Enclosed Basement?

This question is from 64 oz. Clean N-Etch Etching Solution
Asked by
Kalispell, MT

August 13, 2015
We have a 1200 sq ft fully enclosed sealed basement, the instructions state to use a strong jet of water to rinse, however how can I achieve that? I have nowhere for the water to even go and don't want to flood the basement?

There is one tiny floor drain, but with open lumber and exposed insulation, electrics, furnace etc. I don't think that would be appropriate.

Any suggestions would be really appreciated, thanks!

Dear Gray,
Here are our instructions for Clean-n-Etch application:
Working a 10 ft. x 10 ft. section at a time, dampen surface
with water, then apply Clean-N-Etch with a pump sprayer
or watering can. Using a stiff-bristled broom, scrub solution
into surface until foaming action stops. Rinse surface
thoroughly with a strong stream of water, scrubbing while
rinsing to ensure removal of all material.

thoroughly with a strong stream of water, scrubbing while
rinsing to ensure removal of all material. Surface should feel
rough (like 150 grit sandpaper). When dry, check surface
by applying a few drops of water. Water should penetrate
quickly – if not, re-etch affected area. Allow surface to dry
thoroughly before applying paint or stain. Note: Smooth
troweled concrete (i.e., carports, garage and basement
floors) generally requires 2 applications to achieve a proper
profile.

If the floor has some glue still left do I need this before painting with garage floor paint?

June 11, 2014
The people who lived our house before us removed the parquet floor and didnt get all the glue up and we want to use garage paint on the floor because we have three BIG dogs. Do we need to "even it out" before we paint it or will the garage floor paint do that? Its alot of glue thats left, its very small areas but the floor is not completely smooth. If we need to even it out can we use this to do that?

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as Seal Krete states I thought I had my concrete ready for stain until I sprayed water on it and found that it did not soak in all over. I purchased the Clean N-Etch and mixed 1 to 1 as instructions state. It worked perfectly. I did go over mine on the heavy side but it did great. This and all etching solution say you must scrub with a stiff push broom or scrub brush. Hard work but if you put some elbow grease in it this product works very well and for the price it is hard to beat. Would highly recommend this product. June 21, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't bother Coverage isn't anywhere near what the label claims. If you watch the video, the foaming action is nothing like what is shown. It says it's a concentrate, and will cover 400 sq ft, ha, more like 100 sq ft, and then it requires a second application. Never did get to the 150 grit roughness either. Worked better once I pressure washed the slab (new concrete by the way). I went thru 3 half gallons got less than half the job done (24' x 36' area). Won't waste my money again. November 1, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product I used it to clean concrete floors inside the house and it clean very well. I used 1 to 1 water ratio and it cleaned the concrete nicely before sealing it. March 25, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it is supposed to do, instructions are not good After having used another product, I thought this was citrus based like it was, making it a good choice for basement usage. The description was vague, but said was not harmful and most likely it is not, however, it messed with our sinuses, big-time. Another thing was that info says that it does 200 sf, but when you read the bottle, it says to not water it down that much, if you want it to work. That is wrong, we watered it down to cover that area and it worked just fine. Also, instructions were apparently for a rough driveway as it says to get surface as rough as 100 grit paper, huh? What if you are doing a basement floor or garage floor? Never seen one that rough and hope not to. Since we had used the other brand, we had a good idea of how to use and all turned out well.
