Benefits of Polished Concrete!
Sci Floors is your polished concrete floor provider for Bismarck, ND. Polished concrete
is quickly becoming an environmentally friendly, low maintenance alternative for the flooring needs of industrial, commercial, residential and government facilities. Recent advances in polishing equipment and techniques make it possible for contractors to strengthen and seal the
floor from within the interior of the concrete. Whether the floor is new or old, floor polishing that achieves a high-gloss finish that never needs waxes or coatings is a great solution.
By densifying and sealing the surface, polished concrete transforms a porous concrete floor into a tightened floor
that is dense enough to repel water, oil, and other contaminants, preventing them from penetrating the surface.
Improved reflectivity and ambient lighting:
The reflective properties of a polished concrete floor increase the lighting in facilities. Increased ambient lighting will reduce the energy bill
as well as look beautiful.
Polished concrete will reduce energy and maintenance costs
significantly through reflectivity and ambient lighting, reduction in upkeep (such as waxing), and reduced tire wear.
Most floor systems, including tile and linoleum, require aggressive scrubbing to maintain a clean environment and nice appearance. Polished concrete surfaces are tightly compacted, reducing stains, and do not require any waxing or stripping
to maintain the sheen.
Increased slip resistance:
Polished concrete, though quite shiny, does not create a slippery floor
. In fact, the benefits of mechanically grinding and flattening the floor will increase the coefficient of friction when compared to ordinary concrete. Polished concrete often exceeds OSHA standards for floors. (ASTM C 1028)
in Bismarck, ND, for polished concrete floors and floor systems.
