Although it is a well known fact that concrete is one of the most durable flooring options available, it is no secret that even concrete can sustain damage. Salt over time has the ability to start eating away at the concrete and this will cause the concrete to deteriorate and eventually cause the concrete to break. In a situation like this resurfacing an already damaged floor won’t do any good and other measures will need to be taken. The damage that is usually inflicted by salt is commonly known as “pop outs” and this is very common on concrete flooring near salt water or in regions that tend to need a large amount of salt on the roads to help in clearing the ice or snow.
Concrete protection is recommended to help ensure your flooring will remain in tact for longer.
One of the best options known to help prevent this kind of situation from damaging your concrete is to use a sealant for concrete protection. This sealant acts as a barrier protecting the concrete from salt and moisture as well as combat elements such as algae and fungus growth. Using sealant for concrete protection offers an added benefit that the concrete will still be able to breath with this sealant on and remain protected. Sealants come in many different variations that can be applied by either brushing it on or simply by spraying it on. One option for concrete protection is using penetrating sealant which provides you with a penetrating layer of sealant which as the name indicates penetrates the concrete and creates a strong barrier or liquid sealants which usually sit on top of the concrete protecting it from above like a barrier. Either choice will ensure you get the long term protection that you need for your concrete flooring.
