If your facility has finished concrete floors, you have probably come to appreciate their durability and the ease with which they are maintained. Perhaps over the years, you have come to take for granted their low dusting and high light reflectivity. However, no concrete floor is immune to various forms of damage. The good news is that just because your concrete is damaged, doesn’t mean that the whole floor has to be replaced.
Here are some of the things that Titus Restoration can do to repair your finished concrete floors:
The truth about concrete floors is that if yours hasn’t cracked yet…it will someday. The ground underneath the building will settle, or the freezing and thawing of the ground throughout the seasons will cause sections of the concrete to crack. Crack filler can easily repair small cracks in concrete, and the floor will be good as new. In some cases, structural cracks will require additional stabilization as well.
Pitting and Holes
Pitting is usually caused by objects being dropped onto the concrete surface. Tiny pits may seem insignificant, but they can develop into bigger holes over time. Pitting and holes might simply be cleaned and filled with a high bond floor repair material, or they may need to be patched with a stronger material depending on their size and severity. Your concrete expert can assess the concrete damage and recommend the best course of action.
When a concrete surface begins to chip or flake away, it’s called spalling. While it may look like a minor problem, untreated spalling can lead to structural damage of the slab, which will require more extensive repairs. It’s far wiser to patch spalling with the proper materials right away to stop the damage at the start.
Concrete is poured in sections. The cracks or seams between concrete slabs are called joints. Each time a heavy machine, such as a truck or a forklift, drives across an unfilled joint it can cause the concrete to break away. Over time, the constant chipping away at the joints can cause large damage. This can be avoided by having joint filler installed to properly allow the joint to move, but not allow forklift tires to damage the concrete. If it’s too late and a joint is already cracked, other products can effectively repair and stabilize the joint to prevent further damage.
If you notice damage to your concrete floors, what you really need to do is call the pros at Titus Restoration right away. Your finished concrete floors are sealed to keep moisture out and retain their structural integrity. Any cracks or holes in the surface can potentially let moisture into the slab, which can cause even more extensive damage.
