If you have white crystalline or white powdery material on your cement based structures, which typically shows when the surface is dry, but may go away when damp or wet, you have efflorescence issues.
Efflorescence problems come in two forms....primary or secondary. Primary is a powdery material which can sometimes be brushed off with your hand or a stiff bristled brush or may even pass with time, while secondary is a hard, crystalline material. Both indicate that water is moving through the masonry structure and forcing "salts" to the surface, which then dry on the surface. Efflorescence is generally an indicator of water infiltration problems.
Hydro Scrub provides can remove the efflorescence and then waterproof the surface to prevent return of the efflorescence. Cessation of water moving through the masonry is mandatory to stop this problem.

Epoxy floors are wonderful for appearance and ease of care. If you have a desire for an epoxy floor a workshop or garage, Hydro Scrub can either prep the floor so that you can apply the epoxy coating yourself (if you are so inclined) or we can provide a complete turn-key service for the installation of the floor.
The cons to an epoxy floor are that the floors CAN be slippery when wet (there are methods to improve grip) and the installation process can be inconvenient since personal items must be removed from the work area and stored elsewhere for a minimum of 3 days up to a week... time is dependent on the weight of the item being placed back on the floor and the type of expoxy used.
Floors can be installed with a simple color coat, a color coat with "flecking" added, multiple color coats or color coat and a clear topcoat. It all depends on the desired finish you seek. Thoughtful consideration of "how" the floor will be used and the type of traffic it is to receive is very important!
Hydro Scrub performs epoxy floor installation only during the later summer months to ensure the temperature of the concrete is at least 55-60 degrees. Please keep this in mind if you are planning an epoxy floor installation.
