Now, let’s look at other options. 

Concrete polishing is a process that involves grinding and smoothing your concrete floor with special machines and tools. This removes any imperfections and reveals the natural beauty of the concrete. Concrete polishing also makes your floor reflective and easier to clean.

Concrete grinding is similar to concrete polishing, but it’s more aggressive and removes more material from the surface. Concrete grinding is usually done before applying epoxy or other coatings, to create a smooth and even base. Concrete grinding can also be used to level uneven floors or remove old coatings.
