Concrete floors and countertops have always earned a bad reputation for being stain prone. This was probably because of the quality of sealants used. Sealants in the past were acrylic and wax based; these were not as resistant to stains as the ones that are available today. Before you choose a sealant, make sure that you ask your contractor if;
a) The sealant would not affect the look of the floor negatively, but would only enhance it.
b) It is non-porous
c) The sealant would prevent all stains, irrespective of the fact that they’re from food, oil or other acidic substances like vinegar and lemon, or household cleaners.
d) It is scratch proof.
Basically, there are two types of sealants; penetrating and topical. Penetrating sealants are applied almost immediately to the bare concrete. When dried and wiped, these sealants are almost invisible. As for topical sealants, they can be found in a wide variety of appearances and quality. Common among them include wax, acrylic, epoxies, urethanes, etc.
