What is microcement flooring?
Decorative concrete, such as microcement flooring, is obtained by mixing water-based resins with cement, additives, and mineral pigments. Because of its excellent adhesion, microcement flooring can be applied to various horizontal and vertical surfaces.

Price of microcement flooring
Microcement flooring is the most popular and attracts all the attention. The most common use of decorative coatings is indoors, such as in houses, offices, shops, restaurants, and hotels. However, they have also been used on the outdoor floors of buildings, such as outdoor paths, patios, balconies, and more.
This material is becoming more and more common in areas such as terraces and swimming pools. In 2023, there is no doubt that decorative trends will continue to grow.
The reputation of this microcement flooring has been earned mainly due to its unbeatable advantages. The product can withstand pedestrian traffic, abrasion, wear, temperature changes, and a change in its surroundings. Undoubtedly, this last factor has catapulted its use outdoors in the past few years.
In the first place, the size of the room determines the price of the microcement floor. The price per square foot can vary from $14 to $20, depending on the project’s complexity. The amount of material is higher for a large surface area with comparable labor so the cost will be lower.
It is estimated that this type of paving will take at least one week from the time of installation to the time of use. This is because it needs to dry and be appropriately sealed to provide the finest possible performance.
As a result of this speed of application, microcement floors offer a more competitive price when compared to other alternatives such as polished cement or parquet floors.
how to clean microcement floor?
Cleaning microcement is easy – you only need water and neutral soap to do the job. Even though microcement is a durable material that is relatively resistant to chemicals, it is recommended to clean it with neutral soap instead of an aggressive or descaling product.
A typical example of a product that can damage the protective film is chlorine, bleach, ammonia, soaps, and detergents – if possible, try to stay away from them. The benefits of microcement flooring are similar to parquet, and the maintenance needed is identical.
A good rule of thumb is to always keep the surface dry as a first step, as this will prevent permanent waterlogging or prolonged contact with humidity. For example, don’t leave wet towels on the floor or hot pots that leak liquid on a benchtop if you don’t want them to get wet.
Keeping the surface of the flooring free of grit, which can scratch the coating when stepped on, is also essential, as well as not bumping into complex objects on the floor.
