Professional Concrete Floor Sealing
Concrete floor sealing is a fast, affordable floor coating solution to protect concrete floors and walls from moisture. Concrete floor sealer provides a level of protection against stains and marks, reducing wear and tear on surfaces.
Sealing concrete floor improves its strength, gives it greater longevity, makes it easier to clean and enhances its appearance. A professional sealant for your concrete floors also prevents moisture seepage, an essential step if you are considering installing another protective or decorative coating on top of your concrete. Concrete floor sealing can also help prevent efflorescence, a mineral deposit on porous surfaces.
How is concrete floor sealing done?
Concrete floor sealing generally involves applying a single pack compound over a clean concrete floor surface. There are many types of sealants available and we will assess your flooring and advise you on the best choice for your situation.
Penetrating Sealants and Hardeners
Penetrating sealers absorb into the concrete to prevent moisture seepage while allowing evaporation of internal moisture. A chemical reaction between the sealer and the concrete strengthens and hardens the floor. Using a penetrating sealer improves impact resistance and provides extra protection against stands and marks.
Floor Sealing Additives
Antimicrobial products can be added to concrete floor sealants to resist mould, bacteria and moss on surfaces. This is a solid investment because, apart from health concerns, if moss and mould are allowed to grow unchecked on porous surfaces, they can affect their structure over time and cause deterioration. Colours and tints can also be added to sealers for line markings, safety zones or decorative purposes.
Topical sealants sit on the surface of your concrete to provide an additional level of protection. Acrylic sealants are one of the most inexpensive surface sealants and provide protection against dirt and UV light. Epoxy coatings and polyurethane resin coatings can also be applied to the surface of concrete to give a durable, attractive appearance.
