Before undergoing the refinishing process, you will need to clean and fix any defects in your current concrete flooring system. We often recommend that you power wash the surface to remove any loose and flaky concrete as well as debris and various other items. Make sure that you are thoroughly cleaning the surface and removing any fragments of concrete. You need to do this because you want to ensure that the refinishing material properly adheres to the concrete. Also, when using soap to clean the floor, make sure you wash off all the soap before applying a new finish to your floor.
Once we complete all the preparations, we then apply the refinishing material to the concrete surface. This is typically done by pouring it over the area and spreading it out evenly which will establish a smooth and seamless surface once the material cures. The new surface, however, might be slippery when it becomes wet. You can avoid this hazard altogether by including an anti-slip additive in the epoxy mixture before refinishing your concrete floor. You can also enhance the appearance of your floor with different decorative options.
