Concrete Floor Staining Ft Lauderdale

Easy DIY Concrete Floor Staining

If you find your concrete floor looking dull and boring, and you try to accentuate with rugs and carpets, then probably your concrete floor already needs a new look. One of the many ways you can give it a new look is through concrete floor staining. This procedure may be easy, however it involves using harmful chemicals such as hydrochloric acid. Because of this, you may consider hiring professionals who know how to properly stain floors instead.

But if you really sense you can do it, then here are the steps in staining your concrete floor.
However, if you believe that you can do this job on your own, then here is a step-by-step guide on how you stain your concrete floor:

1.  Remove all rugs, carpets and furniture that may be damaged during staining. Cover your walls to avoid them having stains.

2.  The next step is to thoroughly clean your floor. To completely remove the dust and dirt, use your vacuum cleaner. After vacuuming, you can wipe or mop the floor with a soap solution or commercially-available floor cleaners. Wait for your floor to dry up before proceeding to the next step.

3.  After making sure that your floor is completely clean and dry, you can now start mixing the stain mixture. Make sure that you follow the directions provided by the staining solution. Do the mixing outside your house for good air circulation; staining solutions have hydrochloric acid that can be harmful when inhaled. You can use your garden sprayer to apply your stain on the floor. Always remember that acid should be added to water and not the other way around. After making sure that the sprayer is working properly, you can now start the staining procedure.

4.  Start pumping the stain into your concrete floor. Make sure that you do it in even strokes and avoid creating puddles. Coat your floor evenly. Wait for the first stain coat to dry before applying another coat. You can spray as many coat as you want until you have reached your desired color and shade.

5.  After staining, it is advisable to seal your freshly stained floor. This is to add protection and to enhance your concrete floor’s finish. This procedure is just like staining, but easier. Instead of using a sprayer, you can use a paint roller made from synthetic fiber. Paint rollers made from cotton fibers will result to uneven application and streak formation. First, apply a thin coat of the sealer and wait for it to dry before applying another coat. You can have several coats, depending on your favored finish.

After the floor staining and sealing, you may also opt for floor polishing. Floor polish can add more luster and shine to your newly stained floor. Before you return your furniture back, make sure that the floor is completely dry. You may not need to put rugs and carpets on your floor.
