The floor grinding machine grinds poorly
Problems when grinding concrete floors can be due to many different reasons. If you notice that it is grinding poorly, you can try the following measures:
- Increase the grinding pressure
- Adjust the machine’s speed or direction of rotation to see if it gives better results
- Moisten the surface
- Wet grinding
- Use finer diamond tools
- Sand or concrete dust – use a dust extractor to clean the surface thoroughly after each grinding step.
- Check the floor surface for unevenness or damage that could affect grinding. If so, these need to be addressed before proceeding with grinding.
When the wear is too high, the following can be tried:
- Reduce grinding pressure
- Increase the number of tools
- Select a harder bond diamond tool
- Check that the grinder and diamond tools are working correctly. If any of the tools are broken or need to be adjusted, it can lead to excessive wear and tear on the concrete floor. Adjust the floor grinder or diamond tools to make sure they are working properly.
If nothing works, contact the manufacturer of the floor grinding machine or diamond tools for advice and assistance. Consider hiring a professional contractor experienced in grinding concrete floors if you don’t have the experience or equipment to tackle the problem yourself.
Choosing the right tool based on your concrete floor
Maintenance of your concrete floor
Maintenance is often overlooked in the world of polished concrete. Therefore, we want you to remember that your floor will only perform well if it is continually maintained. The first step of maintenance is to keep the floors clean. A good solution is to use an auto-scrubber to absorb dirt and grit from the surface. In addition, neutral cleaners and even densifiers can be added to the auto-scrubber and used while cleaning the floor. This helps keep the surface clean and shiny and can be incorporated into a daily maintenance routine.
