Start Spring Cleaning In Your Garage This Winter
Spring cleaning can be a hassle to some but for some people it can be easy and fun. The garage is one of the hardest rooms in the house to keep clean especially with cement floors. The winter weather makes this task a little bit more difficult because for one, the garage gets cold, and no person likes to work in the cold. Thankfully there are some options. Professional help can be expensive and annoying. For one, you have to set up an appointment which can be a hassle, and secondly you have to deal with strange people in your home.
While spring cleaning you may also what to brighten up the look of your garage as well. Garage floor resurfacing is popular and creates a nice look for your work space. Epoxy garage floor coating is the best bet. Epoxy garage floor coating is not paint. Epoxy is thermosetting resin that is applied to floor as a coating. It is created when one part of epoxide is mixed with one part polyamine hardener. As the mixture cures it hardens and creates a beautiful coating on the floor.
The benefits of epoxy garage floor coating are amazing. For instance, if you have small imperfections in the concrete such as spider cracks and other flaws, the coating will cover that up. Epoxy is also anti-dusting because it is a topical sealer. So tedious dusting is not needed. Therefore you will have less dust and dirt tracked into your home due to heavy in and out traffic.
The coating is also extremely durable and resilient to impact, so no worries if you just so happen to drop a hammer or some other heavy tool. For those who live in snowy climates, the epoxy floor coating is moisture resistant. This makes it easier to clean up icy brines and road salts that can collect in the garage during the harsh winter times.
Garage floor resurfacing with epoxy helps with cleaning simply because it is oil, gasoline, and brake fluid resistant along with other caustic fluids that may come from a car. It is extremely easy to clean. Mild soap and warm water is all you will need, and a dust mop or broom for debris. In some instances the epoxy can be slippery when wet depending on the topcoat you choose. People in dry climate rarely have this problem. Non-slip options are available as well which gives you another advantage in cleaning. Warranties of up to fifteen years are normal for epoxy coating because of the extreme durability of it.
Professional garage floor resurfacing is the best way to go about epoxy floor coating because of the chemicals can be dangerous and like stated before, it comes with a fifteen year warranty in most cases. Happy spring cleaning in the winter!

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.
