Benefits Of Professionally Done
Concrete Floor Sealing
If you have an unfinished concrete floor you should be seriously considering having it professionally sealed.
If you have an unfinished hard surface or concrete floor - whether it's in your kitchen, your living area, your
workshop, garage or even your outdoor patio and around the pool - you should be seriously considering having it
professionally sealed. The benefits to sealing concrete floors include a healthier and cleaner environment; reduced
lighting needs; an amazingly improved appearance, a significantly lengthened lifespan of your concrete and
significant value-added to your home or building.
Concrete sealing is needed for projects that require concrete floors that are dense and impenetrable. Sealing the
surface prevents water and moisture to seeping into the porous concrete. Sealing concrete also prevents water and
dirt from getting into the concrete that cause dirty discolorations and build-up of molds and mildew. Unsealed hard
surfaces in any home will eventually create a musty and stale odor which can penetrate the whole house. Aside from
this, water absorbed into concrete will expand when it freezes causing the concrete to crack and crumble under the
pressure. Your smooth-looking concrete surface will now look pockmarked and cracked.
Because concrete tends to be used around areas of buildings where there is continuous heavy traffic, such as garage
flooring, porches, driveways, patios, swimming pools, warehouse floors, car-parks, sidewalks and stairways,
concrete sealing will protect the floors and prevent damage. Although, concrete may provide a heavy-duty and
durable surface, due to its porous nature it also readily absorbs all sorts of spills. Any number of chemicals and
spills can mark the surface of the concrete and make it look old and dirty. In areas of heavy traffic where
concrete flooring is used, abrasion, pockmarking and cracking is also extremely common. It's astonishing just how
much value is lost off a property by unprotected hard surface damage. Hence, there is a need to professionally seal
the concrete floor. Concrete sealing provides a barrier against all of the above as well as the absorption of
damaging chemical spills such as oil, brake fluid, salt water, and staining liquids such as coffee, juices and wine
in both outdoor and indoor living and dining areas.
Additionally, concrete sealing adds an aesthetic value to your unpolished concrete. There is no need to paint, add
carpet or wooden floors to change the beauty of your floors. Even after brushing or heavy polishing, concrete will
not look as good as having a professionally done concrete sealing. Not only will blemishes be hidden, sealing will
add character to the finished floor. The gloss added to your floors will highlight the quality and authenticity of
your concrete floors. Because of the gloss produced, light will reflect on your floors thus reducing the need for
many lights. It can reduce your utility bills! Luster and shine will also add that modern and urban look to your
