Do Con­crete Floors Require Maintenance?

Con­crete may be tough and ver­sa­tile, but, like any sur­face, it isn’t com­plete­ly main­te­­nance-free. Ensur­ing mois­ture lev­els remain low and that floor coat­ings are updat­ed is essen­tial to the longevi­ty of your floor­ing. To main­tain a sus­tain­able build­ing with lim­it­ed mois­ture issues, fol­low these steps:

5 Ways to Care for Your Concrete

  • Seal or pol­ish — You can learn more about the seal­ing and pol­ish­ing process­es here, as well as read an in-depth dis­cus­sion in our past arti­cle, enti­tled: Should Con­crete Seal­ing Be a Part of Your Floor Main­te­nance Rou­tine? In short, these tech­niques help to pro­tect your floor and cre­ate a more durable finish.
  • Pro­tect the sur­face — When­ev­er you can, put down rub­ber mats in high-traf­fic areas. This adds both extra trac­tion for pedes­tri­ans and a lay­er of pro­tec­tion for your floors.
  • Appro­pri­ate clean­ers - Use only suit­able, gen­tle clean­ers on your con­crete. A floor­ing expert near you can help with select­ing the ide­al prod­uct for your spe­cif­ic needs.
  • Clean stains and spills imme­di­ate­ly — Con­crete does have a porous sur­face, so clean­ing mess­es right away will help to elim­i­nate the risk of stains and damage.
  • Reg­u­lar main­te­nance - Find a floor­ing pro­fes­sion­al that you trust, then invest in reg­u­lar inspec­tions, repairs, and care. Iden­ti­fy­ing and elim­i­nat­ing issues before they have a chance to grow is huge­ly worthwhile.
