Polished concrete floors are emerging as a popular trend in retail facilities, which have found that it is a desirable type of flooring for safety reasons. Concrete, unlike other common waxed or finished surfaces, is not slippery when wet, making it extremely safe in facilities with any kind of foot traffic.

On a daily basis, these floors are dust-mopped and autoscrubbed. To keep polished concrete floors maintained and performing optimally, the use of a quality polisher, applied with a buffer, is crucial. This brings out the shine so valued in this type of flooring. Combination machines that grind, polish, scrape, deep-scrub and strip come in handy for the type of routine maintenance needed.
