Imagine floors that are impervious and resistant to stains, dirt buildup, moisture, and dust. They can be cleaned with a dust mop or occasional wet mopping indoors, or outside. Concrete Craft(r), decorative stained concrete floors, are the best way to save time and money while adding style and color to your home.
Stented decorative concrete floors look great, are durable, and easy-to-maintenance.
It can seem overwhelming to keep floors clean and in good condition, especially when you consider outdoor and indoor floors.
The daily grind of everyday life can constantly be a nuisance to interior floors. People are always tripping on them, pets shed and sometimes “anointing”, food preparation and spillages add texture, A/Cs add a layer of dust and feet track in dirt.
Outside floors such as patios and porches, walkways and driveways, are constantly being harmed by vehicles (cars and bikes, scooters), dust and dirt, wind, rain and grass stains, spiderwebs and other pests.
Different types of flooring such as tile, vinyl, concrete and pavers require different cleaning methods. Special products can also be used to clean and repair any damage.
Here are four reasons stained decorative concrete is a great option for upgrading floors in your home.

Staining concrete floors is a great way to update both exterior and interior floors.
Stain can be applied directly to concrete floors that are in good condition. You can achieve stunning finishes on large areas such as driveways, patios and decks. This is far cheaper than any other flooring option. A resurfaced concrete overlay can be used to cover any cracks, discoloration or chips from the removal of a previous floor covering. This will conceal any damage and give the floor a new look.

Stenciled concrete is durable and will last for decades.
A concrete overlay can be used to replicate the look of wood or stone, but at a fraction of the cost. It can be stamped with a faux wood plank or stone pattern, and then custom-stained for an authentic look.
All concrete stain products have UV protection so colors won’t fade or change over the years.
Stain concrete is durable
Concrete is durable, but untreated concrete or bare concrete can be ruined by impact, spills (staining), moisture (erodiment), and temperature (freeze/thaw). Concrete floors can be damaged from both indoor and outdoor use. A stained concrete finish will beautify, seal, and protect against cracking and peeling, chipping and fading. Stain concrete interior floors are resistant to mold, moisture, and mildew, making them ideal for areas where moisture is a concern, such as kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms. Staint concrete is also a great choice for driveways and patios that are exposed.
You can add a year-round covered patio to your house with a durable stained concrete floor.

Stain-cured concrete has a compressive strength of less than 5000 psi. This is a great news for driveways that need to resist damage from heavy vehicles.
Stain concrete is easy to maintain
While we started by discussing the difficulties of keeping floors clean and durable, the benefits of stained concrete are the cherry on top. A dry dust mop, occasional wet mopping and a neutral-pH cleaner are all that’s needed to keep interior floors clean. You can keep outdoor surfaces clean by using a broom to remove any dirt. Stain concrete surfaces can be cleaned without leaving any trace. They also repel dirt, dust, moisture, and mold growth.
