1. It Promotes Durability
Concrete is solid with more than 4,500 pounds per square inch but its surface being exposed to machinery and foot traffic makes it prone to several hazards such as cracks, scratches, buckling, and warping among others due to the porous nature of the material.
Concrete staining involving acid staining of the concrete surface makes it protected from fading, discoloration, chipping and peeling. The extra protection also helps to prevent mold and mildew growth on the surface. In addition, it tends to "penetrate" the surface; rather than lay on top like paint will.
Concrete staining is beneficial for industrial and commercial painting environments because it inhibits ad resists fire, which can help to save lives in certain situations. Concrete staining is highly beneficial in factories that make use of flammable materials because it serves as a passive fire resistance setup.
3. It Promotes Energy Efficiency
Concrete staining can be used as effective heat insulation where there is a need to increase energy efficiency. Concrete is known to possess the capacity to absorb and gradually release heat or coldness makes it energy efficient. However, when concrete is stained, its thermal mass is enhanced, and it reduces overdependence on the heating and air condition system.
In addition to protecting against the damage that can be caused by an impact, it is also easy to maintain. Cleaning stained concrete includes sweeping and mopping to remove dirt and debris while the staining treatment makes the floor scratch-resistance to a broom. Unlike carpets that will fade over time, a stained concrete remains unblemished perpetually. Only if deemed fir could you polish is to restore its shine.
5. Stain Enhances the Aesthetics of the Floor
Concrete staining is not primarily chosen for its aesthetic appeal; however, it can be integrated into the overall décor theme or style for space. It is mostly used in the commercial and industrial context, but people now consider it an innovation in the home painting or interior designing of either the bathroom or kitchen.
