Seal Your Choices
Sealers are the final touch to your decorative concrete. Sealers are to decorative concrete what varnish is to a wood project. Sealers are what will protect your decorative concrete from dirt, stains from oil and grease, the sun and tire marks. Sealers can be slip resistant and are available in low, medium and high gloss finishes.
Decorative concrete is not only tough, durable and beautiful, it is easy to clean and maintain, too. That is what most people love about this flooring system. Albeit, easy to clean and maintain, there still is a right way of handling your decorative concrete.
When maintained the right way, your decorative concrete patio, porch, driveway, pool dick or walkway will see many long years of use. They are far easier to maintain than a concrete surface or even a brick surface.
Regardless of what type of decorative concrete you have, a dry mop or a broom is all you need to get rid of debris and dust that have accumulated in the surface. Twigs, leaves, bug and some other debris can stain the surface. You should also refrain from dragging heavy objects on the surface to prevent scratches.
For liquid, oil, grease or chemical spills, immediately wipe them off with a wet mop. You may also use a chemical cleaner (non-abrasive). Proper cleaning of decorative concrete will both enhance its aesthetic appeal and its durability.
Aside from the regular occasional refreshing of the sealer will enhance and prolong the life of your decorative concrete. It will prevent dirt, oil, grease and other chemical substances from penetrating the surface making it easy to clean. It also enhances its color and makes the surface resistant to fading caused by exposure to UV.
