Why Choose Polished Concrete Flooring?

by Guest on Jan 20, 2012

When deciding on what flooring to put in a new home, everyone wants that will enhance the overall appearance of their home. Installing a polished concrete floor is not only pleasant to look at, but it offers many health benefits for the whole family. Plus, it is much less expensive than other popular flooring options. From older an older country home to a modern condo, eco-friendly polished concrete floors are an ideal option.

One of the biggest advantages of polished concrete floors is that they are so easy to clean. Since polished concrete floors consist of one solid piece, dirt and moisture cannot accumulate in any crevice of the concrete flooring. This prevents health problems caused by harmful bacteria and viruses that commonly grow in other types of flooring. Polished concrete flooring is especially perfect for those who suffer from allergies to mold, as it cannot develop on this versatile type of flooring. All members of the family can enjoy the right to breathe easily and enjoy good health inside their new home with polished cement floors.

Carpeting is a popular flooring choice in many homes, but it is virtually impossible to keep clean. Pet hair, dust and other allergens find a cozy home in the carpeting. Especially for small children, this is very hazardous. On the other hand, concrete floors that are polished with high-shine resin make effective cleaning simple. With a quick sweep and mop, polished concrete floors take on a spotless shine.

It is a fact of life that everyone brings in potentially dangerous microorganisms into the home on a daily basis, even if shoes are removed before entering. Also, a spill on a carpeted floor is much harder to clean up than a spill on a polished concrete floor. Especially in a home with toddlers, keeping a floor properly disinfected is a must. Because polished concrete floors do not have a porous surface, spills are even easier to clean up than on linoleum or laminate floors.

Several layers are other materials are placed under many types of flooring, from hardwood and laminate to epoxy flooring. In effect, when a spill occurs, liquids often penetrate to the lower layers of the flooring. Moisture and mold develop as a result, and this can quickly spread throughout the home. The advantage of concrete floors is that they naturally repel moisture and ensure that your home remains a safe and mold-free environment.

Not only will you protect the health of your immediate family by installing polished concrete flooring, but that of the environment in general. This is because polished concrete flooring uses less raw materials than many other types of flooring. Also, very minimal manufacturing is involved in producing polished concrete flooring. You will notice that your heating and cooling bill will be less since polished concrete floors provide natural insulation during extreme temperatures. By installing polished concrete flooring, not only can you have beautiful, easy to clean flooring, but you can play a part in protecting the environment for generations to come.
