Why Does Concrete Need to Be Sealed?

The Importance of Concrete Sealing in Northeast Ohio

If you have any concrete surface at your home—a driveway, sidewalk, or patio—you know firsthand that the weather in our region takes its toll. When concrete is freshly poured, it looks clean and new and adds exterior appeal to your home. But if that concrete is not regularly cleaned and sealed, it will quickly become dirty, cracked, and chipped. Concrete installation is not inexpensive, and that investment in your home should be well protected to last for years to come. That’s why we recommend concrete cleaning and sealing to our clients.

 

Sealed concrete adds curb appeal to your home.

As we noted, a concrete driveway is a great addition to your home and can add value, particularly for interested home buyers. And if you don’t plan on moving, you can enjoy the sparkle and shine of well-protected and cleaned concrete. 

 

Sealed concrete is better protected from inclement weather.

We get serious weather in Cleveland. When heavy rain or snow falls on your concrete, the water penetrates the surface. In cold temperatures, that water freezes—and that expansion can crack your concrete. If your concrete driveway is sealed, you have a barrier on your concrete that keeps water from penetrating and freezing. This helps to prevent cracks, spalls, and chips.

 

Environmentally safe concrete seals offer longevity.

Have you avoided concrete sealing because of environmental concerns? Pristine Clean cares about using eco-friendly cleansers and sealing products. In fact, we only use products that are safe for the environment, including your property, plants, and landscaping.

 

Concrete is an investment that needs to be protected.

The worst thing you could do for your concrete is to allow it to remain unprotected. When you invest in concrete, protect that investment—avoid having to repair or replace your concrete surfaces prematurely. Contact Pristine Clean for safe and effective concrete cleaning and sealing services.
