Have you ever walked into your garage and just felt uncomfortable? Are you an allergy sufferer and find that your sinuses just can’t seem to agree with the garage area? Perhaps you think there’s not much you can do – after all, the garage is that gloomy, dank room, right? Well, it doesn’t have to be!
Most people aren’t aware that the typical garage floor is a potential trap for many allergens. Concrete is actually porous and can absorb spills, causing unpleasant odours, and can even be a breeding ground for mould due to the moisture. Also if you have pets; animal dander can easily trap in cracks and fissures.
You may be finding it strangely difficult to clean the garage floor. One day you sweep the floor, removing the dust – only to come back the next day to find it looks dusty and feels gritty under foot. This issue of concrete dusting is actually quite common, and is caused by disintegration or breaking down of the top layer of concrete over time. Cars, foot traffic, and even your attempts at cleaning can worsen the problem. Concrete dust is not only bad news for allergy sufferers, it is harmful to your overall health.
