As a business owner, we are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to save money on operations, I am sure as a business owner or manager, you too have made lived this daily. Technology has quickly advanced over the past few years at a rapid pace and there are some real opportunities for companies to save money. Maybe its new energy efficient LED lighting, or solar panels or perhaps its right under your feet. Yes, that's correct, your existing concrete floors. For years commercial locations would install expensive and hard to clean tile that required scrubbing, waxing and polishing and just quite frankly looks average and boring. Today, smart business owners are making the switch to polished concrete and for good reason. Not only is it absolutely beautiful, it also has a whole list of advantages over traditional flooring that can save you thousands in maintenance plus its cheaper than tile or other floor covering options.
So how does a polished concrete floor save you money, We let's take a closer look:
More resistant to high foot traffic. You maintain primarily just the traffic ways within your commercial space, which saves time and money because you do not have to move large display cases to wax and strip the floor
Less maintenance and longer service life: Polished floors are easy to clean, requiring only occasional damp mopping. They also eliminate the need for messy waxes or coatings as well as the associated labor, time, and expense to apply them. The glossy surface of polished concrete resists the marks of forklift truck tires and staining from oil and chemical spills.
Resistant to moisture transmission issues: Polished concrete allows the floor to breathe and eliminates issues that arise with other flooring materials that seal off the concrete, such as tile, etc.
High light reflectivity: Important for office building floors, hotels, restaurants, and other public facilities that want to project a bright, clean, professional image. Also saves energy by reducing artificial lighting requirements
Is a sustainable flooring alternative: Polished concrete does not require hazardous coatings, cleaners or adhesives
The most common places polished concrete is used include:
Large warehouses and warehouse outlets
Hotels and restaurants
