Why do commercial spaces choose polished concrete flooring?
Simply because Polished concrete floors are synonymous with modern luxury. Over the last decade, they’ve become one of the most prevalent flooring solutions for luxury construction. Since the floor is underfoot and takes up so much real estate in any space, it has a significant impact on the aesthetic of your space. If you want to change the look of a room, change the floors. Flooring can make your space look instantly cooler, warmer, larger, smaller, more intimate, cozier, and more luxe. Polished concrete floors can be high or medium gloss and reflective, the level of reflectivity depending on the polished grit you choose. Not only do they look sleek and luxurious, but they can also help introduce more light into your space. These floors can cut down on the amount of artificial light you need to use, this may result in a lower electric bill.
A polished concrete floor in a warehouse is about more than making the environment appealing and pleasant. This may encourage increased team productivity, may lead to more efficient inventory management, can help eliminate waste, help aid in preventing health and safety issues, help with lowering maintenance costs, and may represent company professionalism. Having a clean work environment can help improve productivity, morale, and possibly even employee health. These are some of the many reasons companies with distribution centers, manufacturing plants, and warehouses are turning to this method.

Polished concrete flooring is very eco-friendly. They may require less energy than other floor types to produce and are made (poured) locally. Concrete is positive for indoor air quality because it may help prohibit mold, mildew, and odors; contains no potentially harmful VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and can be finished with zero-VOC sealers, unlike carpeting which can be a reservoir for allergy-causing substances (allergens) that trigger asthma. On the contrary, polished concrete floors are hypoallergenic! Having a hypoallergenic floor means that it won’t trap allergens, dust mites, mold, mildew, bacteria, or moisture. Concrete floors that are properly polished and sealed are food-grade safe and meet all of the various health department standards for a sanitary surface in restaurants. This easier-to-clean surface is resistant, and therefore, most likely will not harbor and become a breeding ground for dangerous bacteria.
While polished concrete floors are not maintenance-free, they may be easier to care for than other types of flooring. Did you know all you mostly need to do to simply clean your polished concrete floor is a dust mop than a simple steam mop with water when the floor feels or appears dirty? Never use cleaners such as Pine-Sol, ammonia, vinegar, or bleach as they will dull, discolor, or etch polished concrete and stained concrete floors as well as the protective sealer.
