Cleaning is Essential!!!
We cannot overlook the importance of proper maintenance of polished concrete floors. This area of service must be more thoroughly addressed. Insurance carrier CNA has published a report that points to contamination on floors as a major contributor to slips, trips and falls. A study by the U.S. government showed a contaminated (DIRTY) floor to be 17 times more likely than a clean floor to cause a slip-fall accident. Even a properly prepared surface (not slippery when wet) will become contaminated and slippery when inadequately maintained. However, when polished concrete is properly polished, properly tested for COF, and properly maintained, it just might be the safest floor yet!
