How to Apply the
The Concrete Remedy Kennel Solution
is a simple three step process to completely take care of
the concrete floors and runs of your kennel.
First, I will take you through the
application procedures as an overview so you get the general

also included on package labels.
Step 1: Clean It
The first step is to thoroughly clean and disinfect the
concrete. This can be done with a garden hose and your choice
of cleaner and disinfectant. Be sure to thoroughly rinse
off the concrete. You don't need to wait for the concrete
to dry before moving on to Step 2.
Deep Seal can be applied to damp concrete.
You just do not want to put it on when there is standing
water or puddles as that would dilute the product.
Concrete Remedy DS is a deep penetrating
sealant and has to be able to soak into the concrete
floor of your kennel.
If previous waterproofers or paint prevent
the penetration of DS, the old material must be removed
prior to applying DS. Please contact me for detailed help
in removing old failed finishes/sealers if you need more
help than you find at Fix
Old Concrete .
If the concrete has never been coated or
sealed, the required cleaning is just to get the dust and
dirt out of the pores so the Deep Seal can soak in well.
*** It is important to test
your kennel floor to ensure that the Concrete Remedy
Kennel Solution will soak in and work to its full potential.
To test, simply pour a little water on
it to see if it soaks in. If it does, then Concrete Remedy
DS will too and you can take advantage of all of its benefits.
If the water does not soak in after a few minutes, then
the concrete has probably been previously sealed.
Step 2: Deep Seal It with DS
Now it's time to stabilize the concrete and fill the internal
microscopic pores of the concrete with Concrete Remedy DS.
It can be sprayed or even just poured on and spread around
with a push broom. Concrete Remedy DS is permanent, so you'll
never have to apply another coat to the slab. When it comes
into contact with the alkali in the concrete it forms an
aero gel that moves deep into the concrete via capillary
action. When this gel dries, it sets up hard like glass
inside the concrete.
Step 3: Top Seal It
The last step to eliminating the dangers in your dog's kennel
floor! Be sure to wait till the concrete is thoroughly dry
(let it dry at least 24 hours, or longer in humid climates).
Now it's time to seal the surface layer of
the concrete with Concrete Remedy Top Seal (TS). You apply
it the same way you applied the Concrete Remedy DS. Once it's
dry, your dog will be protected from bacteria, mold and mildew
growth and his home will be much easier to keep clean.
Concrete Remedy DS (Step 2) is best applied
to damp concrete. But applying to dry concrete also works
fine. Whatever, is most convenient for you... just do not
apply to concrete with water standing on it.
Concrete Remedy TS (Step 3) MUST be applied on DRY concrete.
Step 4: Go Enjoy Yourself

2. "Calibrate" the application
Do this before you start applying if you have
a large area to do. The idea is to apply one gallon of product
to a marked area of 150 sq. ft. Click picture below for
Then you can see what a rate of 150 sq. ft
per gallon looks like when it is on the concrete. This is
an important step so you don't apply too little or too much
Below is what the area should look like when
the product (either Deep Seal or Top Seal) has been evenly
applied at a rate of one gallon per 150 sq. ft.
