What You Should Know About Caring For Epoxy Flooring
Deciding to make the transition to epoxy flooring is a wise choice to make. It’s durable, more visually appealing, and is low maintenance upkeep.
Yet, as with any flooring there is some care required, even if it’s just the aftermath of properly cleaning up a spill. The good news is that it’s not very demanding and the even better news is that we’ve given you most of the information you’ll need, right here.
Easy Maintenance For Your Epoxy Floors
The most common request is for garage flooring. Using epoxy for your garage enables you to make this space look better as well as become more user-friendly as a workspace.
Like any surface, it does still require care and maintenance. This includes important tips such as:
- It’s a good idea to keep the surface as free from dirt and grit as possible. This is especially important if you’ll be moving or using heavy machinery or vehicles around. These small particles get embedded and end up scratching the floor’s surface. Over time, lots of little scratches dull the shine and make it look uncared for. Make it a point to sweep or vacuum the floor following any instances where you may have tracked in dirt or grit.
- Quickly clean up spills that could cause damage to the surface, such as oils and chemicals. This includes liquids commonly found on garage floors, such as engine oil, gasoline, or antifreeze. If left there, it could begin to damage the top layers of epoxy.
- Believe it or not, you’ll want to avoid soap-based cleaning agents. The only real reason is that soap can leave a residue and that will make the epoxy surface look hazy. Once you’ve cleaned up spills or dirt, you can use plain hot water for mopping the floors.
- Avoid using bristle brushes, scrubbing sponges, or abrasive cleaners on the surface of your epoxy floors. Like leaving dirt and grit, this will begin to scratch at the surface repeatedly.
