Benefits of Polished Concrete Floors in
Warehouses & Other Commercial Uses
One of the more obvious reasons to have polished concrete flooring is because of the concrete’s ability to withstand the test of time. Not just a long-lasting material for flooring, concrete is the hardest, most substantial flooring there is.
Concrete floor finishes provide the benefit of a safe, non slip surface with gripping properties.
One of the more conventional types of flooring, concrete polishing does not require regular deep cleaning but rather a simple occasional mop. This concrete flooring is an attractive idea because it doesn’t demand such intensity for cleaning, which can make it desirable for restaurant workers, homeowners, warehouse employees, and more
Polished concrete flooring gives you that elegant, glossy look at a fraction of the cost of marble flooring. Existing concrete slabs just need to be polished, eliminating the need for expensive floor coverings, and touch-up polishing is quite inexpensive. There is also a wide array of finishes, tints, and dyes to choose from. You can rest assured that your beautiful concrete floors will last for years to come.
You Need a Tough Concrete Floor
There are lots of elements at play in your warehouse at any given time.
Forklifts whiz by, workers are continually walking about, materials get transported, and more. It would be best if you had a floor that could put up with such heavy traffic.
The wheels from vehicles and boots from workers can do a number on traditional concrete.
Plastic and rubber flooring are often worn down by such traffic as well. Not only that, but you need floors that are resistant to high impacts.
Say, for example, that one of your workers drops a large crate off the forklift. If your floor isn’t durable enough, it will crack and suffer damage.
A cracked, uneven floor is an obvious safety hazard to your employees.
Traditional concrete also has a lot of problems with dust accumulation. You want to keep your manufacturing warehouse clean.
After all, you’re building products that need to stay in pristine condition.
Also, the last thing you want to do at the end of a long hard day at work is to clean the dust off everything. An ideal warehouse floor is a seamless one that won’t create dust. Our Team also does concrete polishing.
Your Commercial Concrete Floors Must Be Able to Cope With..
- Spills and stains: Many warehouses deal with transporting liquids in some capacity. As a result, spills are inevitable sometimes. Surfaces like traditional concrete stain quite easily when something spills. Not only does this look bad, but it can lead to the buildup of chemicals in the concrete. The ideal floor for a warehouse is a non-porous one. We have many solutions at My Floor that are stain-resistant for this very reason!
- Maintaining grip when wet: If you do suffer a spill, then your floor will become slippery. If you’ve got a foundation with slip-resistance built-in, this won’t be an issue. Sadly, traditional concrete and other surfaces are not non-slip and are dangerous. Make sure you get a flooring solution from us that’s 100% slip-resistant!
- Extreme Wear and tear: Forklifts, dollies, trucks, machines, equipment, workers, and more will wear on your floor. You need a surface that’s incredibly durable so that it won’t crack under pressure. Not only that, but a surface that has a long lifespan is also ideal.
- Dust, dirt, footprints, mud, and debris: Warehouses tend to get messy. Workers wear boots inside and outside, dirt builds up, and machines create debris and dust. A non-porous, stain-resistant floor is a must. That way, you won’t have to waste a bunch of time cleaning at the end of the day. Our flooring solutions at My Floor are effortless to maintain!
