Epoxy flooring is one of the most reliable flooring systems that is convenient and has a beautiful appearance when maintained properly. Being able to keep it in good condition is key.
Is there a secret to maintaining my floor’s like-new appearance?
There are a few steps that can assist in the maintenance of your epoxy floors:
Sweeping the floor every day with a soft broom or dust mop can keep dust and other debris off the floor.
Scrubbing the floor with an automatic scrubber on a regular basis makes a difference. Use a mild detergent to go over the floor weekly, or use heavy duty detergent for spot cleaning.
- Quickly clean spills
When you have minor spills or fluids from a vehicle, it is best to wipe them up quickly to avoid staining. Use a soft cloth or paper towel.
- Use mats
Using mats in certain areas will assist in keeping debris from gathering. Mats around doors and other areas where dust or debris from the bottom of shoes can collect.
Does using too much detergent make a difference?
Yes. If you use the wrong type of detergent you will cause a film build-up over time. When scrubbing the floor, it is best to use a non-alkaline, gentle cleanser.
How long should my epoxy flooring last?
Epoxy flooring can last for many years. The longevity of your floor is largely dependent on following the steps of maintenance, and planning for a re-coating every few years to keep the shine at optimal levels. This is one of the best solutions you could consider for your space, especially if you have high levels of traffic. Making sure you use the right floor protection when using heavy equipment or items that can damage the floor is also a priority. Once your epoxy floors are installed, they will enhance the look, feel and environment of your organization.
