The Secret to Maintaining Your Concrete

The Secret to Maintaining Your Concrete

Ever feel like every time you clean your concrete surface that it becomes dirty again not long after? It can be nearly impossible to eliminate visual pollutants from attaching themselves to places like your driveway, sidewalks, parking garage, and any other porous material you have. Reason being, you can’t prevent the many things that can affect the surface just by cleaning.

The Benefits of Concrete Sealing

If you’re interested in not only cleaning your concrete surfaces but also KEEPING them clean, then you should consider having these areas sealed. By using a sealant you are having a chemical applied that will help fill the porous surface that concrete has, thus preventing any material from getting in the nooks and crannies. By keeping things from accumulating on the concrete you are decreasing the frequency needed to keep the area looking clean.

Materials commonly built onto concrete:

  1. Moss
  2. Mold
  3. Algae
  4. Dirt
  5. Sand
  6. Rust
  7. Salt
  8. Grease/ Oil

Showcase Enterprise uses a variety of sealants depending on the job we are working on. We have some heavy sealers that seal and color an area making the concrete look like new.  Sealers like this are often used in cleanings where grease/ oil have been removed. We have others that we use strictly for frequent biological buildup like moss, mold, or rust.  At each job the concrete is assessed by our team members and the proper sealant is chosen and approved of accordingly

Taking Care of the Children’s Museum

Taking Care of the Children’s Museum

As residents of the Indianapolis area we take for granted having the world’s largest children’s museum in our backyard. It is one of the many gems our city has to offer. The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis gives fellow Hoosiers a sense of pride in having such a wonderful place to take our children that’s right in our backyard.

Not only does the team at Showcase Enterprise take pride in having a first class museum around the corner, but we also take pride in taking care of and maintaining the exterior of the Children’s Museum. Our business has had the pleasure of working with the museum over the years on various projects targeted to keep the facility looking its best for our community.

Children’s Museum Projects

Some of the projects include:

  • Regular maintenance of the parking garage stairwells.
  • Pressure cleaning the Dinosaur Dome.
  • Cleaning and sealing the Outside Event Tent area to prevent future build ups on its surface.
  • Cleanup of the 30th Bridge.
  • Thorough pressure cleaning of the entire parking garage.

Recent Projects

Most recently this summer, we have kept busy cleaning the Outside Event Tent, Dinosaur Dome, and Parking Garage. Each job is focused on removing “visual pollutants” such as mold, algae, dirt, debris, sand, and so on from the Museum’s exterior surfaces in order to set visitor’s up for a great experience.  With a clean facility the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis can take pride in not only what is inside their building but what’s on the outside as well.

With any job, not just those at the Children’s Museum, Showcase Enterprise goes above and beyond to make sure whatever surface they’re working on for whatever company or individual they are working for is kept “Showcase Clean”.
