Concrete Polishing Seattle WA
Polishing is another great option for your Seattle concrete. Concrete is not only a rough textured block used for building. If you think of the last time you were in a Costco, you were walking over smooth concrete flooring. This type of flooring is polished concrete and provides an aesthetically pleasing different form to this commonly used building material. Bellow are ideas and benefits of concrete polishing in Seattle.
As said before, concrete is highly durable and relatively easy to maintain. The polished mirror like appearance is very pleasing, and commonly seen in commercial and industrial areas. For residential homes, polished concrete floors are commonly seen in the garage, basement, and or patio floors.
In truth, concrete polishing Seattle is very popular. It is estimated that approximately 15% of all new US floors installed are polished concrete floors. This may not be surprising in Seattle where it seems like almost everything is made out of concrete!

Benefits of Polished Concrete Flooring:
✔ Stain Resistant – The polishing process increases the density of the concrete flooring. After a sealant is applied to the top layer, the polished concrete will be able to repel water and oil, making stains difficult.
✔ Reduced Maintenance – Polished concrete floors do not require waxing or stripping for cleaning or appearance purposes. The sealed smooth surface is also simple to clean and dust and dirt comes off easily while stains won’t take hold.
✔ Affordable – Concrete flooring is very cost effective when compared with other types. If you take into account the reduced maintenance required and the durability, polished concrete flooring will save a lot of money over the lifetime of the floor.
✔ No Efflorescence – Efflorescence is the natural process of crystalline or salt deposits being left behind of the surface of stone, including concrete due to interaction of water with the material. Properly polished concrete does not have to worry about efflorescence compared with normal concrete surfaces. This may be even more important in areas with a lot of rain and moisture such as Seattle and the rest of Washington state.
