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.
Soft tiles are a rubber like material. Actually made from PVC, soft tiles usually come in a peel and stick variety. The popular rubber garage floor tiles manufactured by Better Life Technology are manufactured at an impressive 95 mil base thickness and include a peel and stick backing that makes installation a breeze. BLT garage tiles are available in 3 colors including Midnight Black, Absolute White and Slate Grey. They are available in levant and diamond tread patterns in both a 12? and 24? tile.
