Testimonials

I noticed that some of the tiles in my bathroom walls were loose and the grout was coming off. I am a very busy so kept on postponing calling someone to fix it. One day I got home and the loose tiles were lying broken on the floor. Can you imagine my frustration? I rang my brother in panic and he gave me Tile Cleaners' contact details. I rang them straight away. The guys told me I needed a tiler and professional regrouting work done so I thought it would take ages to fix my problem. However they organized the work very well. I had my tiles fixed on Friday night the same week and the entire bathroom regrouted on Saturday. Thank you some much for your quick help; it was such a relief.

Polished Concrete

Is that really concrete?

Concrete in most cases will not conjure thoughts of beautiful and aesthetically appealing environments, still we use concrete almost without exception in all buildings we construct.

Concrete has been around for centuries, the Romans widely used concrete to build some of their most impressive constructions (the Pantheon in Rome was built around 120AD and is still the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world). Around the Mediterranean, aqueducts, drainage systems and amphitheatres built using concrete 2000 years ago can still be found. It wasn't until the 1990s however that concrete was discovered (by accident) to produce the highly durable and attractive surfaces we know today.

Long relegated to life as a sub-floor, concrete slabs have been hidden under flooring materials such as carpet, hardwood, vinyl or ceramic tiles. But why waste money and resources to add another layer of flooring when you can simply leave the concrete exposed?

When considering the life-span of an overlayment, the process represents expensive installation, ongoing maintenance and eventual replacement costs, however in all circumstances the underlying structural concrete remains. Polishing concrete eliminates the need for overlayments by converting the actual existing concrete into an economical, durable and low maintenance finished surface with spectacular visual appeal.

How is it done?

How does the concrete become so shiny?

Concrete polishing is a fast and inexpensive method of grinding and polishing pre-existing concrete surfaces with diamond sharp disks to create smooth, attractive and highly durable flooring. Existing slabs can be ground and polished to create very hard wearing, scratch and stain resistant surfaces that will not chip or peel and are extremely easy to maintain.

To achieve a smooth, glossy surface, our technicians start by using grinding machines with rotating diamond-abrasive heads to remove the surface layer of the concrete in order to level the floor and remove any deep scratches. Following the initial stage, finer diamond-abrasives are progressively used (usually starting at 40 grit going up to 3,000 grit) to reveal or expose the aggregate within the slab (new or existing slab).

Typically, concrete is not considered polished before 400 grit which is known as honed concrete, polished concrete is normally finished to either the 800, 1500, or 3000 grit level depending on the shine and reflection specified. Polished concrete is measured in grades and finishes: the higher the grade, the larger the exposed aggregates; similarly, the higher the finish, the shinier the polish.

At one stage during the grinding process, sodium silicate is applied to the concrete in order to increase its density, or harden the concrete. The sodium silicate solution is absorbed into the concrete, filling the pores. A chemical reaction then occurs with the calcium hydroxide in the concrete further strengthening and crystallising the material.

Further grinding with progressively finer diamonds creates a very smooth surface and when completed also provides a high degree of sheen. (The surface instead of having a pitted surface that refracts light will reflect light from off the floor.)

Because polishing is a multi-step 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.

Polished Concrete Floors Are Versatile

Because polishing concrete is a step-by-step process, business owners and home-owners alike are able to choose the level of shine, from satin to a very high gloss finish. This amount of versatility makes our concrete floors an excellent flooring option for a variety of locations. Some of the most common places you’ll find our polished concrete floors include:

  • Restaurants
  • Hotels
  • Garage floors
  • Living Rooms
  • Schools
  • Warehouses
  • Retail stores
  • Office buildings
  • Car dealership showrooms

If you're installing a new concrete floor, the choices of textures, colours, and finishes are nearly limitless. Texture and finish are determined by the grade of concrete used, how it's poured, and the polishing process. Colour can be introduced in several ways: Pigment can be mixed into wet concrete to achieve any desired colour (coloured aggregates, too, such as stones, marbles, and pieces of glass, can be added), or an acid- or water-based stain can be used to colour dry concrete.

WANT A FLOOR THAT LOOKS AMAZING, IS EASY TO CLEAN AND DURABLE?

Polished concrete can range from a paste polish, where the final colour is uniform with no aggregate visible, all the way to a deep polish where large aggregate is exposed, closely resembling terrazzo.

  • Cream polished concrete floor
  • This is a very popular style that simply polishes the cream at the top level of the concrete not exposing any of the sand or aggregate. A cream polish will give you the smoothest and most consistent sheen possible, which is easy to clean and maintain. Cream polished concrete finishes can range from low gloss matte to a high gloss mirror finish.

  • The salt and pepper polished concrete floor
  • This look has a fine aggregate exposure and is produced by removing a very thin top layer of the concrete during the initial grinding process to expose some of the sand aggregate. The exposed sand resembles salt and pepper and provides a nice colour accent to the concrete without the addition of stains or dyes.

  • Light aggregate exposure polished concrete floor
  • Medium exposure to reveal the top side of the aggregates. This concrete floor style has a light aggregate exposure with little to no large aggregate exposure spread randomly.

  • Heavy aggregate exposure polished concrete floor
  • Heavy exposure to reveal the maximum size of aggregate. This finish has a large aggregate exposure with little to none fine aggregate exposure which is spread randomly.

    Concrete Polishing offers a wide selection of finishes

    • Ground concrete (20 to 100 Grit grinding)
    • Honed concrete (200 to 400 Grit polishing)
    • Low Sheen Polishing (400 to 800 Grit polishing)
    • High Shine Polishing (800 to 3000 Grit polishing)

Energy Efficiency

Concrete floors are ideal for passive solar home designs. Concrete floors shielded from the sun will stay cool for longer and can actually help lower air-conditioning costs, conversely in the cooler months concrete floors will absorb the heat from direct sunlight and release the stored heat as needed at night to keep rooms warmer.

Low Maintenance

Polished concrete floors are low maintenance, more hard wearing and more likely to withstand pressure than other flooring options, they do not require aggressive cleaners or brushes to lift dirt away.

Mopping with warm soapy water once a week is the only maintenance required. A concrete floor that has been hardened and polished has an extremely long life expectancy when compared to other flooring. For example, standard floor coverings may only last 10–20 years, but a polished concrete floor that has been properly maintained can easily give 100+ years of service.

If your polished concrete is situated in a large work space or puplic space, an auto-scrubber can be used with super soft brushes and a gentle cleaner designed for polished concrete, to suspend dirt off the floor and squeegee it up.

Concrete floors are more enduring and easier to clean than many flooring options. A well maintained, regularly cleaned concrete floor will last for decades.
