How quickly does Ashford Formula treated concreted develop a seal?
When the Ashford Formula is applied to concrete, the process of sealing only begins. The seal is the result of an ongoing chemical reaction that takes several months to complete. For this reason, the floor can be susceptible to some staining during the first few months. Curecrete recommends the following guidelines:
1 – Diaper equipment that could leak oil or other contaminants.
2 – Clean the floor regularly with a good detergent and aggressive scrubbing equipment. As the Ashford Formula continues to react with the concrete, contaminants will be forced out and removed by the cleaning process. Water from the cleaning process will also speed up the reaction of the Ashford Formula with the concrete, accelerating the seal.
3 – Clean up small spills immediately and spot-treat any stains with a good degreaser or oil emulsifier. As the floor matures, it will take on a more uniform appearance and any stains will become less and less noticeable. When the Ashford Formula ultimately seals the floor, the results are permanent. At this point, frequent cleaning is necessary only to maintain the appearance of the floor.
