Keeping the biggest room in the house clean and tidy starts with the foundation – in this case the floor. And yet most people don’t think about how difficult a basic concrete floor makes cleaning, especially when cars or powertools drip oil, or someone spills paint.
You know what I mean…
- You have cracks in the concrete floor. (You wouldn’t step over a crack in the kitchen floor, would you?)
- Rain, winter salt and dirt are wearing down the surface. (You protect your dining room floor with a coat of varnish. Doesn’t the garage deserve the same?)
- Dust and grime seem to generate out of thin air. (Actually, they come from the concrete which releases dust as it ages.)
By leaving your concrete floor bare you make keeping the rest of the garage neat and tidy difficult.
