Gelato, this happened to me after the floor flooded more than one-had stripped it and repainted a couple times! I scraped it with a long handled scraper (from Home Depot) to remove loose paint. Then I bought floor tile and layed that down instead. Anyone can do it, really. Now I don't have to worry about water-it is really nice.

You both need to go over your floor with a scarcifier or concrete grinder. They can be rented at any rental place. Then follow the steps in this article.

My garage floor had sealer put on years ago. The middle area is pitted badly. Will the cleaner mentioned and the pressure wash remove the sealer so coating can be used? Or if this will not remove the sealer, once the cleaner is used can the coating still be used over the part that would still have the sealer on it?

Does this coating need to be sealed in some way to prevent the reoccurence of the pitting? i.e. will the coating hold up in snow areas where salt is an issue.

How can I seal a garage floor that has already been painted with epoxy paint and sealer?
the epoxy is pealing up too. The floor continues to spall and cannot be kept clean.
Is there anything I can do short of digging it all up and replacing it?
