Concrete Floor Repairs

Cracks in concrete floors are not only unattractive, they can also be dangerous and cause accidents.

REPAIR AND RENOVATION OF INDUSTRIAL FLOORS

We use best materials and machinery in the sector to offer the highest quality. At BECOSAN® we repair damage to an industrial floor leaving it in perfect condition. This is a precursor to a treatment with our patented BECOSAN® treatment, where we harden and seal the concrete floor to minimise future damage.

REPAIR OF A CONCRETE FLOOR

Damage often occurs in concrete floors in industrial or logistics facilities. Even though care is taken during the installation process, deficiencies and damages often arise during the life span of a concrete floor.

Although having to stop company activities due to repair work is a concern, the repair of a concrete floor is usually shorter and cheaper than total reconstruction.

We need to be on the lookout for the appearance of cracks in the floor, as this is usually a sign that the concrete floor is beginning to deteriorate.

HOW TO REPAIR A CONCRETE FLOOR?

Heavy use of industrial flooring causes problems and minor damage will require maintenance work.

It often happens that due to economic or time issues, problems are not corrected properly and a quick fix is applied to get out of trouble and to improve the appearance. But the problem generally reappears, generating higher costs for the consequent repair work.

There is no generic rule for repairing a concrete floor, each concrete is unique and must therefore be evaluated and treated as such.

MOST COMMON PROBLEMS IN CONCRETE

Concrete problems arise due to poorly executed procedures, flaws in the pre-existing surface, improper use of the floor, poor condition of the materials, deficient design of the concrete floor, excessive humidity, extreme temperatures, or just heavy usage.

The most common and the first sign of deterioration that occurs in the floor are cracks, the first stage at which all the other associated problems begin.

Consequently, they can cause the detachment of pieces of the concrete floor, leaving the interior of the concrete floor exposed. In this case, the consequences are more serious in the short term if maintenance is not carried out properly.

Another area particularly susceptible to problems are joints in concrete, as these are spaces in which moisture and dust can penetrate. Over time, cracks can spread, widen and even interconnect with each other.

MAIN MATERIALS USED IN CONCRETE REPAIRS

There are different types of materials available on the market for concrete repairs. Among the manufacturers of these materials stand out:

  • Sika
  • Weber

It is essential to clean and prepare the affected area before applying a filler. We recommend using a suitable mortar or resin for cracks. It generally consists of two components, in order to provide a degree of flexibility.

Strict hygiene regulations must be observed in food handling facilities or clean rooms. For this reason, the repair of cracks is a task that should only be carried out by an expert.

In addition, the application of mortars used to repair cracks minimises the creation of dust in the affected areas of a troweled floor.

These repair mortars are recommended for their resistance to corrosive agents, their liquid repelling properties (oil can be difficult to remove from the concrete floor) and their flexibility.  We will evaluate carefully the best options and materials to be used when repairing a concrete floor.
