The Concrete Grinding Process

Our concrete floor polishing process begins with a thorough assessment of your floor's current condition. We evaluate any existing damages, imperfections, and your specific needs and expectations. This allows us to develop a tailored plan to ensure the best results for your polished concrete floor.

Stage 1: Crack and Blemish Repair

Our concrete polishing process is a multi-step procedure designed to gradually smooth and finish the concrete surface. We use advanced grinding machines with diamond abrasives to methodically polish the floor through up to 10 stages, starting from coarse grits down to fine polishing pads.The process begins by repairing any cracks, holes, or imperfections in the concrete with filler and epoxy resins.

Stage 2: Initial Grinding

We then use a coarse diamond grinding pad, such as a 16 to 30 grit, to aggressively cut the concrete surface to a uniform level.

Stage 3: Successive Grinding and coating

Progressively finer grit pads, from 60 to 3000 grit, are then used to refine and smooth the concrete, closing pores and densifying the surface.

Stage 4: Burnishing for Gloss

The last coating stages use very fine resin pads to burnish the floor to a high gloss level.Concrete densifiers and hardeners are also worked into the concrete throughout the process to strengthen and protect the floor from within. The end result is a stunning glossy surface that looks like polished stone.

Before And After Of Concrete Grinding And Coating

The Benefits of Concrete Coating

Polished concrete offers property owners many advantages over other types of flooring:

  • Extreme Durability: The concrete densification process makes coated concrete up to four times stronger than untreated floors. The smooth, nonporous surface also resists staining, etching, and abrasion from traffic.
  • Low Maintenance: Properly coated concrete is easy to clean by just dust mopping or using mild cleaners. It never needs waxing or recoating, retaining its shine for years with minimal upkeep.
  • Customisable Aesthetics: Concrete can be stained or dyed in any colour during polishing to match your design aesthetic. Different levels of gloss are also possible, from satin matte to super high gloss.
  • Improved Lighting: The high reflectivity of polished concrete helps brighten indoor spaces, reducing energy costs. The light reflective surface also makes the area seem cleaner and more spacious.
  • Increased Safety: Concrete polishing leaves the floor with a non-slip, light textured surface according to safety standards. This traction helps prevent slips and falls, even when the floor is wet.

Protective Coatings and Sealers

To further improve stain protection and ease of maintenance, CleaningPro offers optional clear coatings and sealers for concrete:

  • Epoxy Coatings: High solids epoxy coatings are extremely durable, chemically resistant surface barriers ideal for industrial settings. They protect against oils and harsh cleaning chemicals that can damage concrete.
  • Polyurethane Sealers: Solvent-based polyurethanes form a protective wear layer that is highly scratch, scuff, and UV resistant. They are non-yellowing, clear coatings excellent for high-traffic areas.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What does the concrete grinding and coating process involve?

Our concrete polishing system uses multi-step grinding and polishing with specialised diamond abrasives to smooth and finish the concrete surface. We start with coarse grit pads, closing pores and removing imperfections, then refine with progressively finer grits down to a super fine polish.

How long does the concrete take to coate ?

The size of the area, concrete hardness, and desired gloss level determine polishing times. For reference, our team can polish 500 sq ft of standard concrete to a medium gloss in 1 to 2 days. High gloss polishing takes longer than lower sheen finishes.

How often does polished concrete need resealing or recoating?

The extreme densification of the concrete during polishing makes resealing unnecessary for 5+ years. Optional protective coatings like epoxy or polyurethane may need touch ups every 2 to 4 years in high traffic areas. But the base polished concrete maintains its integrity for over a decade.

What kind of shine can you get with concrete coating?

We offer matte, satin, semi-gloss, and high gloss coating finishes. The level of sheen depends on the fineness of the final coating stage - we use 800 grit pads for medium gloss and 3000 grit for ultra high gloss. The gloss level can be customised to your preference.

Can you match the polished concrete to my interior colour scheme?

Yes, concrete polishing allows you to introduce any colour tint or dye into the concrete mix before grinding begins. We can match any paint swatch you provide, so the floor seamlessly fits your interior design. Staining also enables realistic faux finishes like marble or stone.

Can existing old concrete be coated?

Yes, coating rejuvenates old concrete by removing blemishes, stains, and scratches accumulated over the years. We fill cracks and holes, then mechanically grind the surface to reveal the fine aggregate underneath, leaving you with a “new” durable floor. Coating is great for restoration.

Is the floor slippery after coating?

No, coated concrete has more traction and slip resistance than untreated concrete. The polishing process exposes the fine aggregates in the concrete matrix, providing grip even when wet. Additionally, we apply non-slip additives to meet safety standards for slip resistance.Contact our friendly staff at CleaningPro Auckland today to discuss transforming your old, stained concrete into a beautiful work of art!
