Concrete grinding is a process that can be used to give a concrete floor a shiny, lustrous and polished feel. Commercial polished concrete is concrete that has been thoroughly with a kind of chemical densifier, and then ground down with grinding tools that get progressively finer. A floor that has undergone the concrete grinding process that is properly maintained can easily last for over a hundred years.
Because of the fact that many modern buildings are already on a concrete slab, commercial concrete polishing can be much more cost effective and ecological than covering it with another flooring material. Concrete grinding from a professional concrete polisher can give a floor high light reflectivity. This can lend interior spaces a very clean and bright look, while also cutting down on the amount of artificial lighting in use.
While concrete grinding is often an ideal choice for schools because of the ease of maintenance and durability, it is not a good choice for music rooms. Concrete has a bad habit of causing acoustic issues that music students and teachers could both find to be quite bothersome, especially with a full band playing!
