3.6 x 6.7 roughly so you may need to buy a few extras

Nice to see you're making a recovery, I have a garage with concrete floor (20 years old). And I'm that OCD I Hoover the dust/debris weekly. I keep looking at flooring and don't know whether to leave it as it is as the concrete then blends into the front drive or go down the carpet tile or rigid floor tile route or just save the money.

You can buy a bike mat from ebay, etc which is carpeted on the topside (choice of bike logos available) and rubber backed so wont soak up moisture.
I gave mine away a couple of months ago

In our previous house we had, the garage was about 15 years old and they had used a particularly iffy kind of concrete on the floor- the kind that seems to generate dust constantly, you know the sort, almost like cement dust being thrown around.

Had enough of it one day, emptied the garage out, hired an industrial vacuum and hoovered it. Got that ronseal concrete treatment stuff. Brushed that on, about £30 a can(?), stuff just seemed to soak into the concrete. Next day no more dust. Day after that, I painted the floor with a kind of floor paint designed for garages. Not the posh vinyl stuff which is smooth but just basic floor paint for concrete floors.

One good coat of that and the floor was diamond. Much smoother to sweep up, no more dust, jobs a good un.

I think you will find Ronseal etc specify that you MUST use a sealant on the floor prior to painting else the dust messes the bonding up?

This is the sealant. It is not cheap but it is totally different to water and PVA I suspect.

For the benefit of others reading.

Take advice always from the paint supplier.

Avoid using high street single pack paints, instead source a two pack epoxy paint.

Then:

1. Acid Etch / Cleaner (as recommended by the paint supplier).
2. Sealant or base Coat (as recommended by the paint supplier).
3. Two Pack Top Coat (paint and hardener).

I painted mine then as it dried fell in luck with some rtek tiles :-)

But at least it'll keep the dust down and leave underneath decent if I ever remove the tiles
