Concrete floors are great for a range of commercial environments due to their long lifespan, cost-effective maintenance and reflective and hygienic properties. They are also  able to withstand the heavy foot traffic of a lot of visitors and create an upscale flooring option for high-profile reception areas, offices, hairdressers and retail buildings. Installing a concrete floor in your commercial space might require you to hire concrete grinders in order to achieve the fine polished finish you’re looking for. A concrete grinder is used to grind concrete and level and polish the floor using rapidly rotating disks, you can use different grit sizes to achieve different levels of shine.

Here are four spaces that might require concrete grinder hire.

Offices

Upgrading your office by adding concrete flooring is a great decision and will create a space that is easier to clean and looks great, providing a professional first impression to potential clients or business associates. To achieve a polished concrete floor for your office, it’s wise to hire a concrete grinder from a professional flooring machine hire company and use their expertise to advise you on the best grinders for the job.

Restaurants

Whether you’re opening a new restaurant or renovating an existing one, hiring concrete grinders will create a contemporary stylish finish to your restaurant. Polished concrete flooring is ideal for cafes, breweries, coffee shops and bakeries and hiring a concrete grinder will give you a level surface suitable for bar areas, dining rooms and waiting areas.

Schools and universities

Educational institutions have to withstand a lot of foot traffic, where hundreds of students travel across campus to get to their next class. These areas are ideal for durable concrete flooring solutions and will require concrete grinder hire in order to ensure a level, non-slip floor for students and staff to safely travel around school. Museums are a similar commercial space that would require concrete grinder hire, as such a large area of flooring needs to be levelled and polished to make the space safe and attractive for a large number of visitors.

Retail spaces and shopping centres

Retail spaces rely on an attractive shopfront to draw in customers and require a durable and alluring floor. This is when concrete grinder hire would help to elevate your retail space by creating a polished floor for your shop. Levelling and polishing your concrete floor creates a professional and welcoming aesthetic that reflects light well and is easy to maintain.
