How to Tell if Your Concrete Floor Sealer is Doing its Job  

Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies rely on a clean work space. Ensur­ing that your work envi­ron­ment remains clean almost always starts with the foun­da­tion of your com­pa­ny’s build­ing – its floor­ing. For this rea­son, it’s impor­tant to know the signs of dys­func­tion­al con­crete floor­ing so that you can ensure that your phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­ny keeps run­ning smooth­ly. It’s also impor­tant to remem­ber that no indus­tri­al floor­ing sys­tem lasts for­ev­er and will need to be main­tained and occa­sion­al­ly replaced due to dai­ly wear and tear.

If you find your­self won­der­ing if your floor­ing is doing its job, read on for some indi­ca­tions of health and some signs of failure.

Signs of Healthy Concrete

Basi­cal­ly, if your con­crete coat­ing looks like it did when it was first installed, odds are it is still doing its job. To increase the life of your com­mer­cial floor­ing, check to make sure that your main­te­nance crew is car­ing for it accord­ing to pro­fes­sion­al rec­om­men­da­tions. If you’re not sure how to best care for your con­crete floor seal­er, our facil­i­ty main­te­nance team can show you how. We are pas­sion­ate about devel­op­ing healthy rela­tion­ships with our clients through pre­ven­ta­tive main­te­nance solu­tions. The more proac­tive you are with your con­crete care, the bet­ter your result will be.

Indi­ca­tions of Floor­ing Failure

On the oth­er hand, floor­ing fail­ure is the oppo­site of healthy con­crete. If your con­crete floor seal­er is fail­ing you will notice cracks, bub­bling, pin­hol­ing, and stains. While this could be an indi­ca­tion of sealant fail­ure, the issues may also lie with­in your con­crete slab. If the mois­ture in your con­crete isn’t bal­anced, it can become trapped beneath your seal­er, caus­ing it to fail. The indus­tri­al floor­ing con­trac­tors at Kaloutas’s indus­tri­al floor­ing divi­sion can check the mois­ture lev­els in your slab and install a con­crete mois­ture bar­ri­er and expert mois­ture mit­i­ga­tion tech­niques to get your floor­ing to a place of health and stability.
