Not all of us can live in mansions and palaces, but one way to create a sense of grandeur in your humble abode is by simply adding marble, travertine, or granite. Marble and other natural stones add a unique feel and luxury to any home. Natural stone is found in the most opulent locations worldwide, and was even used for historic works of art, including the statue of David. The choices of colors and looks that this surface comes in can overwhelm you, but one major deciding factor other than its aesthetics is its finish. Do you prefer marble that is polished or honed? In many cases you will find that form over function isn’t always the applicable mantra. Call us today to receive your FREE, No-Obligation onsite rate quote.
Polished concrete is fast becoming the ultimate no-wax flooring material. Thanks to recent advances in polishing equipment and techniques, we are now able to grind concrete floor surfaces. Whether new or old, Simply Carpet Cleaning can bring your concrete to a high-gloss finish that never needs waxes or coatings. Factor in the superior durability and performance of concrete, and it’s no wonder why more retail, warehouse, office facilities and even residential homes are opting for polished concrete flooring as an alternative to marble, granite, tile, linoleum, or coated concrete. Many homeowners are catching on to the appeal of these smooth, high-luster floors, which can be dyed and stained to replicate the look of polished stone.
Because polishing is a multistep process, you can choose the level of sheen — from satin to high-gloss — that meets your maintenance and aesthetic requirements. This versatility makes polished concrete an ideal flooring material for a variety of applications.
Be aware that the process of polishing concrete floors requires a great deal of expertise and the use of specialized heavy-duty polishing machines equipped with diamond-impregnated disks that gradually grind down surfaces to the desired degree of shine and smoothness. Considering the investment in equipment and the skill required, it’s definitely not a project for the do-it-yourselfer. You’ll want to hire a professional concrete polishing contractor to do the work. Call us today for your FREE, No-Obligation onsite rate quote.
