FAQs

Do you work weekends and holidays?

Yes. Weekends are no additional cost. We do typically charge an extra 10% for all holiday work. Our crews are committed to work all holidays because many plants are shut down for maintenance work. We encourage you to plan ahead (preferably 6 weeks) in order to schedule crews and equipment over a holiday shutdown.

How soon can you do the work?

If materials are in stock, many jobs can start within a week. Pro Maintenance employs an excellent and highly efficient crew of workers which enables a flexible work schedule around our client’s time frame.

Do you do residential work?

Yes. Although Pro Maintenance focuses primarily on commercial and industrial work, we also have an excellent residential team that can help you with the garage or basement floor you are looking for.

Why does a floor need any protection?

Industrial floor is heavily exposed to stress, load and several types of industrial chemicals. In this high demanding industrial environment, concrete surface fails. Also concrete substrate is porous in nature thus when water and other fluids enter into concrete, the reinforcing steel corrodes. To sustain and maintain the industrial floor a protection is must.

Why should I coat my floor?

Unprotected concrete floors will wear, become stained by oils and fluids, and be damaged by the corrosive effects of snow and ice melting chemicals such as rock salt. Our flooring systems protect concrete from wear because it is actually harder and more durable than the concrete itself.

Which factors determine the flooring system?

Operational requirements like crack bridging, slip resistance, abrasion resistance, impact-load resistance, compression resistance, traffic resistance, non-flammability, conductivity, aesthetics, easy to clean, ease of maintenance, long life etc. and surface condition determine the flooring system.

Do I need to recoat my concrete floor every year?

No, you won’t need to recoat it every year. The recoat period may vary depending on the use of the floor. Environments where there are heavy or continuous movement; where the floor is highly exposed to corroding environments; where flooring is not properly maintained or where aesthetics have to be maintained to a certain point may require a shorter recoat schedule.

Does the anti-skid make the floor harder to clean?

Yes, Coating with low to medium amount of anti-skid is traditionally cleaned with a mop with water, or water/vinegar mixture. If you add more aggressive anti-skid, a broom will need to be used in place of the mop, everything else stays the same.
