Thanks for the feedback guys. Had the same feeling as you three but wanted to throw it out there just in case there was something new I was not aware of yet.=

NO NO NO DO NOT Grind it..you will ruin it..There is not a lot you can do other than to maybe put a coating on it that is non slippery.

I dont think grinding saltillo would work too well, Not to mention restaurant guys always seem to look for cheapest way. Why not clean and strip if needed then look into the coatings at richard james that you could make slip resistant.

A restaurant owner with a saltillo floor that is constantly slippery asked me if there was a way to clean it and flatten it in order to make it easier for them to keep clean.
I know that saltillo is mud, really, with a glaze but don't know if grinding it flat would be feasible and afterwards apply the coatings needed to protect it along with some abrasive or coarse shark grit type material to give the floor some traction.
Any thoughts or suggestions? Please share any feedback.
