Basement floors tend to retain moisture due to hydrostatic pressure underground where moisture levels are highest due to the colder temperatures and the floor being located directly on soil where any water will settle. Because of the moisture factor, an unsealed basement floor will draw in water and cause all kinds of problems. Seal your basement floor with EpoxyPro's non-porous industrial & food grade, anti-microbial 100% solids industrial grade epoxy to prevent mold and mildew from forming.
Using EpoxyPro to seal your basement floor is a great product for moisture protection, and it also protects your household from dust that accumulates over time or is present at construction. Mold spores are a common component of household and workplace dust. However, when mold spores are present in abnormally high quantities, they can present a health hazard to humans.
Before you install carpeting or a vinyl floor, sealing the basement floor is crucial in preventing problems as mold and mildew. Without an epoxy sealant, mold and mildew can still grow, but you won't be able to see it right away. Not only will this ruin your carpeting or vinyl floor and furniture, but may also pose some serious health risks. If you plan to install carpet, wood, or tile flooring, we highly recommend that you create a moisture barrier before installing by sealing basement floor by using EpoxyPro Industrial grade epoxy floor system.
