Polished floors require regular maintenance, but DIFFERENT maintenance than a coated or uncoated concrete floor. The good news is that polished floors can be given that 'just polished look' with periodic burnishing which can be done very quickly, vs recoating, and without any dry time associated with the burnish. Once the burnishing is done, you can have your floor back immediately.
