is poured and cured, and we then use a series of increasingly fine tools to grind and polish the surface to the level of gloss you want.
How Do I Maintain A Polished Concrete Floor?
Provo Concrete Stamping contractors will always explain the best ways to clean and maintain your polished concrete floor when they are at your home or commercial property - but the good news is that it’s not hard at all. The exact way you’ll need to clean and maintain your floor depends on the traffic levels, but you can expect to need to dust mop it frequently and then wet mop using a soft pad and a neutral cleaning product. It’s best not to allow spills of any type to sit on the surface for too long, to ensure there is no staining.
