Polished Concrete floors are becoming a more and more popular trend in residential homes. Why? We’re glad you asked. 

Polished concrete is durable, stain-proof, waterproof and contemporary chic. It withstands wear, and it holds up against fire, water, bacteria and odors. It’s easy to clean and will not scratch as easily. It is highly customizable, and its great compatibility with radiant heat are a great combination that can help you save money.

One important thing to keep in mind is that these floors are flat and hard, so fragile objects can break if they fall, and that standing on them for a long period of time can be strenuous. With time you may get small hairline cracks in the structure of your floors which is normal and can be easily repaired.

These floors are a green option since it makes use of materials you already have in your house: like your concrete slab garage or basement. Your concrete may be stained or damaged, but even so, you can fix the damage and treat it to remove stains and residues or even apply a new overlay to give the floors a new face. You can stain these floors in a huge variety of colors and textures.

For easy maintenance, vinegar or light cleaners will do the job, and dusting and vacuuming can be done as often as needed. These floors are the golden standard when it comes to pets – as they are odor proof and accidents can be easily cleaned.

These floors are most often used in below ground level contruction but can look great at ground level as well. Most importantly, remember that there are many diy ideas online but some jobs are best done by professionals.
