Concrete polishing Portsmouth
Like most surfaces, concrete gets dirty. This is especially true when concrete is exposed to natural elements such as wind, heat, cold, rain, snow, and more. Over time, the concrete will become blemished beyond what the eye can see and will require concrete cleaning and concrete polish. It involves treating the concrete with a chemical densifier and grinding it with progressively finer grinding tools. This removes a certain amount of the outside layer to expose cleaner and newer concrete. At our company, we understand concrete polishing well, and we know how to make concrete shine.
Concrete polishing is considered efficient because it uses material that is already there. Also, because most building foundations have a concrete slab or exposed brick, this is considered an environmentally friendly option as we are not replacing or wasting any material. In addition, concrete reduces allergens and dust mite problems and can remain durable to last a long time. Therefore, concrete polishing is a smart way to protect your green investment. That is why we recommend it to property owners instead of replacing concrete.
Concrete grinding or concrete polishing?
They are two main services when it comes to cleaning, servicing and maintaining of your concrete surface. Depending on the current condition of the surface you choose between simple concrete polish or go for deep complete concrete service including floor grinding.
If your floor is in rather good condition then you can go for simple concrete polish and buffing. The service is rather lite, thus the polishing and the buffing will clean the floor but will not remove the deep scratches and dings. If your floor was serviced in long period long period of time, then you must go for proper deep cleaning and polishing of the concrete.
When it comes to deep concrete cleaning, we believe that concrete grinding is the best method. The concrete sanding (or grinding) can be time and labor intensive because the whole process can involve up to 15 steps. That is its best to use our professional concrete polishing services. We do all the hard work well because we are skilled in this work due to our years of experience.
During the process, our floor polishers use professional equipment which ensure professional completion of the works. After the actual grinding process we proceed densifier to harden the surface to allow for polishing to occur. In addition, during the polishing process, we may use a grouting chemical to fill in any holes or cracks. Once we have polished the concrete and all work is complete, we apply a solution to protect the surface from oils or liquid spills.
All in all, concrete polishing that includes concrete sanding can take some time when it is done professionally. However, this is hands down is the best option to have it done right. Also, the amount of concrete polishing with concrete sanding that we are doing will determine how long the project will take. We will let you know time frames and cost after our initial free consultation When all is said and done, you will have a fresh look and feel to your concrete. The good news is that our polishing services are completely suitable for your Terrazzo floors as well.
