When it comes to your garage, you may not think about the floor much, if at all. You may park your car there, use it as a work space, or you may use the space for storage. This DIY project doesn’t even take that much expertise or expense. No matter what you use the garage for, there are a few reasons why painting your garage floor will be of benefit to you.
1. A painted garage floor is cleaner. Especially if you park your car(s) in your garage, painting the floor can make it easier to clean. The typical garage floor is bare concrete and can easily get stained with oil stains from a car or other kinds of drip and spills that come from other kinds of garage equipment. When you paint your garage floor, you’ll be able to take a very porous surface and seal it. Once sealed, drips and spills are much easier to clean. There won’t be those dreaded oil stains from your car. You can mop or wipe them up with ease.
2. A painted garage floor will make your house cleaner. You may not notice it, but concrete floors create a storm of dust. This dust can be tracked back into your house after your leave your car or drop a load of laundry off in your washer. The dust also will float in the air and collect on anything and everything in your garage, including your car. If you or any of your family have allergies, this dust can exacerbate any sort of respiratory illnesses and conditions. Painting your garage floor can eliminate all of these issues. Your house will be cleaner, the air in the garage will be cleaner, and everything inside of the garage will be less dusty. You’ll also need to clean the things that you store in your garage, including your car, much less frequently.
3. A painted garage floor will make the space more inviting. Most people do not enjoy going into their garages. It’s not that you’d want to live in the garage after the floor is painted, but it’ll be less of a cringe-worthy experience. For one thing, the very color of the floor will transformed from that drab, medium gray to a surface that reflects light better, thus making the space much brighter. In addition, those stubborn chemical and oil stains that you hate to overlook or live with can become a thing of the past.
If you’re looking for an easy and economical way to transform for your garage, you should consider painting the floor. You’ll be pleasantly surprised how much brighter and cleaner it will become after you’re done.
