New Concrete and Bare Concrete on Industrial & Commercial Floors
New concrete or bare concrete on your industrial floor is porous and is susceptible to deterioration from foot traffic, forklifts, chemicals, water or a combination if left unprotected. There are many important reasons to protect your bare or new concrete:
- protected floors last longer
- easier to clean
- high gloss coated floors reflect light, reducing electricity use
- look clean, professional and better to work on
- USDA / FDA compliant (if applicable)
New Concrete on Your Industrial Floor
- evaluate moisture content in the new concrete. If high moisture exists and a floor coating is installed without remediation, it can delaminate the new floor coating
- evaluate the joints and presence of cracks
- evaluate the physical properties of the new concrete
- evaluate the curing method of the new concrete: water or chemical spray
New concrete needs to be professionally evaluated to ensure the industrial floor is ready and prepared for its new floor coating. Concare will:

Bare Concrete on Your Industrial Floor
Bare concrete is similar to new concrete as it has been left unprotected. New concrete has had minimal to no traffic while bare concrete can show years of wear with cracks, chips, gouges and potholes.
Bare concrete that has been used and abused for years needs to be professionally evaluated to ensure the concrete is repaired, prepped and ready to receive a new floor coating. Concare will:
- determine if moisture is exists
- determine if concrete is exposed to chemicals
- determine amount of traffic and type of traffic on the concrete floor
- determine if the bare concrete is subjected to extreme heat and cold
- determine if there was any previous floor coating
- inspect deterioration: crack, joints, spalling, scaling, gouging or potholes
If you are ready to have your industrial bare concrete floor repaired, coated and protected by a reputable contractor, contact Concare for an evaluation.
