Polished concrete is an excellent choice for homes, offices, or anywhere chemicals are not in use. While water resistant, chemical spills have a tendency to etch and mar the surface; in which case, epoxy would be the better choice. Virtually indestructible, polishing increases the density and hardens the concrete, and the desired sheen is obtained, from matte to high gloss, by the use of different sanding grit. Colors are bright and vivid. Not only does polished concrete last longer than standard flooring with less maintenance, it is easier and less costly to refurbish should the need arise. Generally, a damp mopping is all that is needed to keep this floor looking like new.
