Our company acts as a concrete contractor and provides concrete floor polishing services. This service is suitable for ready-made concrete pavement or concrete floor and allows you to level it, as well as to give the coating a shine. You can polish residential floors, such as indoor or outdoor e.g. floors around a pool, in a garage or patio, or in commercial areas such as shops or driveway, and warehouses. Oftentimes, burnished concrete floors are found in commercial spaces because they are easy to maintain and you can make finishes like polished concrete with salt and pepper.
The floor polishing process begins with a larger diamond segment, sometimes referred to as rough polishing. The goal of this step is to get rid of bumps, stains, dirt, paint and cured glue. After this stage, they are polished with a finer abrasive with the addition of a special compound or sealant to give the polished floor a greater shine. In addition, the sealant penetrates the concrete, thereby sealing it. The result is a shiny burnished concrete floor that is comfortable and reliable to use.
We can polish the existing old floor, this will help breathe a second life into it and it will look new, shiny and glossy enough, and it will take on a finished look. And also when polishing the floor, we can add dye to create an interesting decorative solution, so you can make both white and black, red, gray or any other color polished concrete floors. It is better to pick up dyes for polishing with a fine pigment, so the pigment can penetrate into the concrete and remain on the surface for a long time. There are many different types of polished concrete floor finishes, but the dye option is popular.

How does the concrete polishing process take place?
The polishing process consists of several stages. At the first stage, we remove the top layer of the coating and get rid of various contaminants, for example: dirt and glue, using a coarse abrasive. Then, with the help of a special chemical composition and a fine-grained abrasive, we bring it to the desired degree of gloss. At the end, when the polishing is over, we apply a layer of protective coating.
What are the types of polishing?
Distinguish between dry and wet polishing. When wet polishing, some amount of water is used to reduce dirt and polish better. In our company we use slightly wet concrete polishing.
What is used for concrete impregnation and what is it for?
We use a densifier to impregnate the concrete during polishing. It is applied at the end of the process, so it helps to fill the concrete structure and make it very smooth. The floor becomes more resistant to external influences, and its service life is significantly increased.
Is it possible to make a colored floor as well as different patterns on the floor?
Yes, we can add dye when polishing and get different colors from the catalog. It can be a gray or red floor. But we don't make drawings or patterns on the floor.
Is it possible to choose the degree of gloss and what does it depend on?
Floor polishing takes place in several stages, in each of which the floor is sanded with an abrasive. When choosing an abrasive, you also choose the degree of gloss. Therefore, to achieve maximum gloss, you need to take the finest-grained abrasive - 3000 grit. You can also make a matte floor for this, an abrasive will be used - 50-100 grit. You can choose the degree of gloss you need, and we will select the desired abrasive.
How much do polished floors glide?
The polished concrete floor does not slide more than usual. Of course, if the floor is wet, it will be slippery. However, in ordinary life, you will not notice the difference. But if you are still confused by the possibility of slipping, choose the matte polish option, it is not as smooth.
What are the benefits of a polished concrete floor?
It requires a minimum of maintenance, but it looks amazing. The polished floor is strong enough to withstand even very heavy loads so that it can be used even in industrial locations. It is easy to clean and undemanding to use - this will help you save money in the future.
Where is a polished floor suitable and which is not?
A polished floor is suitable for almost any location. It is often made in various stores and shopping centers. You can do it in an industrial building or at home. This durable floor will look good anywhere.
