Concrete polished floor in a facility. How Concrete Polishing and Restoration Checklists Save Time and Money

Con­crete pol­ish­ing has become one of the most sought-after solu­tions for facil­i­ty floor­ing across indus­tries. Pol­ish­ing your con­crete floors enhances their appear­ance, dura­bil­i­ty, and longevi­ty while reduc­ing both short- and long-term main­te­nance costs. In pre­vi­ous blogs, we dis­cussed how the many ben­e­fits of con­crete pol­ish­ing ulti­mate­ly help busi­ness­es cut costs and avoid major inter­rup­tions. That said, prop­er plan­ning is required to max­i­mize these ben­e­fits. So, before you invest in con­crete pol­ish­ing, you should devel­op a check­list that sets you off on the right foot and pro­vides ongo­ing sup­port for your facil­i­ty floor­ing needs.

Here’s how con­crete pol­ish­ing and restora­tion check­lists save time and mon­ey at your facility.

How Con­crete Pol­ish­ing and Restora­tion Check­lists Save Time and Mon­ey at Your Facility

Have Every­thing You Need at the Ready

Like oth­er floor ren­o­va­tions, con­crete pol­ish­ing can only be done with the right prepa­ra­tions, equip­ment, tools, and resources. Whether you’re prepar­ing to pol­ish your floors for the first time or your pol­ished floors need main­te­nance, it helps to have a detailed list of every­thing you need so no time is wast­ed. An expe­ri­enced floor­ing con­trac­tor can help you cre­ate this list and should ide­al­ly bring all the nec­es­sary equip­ment to the work­site on the day – they’ll know pre­cise­ly what to bring by first thor­ough­ly inspect­ing your floors.

Avoid Unnec­es­sary Costs

Though con­crete floor pol­ish­ing is a sim­i­lar process every time, every project is unique – this is espe­cial­ly true when it comes to main­tain­ing your pol­ished floor­ing. Where­as pol­ished floors require peri­od­ic clean­ing, oth­ers might need patch­ing or refin­ish­ing. With­out a detailed check­list of your floor’s cur­rent con­di­tion, you and your con­trac­tors might waste time and mon­ey on repairs and main­te­nance tasks that aren’t actu­al­ly required. Like­wise, a lack of clar­i­ty on these mat­ters might cause con­trac­tors to neglect an impor­tant main­te­nance task that results in sig­nif­i­cant issues down the road. In either case, the out­come is increased expens­es and less effi­cient process­es. A con­crete pol­ish­ing and restora­tion check­list will ensure that your floors receive the pre­cise amount of care and pre­ven­tive main­te­nance, so you’re not overex­tend­ing your bud­get or schedule. 

Reduce Lia­bil­i­ty

The con­di­tion of your floor­ing has a sig­nif­i­cant bear­ing on your facility’s over­all safe­ty lev­el. Reg­u­la­to­ry bod­ies that over­see work­place safe­ty (such as OSHA) require that build­ings meet var­i­ous safe­ty stan­dards to remain oper­a­tional. Falling out of com­pli­ance with these reg­u­la­tions can result in major fines and penal­ties. Invest­ing in a pol­ished con­crete floor at your facil­i­ty already gives you a leg up when it comes to com­ply­ing with some of these health and safe­ty codes. After all, pol­ished floors are high­ly vis­i­ble, durable, dust-resis­tant, safe to walk on, and easy to main­tain. But just because pol­ished floors are low-main­te­nance doesn’t mean they’re main­te­nance-free. If you don’t adhere to a main­te­nance check­list, your pol­ished floors may even­tu­al­ly fall out of com­pli­ance with OSHA and oth­er orga­ni­za­tions, putting your busi­ness at risk of cost­ly, time-con­sum­ing vio­la­tions. Stick­ing to a thor­ough con­crete pol­ish­ing and restora­tion check­list will reduce these liabilities.

Elim­i­nate Interruptions

Con­crete pol­ish­ing and repair projects take time and space, which can great­ly intrude on your nor­mal oper­a­tions. After all, func­tion­al floor­ing is required for just about every­thing that hap­pens at your work­place. With prop­er main­te­nance, how­ev­er, you can steer clear of the most time-inten­sive floor projects for a long time to come. The check­list that you and your con­crete pol­ish­ing con­trac­tors come up with should be designed to keep your floors in great shape. This way, you won’t have to endure the pro­longed down­time that comes with exten­sive floor restora­tion projects. Indeed, a prop­er­ly main­tained pol­ished con­crete floor can, in the­o­ry, endure for 100 years or more.
