- Before applying a sealer, make sure that you will properly prepare your garage floor. This will ensure that the sealer will bond properly on your floor.
- Check the temperature around your garage. If the temperature is below 50o F, reschedule the project to another time.
- Free your garage floor from any dirt or debris before applying your preferred garage floor sealer.
- Wash your garage floor with a pressure washer or garden hose.To thoroughly clean your floor, use etchant or the recommended type of acid for your garage floor along with a stiff brush. Make sure to use safety mask, gloves and proper boots because etchant can be harmful although it is effective in removing stains, grease and oil. Also, there has to be proper ventilation when using etchant.
- When your garage floor is clean and dry, you can start with the sealant application.
Tips for effective garage floor sealant application
- Stick a painter’s tape to prevent applying sealer on your walls.
- Start your sealant application from the farthest corner of your garage floor like you would with a paint. Work your way from the far end up to the garage entrance.
- Apply a lavish amount of garage floor sealer and let it dry longer than the recommended time. If the recommended time is 24 hours, leave your garage floor for 36 hours before using it. This will provide ample time for the sealer to bond properly to the concrete garage floor.
