Properly installed and maintained concrete could last 30 years. With the harsh Minnesota winters, and all the salts, it won’t…unless you attack and flush the chlorides from your facility.
Even during a wimpy winter, your facility was de-iced 50+ times. Most of that salt is still in your concrete, in your hardscapes and in your surrounding soil.
The faster you remove the salt, the longer your concrete and hard surfaces will last.
Statistics have indicated that over 40% of failure of structures is due to corrosion of reinforcement.
We don’t have your typical run-of-the-mill concrete cleaning and sealing program at TCOS.
Cleaning and sealing your concrete on an bi-annual basis has been shown to increase concrete life by 50%!
We make serious efforts to keep excess chlorides off your surfaces during the winter. Yet, there will always be the salt you can see the the chlorides you can’t. Our responsibility is to help you prolong the life of your hard surfaces and the health of your landscape. These steps will take your property from an Emergency Room status to a Preventative Maintenance approach. So instead of spending 100% of your budget each season fixing serious issues, you are spending 70% of your budget on maintenance.
