    Hello everyone,

    I'm reaching out for some expert advice regarding a unique issue with our new home's polished concrete floor. The floor has distinct black color, but there are visible swirls on the surface that are about 1 mm thick. I'm not sure what they are - possibly from a densifier or a top coat?

    I'm considering sanding down these swirls and restoring the shine by progressively using diamond resin pads of increasing grit levels. However, I'm concerned about potentially altering the floor's original black color in the areas where the swirls are removed.

    Has anyone here dealt with a similar issue? I would greatly appreciate any insights or suggestions on how to proceed without compromising the floor's color and finish. See the attach images of the swirls for a clearer understanding.

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Looks like whoever ground it has left these in.
