Polished Concrete Process
Unpolished, or unprocessed, concrete often has
some type of existing coating (i.e. epoxies) or an adhesive
(i.e. carpet adhesive, black mastic which is laid underneath existing tile, etc.)
that will have to be removed prior to polishing your
existing concrete surface.
1) GRINDING & CONCRETE PREP:
To begin the concrete polishing process we repair existing imperfections (i.e. cracks & holes) on the concrete surface.
The second step of the process involves grinding the concrete to reveal a smooth surface.
2) APPLICATION OF STAIN:
Once the concrete surface is properly prepped the stain is then applied to the concrete surface.
During this step of the process, the concrete surface will begin to shine. The concrete surface will be grinned again with a less intense grinding tooling.
At this stage the concrete area will now be polished with
concrete polishing equipment.
The final step is to use a burnishing pad after all of the polishing steps are completed. This will finish the concrete cleaning process and give your new polished concrete floor a beautiful shine.
