Flooring and Carpeting/Covered patio stained concrete clouding


Hello. I just sealed our stained concrete with Behr wet look water based sealer. There are several cloudy areas plus this sealer is not as shiny as I had hoped. My question is  is there a product that I can apply that will get rid of the clouds and make floor really shiny like a clear epoxy resin?  And can I apply an oil base on top of this water based sealer. I believe an oil based product will give me the shine I am looking for. Thank you!  I really appreciate this service.  Chris

You probable trapped some moisture in your product when sealing, resulting in your cloudy areas. This can happen if your coating is too thick, or if your second coat went on too soon. To remove the cloud you would need to remove that portion of your sealer. To get a better shine you can apply other epoxy or urethane over your finish.  Or you could just apple a few coats of floor wax.
