Polished concrete in warehouses

Warehouse flooring sees quite a bit of wear and tear. The floors are often met with heavy equipment, falling boxes and rugged shoes. If you own or manage a warehouse, you may be tempted to choose cheap and dull flooring in order to save money when it needs to be repaired or replaced. You may even want to stick with plain concrete, but what if there is another option that could check all of your boxes?

Here is where polished concrete comes into play! Polished concrete is an excellent flooring choice for many different spaces. Many people choose polished concrete for commercial flooring because it is very beautiful. Not only can you choose from many different colors, but you can even choose to have your logo within the flooring. It is unique and can offer an aesthetic that will make your space stand out. 

Many flooring choices are not a great option when it comes to warehouses because they cannot stand up to the wear and tear that they will face on a daily basis. Because of this, your options are fairly limited, unless you want to be replacing your flooring often. Since warehouse flooring needs several qualities to make it efficient, here is why polished concrete is the best choice for this commercial flooring. 


With a space like a warehouse, there is likely to be many different types of equipment being used. Whether it is cars, trucks, forklifts or stacked crates, polished concrete can handle the pressure with no lasting damage. It will not leave an impression or dent the flooring surface.

Polished concrete is incredibly difficult to damage. This means things like dropped tools, sharp objects or wheels will not easily scratch or damage the floor. This type of environment needs flooring that will stand up to all of this heavy machinery and dropping of materials. Plus, warehouses are likely to have quite a bit of foot traffic, which is no match for polished concrete. 


Warehouses usually take up a very large amount of space in order to house everything it needs to. Because of this, you will want to pick a type of commercial flooring that will be easy to maintain and clean. You don’t want to be spending an unneeded amount of time taking care of your warehouse flooring, which is why polished concrete is so great. 

It is very easy to maintain and easy to clean. The biggest thing you will want to keep in mind is being sure to remove any abrasives from the surface. The best way to do this is to dust with a microfiber pad to remove any dirt and debris that could wear down on the surface. Next, you will want to wet mop the surface with clean water and a neutral flooring cleaner. 

This cleaning should take place daily and any spill should be cleaned up as quickly as possible and your polished concrete will last for years.
