3 Ways Polished Concrete Flooring Adds to Proactive Facility Maintenance

 3 Ways Polished Concrete Flooring Adds to Proactive Facility Maintenance

Busi­ness­es that neglect prop­er facil­i­ty main­te­nance can quick­ly find them­selves in dire straits as inef­fi­cien­cies pile up, equip­ment breaks down, morale takes a hit, and com­pli­ance issues arise. While it’s true that tak­ing care of your facil­i­ty isn’t free, it’s much more cost­ly in the long run to deal with major repairs and replace­ments. The more a facil­i­ty can do to increase the effec­tive­ness and effi­cien­cy of main­te­nance pro­to­cols, the bet­ter. As it turns out, cer­tain improve­ments to your floor­ing can great­ly reduce the bur­den of reg­u­lar and peri­od­ic main­te­nance tasks. Con­crete pol­ish­ing involves grind­ing con­crete down until per­fect­ly smooth and then apply­ing a den­si­fy­ing, seal­ing agent for a durable, glossy fin­ish. Let’s explore three ways pol­ished con­crete floor­ing con­tributes to your facility’s proac­tive main­te­nance protocols.

1. Pro­tects Your Floor­ing and Facil­i­ty from a Vari­ety of Threats

The more you pro­tect your floors, the less you’ll have to wor­ry about cost­ly repairs, safe­ty haz­ards, and the like. For­tu­nate­ly, con­crete pol­ish­ing shields a facility’s floor­ing from many threats. For starters, the hard­ened sur­face afford­ed by con­crete pol­ish­ing and grind­ing braces the floor for impact and keeps scratch­es and scuffs at bay. Pol­ished con­crete floors are breath­able so ele­vat­ed mois­ture in the slab is not a con­cern typ­i­cal­ly. The smooth, pol­ished sur­face makes it dif­fi­cult for dust and dirt to linger, too, so you can enjoy bet­ter indoor air qual­i­ty. And while the glossy sur­face might seem slip­pery at first glance, prop­er­ly pol­ished floors are slip-resis­tant, improv­ing safe­ty out­comes in your facil­i­ty. All of these pro­tec­tive advan­tages mean that a facil­i­ty becomes inher­ent­ly more secure with pol­ished floors than it was before installing them.

2. Frees Up Time and Resources for Oth­er Main­te­nance Projects

Ulti­mate­ly, the ben­e­fits of pol­ished con­crete out­lined above trans­late to less main­te­nance-inten­sive floor­ing. Sure, you’ll still have to sweep and clean your pol­ished con­crete floors reg­u­lar­ly, how­ev­er you elim­i­nate the need to strip and wax or re-coat, elim­i­nat­ing your effort over­all. The result­ing time, ener­gy, and resources saved can be used on oth­er impor­tant mat­ters with­in your facil­i­ty. In oth­er words, con­crete pol­ish­ing con­trac­tors let you bet­ter allo­cate your main­te­nance-relat­ed resources for an even more proac­tive and opti­mized pro­gram. If, for instance, your busi­ness was lack­ing in terms of car­ing for its inte­ri­or paint job or dis­in­fec­tion pro­to­cols, enjoy­ing low-main­te­nance floor­ing will let you give these mat­ters the atten­tion and ener­gy they deserve. 

3. Increase Inte­ri­or Visibility

Stained and pol­ished con­crete floors can sig­nif­i­cant­ly enhance your facility’s atmos­phere thanks to their bright, reflec­tive sur­faces. This enhance­ment isn’t mere­ly an aes­thet­ic boon, how­ev­er. Indeed, there are prac­ti­cal advan­tages to fur­ther illu­mi­nat­ing your inte­ri­or. For starters, an inher­ent­ly brighter facil­i­ty doesn’t need to ask as much of its light sources to retain vis­i­bil­i­ty, help­ing said facil­i­ty cut down on ener­gy costs. More­over, when sur­faces are bet­ter lit, those tasked with main­te­nance can more eas­i­ly make out poten­tial prob­lems that need address­ing. In this way, con­crete pol­ished floors help you shine a light on exist­ing and future facil­i­ty main­te­nance concerns.

What Are the Ben­e­fits of Pol­ished Con­crete Floors?

Pol­ished con­crete floors are pro­tec­tive, long-last­ing, visu­al­ly pleas­ing, low-main­te­nance, slip-resis­tant, and more. All of these advan­tages con­tribute to a more effi­cient facil­i­ty main­te­nance plan.
