EpoxyShield Garage Floor Project, Part 4

EpoxyShield Garage Floor Project, Part 4
No, we're not done yet. I forgot a step yesterday. Before I can paint the floor, I have to mix up some ETCH in my new watering can and spread it around the floor (in sections no larger than 10 ft x 10 ft at a time). After letting it sit for a short time, scrub scrub scrub, then rinse, rinse, rinse. The ETCH will help in cleaning the floors. The Degreaser was for removal of grease. ETCH does the rest kinda.

It took me a good two hours, or perhaps a little longer, to do the job. With a two car garage, there are two boxes of EpoxyShield and each one has the little bag of ETCH in the front. I used the full bag on each side. I would not recommend doing both sides back to back. Take a nice long break between the two if you can. You'll need it.

There were noticeable improvements to the cleanliness of the floors after using the ETCH. We had some stains on the floor that I tried to get out with the degreaser, but never wanted to let go. Since they weren't grease, that's kinda why the degreaser didn't help there. One other tip, don't put the ETCH in the paint/floor coating. It doesn't belong. Only in the sprinkling can.

One other thing I did today... I filled the cracks in the floor that were under the garage doors. It looked odd with the earlier filler ending abruptly. I also watched the video about a half dozen times to make sure I understood what else needed to be done today.

I'm really hoping I get to paint tomorrow. The temperature looks appropriate in the morning for the job to be done well. We'll see. I can't imagine I missed another step.
