Are polished concrete floors slippery? It’s one of the most common questions we get because polished concrete looks wet. While polished concrete floors may look like they’re slippery because of their exquisite shine and beauty, they’re really no more slippery than some of the more popular stores you already shop at.
Don’t get me wrong, when a polished concrete floor is soaked with water, there’s always a chance you’re going to slip. That’s probably true with just about any type of floor.
When we polish the concrete in your home, warehouse or retail space, we have the option of placing a slip-resistant material in the final coat. This slip-resistant material is clear and cannot be seen to the naked eye. It is, however, an added expense that’s not going to add much slip resistance to your newly polished concrete floor.
So, are polished concrete floors slippery? Any hard surfaced floor can be slippery when it gets wet, so we always advise letting people know when there’s a potential hazard on your floor such as water or oil. No matter if it’s a polished concrete floor, stained concrete floor, tile floor or an epoxy floor, there’s always a chance of it being slippery when there’s standing water, so the best solution is to make sure your floor is free of water.
In most cases, the garage floor in your home is going to me slippery than regular polished concrete.
