If you have chosen to have an epoxy floor installed in your facility, then we congratulate you! Epoxy coatings are popular flooring choices across a wide variety of industries. Epoxy coatings are easy to clean, durable, and provide an unmatched shine that lights up your facility’s space. Prior to installation, we have a few important steps for you to take to ensure a successful epoxy coating installation.
Step #1: Schedule and Prepare Installation
This all-important step seems like the most simple of all, but in reality it is much more complicated. Installing an epoxy floor means that you must schedule a time when all equipment will be removed from the space and employee traffic can be prohibited, both during the initial installation and while the floor sets. Since most businesses will not completely close down simply for the installation of new flooring, scheduling installation during times least likely to impact the business is important. For large spaces, scheduling the installation in stages over several weeks may be the best option.
Step #2: Remove Dust and Debris
After all equipment has been removed, thoroughly sweep or power blow the concrete floors to ensure you have removed all dust and debris from the floor. This is best done at a time when any additional foot traffic can be prohibited to make certain the floors will be clean and dirt-free when the installers arrive.
Step #3: Remove Oily and Greasy Buildup
If you are planning to have epoxy floors installed in an area where oil and grease have built up on the floor, you will need to address these areas. Use hot water, liquid degreaser, and plenty of heavy manual scrubbing to remove the grime. These areas may need several treatments to thoroughly remove built up grease.
