Commercial concrete maintenance
Business owners spend a large portion of their monthly budget on repairs and maintenance of their premises. These monthly costs can add up and become costly. Concrete is a relatively easy and maintenance-free material. Cleaning with gentle chemicals and water will ensure that it is kept clean, ensure that the floors are dried thoroughly once the cleaning has taken place, as concrete is a porous material and can absorb water. Once your concrete flooring has been installed, a sealant should be added to the floor to protect it from scratches and stains. We recommend that you strip the floor once or twice per year and add a new layer of protection to keep a clean professional look.
Commercial concrete floor sealant and why it matters
Commercial flooring is more prone to scuffs and scrapes. It is vital to provide them with as much protection as possible. Sealant is added to concrete flooring to keep the floor in the best shape possible. To add a sealant, the surface will need to be prepared correctly to ensure that the floor is protected. all dust and dirt will need to be cleaned as well as any oil or grease be stripped. A clean floor will enable the sealant to correctly bond with the concrete to provide maximum protection.
Concrete flooring and structures will last a lifetime as long as they are professionally built and installed and the correct maintenance plan has taken place. The waterproofing with sealant has a lifespan of 10 years and provided there are no cracks should not need to be replaced. Once cracks or damages have taken place it is vital to get this repaired as soon as possible to avoid permanent damage.
