Concrete Polishing

Easy to maintain and durable floors
with concrete polishing

What is concrete polishing?

Are you looking for a cost-efficient way to upgrade the concrete floors in your retail space, patient lobby or industrial facility? Consider having them polished to a high-gloss shine. The process of concrete polishing not only adds beauty to your space, but it will actually make your floors stronger and more durable.

It’s similar to polishing granite or marble—the surface itself is finely ground down with specialized equipment (using something similar to sandpaper but often involving diamond grit).

Benefits of concrete polishing

Because of the physical changes concrete undergoes during the polishing process, it offers significant advantages over untreated concrete floors:

Aesthetic value

Looking to make a dramatic statement? Concrete can be polished so finely that it reflects almost like glass. And it doesn’t have to stay gray, either: dyes can be added during the polishing process to match the rest of your decor or make a bold statement.
Polished concrete can make a good impression on customers in a hospital lobby, automotive dealership, grocery store or other commercial space. Its clean, attractive surface can also improve worker morale in an industrial plant or warehouse.


Because polishing increases the density of the concrete’s molecules, the hardness of your floor’s surface can be nearly doubled: polished concrete often reaches a hardness level of 7 on Mohs scale. This makes it more difficult to scratch or damage, even if you’re using heavy equipment regularly.


Concrete polishing is a cost-effective flooring solution that’s also inexpensive to maintain. You use your existing concrete slab, so there’s no need to install new materials. Maintenance is relatively easy: the smooth surface makes it easier to sweep and mop, and it doesn’t give off dust like regular concrete (see “Cleanliness” below). Over the years the shine can dull, depending on the amount of traffic, but it’s easy to restore with an inexpensive touch-up polishing.


Despite its smooth appearance, polished concrete often provides better traction than unpolished floors. If water is spilled on the surface, it can actually provide better grip for the shoe (though we still recommend cleaning up spills right away as a general safety practice).


You may have noticed in warehouse environments, including some home improvement stores, that there’s often a fine layer of dust on everything. That’s the nature of untreated concrete—it sheds dust over time as it ages. However, the physical changes that polished concrete undergoes eliminates the release of dust. This is not just an aesthetic advantage, but it can prevent contamination of products and improve your facility’s air quality.
