What is Concrete Polishing
Polished concrete is a high gloss flooring finish that is attained by using special diamond concrete grinding equipment. This concrete grinding equipment uses diamond impregnated abrasive disks, which are similar to sandpaper, to grind down concrete surfaces to the desired degree of shine and smoothness. Polished concrete has a very shiny, high gloss surface that is low maintenance and attractive. Polished concrete can also be stained or colored using special stain to create a variety of patterns and colors.
At Advanced Environmental Services, we offer concrete stain application services using a variety of types of stain. Our concrete polishing and staining services can be an affordable alternative to replicate the look of polished stone or other expensive flooring surfaces such as marble or granite.

Can all Concrete be Polished?
Yes, nearly all types of concrete flooring can be polished. At Advanced Environmental Services, we offer these concrete polishing services for almost all types of concrete floors. Our concrete polishing services are available for both new and old concrete floors as long as the floor is determined to be structurally sound. Generally, new concrete floors must cure and harden for a certain number of days prior to polishing. Additionally, old and existing concrete may need to be cleaned using concrete grinding or shot blasting prior to concrete polishing.
Are Polished Concrete Floors Slippery?
Although concrete polishing turns regular concrete surfaces into smooth, high gloss floors, it does not typically result in the creation of an overly slippery surface. In general, clean, dry polished concrete surfaces are no more slippery than plain concrete surfaces, and they are often less slippery than waxed linoleum or polished marble floors.
How do I Maintain Polished Concrete Floors?
Our concrete polishing services result in the development of a very durable and low maintenance flooring surface. This flooring will not trap dirt, dust, or mold and can easily be wiped clean with a damp mop to remove any dust or grit that may have accumulated on the surface. Typically, polished concrete is hard wearing and will maintain its shine for years.
