How to Apply the Kennel Kit

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 idea.

You can view detailed instructions online or download pdf's. Click on links on right side. Thorough instructions are 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.

Just remember:

*** 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
With the time and money you are saving by using the Kennel Kit this step really is a breeze.

1. Application tools to use (click photo below for larger image)

2. "Calibrate" the application rate

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 larger image.

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 material.

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.

3. Duct tape over drains before applying the product so it doesn't just run down the drain.
