Also, stress to your customer the importance of maintaining the floor correctly. Often when a floor is found to be slippery it is due to improper cleaning and maintenance issues.
Even though you may no longer feel responsible for the floor's care after your work is done, you can be sure that if a slip and fall incident occurs your name will come to mind. This being said, work with your customers to establish a proper maintenance program for the floor you installed.
As a contractor you have seen the concrete polishing industry grow into the exciting field it is today. As you have seen the need for insight and knowledge to position your company in this growing field of expertise, it is my hope that you show the same insight when it comes to floor safety on your finished product.
