Removing Objects From The Concrete Floor Before Installing A New Coating
One of the easiest things that you can do before installing a brand-new polyurea coating is to clear the floor from all objects. There are a couple of reasons why this is a cheap and easy way to expedite the installation process.
The first reason is that it generally helps us install the coating as fast as possible. You would be surprised how many people still have their cars in their garage when we show up to install a polyurea garage floor coating. Normally this is not a problem as we simply ask the homeowner to move the vehicle while we install the coating but sometimes the keys can not be found. Naturally, we can’t install a coating around a car or truck left in the garage. In this scenario, we have to reschedule the installation.
Further, people often keep tools or toys in their garage. These will also have to be moved off the garage floor before we can get to installing the coating. Most objects don’t take that long to move off the garage floor coating but for the heavier items make sure you get some help. Toolboxes and yard equipment might need some extra manpower.
We are in the business of getting you the best garage floor coating in Brevard. This is why we always encourage people to remove all things off the concrete floor before we show up. One of the best values we provide to our clients is an extremely fast installation time. We can have an entire concrete coating installed in less than one day but for that, we need to spend the most amount of time on the floor as possible; moving items off the floor ensures that the installation goes as quickly as possible.
Close the Windows And Allow The Room To Sit Before Installation
Another way in which you can prepare your garage concrete floor is to close all the windows to your garage and allow the humidity level to drop substantially.
Here on the Space Coast of Florida, we have extremely high levels of humidity. People often have either a door or a window in their garage to allow for the ocean breeze to cool down their garage. 99% of the time this is a good idea however when you are having a new garage floor concrete coating installed this is a bad idea.
The reason behind this is because concrete coatings cure faster when there is a low level of humidity in the air. This is because with a low level of humidity, the bonding agents in the concrete coating can work faster and ensure that the coating is installed as quickly as possible.
This is one of the reasons why we always suggest getting the humidity as low as possible in your garage before we show up for the installation process. With our signature polyurea installation techniques we can have the entire concrete floor coated and ready to go in 24 hours. One of the easiest ways you can help us out is by closing doors and windows and allowing the humidity to drop as low as possible.
By dropping the humidity level before the installation you can rest easy knowing that you have helped is in every way possible. We will take it from here and provide you with the best in the industry concrete coating that comes with a 15-year manufacturer warranty.
