Polished concrete is a great option to increase the value of any property by creating a stronger, better-looking piece of concrete. In this blog, we’ll discuss a hot topic: is polished concrete slippery when wet? Read on to learn more.

About Polished Concrete 

Polished concrete is an affordable solution to increase the lifespan and look of your problematic concrete floors. As opposed to unfinished concrete, polished concrete can withstand a lot more chemicals, pressure, and traffic, which can all result in cracking and chipping in your floors over time. Polished concrete is accomplished by an industrial polishing machine that grinds and smooths the surface of your floor into a beautiful flat and reflective surface. Compared to many other concrete solutions, this can transform your concrete and make it look brand new.

Is It Slippery When Wet?

The short of the answer to this question is they can be a bit slippery when wet, however, polished cement increases the traction provided when wet. That being said, any standing water on nearly any surface will be potentially slippery when a good deal of standing water is present. There are, however, ways to increase your polished concrete floors’ slip resistance. Some of these ways include cleaning up spills immediately, using an anti-slip conditioner, or placing rugs or mats over high-traffic areas to ensure minimal slippage is possible. Always ensure you keep your floors clean, as dirty floors can contribute to potential slips and other dangers.
