Concrete is a type of flooring that is made up primarily of cement. Concrete is commonly used as a a floor for driveways, patios and garages. However, concrete can also be used as flooring inside of homes, usually stained, stamped or sealed to add a unique element. Concrete can either be smooth or textured, depending on how it was laid. Rough, textured concrete floors should be cleaned as needed.
