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.
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.

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.
