Reducing Summertime Allergies with Garage Floor Coatings?
As Summertime approaches quickly, allergies become a bigger problem for many people. With higher pollen counts and increased humidity, allergies begin to skyrocket, and so does the growth of mold spores in our home. Garages are one of the biggest culprits of housing dust particles, growing mold, and contributing to your heightened allergies. Luckily, there is a creative solution that requires very little effort from you!
Surprisingly, cleaning and resurfacing your garage floors could tremendously help calm your sneezing and sniffling this allergy season. Due to concrete’s porous nature, it is prone to growing mold spores. When you see that green tinge on the floors of your garage, especially the portions that receive little to no sunlight, it is most likely mold growing within your floors. In addition to this, the tiny nooks and crannies that lie within concrete house dust particles that are not easily moved. Only a very powerful, professionally done, pressure washing can rid your floors of these particles. Using a wash with a bleach or mildew preventing mixture will help to release and kill off any mildew growing in your garage.
It is also helpful to resurface your garage for a long term fix! If you are especially prone to allergies, this will benefit you more than you know. If allergies aren’t much of an issue to you, resurfacing your garage floors is still a great investment to improve the value and appeal of your home. Epoxy is applied to concrete in multiple different layers. Each layer is applied for a different reason. These layers adhere to your concrete sealing and coating it for good. Epoxy isn’t permeable like concrete so it won’t house mold growth all year. It also doesn’t have the tiny nooks and crannies that concrete does. This prevents dust particles from settling down which makes cleaning it and maintain it an absolute breeze. With a quick scrub, mop, or pressure wash, your epoxy floor will be good as new!
Everyone is all too familiar with the itchy, runny nose, coughing, watery, itchy eyes, and congested breathing that the allergy season brings each year. You can make your allergy season a little more bearable by cleaning and resurfacing garage floors of your West Chester home. Epoxy provides a healthier, easier to clean, longer lasting, more durable floor for your garage. Protect your health and your concrete by calling an epoxy flooring professional today to beat those allergies for good!

Really Pleased! Our garage needed some major help – not only was it a mess but the floor was just ugly with all the stains and such. I will agree with the reviewer below – do not go with the cheap imitators! Floorguard not only has a great product, but their installers and service is well worth any extra cost, which is minimal anyway. Our neighbors have commented on how good our garage looks and we’ve recommended them to Floorguard without hesitation.
The garage looks so good! A+ company on every level. Wish I had another garage to resurface!
My neighbor had a floor done by another company that was new to the industry, boy were they sorry. I went with the experts, Floorguard did an incredible job!!

Covering our old, gray garage floor was a great aesthetic and functional improvement. This project requires 2 days: first day preparing the surface (major job requiring right equipment), putting down first coating and sprinkling the flakes. This requires about 4 hours. After this dries, they come back next day and apply the topcoat. They notified us when they would start the work and arrived as promised. They worked diligently, completed the work efficiently, left the work areas and our driveway clean. The owner Steve is a great guy to deal with.

It was a pleasure dealing with the company’s owner Steve Chaloult. When we called him to give us an estimate, he arranged to come within a few days. We have a very large two car garage. His estimate was a bit more than the first company we called but he seemed very well prepared in showing us samples and very knowledgeable about his product and we just liked him. For personal reasons , we had to delay installation for about a month and he could not be more accommodating. we finally we able to have it done this past week and it was worth the wait. The garage floor is just beautiful and I never would have thought I would say that about a garage floor! We also had the lower walls around the floor done and very glad we did. At one time we were thinking we could do this ourselves using a kit. WHAT were we thinking? This is a job for a professional and we are so glad we used Steve.

The owner Steve Chaloult was easy to work with and he’s very good at what he does. I highly recommend Floorguard as your contractor if you’re wanting to have a garage floor finished with a durable epoxy like colored finish. Floorguard came when they said they would and cleaned up after they were finished. Floorguard also installs garage storage cabinets.
