Apart from durability and superior structural properties, concrete floors have gained a reputation for being an aesthetically viable option.

Exposing the decorative aggregate is a famous design nowadays. For exposing the aggregate, there are many techniques that we can deploy. It all depends on your design requirements. It also depends on the scale of the project. We generally like to remove the surface mortar but that removal is only as much as one third the diameter of the aggregate particles.
Wash and brush
Washing and brushing are among the traditional methods used for this purpose. The thin layer that covers the aggregate is washed. This is done with the help of scrubbing through a broom. Alternatively, a water jet can be sprayed to remove the surface mortar until the aggregate is revealed up to the desired depth. You should make sure that you have experienced labor doing this job for you. Otherwise, you risk dislodging or overexposing the mortar. The removal process should start as soon as the mortar can be removed. Timing is key in this process. To ensure whether the surface mortar is ready for removal or not, you can try to remove a small portion with the help of a broom.

For interior flooring, polished concrete becomes an ideal choice because it resembles other glossy flooring styles in appearance and comes with the added advantage of enhanced durability. This scheme of flooring is cost efficient and provides extra luminance to a place because of better reflectivity. If you are looking for decorative flooring options in a medical or educational facility, then a decorative concrete flooring is ideal. This is because it is tailored to cater to heavy foot traffic.
Decorative concrete flooring is also an environmentally friendly option. Normal floor coverings often need to be coated with chemicals that emit substances in the air and degrade the indoor air quality. Besides, light-coloured concrete improves thermal reflectivity in the area and helps to maintain modest levels of temperature.
