An important aspect of maintaining concrete flooringis addressing cracks and other imperfections on a regular basis in order to prevent tripping hazards, expanding of cracks, unsightly floors, decrease in productivity and sanitary conditions. Trying to seal cracks without the proper knowledge and tools can be time-consuming, loud, laborious, and disruptive.

Random cracks can appear in concrete floors from natural contraction and shrinkage as well as from heavy machinery or other practices that apply large amounts of pressure on the surfaces. Although small cracks may seem harmless at first, they have the potential to grow and may negatively affect the floor’s structural integrity.

Cracks require cleaning and grinding to prepare the surfaces, which is then followed by vacuuming or brushing to get rid of small particles. A filler is poured into the cracks until slightly overfilled, after which it is left to cure and grind until level with the surrounding floors.
