The Problems with Commonplace Concrete Flooring

Last updated 5 years ago

Concrete floors remain susceptible to unattractive blotches without a professional epoxy coating. Avoid costly repairs by investigating the weaknesses of untreated concrete.                    

  • Potential Chemical Stains: The porous properties of concrete make unsealed floors more likely to receive permanent damage from accidental spills. Small cracks and openings create accessible routes for staining liquids to reach far beneath the surface of concrete flooring. Lawn control chemicals are likely to rust or eat away at unprotected concrete. Mowing runoff from sprinkler systems or grass carries these staining chemicals directly to your concrete driveway. Environments that experience heavy winters are rife with driveway-damaging chemicals. Salt and ammonia-based chemicals are commonly used on city roads as de-icing solutions. Both chemicals ravage unprotected concrete surfaces with flaking surfaces.
  • Moisture Vulnerability: Regular exposure to moisture threatens permeable concrete. Infiltrating H20 can cause cracks to widen and deteriorate underlay adhesives. Other moisture risks come from exposure to plant life. Seeds are able to take root in concrete chasms given sufficient access to moisture. Many driveway weeds problems begins with moisture-vulnerable unsealed concrete. Microscopic mold spores easily navigate the tiny gorges of porous driveways. Even a small amount of moisture will spur the growth of potentially toxic patches.  
  • Sealant Protection: The right protective treatment significantly reduces these concrete-flooring risks. Epoxy sealants from REDRHINO: The Epoxy Flooring Company offer maximum protection from moisture and corrosive compounds. Compound resin polymers fill porous gaps to prevent liquid access. Concrete sealants also add protection against heat exposure, UV stains, and chipping. Combine these solutions with concrete’s natural durability for a long-lasting floor or driveway. Apply professional sealant annually to maintain high traffic areas. Treat concrete every two to three years to protect areas with limited pedestrian activity.
