Giving your garage floor a deep and thorough cleaning will help prepare it for its new paint job. Scrub your floor with a shop brush and soap and water to remove all the oil, grease and dirt. You must do this before beginning any steps to applying your new garage floor paint. If you have some old, deep oil stains try removing them with chemicals and abrasive scrub pads. Before you apply any paint or coating your floor must be completely free of all grime, dirt and grease. You can also spray your floor with prep cleaner and then rinsing it to better prepare and your floor for the new paint application.
Garage floor mats are economical, improve the look of the floor and are quick and easy to install. Costing less than $2 a square foot on average, they are the fastest of all three options to put down. They can be purchased online, as a roll or a complete mat, and installation is as simple as cutting them to fit the garage as needed, and then unrolling. They create a seamless look in a smaller garage or can be used only under the car in a larger garage. Manufactured with raised patterns to reduce slipping, they are not a good solution for use on unsealed cement floors, as the ground moisture seeping upwards through the pores of the concrete will be trapped under the non-porous polyvinyl of the mat, causing mold and bacteria to flourish and eroding the floor over time.
PVC Interlocking Floor Tiles: Interlocking PVC flooring tiles form a great thermal, noise and dust barrier, so are the prefect choice if you are using your garage as a multi-use room such as a garage gym or play room. They are also extremely durable floor tile and so can cope with the every day wear and tear if you are looking to transform your garage into a home workshop. Although not waterproof like the porcelain floor tileor the epoxy flooring, they are very easy to separate, wipe under and re-attach should you spill anything onto the floor
