Epoxy Floors for just about anywhere!
Epoxy floors are very easy to clean with the following steps:
1. Keep the surfaces dirt and grit free
Dust Mop at least once a week. Dirt and grit will embed or scratch an epoxy floor if allowed to remain there. It’s a good idea if you remove all dirt on a regular basis because even though Epoxy floors are tough, they can start to show the damage from multiple scratches over time. Best way to do that is to use a vacuum with a soft brush attachment. How often you vacuum depends on how much dirt is tracked onto the floor. When it comes time to move heavy machinery across the floor, take extra precautions to ensure the surface is dust and grit free.
2. Avoid using soap-based cleaners
Soap-based floor cleaners leave a haze on the epoxy flooring that builds up over time. Epoxy floors do not need soap. Warm water and a good mop or deck-scrubbing brush should be just fine. If you need extra scrubbing power use something like soft soap to aid you with the tougher spills.
3. Spot Cleaning
Often you only need to vacuum or sweep a small area of the floor where something has been spilled or tracked in. The liquid that has been spilled needs to be vacuumed up along with any dirt and grime with a shop vac and then clean the area with a mop and warm water. Epoxy floors are highly water resistant and very easy to clean when liquid spills occur.
4. Full floor clean
The best way to clean up a dirty epoxy floor is as follows: Sweep and vacuum the entire area carefully. Once you have removed all the surface dirt, use a hard foam mop and warm/hot water to get rid of all the built-up dirt. After that, you can use a clear ammonia/water mix (at 4-5 ounces ammonia per gallon of hot water) for second mopping.
Some stains, such as rust, need to be lightly scrubbed with a kitchen scrubbing sponge or a soft deck brush and warm water. Avoid using steel wool or harsh chemicals like comet, they are too abrasive. Use soft-scrub and a moderately abrasive scrubbing pad or brush. Don’t ever use any cleaning compounds with citrus or acid in them. Citrus cleaners will break down the epoxy catalyst and must be avoided. Hard water stains can occur if water gets under the garage door and is allowed to dry.
How long does it take to install an epoxy floor? Typical installations that do not require a moisture barrier take 2 days. On the first day they will grind the floor, install epoxy base & flake the floor. They will return on the 2nd day to clear finish the floor.
When can I move items back on the floor?
You should give it a solid 3 days after the floor is complete to cure before moving items back on the floor. As for driving vehicles on a garage floor - it is recommended to wait 2 - 3 weeks before driving on it.
That depends on the extent of damage. If it is some staining and small cracks - we can repair that quickly before the install. If you have severe cracking or water damage, you will have to get that repaired by a professional before we could do the epoxy floor.
