Concrete is one of the most durable building materials. So, why do you need to do any maintenance or apply a protective finish to it? The experts at Seal Now have some practical advice on why taking care of your concrete is so important to protecting your investment.


Concrete isn’t immune to dirt and grime. It’s a porous material so spills can penetrate the surface. This can weaken the concrete, hastening deterioration. A professional-grade cleaning accomplishes several things to extend the life of your concrete:

  • It will help keep your concrete looking beautiful.
  • It is essential prior to the staining or sealing process. Cleaning helps prepare the concrete surface so the sealer or stain will have maximum adhesion.


There are different types of sealers, based on different kinds of concrete. Sealing has several benefits such as:

  • It helps protect concrete from environmental conditions (sunlight, rain, and freezing temperatures), stains (even oil), and improves concrete’s resistance to road salts.
  • Sealing delays the effects of dusting, pitting, and scaling keeping your concrete looking its best for longer.


Staining adds pizzazz and personality to your concrete. With 33 colors to choose from, you can find the perfect option for an aesthetic compliment to the natural landscape or add a cohesive design element to your décor scheme.

  • Stain new concrete to add instant curb appeal to your home and give old concrete a fresh new look.
  • Use UV stable pigments around the pool, driveways, or patios.
