3 Reasons to Seal Your Concrete Floor, Windham, Connecticut

If you’ve just had a concrete garage or basement floor poured, you might be tempted to skip the sealant. However, adding a sealant to your concrete floor protects it, and here are a few reasons why. 

Why You Should Seal Your Concrete Floor

1. Oil Spills and Grease concrete

Concrete is a very porous surface, and basements and garages aren’t known for being clean. It’s where you keep dangerous chemicals, solvents, car oil, and other products that could stain and eat away at your floor. Sealing the concrete makes it harder for these corrosive chemicals to penetrate the surface, saving your floor from discoloration, stains, and deterioration.

2. Moisture and Mold

Sealing also helps ward off moisture, either from weather or condensation. It also protects your concrete from mold and mildew. This prevents stains and cracking and also protects your garage and basement from that terrible mildew smell. 

3. Life Expectancy and Look

The typical concrete floor lasts for an average of 25-30 years. If the concrete isn’t sealed, it will have a much shorter life span. In addition to protection against spills and weather, your floor will stay prettier longer, with less cracking and staining. Since sealant coats only last so long, it’s important to reapply the sealant every few years.
