Concrete polishing is an increasingly popular method of altering the appearance of dull grey floors. Concrete floors have become popular for a wide variety of applications, including shops, showrooms and in the home. Its ease of maintenance and durability are major drawcards for customers looking for a stylish, versatile yet low cost flooring option that is equally at home indoors or outdoors - including for patios, driveways or pathways.
There are a number of different techniques that are utilised to achieve a polished concrete floor surface. This includes burnishing or honing which are the most effective and popular techniques. A succession of abrasives are utilised to mechanically grind the concrete until the desired polished effect is achieved. The more traditional technique for polishing a concrete floor is by steel trowelling - either by hand or with the aid of a powered trowelling machine. This technique smooths the concrete just before it sets, and is able to achieve a highly accomplished finish. Aggregates such as quartz or granites are also often added to concrete before polishing, which produces a textured decorative effect that is especially popular. Sand blasting of concrete may also used to achieve a more textured surface.
Ensure you wear the appropriate safety equipment when working on your stone floor. This includes gloves, eye protection and a face mask.
