The buying decision for polished concrete floors

Polished concrete floors are a relatively new option for quality flooring in new or renovated homes. Concrete floors have long been used in industrial applications such as factories, warehouses and offices, but their elevation to residential use has only happened in Melbourne and Australia in the past 10 years or so, when the art of concrete polishing reached our shores.

Concrete polishing transforms what most would consider a drab material into a fascinating, highly detailed surface that can hold a glass-like gloss for decades. Most people, on seeing a polished concrete floor for the first time, exclaim on its beauty.

You can find more about the technical aspects of how polished concrete floors are created by reading our Geoshine™ concrete floor polishing system pages.

Step 1: Advantages of polished concrete floors over other surfaces

Durability – a Geoshine™ polished concrete floor is the hardest, most durable flooring surface you can install. We guarantee it for 10 years, and recommend a repolish, buff and reseal after that time.

Ease of cleaning – just vacuum and mop a polished concrete floor using eco-friendly, non-acidic cleaners. Spills can be wiped up with a soft cloth without staining.

Energy efficient – polished concrete floors help your house retain coolness in summer and warmth in winter, meaning you save on electricity use.

Non-allergenic – polished concrete floors have a non-porous surface that’s easy to clean, meaning there is no place for bugs or allergens to hide.

Light reflective – a high-gloss polished concrete floor can increase the natural light in a room without glare, saving on electricity use.

Cost effective – once your Geoshine™ polished concrete floor is completed, your upkeep costs are nil for the next 10 years. There is no need for repolishing, no rising edges, no trip points, no broken boards, no steam cleaning, no stain removal, no tiles to replace.

Beautiful – perhaps only a hand-woven rug can match the intricate beauty possible in polished concrete floors.

Individual – the colour and aggregate of your concrete plus the cut and polish level will create a unique polished concrete floor, from simple to extravagant, to suit your interior design intent.
