Tips for Maintaining Your Epoxy Flooring

There are many advantages to choosing epoxy flooring for your garage, one of them being how incredibly easy it is to keep clean. Follow these simple tips to ensure your epoxy floor system continues to look fantastic:

For Small Spills: Minor spills or drippings from your vehicle can be very easily wiped up with a paper towel or soft cloth.

For Debris Cleanup: Dust and dirt will not stick to your epoxy floor, so a few minutes a week with a dust mop will take care of most of your debris cleanup.

For Heavy-Duty Cleaning: Every few months it is a good idea to do a more thorough cleaning of your epoxy-coated floor. A hard foam or microfiber mop should do the trick, and make sure you are frequently rinsing and wringing the mop as you go.

For Tire Mark Removal: Tire marks should be removed as soon as possible, as they can be more difficult to get rid of the longer they sit. To remove these marks, soak the area for a few minutes with a cleaner like Simple Green or a concrete degreaser. After soaking, use a stiff bristle nylon brush to remove the tire marks.

Things to Avoid when Cleaning Your Coated Floors: Citrus cleaners and vinegar should be avoided when cleaning your epoxy floor system. Both of these cleaners contain acids that can de-gloss your floors.

One of the many advantages of epoxy flooring is how easy it is to clean, so keeping your epoxy-coated floor looking beautiful will be a breeze with these tips!
