A garage floor can be revived with a layer of epoxy concrete garage paint. When painting a garage floor, the most important step is the preparation of the area. If the garage floor is not properly prepared, the color will not adhere to the floor. Prepare your garage floor for painting with high pressure wash.
Clean and Fixed Floors. Remove all items from the garage floor. Sweep or vacuum the garage floor to remove dust and debris. Remove oil, grease and fuel stains. Mix three parts of water to some bleach in a spray bottle or use an environmentally friendly concrete cleaner before garage paint. Spray the detergent onto the stain, and allow it to penetrate the stain for 15 minutes. Scrub the stain with a stiff brush. Rinse the area with a power tray. Clean the entire garage floor with a power tray. Start on the back of the garage and use a reciprocating motion to wash the floor. Work in small parts, moving from one side of the garage to the other. After the entire floor, the power has been washed, let the garage floor dry thoroughly. Patch cracks and slits with a cement patch. Remove loose concrete from cracks and cracks, using a screwdriver. Apply cement patch to problem areas. Let the cement patch dry thoroughly.

Pour garage paint and concrete etchers into a plastic water can. Use full strength – no mixing required. Wet the floor with a garden hose. Shake water boiler to sprinkle etchings on the floor. Start at the corner farthest from the exit. Work in small parts, moving from one side of the garage to the other. Concrete etcher opens the concrete pores for optimal color adhesion. Let the concrete etcher stand for 10 to 20 minutes. Start at the corner farthest from the exit and scrub the concrete etcher sharply with a rigid brush broom. Work in small parts. Do not allow the product to dry on the surface. Rinse the garage floor with a power tray when the entire garage floor has an etch. Start in the first corner and work your way forward. Allow to dry for about four hours. Use a non-metal mop to remove excess water. Apply concrete primer to the garage floor with a long-shouldered roller. Apply a thin, even layer of primer. Apply it using an up and down motion. Work in small parts, beginning at the corner farthest from the exit. Let the concrete primer dry for at least eight hours before your first layer of epoxy concrete floor paint.
