Concrete isn’t just about boring foundation slabs anymore. With growing technology and knowledge, we can create all kinds of designs to suit your home. People often opt for polished concrete floors as a marble or granite lookalike to bring give their house a contemporary look. It also absorbs and retains heat well and stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter so there is no discomfort whatever the weather. This means it’s a great flooring option, especially when combined with underfloor heating.
Polished concrete is also extremely hygienic, easy to clean, and this is of crucial importance right at the moment with COVID-19. It can be totally sanitised quickly and safely using 70% methylated spirits and 30% water mix. It’s also very low maintenance. This is because it’s hardened further during the steps of polishing so even in residential settings, as a kitchen benchtop it’s incredibly difficult to scratch. Dust, moulds, pollens, fibres and just plain old grime can’t be caught in any indents or tiny texture holes and can’t soak into the concrete. It’s also stain-resistant, so all it takes to clean is either simple hot water on it’s own, or with a bit of pH balanced cleaning solution with water, available from just about any store. This is especially good to use in the kitchen for flooring or benchtops where surfaces tend to get dirty quickly and need regular cleaning.
Because concrete floor is durable and long-lasting, it can even bring the price of your house up when you come to sell it. Potential buyers like to know that they won’t have to pay out a lot of money to have things fixed or refitted, so they’re happier to pay more if they know it’s going to last. Just like with a new kitchen or bathroom would, having durable flooring which won’t need replacing for very many years to come is a huge selling point. If you use a pH balanced cleaner, and refrain from using cleaners such as bleach or citric acids, your concrete floor will last for decades, simply having a refresh buff when some areas lose a bit of shine due to years of foot traffic. Imagine having the original concrete floor still looking good in 50 years?
You often find concrete flooring in warehouses, but then find when you come to clean it that clouds of dust swirl up. This is because it is ‘dusting’, which means fine dust is continually forming off the surface of the plain concrete and leaving a fine film over everything. This builds up on a daily basis and can be quite heavy.
A simple and economical industrial/commercial Polished concrete process can fix that problem as it hardens the concrete itself, and totally seals the concrete yet no sealer is left on the surface, the sealer is formulated to penetrate the concrete up to 20mm. All dust is only from the environment, extremely easy to just sweep into piles, or even just mop up. This means that it’s not only great for warehouses, but other aspects of your business too. Especially as it can be poured in different colours and patterns brought out by the grinding and polishing process.
Just like it retains heat from the sun, it’s able to reflect light too. This brightens up the room, helping you save money on your energy bills by needing less artificial lighting. This is especially important in a time where looking after the environment is an important subject around the world. You can help do your bit with concrete flooring.

SINCE 1998, WE HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE MOST TRUSTED PROVIDERS IN MELBOURNE FOR OUR EXCELLENT-QUALITY CONCRETE POLISHING SERVICES. AT GRIND AND SEAL, OUR EXPERTISE AND CARE SETS US APART.
We first used Grind and Seal at our Braeside premises in May 2018 to prepare our concrete floor into a beautiful shiny area for some vintage cars. The area was approximately 230 square metres and the finish was even better than we had expected. Therefore when it came to expanding the area by another 123 square metres in 2019 we had no hesitation in heading straight back to Grind and Seal. Once again Jay weaved his magic ably assisted by Tom to produce another impeccable finish. We would have no hesitation in recommending Grind and Seal to any potential customer. Thank you to everyone at Grind and Seal.
Anyone who hasn't seen polished concrete before should definitely try it! It looks amazing and is so easy to clean - I totally love it. I got Grind And Seal to come and do my home and they were awesome - lovely guys and were really good at explaining stuff to me. Price was really reasonable and now all my friends are jealous of my floors! - Thanks Grind & Seal I will be recommending you to everyone although my floor really speaks for itself.
Good service, Happy to recommend Grind & Seal. Our floors look a million bucks and came up just so well. Was a difficult job but their experience really showed and they got around all hurdles. We were so impressed. And as our cheapest quote by far we were happy that we got such a good job. Nice team and made the whole process so very easy.
We got Grind & Seal to do the polished concrete in our home. They were incredibly professional and friendly to deal with during the process and the floor looks amazing – they were not the cheapest, but I think you get what you pay for – and we got top quality for a competitive price. Will definitely be recommending their services.

Grind and Seal did a terrific job at our property, we knew in advance of building our new home that we were going to have polished concrete downstairs, therefore we contacted Grind and Seal to speak to them about our job and they liaised with our builder/concretor to ensure that we had a concrete slab with the perfect specifications for what were after!When it came time to complete the work the guys were punctual, friendly and very professional. The place looks fantastic and they were only too happy to appease my wife's needs to inspect the job at every step ...
Thanks for our beautiful floors Tim!
We love them!!
Exactly what I pictured in my head..if not better!!
Our idea to have a “garden party” theme for Christmas last year sounded great but our old mouldy concrete was an eyesore! Within 2 days the grind and seal team transformed our very drab rear and front yard into magnificent useable entertaining areas with minimal disruption to our lives. We have now decided on polished concrete for our extension to merge the indoor/outdoor living areas. The Grind and Seal Polished Concrete team worked hard to deliver a great result, they provided a quality product in a timely fashion, they are honest & reliable – a refreshing change in this day ...
