Flooring is one of the most defining parts of both commercial and residential properties. However, many of us simply use the flooring the property came with, as removing stone or wood floors can be time-consuming and expensive. However, this can leave you stuck with an old and unattractive floor with not much room for improvement. This is where floor grinding comes in…
What is Floor Grinding?
The grinding part of floor grinding is, in reality, slightly more gentle than the name suggests.
- Floor grinders use several rotating disks fashioned from abrasive material to skim off the top layer of flooring material.
- This not only levels the floor but removes imperfections, leaving the surface with a polished glow.
- Floor grinders are most commonly used on concrete and stone, as well as natural hardwood flooring.
- They can prepare a floor for further maintenance or give it a lustre that’s perfect on its own.
What Are the Advantages of Floor Grinding?
Floor grinding is an affordable investment, that keeps your floor looking beautiful for longer. Let’s dive into some of the advantages of hiring floor grinding specialists for your property.
1. Surface Longevity
By regularly cleaning stone and wood flooring with a grinder, any corrosives like dirt and grit are swiftly removed. This means your floor is much less likely to develop any unfixable issues, or tough stains and imperfections. In this way, floor grinding increases the durability of your floor and lengthens its lifespan, especially in high-traffic areas.
2. Efficient Cleaning
Regular cleaning from a grinder is often a simple and quick undertaking. Floor grinding is much easier than brushes, mops, waxes, and getting on your hands and knees to scrub away dirt from tricky concrete floors. It’s also a faster process, as the floor grinder has all the benefits of the above cleaning techniques built into a single machine.
3. Affordable and Cost-Effective
Floor grinding is indeed an investment. However, compared to other floor cleaning methods or complete floor renovation, floor grinding is very affordable. Grinding will save you money on repairs and renovations and the floor grinder itself will last for decades, with replacement disks available incredibly cheaply.
4. Unmatched Beauty
You might not even realise how beautiful your floor can look once the floor grinder has been at it. Floor grinders clean flooring materials, but also smooth and polish them, leaving natural stone and hardwood floors with a classic sheen. This elevates any interior, from minimalist to industrial designs, and also keeps your floor as hygienic as possible.
Finally, in comparison to the harsh chemical cleaning agents and polishes used in regular floor cleaning, floor grinding is much less harmful to the environment. When it comes to floor grinding, the machine itself uses electricity to run, and that’s about it for its carbon footprint.
