Whenever possible, use epoxy products that are low in VOCs or without volatile organic compounds. When mixing and applying epoxy coatings, ensure that installers wear a respiratory mask, gloves, protective clothing, and safety goggles (especially during mixing). When considering placing a polyurea or epoxy coating on your garage floor, you'll want to take the time to research the company that installed it and the process used. A garage floor covering can be a great way to protect your concrete floor, but there are some circumstances where it should be applied with care.
You'll also want to know as much as possible about the products that are used to ensure your family's safety and longevity. Transylvania Concrete Coatings has put together a few things to think about before installing that new floor finish. When used and applied correctly, epoxy floor coverings are exceptionally safe. Epoxy resins are comprised of epoxy resin and a polyamine hardener, just those two components.
At Boston Garage, our team takes appropriate precautions to ensure their own safety when installing epoxy floors. We always wear gloves, eye and face masks and make sure that the area where we work is properly ventilated. Transylvania Concrete Coatings technicians use a moisture meter to determine if the floor is dry enough to apply the coating correctly. It's one of the many reasons homeowners choose to install a coating on the garage floor that covers the crack and makes the space look attractive again.
Garages and other heavy-duty rooms with a concrete coating can be damaged by chemicals, abrasions, and even cracks or chips. During this time, it is important to ventilate the garage or space where the epoxy was applied to the floor. Once the curing process is complete and the epoxy floor coating is dry, it's 100% safe for commercial and industrial floors. We also offer a warranty of up to 3 years on single-drive floor systems and up to 1 year on Thin Mil cladding systems.
We would love the opportunity to talk to you about the durability and safety offered by Boston Garage epoxy floor coverings. Whether you're looking for the perfect floor for your business or your home, choosing the right floor is a big decision. Transylvania Concrete Coatings is a professional concrete floor coating company that you can trust to provide you with the best products and certified, factory-trained technicians for this job.
