One thing not mentioned is that often times concrete flooring contractors lay a thin leveling / repair coat of concrete and acid stain that rather than the original slab.

Despite what TV shows depict, most people do not have perfect, virgin slabs underneath their floors just waiting to be uncovered.

The slab in my house was far from being "virgin"... it had some settling cracks, and quite a bit of carpet nail holes. After polishing, some of the defects are still noticeable, but I don't mind it at all... I think it gives character to the house, after all it is the original slab (something like the defects in a old slab terazzo or marble floor).
