How does Concrete Polishing Work?
The first important step in the process is proper preparation of the current flooring. We begin by removing any existing coatings on the floor, cleaning the floor and filling any existing cracks and divots.
The concrete is then treated with a chemical hardener to densify that concrete by filling holes where air pockets exist. Increasing the density of the concrete floor helps to harden and seal the flooring material which allows the surface to be sanded.
Next, the floor surface is progressively sanded down using heavy-duty polishing machines with diamond-segmented abrasives or disks (think sandpaper). By using varying grits the flooring is gradually ground down and then polished to the desired shine and smoothness.

- Increased ambient light reflection

- Decreased cleaning costs
- Elimination of dusting
- No waxing & stripping
- Cost effective & economical
