The company that is doing my garage floor says their machinery won't fit down my basement stairs, so I'll have to go to Plan B for refinishing the raw concrete floor in my laundry room. There are some cool finishes that look like liquid metal; that may look cool with metallic gray appliances. I'm concerned about fumes and whatnot in an enclosed space with limited airflow in the basement...don't want to kill myself while I'm working on the floor.

Anybody here have success(or failure) with concrete refinishing?

Check out the concrete floor treatment for garages. Water based epoxy!

I don't imagine it needs to be nearly as sturdy as the garage floor...these guys are doing the garage:

I'm also wondering how to keep it neat around the furnace and water heater.

How big is the room? If you're worried about fumes, paint small areas at a time.

You may have to prep the surface all at once though.

Do they have great prices or just ideas for you to take home and research better prices on?

How about doing it with the good stuff and helping the ventilation with some fans or if your really worries get a 3M Mask that'll filter organics

I'm not a professional by any means, but here's what I did..

In my garage and in my basement I used solvent based rustoleum epoxyshield (link) ... There are no words for how strong the fumes were. In my garage I used pink p2097 filters in the link below, which was a bad move. They worked, but they also absorbed some of the fumes or something, because the next time I put the mask on I could strongly smell the epoxy fumes.

3m p2097 filters

The basement was a whole nother ballgame. The windows don't open, just one central air vent. I think I calculated my basement at around 600-700sq feet. I decided to do some more research on filters before doing the basement, and decided on the filters below when I did the basement, they worked great.

3m 6001 filters
http://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/al...0292&rt=rud

http://a.co/i0XR4xK

I don't know if it's the solvents or voc's that gave the epoxy the strong odor..
The epoxy I used had these as the solvents "N-butanol, methyl isobutyl ketone, xylene". VOC's were 2.08lbs/gal

I also used a clear coat in the garage and in the basement. Valspar in the garage, low voc rustoleum in the basement. From what I remember, I think the grey epoxy smell lingered for a long time, at least 3 days. The low voc rustoleum clear smell went away after about 12 hours I think.

I'd imagine rustoleums basement epoxy shouldn't smell for too long, since it's designed to be used inside a home. Either way, I can't offer a lot of advice, except there is no way I would ever do this type of job without a mask, and the 6001 filters are generally what I now use when painting. It's unbelievable how well they worked in my basement, I could not smell a thing.

I have used Rustoleum Garage floor Epoxy and it did not smell too bad indoors on bare concrete . It was no worse than a latex paint smell and lasted less than a day .

Valspar just reformulated their floor paint and I used it on my brothers basement floor with excellent results . At less than $30 per gallon it is a good deal . Just look for the new version with polyurethane included on the can .
