If you were with us the last time that we talked about decorative concrete, then you know what it takes to properly maintain it, including the application of a professional protective seal.
And if you’re relatively new to stained concrete being in your home, and you want to enjoy for as long as possible, then it’s imperative that you do what you can to preserve its lifespan. Yes, yes, concrete is durable (that may be a part of what sold you on it in the first place), but that doesn’t mean its indestructible.
Even the strongest surfaces have their weak points, and we’re focused on protecting them as best as we can. Sealing is a great place to start. Why? Let’s look:
SEALS ACT AS A BARRIER TO MOISTURE.
When concrete is exposed to moisture for an extended period of time without being dried up, this moisture can seep into the pores of the concrete and eventually create mold and mildew. The result? An unsightly green discoloration that is even harder to remove than the original moisture itself.
SEALS PROTECT CONCRETE FROM OTHER DAMAGING ELEMENTS.
A professionally-applied seal doesn’t just stop with water. In fact, seals also protect from grease, oils, and any other foreign substance that can leave a lasting mark on your concrete.
SEALS EXTEND THE LIFESPAN OF YOUR CONCRETE.
The first two reasons are two of the most important, but this one is really the heart of the whole issue. By giving your stained concrete surfaces what they need to last, you’ll be able to enjoy them for as long as possible. These surfaces are valuable assets that make hosting family and friends even more enjoyable, but they will only be as valuable as your effort put into maintaining them.
