People are quick to think that the sole benefit of polished concrete floors is the aesthetic appeal. Yes, this is one of the main benefits, but it offers other benefits that extend way beyond just physical appearance. It is eco-friendly, cost-effective, and most importantly, it has several health benefits.
Polished concrete floors make it easy to spot dirt. They are also incredibly easy to clean and will not hold dirt like other flooring options. Carpet and wood can be a safe haven for dust, pollen and even micro-organisms, with the added potential of rotting or decaying over time. Polished concrete will easily last for decades, and is not conducive to the build-up of dust and organisms.
Carpet and other flooring materials often foster the growth of mold when exposed to moisture, and even small amounts of mold and mildew can pose a health risk. Polished concrete floors do not allow mold growth. For those who have asthma and allergies, these floors will provide you with a much more comfortable working environment.
