Why Invest in Concrete Sealing? Perhaps, you have likely spent a fair bit of money on your exterior concrete. You are proud of it; it gives you a little burst of joy when you see it looking clean and new. We get it!
The issue is that when your concrete is exposed to the elements, it can crack, discolour, or experience other problems that diminish its visual appeal and longevity. To avoid this, you will want to be professionally sealing your concrete. This applies to everything from a lovely concrete patio to a decorative concrete driveway. Concrete that is not sealed correctly also requires more regular maintenance as it dirties quicker. This will take up a lot more of your time and possibly even money.
Enviro Clean and Capture not only supply a concrete sealing service but strongly recommend it, to ensure you keep your concrete attractive and durable for as long as possible. Let’s take a look at the top five reasons why concrete sealing is the way to go.
1. Mould prevention
To help protect your concrete while receiving a bunch of other benefits, you’ll want to know about the three main sealers:
Topical: A protective layer on the surface of your concrete
Penetrating: A sealer that actually penetrates the concrete to form a chemical barrier shielding it against moisture
Integral: A sealer that is added to the concrete mix performing the same function as a topical sealer, and is applied immediately after being installed
As concrete is porous, it absorbs moisture. If it doesn’t dry properly, it will create mould and mildew that will cause a green discoloration on the surface. Not only does this give the appearance of always dirty concrete, but it also ruins durability. Sealing inhibits mould growth helping your concrete to look better for longer.
2. Enhanced durability
Your concrete is likely taking a lot of hits, be it from people walking on it, pets and kids running around, the weather, or sometimes even vehicles. Any chance you get to enhance the durability of your concrete is something you should consider.
Sealing does precisely that and helps to prevent damage, which not only ensures that your concrete looks excellent; it makes sure it can handle whatever you throw at it for an extended period of time.
3. Less need to replace your concrete
Laying a decent amount of concrete isn’t cheap. A concrete driveway on average should be lasting for around 25-30 years. If it’s not taken care of, however, this time frame is significantly reduced. Discoloration and cracking are big reasons why you may need to replace your concrete sooner, which means that significant cost is coming up quicker than you had expected.
This is where you need to weigh up the cost of regular maintenance and how that may save you the even greater cost of replacement.
4. High levels of protection
Wear and tear on your concrete comes in more forms than just having it walked on. There is damage from the sun’s UV rays, oil spills, and other stains. A quality sealer offers high levels of protection from all of these things.
As sealer locks out moisture, there is no risk of your concrete freezing and thawing, which causes damage, if you live in a climate where that may be an issue.
5. Colour enhancement
The exposure that your concrete likely has to the elements means that discolouration is a significant possibility, making your concrete look far older than it is. A Topical or integral sealer will work hard to ensure that your colour stays intact, helping it to look clean and sharp for as long as possible.
Your colour can diminish due to grit, dirt, and grime. We see many clients shocked at how a high-quality professional concrete clean can completely transform their space, making it like new again.

As you can see from the points above, there are many advantages to concrete sealing and coating. Proper sealers can also make cleaning a much quicker task and ensure reduced future maintenance requirements.
