At Aetna Integrated Services, we provide concrete polishing services for industrial facilities. You may wonder why you should bother polishing your concrete floor. After all, concrete is very tough by itself, what could polishing it do for you? There are actually many reasons why polishing concrete is a better idea than leaving it unpolished. Here are just a few:

Appearance

First of all, polished concrete looks better than unpolished concrete. Whereas conventional concrete calls to mind basements and other dark and unappealing places, polished concrete is reflective and attractive. Polished concrete brightens up any space, and looks great doing it.

Temperature

If you have ever walked on a concrete floor barefoot, you know this to be true: it is very cold. This is a problem particularly in winter. When you polish concrete, it helps the concrete maintain a more neutral temperature like other flooring options. Polished concrete absorbs the heat from the heater and the cold from the air conditioner to help you maintain a desirable temperature all year long.

Cleanliness

It is difficult to clean unpolished concrete. The rugged surface collects dirt and debris in its crevices, requiring vacuuming, which may not be very effective. Polished concrete, on the other hand, does not require much cleaning at all; essentially, all you need is soap and water. Because it is a smooth surface, it is more difficult for dirt to accumulate, so you do not even need to mop that often.

Moisture

Polished floors also repel moisture. Therefore, you do not have to worry about liquid seeping into your industrial flooring and staining it, as you would with a unpolished concrete floor. Polished concrete also resists scuffs and other damages.

Customization

When you have conventional concrete floors, there is not a lot you can do to customize them. They will be that gray, boring color forever. With concrete polishing, you are able to customize your concrete endlessly. You could put your company logo on the floor, or you could choose from a wide variety of colors. There are even options that allow you to imitate other materials, such as marble or granite.

Safety

When you contract Aetna Integrated Services for our concrete polishing, you can add a non-slip additive to ensure the safety of your employees and customers. Polished concrete is a safer alternative than unpolished concrete, and will give you additional peace of mind.

Energy efficiency

Additionally, polished concrete is a reflective surface. This means that it gives the appearance of more light. This decreases your energy costs and is therefore more environmentally friendly.l. Additionally, polished concrete helps regulate temperature better, so you are also saving on your heating and air conditioning costs.

In short, it is worth the money and time required for our concrete polishing services. Concrete polishing does not take a long time, and it is relatively low cost when you consider what you will be saving over the long term. Why leave your floors looking bleak and gray when you can add the professional touch of polished concrete?
