The Concrete Grinding Process
Grinding is the first step in concrete polishing, a method of concrete floor resurfacing that is highly beneficial and strengthens the concrete surface. Find out more about concrete polishing here.
Grinding concrete is a critical way to ensure the health of a floor, as it strips away imperfections in the flooring and ensures that the remaining concrete is level and ready seal or begin polishing steps. This process is beneficial in large industrial settings, where the floors are constantly trafficked by heavy-weight equipment, or floor tolerances are high; meaning your floor needs to be very level to set certain machinery. 1/8” variation in floor over 10’.

The process removes epoxy, paint, carpet glue and other mastics from a concrete surface. The weight of the grinders coupled with artificial diamonds is the key to prepping the surface to receive sealers or begin polishing.
The depth of aggregate exposure depends on the look the customer wants, and often the condition of the floor.
Benefits of Concrete Grinding

Concrete grinding is an essential first step in the concrete polishing process. The grinding gets the concrete surface ready for polishing as it smooths and levels the entire area.

How Does Concrete Grinding Make My Workplace Safer?
Safety is an essential factor to consider, especially in an industrial setting. The concrete in a factory or industrial setting undergoes a lot of stress daily, which can eventually jeopardize employee safety. By grinding out joint curls, leveling high spots and ultimately honing the floor to accept sealers, densifiers and stain protectors, your floor will have less dusting, imperfections, and tighter pores. All of which can contribute to safety concerns.
To prevent any accidents or unsafe conditions, concrete professionals usually recommend concrete grinding services.
Concrete grinding services ensure:
- The floor is level.
- Concrete will have less dust and silica, especially when treated with densifying chemicals.
- Concrete is smooth and ready to hone or polish.
- Reduces down time and increases production when grinding out Joint Curls, which impacts forklift operators as they slow down to reduce impact on their bodies and lifts when traversing a bad joint curl.
Concrete experts can guarantee the safety of a client’s team by providing them with comprehensive grinding services. Grinding the floors of any workspace ensures that workers stay safe while the floor continues to remain durable for years to come.
