how to polish concrete yourself

U POLISH IT ™- POLISHED LEVEL 1 SYSTEM

The polished concrete floor level 1 produces a matte sheen polished concrete finish. This system is most often used in warehouse floors, shops, and industrial spaces where the owner needs a floor that is easy to clean and maintain, but is also concerned about durability and costs. This system utilizes diamond floor pads and an impregnating concrete hardener. This combination both cleans and refines the floor as well as internally sealing the concrete to makes it a “harder” surface.

U POLISH IT ™- POLISHED LEVEL 2 SYSTEM

The polished concrete floor level 2 produces a satin sheen polished concrete finish. On brand new, hard troweled concrete floors this floor produces a very clean look and even sheen similar to a Wal-mart or Sam’s club. In fact, this method was modeled after the owner of Concrete Floor Supply’s experience with their flooring program. On old floors, this system brings the floor back to life and This system is very universal system that can be used in many applications where the owner desires a clean looking, low maintenance floor. This system utilizes diamond floor pads and an impregnating concrete hardener.
