Concrete Basement Floor
It’s time to straighten out some mistaken ideas about concrete, and expose some common myths about the perceived disadvantages of concrete floors
“Using an Artistic Concrete coating to seal your concrete basement floor is not only a great way to guard against moisture, but, assuming that the basement and floor are structurally sound, enhancing the concrete, rather than covering it up, is fast becoming the gold standard in concrete basement floor treatments, with benefits that extend far beyond aesthetics.”
Concrete Basement Floor tend to retain moisture due to hydrostatic pressure underground where moisture levels are highest because of colder air, and the concrete being directly on the soil, where any water will settle. Due to the moisture factor, an unsealed basement floor will draw in water, and will cause all types of problems. Sealing your concrete basement floor with an Artistic Concrete coating will help to prevent mold and mildew from developing, and will help your concrete basement floor last much longer.
Using Artistic Concrete Coatings to seal your basement is not only a great product for moisture protection, but will also help to protect your household from dust that accumulates over time, or is present at construction. Mold spores are a common component of household and workplace dust. However, when mold spores are present in abnormally high quantities, they can present a health hazard to humans, potentially causing allergic reactions, producing mycotoxins, or causing fungal infection, (mycosis).
Decorating your concrete floor is often overlooked when it comes to resurfacing your basement, living room, or kitchen floors. Carpeting, tile, wood, or vinyl can be decent choices when remodeling an upstairs room, but due to the problems with moisture, they aren’t a good idea for a concrete basement floor. What if you could create a look that’s unique, personal, and never needs replacing? Something YOU designed?
