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!

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.
