Polishing Concrete – Best Way to repair Floors
Floors in every school, home, commercial building and driveway over time became susceptible to water damage as one of the biggest reasons why your concrete may manifest cracks which are quite noticeable. Even the most protected material will succumb under moisture because of the destructive weather conditions or simply by everyday activities such as frequent traffic or regular mopping. Repairing and polishing concrete is the most effective and affordable way to protect and renew your floor to its original state. Sometimes even if we are very mindful and careful with an accident it may occur. We can’t prevent each possibility of a broken water pipe or influence the weather conditions. All we need is to put more effort in regular maintenance to get rid of every potential factor that might damage the surface.
Sometimes it seems like you can’t overlay the cracks for a variety of reasons, because the concrete became so thin, so the grinding is the only way to restore the look of the driveway.
Polishing concrete is a technique when the surface has been treated with chemicals and special grinding tools to repair the uneven lines before they get even worse. As a matter of fact grinding tools are very strong and abrasive due to the fact that they can remove even the most stubborn stains on every concrete design. Polished concrete brings aesthetic and protective characteristics on the surface as the floor becomes more durable and non –slippery. Over time you may notice less dust and mould while the degree of shine and smoothness is larger on the repaired material. Simply put, it is confirmed that a hardened and polished floor will last longer compared to the one that has not been repaired completely. Depending on the condition of the composed material after the polishing procedure, it may last decades with proper and regular maintenance.
The process of polishing may be applied on new floors with less costs and work to achieve the desired smoothness. You can polish and protect old floors, but you will need to add more effort to get a bit more shine in order to eliminate the stains, dark spots and the damage over the years. If done correctly, the entire process is very time consuming because you need to work on increasing the lifespan of the surface implementing at least 10 steps applying diamond tools. The advantages of a diamond polishing are obvious as we apply 16 -30 grit size diamonds followed water systems to eliminate the dust and the entire mess around the working area which makes our method environmentally friendly.
Concrete grinders are usually used with a combination of metal-bonded abrasives to achieve the desired level of smoothness. When the desired grind level is achieved, the surface without any visible scratching cracks or imperfections, the surface is then cleaned and prepared for impregnating.
If you plan to polish your floor with a variety of grits you need to evaluate the condition of the ground to determine the hardness of the tools.
