One of the most difficult things about owning a garage and working on your own cars is keeping the surface of the floor clean and workable. Using garage floor coverings is the easiest way to make sure that you have the best looking and safest garage around. The three main options for garage floor coverings are mats, tiles, and cement sealants. Each one has its own individual benefits, but they are all very helpful at maintaining the look of your garage.
First off, the most popular style of garage floor coverings are garage mats. These are generally constructed of high-density rubber that can withstand a great deal of weight, wear, and tear. While they are usually larger than garage tiles as far as both thickness and surface area is concerned, they are surprisingly affordable and moveable. They are easily washable and stain resistant to protect the look of your shop.
The second most popular options for garage floor coverings are garage tiles. These tiles are constructed generally from incredibly dense plastic or molded rubber. Since they lock together, it is easier to replace a single tile than to replace an entire mat. If you manage to spill a substance on one of the tiles, it is easy to remove it, wash off the affected area, and place it back without having to move a large portion of the floor.
Third, when considering garage floor coverings, many Toronto consumers decide to have a professional apply a cement or concrete sealant to the surface of the cement slab. Since cement is a very porous substance, it has the tendency to absorb fluids and make it incredibly difficult to clean them out. The sealants fill in all of the gaps and tiny holes in the concrete to make the surface more durable. While this is not as good looking as a mat or garage tiles, it is much more simplistic.
