What to Look for in a Grinder for Concrete

Concrete floors are an excellent choice for their durability and uniformity, but they are subject to wear and tear like all surfaces. In an industrial setting, these floors might need a little more than a daily cleaning after years of use. Enter the concrete grinder!

Among the conditions afflicting concrete floors, Building Service Contractors (BSCs) might come up against things like:

  • Uneven, chipped, or worn clear coats, paint, or epoxy sealing
  • Glue or other adhesives left over from the application of tile or other additions
  • Stains from all manner of substances used in day-to-day operations of the space
  • Bumpy or uneven surfaces that need leveling

In all of these cases, a grinder for concrete is the best machine you can use. Using a combination grinder/polisher, your team can make quick work of large concrete areas that would take much more time using a floor scraper or other hand tools.

Where is a Grinder for Concrete Helpful?

A concrete grinder is not just for warehouses or other heavy-use industrial zones. It can be used in several different types of spaces. Take a look at the places where these types of machines can get the job done.

1. Manufacturing

Moving heavy machinery back and forth, in addition to heavy foot traffic, will cause repeated wear on even the toughest floors. Renewing the surface with a concrete grinder can help get things moving swiftly again.

2. Food Facilities

Cleanliness is at the top of the list for food manufacturing facilities. A clean, smooth floor without divots, cracks, or sticky spots to collect unwanted materials will do wonders for productivity and safety.

3. Distribution Centers

When speed is of the utmost importance, a clear, unobstructed floor is paramount. People and vehicles must be able to move products quickly and efficiently without experiencing bumps or hiccups on floor surfaces. This way, deliveries can be made on time.

4. Healthcare

The look of a polished concrete floor denotes professionalism and cleanliness, not to mention that it’s easier to clean! When your customers want to make sure they’re getting the best care, something as simple as a shining office or waiting room floor can do wonders for their confidence.

5. Warehouses

Warehouses are one of the primary users of concrete floors. Their vast spaces need to be free of imperfections and hazards for thousands of square feet. A concrete grinder can help maintain a uniform surface in a fraction of the time traditional methods might take, and harsh chemicals are not required.
