– Seal Before Coating Your Floor –
Do you want to put down a floor coating in your garage or warehouse but there’s moisture problems in the concrete? Have you taped down the plastic bag for a day just to come back to a darker colored concrete under the bag?…. it’s frustrating. Moisture and efflorescence will eventually break the bond of any floor coating making it peel up… and trust me, you definitely don’t want that. But what do you do?
It took me a while to figure this problem out. I was going out to job sites moisture testing day after day… sometimes the moisture would go away after a couple weeks and sometimes the moisture in the slab never went away. I wasted a lot of gas and labor traveling to the places just to leave frustrated. Something had to change. Luckily I found a sealer that solves that problem once and for all. It’s great, you just mop it around for 20 minutes or so and let it soak in. It crystallizes through the concrete permanently waterproofing it. After it’s fully cured within a day or two you can safely apply any floor coating. You just put it down after the floor is prepped, before applying epoxy paints, flake systems, metallic epoxies, polyureas, or any specialty coatings for that matter.
Learn from my mistakes. You have better things to do with your time than be frustrated because the garage floor coating you wanted can’t be applied because of moisture in the concrete. It seems so silly… so invest in Creto Deep Penetrating Sealer now so you can get the floor coating you always wanted.
