If you are installing a concrete floor, you can polish it to strengthen the structure of the concrete. Polishing concrete yourself is certainly possible, but it is not an easy job. To avoid costly mistakes, you need a reliable concrete polishing contractor to do the job.
As a concrete contractor, our company provides concrete floor polishing services. Suitable for concrete pavements and floors, this service allows you to level and shine them to perfection.
Polished concrete can be used on residential floors, including pools, garages, and patios, or in commercial areas, including shops, driveways, and warehouses. Floor polishing begins with a large diamond segment, sometimes rough polishing. This eliminates bumps, stains, dirt, paint, and cured glue.
Polishing a concrete floor, also known as butterflies, is necessary to compact the concrete after pouring. This is done with a butterfly machine, a device equipped with several blades that can change position. The edges make a circular movement over the floor, making it smoother and denser in structure. Fine quartz granules can also be sprinkled into the concrete during polishing. These provide a solid and wear-resistant shiny layer on the concrete floor.
The old floor can be polished, giving it a new lease on life. Diamond discs are used for polishing with a grinder. It polishes the floor, removing all irregularities and giving it a beautiful shine. In addition, after polishing and further treatment with a suitable wax, the floor is easier to clean and more resistant to moisture and dirt penetration.

What is the process of concrete polishing?
There are several stages involved in polishing. First, using a coarse abrasive, we remove the top layer of the coating and get rid of various contaminants, such as dirt and glue. Our next step is to bring it to the desired degree of gloss using unique chemical composition and fine-grained abrasives. Finally, a protective coating is applied at the end of the polishing process.
How are polishing techniques different?
It is essential to distinguish between dry polishing and wet polishing. Wet polishing reduces dirt and polishes better by using some amount of water. Our company uses a slightly wet method of polishing concrete.
Why is concrete impregnation used?
The concrete is impregnated with a densifier during polishing. The concrete structure is filled with the additive at the end of the process, which makes it very smooth. As a result, its service life is significantly increased, and it becomes more resistant to external influences.
Can the floor be colored and patterned?
The polish can be dyed when finished, and different colors can be selected from the catalog. Grey or red floors are both possible. However, we do not draw or make patterns on the floor.
How is the gloss determined, and can it be selected?
The floor is sanded with an abrasive in several stages during floor polishing. Abrasives can also be selected according to their gloss. Abrasives with the finest grain - 3000 grit - will produce the maximum gloss. On the other hand, an abrasive of 50-100 grit can be used to make a matte floor. We will select the appropriate abrasive based on the degree of gloss you require.
How easy is it to glide on polished floors?
There is no increase in slipping on the polished concrete floor. Wet floors are slippery, of course. The difference will not be noticeable in everyday life. The matte polish option isn't as smooth, so if you're still worried about slipping, choose that option.
Polished concrete floors offer many benefits, but what are some of them?
Maintenance is minimal, but the floor looks terrific. Even heavy loads can be borne by the polished floor, making it suitable for industrial use. In addition, using this product will save money in the long run since the floor becomes easy to clean and generally undemanding.
When should a polished floor be used, and when should it not be used?
Almost any location can benefit from a polished concrete floor. There are various stores and shopping centers where it can be found. The process can be carried out either in an industrial building or at home. Any room and space will look good with this durable floor.
