Concrete is a porous substance, meaning that it can easily absorb water and moisture. If that water or moisture does not dry out, it can cause mold to form. However, when you seal your concrete, you will be preventing water from penetrating the concrete, which can then prevent mold from being created.
2. Your Concrete Will Last Longer
