Sealing a concrete floor is an important step in protecting the quality of your concrete, regardless of whether it is an indoor area or one that is exposed to the elements outside. An industrial warehouse floor that endures a lot of heavy traffic and is exposed to various types of debris and abrasions is especially vulnerable to damage. Although concrete is known for its durability and strength, it is a porous material that requires a degree of prevention and ongoing care to preserve its integrity and keep it looking and performing its best for years to come. Even absorbing water can lead to structural problems and change its appearance.
While the minute dust particles that are a threat to wood floors are not typically a concern with those made of concrete, larger debris, along with oil, grease and other liquids can lead to serious problems if left over time. Without the appropriate sealer, water, oil and grease can penetrate the surface of the concrete. Which may which result in efflorescence or compromising the structural integrity of the concrete. In addition, the sealant will protect the concrete against abrasion from normal activity in your warehouse. Sealing a concrete floor will give it longer life and a better appearance that requires less maintenance than untreated concrete floors.
At Kat Klean, we have the expertise to choose between a penetrating sealer or hardener that will be best at protecting your concrete warehouse floor. Siliconate polymers are the sealants of choice. Siliconate polymers penetrate concrete surfaces helping to densify the concrete and to seal the floor providing an increase in abrasion resistance and reduction in the surface absorption of liquids. Hardeners willonly denisfy the concrete. Each warehouse is different in the equipment it uses and the products that are stored and distributed throughout. Depending on the types of risk to your concrete floor, the right type of sealer will vary.
