Residential Polished Concrete Floors

Residential polished concrete floors are a popular option for both new builds and renovations alike. Polished concrete is a great option for homes as it is low maintenance, allergy friendly, environmentally friendly, and can decrease your electricity spend due to its reflective nature.

Because it is easy to clean, polished concrete is perfect for kitchen floors. You can easily sweep dust and dirt with a dust mop, or for more stubborn stains you can use warm water. Polished concrete is also water resistant, so it will not be affected by spills and splashes. Because of the sealed surface, it does not provide a surface on which mould can grow, resulting in a cleaner and healthier kitchen.

Commercial Polished Concrete Floors

Commercial polished concrete floors are becoming a popular option for both office spaces and retailers alike. Its reflective surface allows for reduced electricity costs due to the overhead lights bouncing off the floor. It is resistant to spills and most chips, and is easy to clean and maintain.

Polished Concrete FAQs

What is the difference between Hiperfloor mechanically polished concrete and a grind and seal finish?

The Hiperfloor mechanically polished concrete floor is the authentic way of producing polished concrete floors. It is certainly a very high-end luxurious floor that undergoes a series of polishes to make the floor super smooth and shiny creating the glass like, high gloss effect. As a mechanically polished concrete floor does not have a coating over the top, it will last much longer than a sealed finish as there is nothing to ware away.

The grind and seal finish is a cheaper alternative ad involves grinding the concrete back before a clear coating is applied over the top which protects the concrete.  Sealers will generally need to be re-applied every 2 – 7 years depending on the application.

How do you clean a polished concrete floor?

The beauty of polished concrete is that is very simple and easy to maintain. Maintenance is as simple as using a micro-fibre dust mop to clean dust every couple of days, and for a bigger clean, just use water. If desired, a PH neutral cleaner may be added to the water.

Can polished concrete be used outdoors?

Of course you can! For outdoor use however, we usually recommend using the grind and seal method, as we are able to apply a slip resistant finish to the floor as a safety precaution in wet areas around pools and outdoor areas.

Is polished concrete a good option for allergies and asthma sufferers?

Polished concrete is a great solution for those who are prone to allergies and asthma. Unlike carpet, timber and a variety of other floor finishes, it does not support the growth of mould, or have fibers for dust mites to live.

At McGinn Concrete, we have been providing a range of polished concrete options to people in the Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast areas for more than 30 years. If you are looking for an experienced team to bring your idea to life, contact our team today.
