When asked to list common flooring materials, most people will probably mention wood, tile, stone, and perhaps linoleum. If you ask them to only list elegant and durable materials, the list can be narrowed down to tiles and stones.
However, cement is unlikely to be on any of the lists. Concrete polishes have become one of the most popular floor coverings for residential, commercial, industrial and medical buildings. Your favorite mall, restaurant, office complex or resort might have polished concrete. It is used to provide high friction surface treatment.

The concrete polishing turns the cement slab into a beautiful modern floor. They are becoming increasingly popular with architects, designers and builders. They come in a wide variety of colors, styles and designs.
These floors are also very durable and easy to maintain. Unlike wood, carpet or tile, there are no edges or fibers to collect dirt or bacteria. Hence, they are a smart choice for hospitals, kitchens, kindergartens and other spaces where cleanliness is key.
Polished concrete is also a smart and safe choice. Garages, warehouses and industrial plants assess pore-free surfaces in such a way that moisture and chemicals do not remain on the floor surface. They have a non-slip surface and are an environmentally-friendly choice. This glossy surface also enhances interior lighting. They reflect light and complement existing light, which often reduces energy costs
