A great way to upgrade your boring old garage floor is by applying one of many different garage floor treatment options available on the market. One such option is a solvent-based urethane that repels oil, vehicle fluids and tire tracks that can all stain a concrete floor. If your vehicle does happen to leak something, all you need to do is simply wipe it off the coated floor and you are done. This can all be done by yourself or you can hire a professional to do the job if you do not have the time or are not a do it yourself type person.

Your first step involved in applying a solvent-based urethane garage floor treatment is to clean the surface with a high-pressure washer to remove all dirt and stains. Scrub the floor with a good detergent and water solution by using a scouring machine if you have one. Otherwise, you will have to use some good old-fashioned hard work. Apply a muriatic acid solution, which will rough up the floor so that the floor coating will form a good bond with the concrete floor.

If you happen to have any areas of the floor that are cracked or broken then a garage floor treatment mixture of epoxy and sand is used to fill those areas before applying the protective coating. Apply the primer with a metal squeegee and roll it out with a 3/8 inch nap roller. Let it dry overnight. An interesting technique to give you a unique floor is to throw colored paint flakes to the wet surface of the floor after applying a base coat. You will have a unique floor that no one else will have. Let the paint and flakes dry overnight and then on the following day apply a sealer. Some sealers require one coat while others required two coats. If applying two coats you will need to wait a few hours before applying the second coat. When you are finished, you should be quite impressed with your work.

If you would prefer a garage floor treatment that is much simpler then perhaps laying industrial mats around the garage would be suffice for you. They come in many different sizes and cleaning is quite easily done with soap and water. You can remove the mats to clean them, or clean them right where they are it is up to you. They are quite durable and will last a long time as long as they are cleaned regularly. Using a strong chemical though is not a good idea because it will cause damage to the mats.

Most garages are a place to store the family vehicle however; some people use it as a spare room and not for storing a car. In this case, then your garage floor treatment would likely be more along the lines of vinyl or linoleum for durability and décor. Alternatively, you could choose the flooring to match whatever the garage is used for, such as carpet if it is a games room for example.
