For several years, we have been expertly removing scratches as well as imperfections from our clients’ floors. We use highly-advanced diamond grinding equipment to deliver exceptional results. First, we are going to help our clients assess the proper aggregate levels of the slab for their concrete. Next, we make sure that our process includes 100% attention to details in terms of applying aggregate levels of slab according to our client’s satisfaction, and doing the final grinding to leave off the floor in its smoothest state.
Here at Absolutely Flawless Floorz, our ultimate aim is to make your floors look spectacular again! Expect a hassle-free transaction if you avail our concrete grinding services. This means that from the initial assessment all the way to the final process, your involvement as our client will be greatly valued especially in deciding on the amount of materials and elements needed for the grinding process such as aggregate levels and hardeners.
This is a process of using an abrasive tool such as diamond-impregnated discs to smoothen rough surfaces. Such a process is best known to remove inconsistencies and imperfections. Grinding is important especially if you need a much smoother result after applying any alternative flooring choices.
The grinding costs from $21.50 to $43.00 per square metre. This only serves as a guide for Melbourne-based projects, and you should ask for the exact amount from your contractor. The factors that affect the cost depend on the floor size, complexity of design, floor condition, and above-grade installation.
Different factors affect how long the project gets to be finished. This includes the size of the property, the degree of gloss or shine, the stone area to be exposed, the type of system to be used, and the area that requires intricate details. It takes approximately two to three days to grind a standard garage. Moreover, it takes around five to six days to grind a 100-square metre house.

The grinding helps mend old and damaged floors to revert to their original state. Grinding eliminates defects, inconsistencies, irregularities, and smoothens the floor.
The grinder rubs the floor’s top layer and removes dirt, epoxies, old paint, and other remnants.
Your floor gets additional protection as the surface becomes rigid and hard.
This process doesn't require toxic adhesives, cleaners, or coatings.
The grinding only uses non-hazardous chemical coatings, adhesives, or cleaners in maintaining the floors. This makes it an eco-friendly solution.
The grinding offers a classy aesthetic similar to granite or marble as it brings out the concrete’s natural beauty. This look can be preserved through the year with zero to low maintenance.
The economies of scale dictate that the larger the floor size, the less you will pay. A small floor project, which is less than 5,000 square metres, will require a higher payment per square metre.
Intricate projects entail a higher cost because an installer would invest more time in the job. One of these saw cutting, stencilling, and installing metal divider strips.
Grinding a floor that requires special preparation increases the cost per square metre. An example of this will be if the floor has numerous patches. Smoother floors do not cost as much as crack repairs, which can incur an additional $43 per square metre.
If you need to install a waterproof layer, a concrete overlay, and finish before applying a sealing coat, you will pay for additional costs.
The dry and wet methods are used to grind down the floor. Water is needed to cool the diamond grits and clean the formed dust in the wet method. Water lubricates, reduces friction, and increases the longevity of grinding equipment, such as the disks, which can melt because of high temperature. The dry method uses a tool that retains dust within a cover to have a clean area. The best way is to combine both the dry and wet methods. Dry grinding can be used initially and finished off with wet grinding.
There are different grinding methods and protect them from airborne silica dust. These methods involve wet cutting and HEPA vacuum and exhaust ventilation systems. These systems help in reducing dust accumulation.
This method removes silica dust from becoming airborne and tops the scale in the best dust control methods in cutting. A wet-cutting port or a portable water tank or cart should be attached to saws and grinding equipment. This method is also known as water spraying.
HEPA Vacuum and Exhaust Ventilation Systems
Industrial vacuums and exhaust ventilation systems should be used when it is impossible to remove dust at the source. These systems suck dust the moment it forms and is helpful during clean-up of the job site. These vacuum systems should be attached with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter that does not allow the escape of collected dust from the system.
There are different steps when it comes to cleaning:
You need to wear a dust respirator. It is unsafe for you to inhale dust particles; thus, you need to protect yourself by wearing a dust respirator.
Use a broom or brush to remove dust from the surface. Use a damp towel to get rid of the dust on the wall or on the surface. You can use a vacuum cleaner if there is a very large area.
Prepare the right proportions of the dust detergent. It is recommended to wear gloves. Wash the whole area by section using the mop with the detergent.
Prepare a mix of water and detergent and put into a sprayer and spray around the area.
