Dingy Garage Floors
We do a lot of messy things in the garage. From working on the car to DIY projects and arts and crafts with the kids, there's bound to be some stains and debris. The fact is, your garage is still part of your home. You wouldn't want to leave your kitchen floor a mess after spilling food or drinks. Keeping your garage floors looking clean and new can add value to your home. Even if you aren't worried about selling, it's still a chore you can benefit from. Luckily, cleaning your concrete garage floor is a breeze. It only takes a few steps.
First, you want to use a push broom to sweep up dirt, dust, and other debris. Then, pour dry dish detergent or a concrete cleaning solution onto any stains and let it sit for 45 minutes. Once the detergent or solution has sat, pour boiling water onto the areas. Then, use the broom to scrub the stain until it disappears. Following these steps will make your garage just like new again.
Garage Floor Options
From granite garage floors to vinyl flooring, there are many options to choose from for your garage. Here are some of the top options that are sightly and easy to keep clean. Epoxy garage floors are becoming more and more popular. They're durable, practically stain-resistant, and widely customizable. Getting epoxy floors will require you to get your concrete floors repaired beforehand so the epoxy cures properly. Cracks or dents in the concrete can cause bubbling to form during the curing process.
Once cured, though, you'll have durable garage floors that look fresh. Another great option for garage floors is rubber tile flooring. These tiles are easy to install by yourself and even easier to clean. The rubber tiles interlock for easy installation and added durability. They can be installed on top of any type of garage floor. They can withstand the most extreme weather conditions. The best part about them is being able to pick them up for easy cleaning. The last option is to paint your concrete garage floor with concrete garage floor coating paint. This paint is easy to apply and inexpensive. It's easier to clean than the concrete itself. It also allows you to customize in any color you'd like.
