Top 3 Benefits Of Grind And Seal Flooring
Updated: Jul 9
When trying to decide on a new epoxy flooring option for a commercial facility, the task might seem overwhelming at times. There are many different flooring options to choose from, and you might be left wondering what type of epoxy flooring would be best for your specific needs.
While there are an array of options available, one of the best options for any type of commercial facility is a grind and seal flooring system.
Grind and seal floors are easy to install, and can be completed without needing to shut down production. But what are the other key benefits? Keep reading to find out more.
Grind and Seal Epoxy Flooring Is Cost Effective
Grind and seal floors are the most cost effective flooring option available today. This is one of the major draws of installing this type of flooring system, because it can help to reduce the overall costs of production.
Concrete resurfacing, another common name for this type of flooring, is achieved by using the original concrete substrate that exists in your facility.
An experienced epoxy contractor will be able to assess whether or not your substrate will be able to withstand the grind and seal process, so it is best to not try to do this yourself.
After the original floor is ground down with diamond grinding tools, the floor can be refinished to the desired sheen. Additionally, since there is no existing floor to remove or dispose of, there are no costs associated with disposal or transfer of materials.
Grind and Seal Concrete Floors Are Easy To Clean And Maintain
Grind and seal concrete floors are simple to maintain and clean, mostly because they do not have the same level of cracks and crevices that are associated with other flooring systems.
As long as you keep them properly cleaned, which is a really simple process, these floors will be less likely to accumulate dust and particles that can cause issues within your facility.
Also, since these flooring systems require little to no maintenance, there will be no time taken away from your production schedule in order to deal with faulty flooring issues.
Concrete floor resurfacing is the simplest way to upgrade your flooring, and it can dramatically improve the way your facility looks and operates.
Grind and Seal Floor Coatings Are Long Lasting
Grind and seal floor coating has a dramatic effect on making your floor last longer, which is another key benefit of installing this type of flooring system.
This is for a variety of reasons, but the most important one is that a grind and seal concrete floor makes the concrete substrate resistant to high abrasion and long-term wear and tear. This has a serious impact on how long your concrete floor lasts, especially in situations where there is a lot of foot traffic or heavy machinery is used.
Since grind and seal floors use the original floor, and it is not something that is added on top of another flooring system, there also won’t be any peeling, cracking or delamination that takes place. This adds to the appeal of this flooring system, and is one of the major reasons why commercial facilities choose this option.
