Polished concrete floors offer the most environmentally friendly commercial flooring solution available. On average, there’s 96% less waste over the life of a polished concrete floor than a carpet or VCT floor. Polished concrete doesn’t require waxing and stripping like vinyl tile floors, and doesn’t provide a growth environment for mold and allergens like carpet does. Polished concrete maintenance uses only mild soap, eliminating harsh chemicals and costly maintenance programs.
At Craftsman Concrete we use polishing products that are environmentally responsible, and exceed federal, state and local rules and regulations. This means products that are free from volatile organic compounds—chemicals that are linked to harmful respiratory and immune effects, as well as negative environmental consequences. Our polishing products provide LEED U.S. Green Building Council credits, contributing to LEED certification of new construction. For more information, see our environmental pledge.
