Nobody wants to die in a slippery garage. Of course, nobody wants to fall at all! Slips are a common safety risk and it’s commonly happening in the garage where rain, snow, and other liquid elements leak in and causes slipping.
Whether you’re a homeowner looking for a safer garage, or a commercial business owner who doesn’t want himself or his employees crashing from slips in the garage area, there are solutions for this dilemma.
There are available materials and professional garage services for you to have the safest garage floor ever.
1. Anti-Slip Coatings
As the title speaks for itself, this is one of the easiest things to do to immortalize your garage floor from slips. Simply adding an anti-slip coating on top would do the job.
There are several variants but it all adds some sort of texture to the flooring. It’s also possible to create your own anti-slip coating by using anti-skid additives. But for best results, consult with a qualified contractor instead.
2. Epoxy Sealants
Epoxy sealants can also increase the safety and reduce the cause of slipping in slippery garage floors.
Epoxy garage floor coating have a small element of natural texture that works to help with the issue of slips. Color chips can be added to improve slip resistance.
3. Stamped Concrete Overlay
Coatings and sealants add safety to the flooring. But this is even more than maximized once you add another layer of concrete as an overlay.
This is called the stamped concrete overlay. The concrete is literally stamped after its application with a design of your choice. Texture is added to the floor to avoid slipping. The kind of texture and design must be able to withstand the traffic of your garage.
All the above mentioned techniques are durable and will last long.
But if an immediate solution is needed, you can add mats or adhesives on to some areas on the flooring. Adhesives may cause a mild damage to the garage floor, but other than that you’re good to go.
