Absolutely, yes! Mechanically polished floors (Hiperfloor) are known for the fact that they do not off-gas at all after the first week or so. What’s more, the grind and seal finishes are all tailored to use low VOC products. In case you are unfamiliar with exactly what low VOC means, VOC stands for ‘Volatile organic compounds.’ Basically, VOCs are organic chemicals that vaporise at ordinary room temperature. VOCs have compounding long-term health effects, so having a floor that does not off gas at all after the first week is of huge benefit for good health overall. Especially for anyone who is ill, has a weakened immune system, or suffers from permanent health conditions, including respiratory illnesses, it is really important to avoid VOCs as much as possible. Unfortunately, many other types of floor coverings and coatings can emit VOCs on a continual basis. In fact, disturbingly enough, the EPA has found that concentrations of VOC in indoor air can be 2 to 5 times greater than outdoors—and sometimes far greater than that. In addition to being very negative for health overall, many VOCs are known carcinogens. New buildings containing new paint, new cabinetry and other materials tend to be high in VOC, so having a VOC-free floor is extra important. The less VOC contributors you get exposed to, the better for your health. Fortunately, because polished concrete only off-gases for the first week, it is an ideal choice for those who are looking to avoid VOC exposure as much as possible.
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.
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.
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.

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 ...
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 ...
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.
