How to Maintain Industrial Epoxy Floors
Many facilities are undergoing resurfacing projects with epoxy flooring which are receiving that new surface because they are high traffic areas that withstand a lot of possible damage. These areas can be mechanic shops, hospitals, industrial plants, and more. To keep your floors looking the best they can, you must take good care of them.
So, what can you do to ensure your floors stays looking young? The first thing you can do is keep the floor clean. After a long day of work, it is important to sweep the floors. This will help to remove a good layer of dirt and debris. If mopping the floors is necessary as well, then always start by sweeping and finish with mopping. If chemicals or any other substances spill onto surface, clean it up as soon as possible. Make the sure area is cleansed well using the right type of cleaning products. If the spill is left for too long or if the wrong cleaning product is used, then the finish of your floor might alter. The floor could lose its shine or become dull looking.
If a large project that may cause damage is taking place on a portion of your floors, consider covering it with another material to prevent any type of permanent damage. This is also a good idea if your floors seem to be wearing down in one spot more so than in other spots. Two great options for floor coverings are rubber mats or even carpet runners. The only downside to these options is the fact that they will need to be replaced quite often if they stay in high traffic areas.
The third, and final, option is to treat your floors to a resurfacing project with epoxy. This is the easiest way to protect your floors. It will also cost the least money and save time later. Epoxy is strong enough to withstand almost anything you could throw at it, drop on it, spill on it, etc. Epoxy resists stains, abrasions, and cracks. It does all this after it is applied until it starts to deteriorate 20-25 years later.
Not only that, Epoxy also completely changes the look of your floors. It fills in cracks and holes. It can be built up until the floor is even too. Epoxy flooring of Wayne, PA is really the best flooring option out there. High traffic facilities have raved about how much they love their epoxy floors because they look the same as the first day they had them. It also takes little to no time to clean these floors, and their maintenance is almost non-existent which will save time and money later on down the road.

Really Pleased! Our garage needed some major help – not only was it a mess but the floor was just ugly with all the stains and such. I will agree with the reviewer below – do not go with the cheap imitators! Floorguard not only has a great product, but their installers and service is well worth any extra cost, which is minimal anyway. Our neighbors have commented on how good our garage looks and we’ve recommended them to Floorguard without hesitation.
The garage looks so good! A+ company on every level. Wish I had another garage to resurface!
My neighbor had a floor done by another company that was new to the industry, boy were they sorry. I went with the experts, Floorguard did an incredible job!!

Covering our old, gray garage floor was a great aesthetic and functional improvement. This project requires 2 days: first day preparing the surface (major job requiring right equipment), putting down first coating and sprinkling the flakes. This requires about 4 hours. After this dries, they come back next day and apply the topcoat. They notified us when they would start the work and arrived as promised. They worked diligently, completed the work efficiently, left the work areas and our driveway clean. The owner Steve is a great guy to deal with.

It was a pleasure dealing with the company’s owner Steve Chaloult. When we called him to give us an estimate, he arranged to come within a few days. We have a very large two car garage. His estimate was a bit more than the first company we called but he seemed very well prepared in showing us samples and very knowledgeable about his product and we just liked him. For personal reasons , we had to delay installation for about a month and he could not be more accommodating. we finally we able to have it done this past week and it was worth the wait. The garage floor is just beautiful and I never would have thought I would say that about a garage floor! We also had the lower walls around the floor done and very glad we did. At one time we were thinking we could do this ourselves using a kit. WHAT were we thinking? This is a job for a professional and we are so glad we used Steve.

The owner Steve Chaloult was easy to work with and he’s very good at what he does. I highly recommend Floorguard as your contractor if you’re wanting to have a garage floor finished with a durable epoxy like colored finish. Floorguard came when they said they would and cleaned up after they were finished. Floorguard also installs garage storage cabinets.
