If I paint my basement floor will it make it easier to clean/sweep? The original surface is protected with old rugs.
...old ugly rugs
I think it will because paint will make it smooth. Sweeping a smooth floor will be easy. You can also use a smooth paint finish to smoothen the rough parts. If it is possible, get the rugs out first.
It will, but you have to make sure you do all the preparation right for the paint to stick properly.
My dad painted his floor and it started to chip with wear. I wouldnt
You don't use paint. There is a epoxy that can be used for floors that tough, long lasting and looks good too. You need to find a paint store and the floor need to be prepared.
It's not worth the binding agent and paint. Yes it will chip and get beat up. Not worth your $$ or time
