In the world of residential, commercial, and industrial remodeling, polished concrete is creating a craze. Polished concrete surfaces require minimal maintenance and repairs. The polished look stays put, not requiring any waxing or buffing as waxed surfaces do. It provides a high traction concrete floor that is durable and stunning. This inexpensive option can be used on almost any San Jose concrete surface, be it indoors or out.
Polishing concrete is like sanding wood. The surface is ground with abrasive pads that progress from coarse to fine. There are two ways of polishing slabs: the wet and dry method. The wet method keeps flying dust to a minimum and keeps the polishing equipment cool. This, however, produces a sludge that can be difficult to dispose of. The dry method will send dust flying all over the place, however, a vacuum can be set up to suck the dust in before it goes airborne. No matter which method is used, impressive results are guaranteed.
