5 Reasons for a Garage Floor Epoxy Coating – Mesa, AZ

Garage Chip Floor

It seems like everyone is doing it…. Installing a coating on their garage floor. Some coatings are a solid color, some have color paint chips in them, some are metallic, others look like granite and some, why they are not even Epoxy. So, why should YOU have a coating applied in your garage? Here are just a couple reasons:

1) Oil drips: They wipe up with a paper towel! No floor coating is indestructible, but, by using the right materials, they can be pretty forgiving.
2) Cleaner Garage: Your garage will stay cleaner because dirt and dust are not trapped in the surface pores of the concrete floor. A sealed garage floor will be much easier to clean. In the absence of wet spills, you can sweep or use a leaf blower to clean the floor.
3) Cleaner garage means a cleaner house: Less dust and dirt are tracked into the house when the floors are clean in the garage. Enough said….
4) Brighter Garage: Epoxy floor coatings will provide “reflective” light, making the garage appear brighter. The lighter the color the brighter the garage will look. In the absence of good lighting, this is definitely a plus.
5) It looks good! These days we do more than “just park our cars”. Garages act as playrooms for our kids, party rooms and Man Caves!

Floor coatings are not just for garage floors, they are an easy way to “dress up” your patio, driveway, entry and sidewalks. There are a wide variety of coatings available beside the “painted” coatings. Many textures and shapes can be made using a polymer modified cement overlay system. Choices vary from stone, slate and tile to surfaces with texture like found around swimming pools.

Why have a boring concrete floor when there are so many coating options available. Check out our website at www.amazoncoatings.com then give us a call for your free in home estimate: 480-890-1141.

How to Clean your Epoxy Concrete Coating, Mesa AZ

After the first question of “How long before I can walk/drive/park/etc. on my new coating”, the next question is “How do I take care of my new epoxy coating?”

First and foremost, concrete coatings, whether epoxy, polyurethane, polymer modified overlay or stain, DO NOT REPEL DIRT! Sealers and coatings are designed to allow you to clean your floor easier than the bare concrete surface. Concrete is porous, thus it holds the dirt and dust; making hard to clean. By applying a sealed concrete coating, the surface is no longer porous so the dust and dirt are not trapped in the surface.

So again, how do you clean your concrete coating?Hachey Front 2 AFter 2012

Always sweep your floor to keep dirt and dust from building up and being ground into the surface. If the floor is outdoors, you can easily use a leaf blower or garden hose. If indoors, you can always use a broom or dust mop. The surface is easily cleaned with water; by mop or hose. A non-filming cleaner can be used if water alone is not giving the desired results. I like to use vinegar and water as my “go to” cleaner.

These measures will help to extend the life of your concrete coating and keep it looking good!

How to Prepare Concrete Floors for Coatings, Mesa AZ

The success of your concrete floor coating, like all things, starts with proper preparation of the surface. Even the most expensive coating materials will fail if the surface is not prepared correctly.

You must “open the surface pores” of the concrete so that the coating materials can form a tight bond with the surface. The surface must be free of dirt and contaminants as well. While there are various ways to achieve this, many professional concrete coatings applicators and DIYers will use a Chemical Etching Method.

Chemical Etching is an effective preparation technique used on concrete that is “bare” or “un-coated”. The application of an acid based mixture on the concrete will cause “fizzing & bubbling” of the surface. Despite how this looks, this is a good thing! If there is no “reaction” when applying the mixture, this means that the concrete has some type of sealer present that the etching solution can not penetrate. Other means will be necessary to correctly prepare the surface.

After you have “etched” the surface, it must now be “neutralized”. This can be completed by applying a mild ammonia and water solution. Some individuals use baking soda to neutralize the acid mixture. In both cases, the idea is to stop the action of the acid.

Finally, the surface must be rinsed thoroughly! No traces of the etching or neutralizing solution can remain. It is best to rinse the surface a couple of times to make sure all traces of dirt and contaminants are removed. If in doubt, rinse again!

Your concrete floor preparation is now complete! What type of coating do you want to apply? Epoxy, Polyurethane or maybe a Flagstone Coating?
