If you hire Stellar Surfaces to create your stained concrete masterpiece, our main objective is presenting you with an amazingly unique floor while protecting your most valuable asset; property. We expertly protect your walls and any existing baseboard or trim that could be damaged throughout the staining process. Our technicians are trained in the latest safety practices because, while the chemicals used are diluted and safer than ever, it is still acid. The acid used is what determines the color of the finished product because acid reacts with lime and other components in the concrete. It is applied in a thin coat by a sprayer and is layered until the desired color is reached. This can be rather time consuming because each layer must dry completely.
After the acid has dried completely, a neutralizing mix of water and ammonia is sprayed on the floor. This is basically to make sure that when you walk on your floor, you aren’t getting covered in acid. To simply try and clean off the acid won’t make a bit of difference. We use a state of the art vacuum to suck up the excess liquid to leave the floor clean and acid-free. In order to protect your newly stained floor, we roll on a protective seal that will ensure that you can enjoy your floor for years to come.
