Grand Junction, CO (PRWEB) September 28, 2012
As reliable sources such as AccuWeather.com and others predict El Niño causing a generally wetter winter season than usual, companies like Garage Flooring LLC (@garflooringllc) are seeing sharp increases in sales of garage flooring mats and garage door thresholds.
Winter driving conditions, in addition to the obvious increase in snow on the roads, means more sand, salt, and other products designed to keep motorists safe on the road. Snow, ice and even moisture trapped on vehicles also contains the road salts and other products designed to melt the snow and add traction. Additionally, cars are typically covered with mud, dirt, and grime.
Unaware of the potential issues, homeowners pull onto their garage floor. The water, snow and ice melt onto the garage floor taking road salts and dirt with it. In addition to creating a huge mess, this problem can eventually lead to Spalling concrete and other issues. Further, wet concrete floors can be incredibly slick which can create a safety hazard.
Garage Flooring LLC carries a selection of garage floor mats for cars which are designed to protect the garage floor. These mats are designed to trap water, dirt, and road salts before it creates a mess and damages the garage floor.
"Garage Flooring LLC carries top brands of garage floor protector mats. From the BLT G-Floor Parking Pad to the Park Smart Clean Park and AutoFloorGuard, Garage Flooring LLC has the product you will need to cover your entire garage floor or just contain the dirt, water, snow, and road salts produced by winter driving. Even if the garage has an epoxy garage floor, protecting the floor with a containment mat is always a good idea" states Justin Krauss co-founder and President of Garage Flooring LLC.
According to industry experts, cars are not the only source of moisture seeping into the garage. Many homeowners, even those with new homes, have small gaps between the bottom of the garage door and the garage floor. In heavy rains or during snow melt water can easily enter the garage under the existing garage door seal.
"We recommend a PVC garage door threshold. Not only will it help to keep excess moisture out of your garage, but it also will help reduce the amount of rodents, spiders, insects, and other pests that are able to enter the garage," states Krauss.
According to the Garage Flooring LLC website, garage door thresholds work by acting in conjunction with the existing garage door seal. The threshold acts as a counterflashing to the existing seal, eliminating gaps, and making it much more difficult for moisture or pests to enter.
