Choosing Your Flooring Color
When compared to unpolished concrete, polished concrete can be customized exactly to the business owner’s liking. Through the use of dyes or acid staining, there are many unique aesthetic looks that can be achieved with minimal effort. Many facilities love the endless amount of custom stains that polished concrete offers, as opposed to unpolished concrete that simply appears gray and dull.
When concrete flooring is polished and stained, it is effectively sealed so that no dust particulates can travel throughout the air. Not only is this an easy way to ensure cleanliness in your facility, it can also help to keep your employees happy and healthy from not having to continuously breathe in loose concrete particles. Failing to polish your concrete can cause your floor to deteriorate at an expedited pace, as loose cement particles are abrasive and will wear down your flooring over time.
Polished epoxy flooring is smooth by nature, but is not slippery when walked on. To add an additional level of protection for both you and your employees, PPI Flooring can even apply a slip-resistant overlay that can provide an additional level of protection for facilities like restaurant kitchens, where liquid, grime, and food can cause slipping hazards for both you and your employees.
Above all else, polished concrete is liked by many due to the fact that it can be used in commercial spaces just as much as it can be used in residential spaces. When compared to unpolished concrete, polished concrete offers a smoother, more beautiful sheen that looks elegant in almost any setting imaginable.
