What’s a good penetrating sealer to protect a concrete floor from dog urine?

C8gVUTPoqE | Posted in GBA Pro Help on

What is the best penetrating sealer for use on a polished concrete floor in terms of resistance to chemicals, specifically to urine (from dogs)?

I am having an existing concrete floor polished. I need the floor to be as resistant to dog urine as possible.
My contractors want to use Retropel, but they can provide no data on chemical resistance.

    Try sealgreen polished concrete sealer it prevents oil, water and vinigar penetration into polished concrete. it has not been tested for pet urin but if you are willing to do a small test we will send you a sample of the product.

    Any way to confine the dog(s) to a small area and build something to keep the urine away in the first place?

    I don't want to confine the dogs to a small area. my house is their house. however, if I will be away for more than a few hours and there is the possibility of urine remaining on the floor for extended hours I can put the dogs in other rooms.

    Mike Hernandez: I could not find the sealgreen polished concrete sealer on your website.
