Many people think that epoxy flooring takes a lot of time and energy to maintain the pristine looking coating. However, the truth is, maintenance of epoxy flooring is pretty simple and almost anyone can do it! Epoxy creations has become a popular trend in recent years. Whether you have epoxy flooring in your business office, warehouse, garage floor, regular maintenance will help your epoxy last for decades while still keeping that new floor look!
Here are some useful tips for maintaining your epoxy flooring!
Epoxy flooring is tough, resilient, and very durable. Epoxy is a flooring options for places with heavy machinery and large tools are being stored! As these tools, machines, or vehicles are being used, dirt and grit can accumulate. If left there, the dirt and grit can scratch the flooring. It is smart to remove the sand and dirt regularly, by either sweeping, mopping, or a shop vacuum. A dust mop works well for this. When vacuuming, it works better to use a soft brush attachment, which will help gather all the dust and dirt!
When cleaning or mopping your epoxy flooring, make sure to avoid using soap-based cleaners. These can leave residues on the epoxy flooring, which can damage the surface. A scrubbing brush is probably your best bet when trying to get rid of a stain or spill. Since epoxy flooring is water-resistant, it should be pretty easy to clean up a liquid spill!
Oil and car chemicals that spill on an epoxy floor, such as antifreeze and oil, can be easily wiped up with a shop towel or paper towel, in which you want to dispose of properly. If there is a remaining stain, mopping over the spot with warm water should get the job done!
If your epoxy flooring requires a deep clean, you want to start by vacuuming or sweeping away any dust, gritt, or grime. After that is done, mop the entire floor with warm water and ammonia. The ammonia use should only be 4-5 ounces per gallon of water, and it’ll do the trick!
Lastly, it is not a bad idea to have a welcome mat and/or rug area to cover your epoxy flooring near entrances. These rugs will help eliminate the amount of dust and dirt that gets tracked in. This is especially essential during snowy weather, as snow is very easy to track indoors.
