Get Anti Slip Spray Paint Online from CoatingDaddy
I hope this has never happened to you, and that it never does, but it becomes very common during the wet winter months. You drive your car into the garage with water dripping from underneath from road wash, rain, or snow melt. You also may have some oil drops on your floor from leaks at the engine or maybe you spilled a little doing the last oil change.
The water runs on top of the oil and then you step out of the car. Since oil and water don't mix, they work like a friction-less surface and your foot slides out from under you. The next thing you know, you are on the floor with a broken arm, broken hip, or concussion. This scenario actually plays out many times each winter.
If you want to lessen, and almost alleviate, the possibility of this kind of accident in your garage then you want to apply an anti-slip garage floor paint. You will really be surprised at how easy and inexpensive this project can be. You can find everything you need at your local hardware store or big box home improvement store.
The most important thing to remember if you are going to apply this product to your floor is to clean it very well. If there is any contamination, for example the oil spots we talked about above, then you will not get a good result and the coating will be lifting up within a few months or weeks.
Start by cleaning and scrubbing the floor with soap and water. Next use a concrete degreaser to remove any old petroleum stains which may be left over. You can check to see if the stains are completely gone by doing the bead test. Spray a light coating of water on the entire floor. If the water beads up at a certain place instead of soaking in then you need to clean this spot once again with the degreaser.
After you are done cleaning it is best to leave the floor over night to dry. It works very well to keep a space heater running to get rid of all dampness. Also, this extra heat should give you a very good environment for the proper curing of the paint.
When you start to apply the garage floor paint the next day don't try to apply the entire mixture at once. You are much better off to work in small areas of about 6' by 6'. Roll out the paint and then spread on the anti-slip material before the paint starts to scale over. Once you are done painting the floor, the coating must set up before being driven on. A minimum of three days is required for curing but a week is much better.
