Although it offers your facility a clean, modern look, polished concrete is prone to a variety of vulnerabilities that can damage its appearance over time. While you don’t need to wax them as you do with traditional hard floor systems, you do have to implement ongoing concrete cleaning programs and maintain a regular maintenance program to optimize their appearance.
That’s because polished concrete floors are prone to issues such as:
- Etching from chemical spills
- Stains from general liquid spills
- Patterns from foot traffic
These challenges develop in part because concrete has a soft, porous underbelly that requires perpetual maintenance. A regular cleaning program is a fundamental first step toward maintaining aesthetically pleasing concrete floors, but more serious issues can develop. When left untreated, concrete stains can eventually become a permanent feature of your floor’s surface. When properly treated, these issues can be addressed with no lasting impact.
