Polished Concrete

When a restaurant in the Chicago, Illinois are was looking for the right concrete flooring solution for their facility they sought out Floorcare USA.

This Chicago restaurant wanted a concrete floor that has the following performance attributes:

  1. Beautiful
  2.  Durable
  3. Light reflective
  4. Green
  5.  LEED
  6. Easy To Clean
  7. Easy to maintain and renew
  8.  One of a kind

This lead the client to choose an architectural polished concrete floor and concrete dye/stain flooring system.
The difference between lesser vendors “polished” concrete floors and the polished concrete floors is that Floorcare performs a true architectural polish of the concrete slab.
Floorcare USA truly REFINES the concrete slab.
Lesser polished concrete vendors will skip steps on the front end of the project to simply give the client a buffed, shiny surface that looks good when new.
However, this type of buffed concrete floor only delivers short term performance.
When Floorcare USA performs a polished concrete process, Floorcare truly grinds and REFINES the slab to achieve the very best performing polished concrete floors.

Other performance attributes of Polished Concrete Floors include:

  • Stunning visual and functional rejuvenation of existing
    concrete floors
  • Custom-tailored finish and practical protection for new concrete floors
  • Dramatic long-term maintenance cost reduction
  • Minimizes facility downtime
  • Factory-trained contractors ready to provide comprehensive solutions to your floor needs
  • Allows concrete to breath, reducing almost all problems with rising moisture.
  • Non-dusting guarantee
  •  Safe, non-slip, certified “High Traction”
  • Extended floor life and long-term appearance.
  • Increases reflectivity of the floor and reduces lighting costs.
  • Green, Green, Green process and products. Qualified to be used on LEED projects, all the way up
    to Platinum.
  • Environmentally friendly, no solvents

On this particular project, Floorcare USA mechanically grinded the concrete to truly prep it, then performed a sequential polishing process up to 1500- grit levels.
After the initial grind process, Floorcare USA installed decorative score cuts to introduce the geometric shapes and patterns into the floor and then applied concrete dye/stain in the various colors selected by the client.
Once this process was performed, the floors were then burnished and concrete guard application was performed.
This Chicago, Illinois restaurant now has beautiful and durable polished concrete floors that will deliver years of reliable performance if maintained properly.
