Title: 12 Tips for Maintaining Epoxy Flooring


1
FOR MAINTAINING
Whether you have professional epoxy coatings for
your garage, basement, porch, sunroom or pole
barn, the maintenance and usage tips are usually
the same. A couple items below may only pertain
to harder use applications though
2
1
For minor spills or vehicle drippings, simply
wipe them up with a paper towel or other soft
cloth.
3
2
Routine maintenance cleaning is best achieved
with either a soft bristle broom or a blue
commercial dust mop.
4
3
For heavy cleaning of a soiled epoxy floor sweep
away any loose debris and then mop floor with a
hard foam mop, hot water and clear ammonia. Four
to five ounces of ammonia per gallon of water is
all that is needed to adequately remove soiling.
5
4
Some winter road pre-treatment compounds leave
a hazy film on the floor coatings after cleaning.
This can normally be removed with hot water and
a deck (found at most hardware stores).
Continuous rinsing may be required to keep the
compounds from drying onto new areas of the
floor.
6
5
Some stains (including rust) may require light
scrubbing with a kitchen scrubbing pad. If you're
unable to remove with just hot water, we
recommend using Soft Scrub. Do not use Comet or
other abrasive cleaning chemicals on the coatings.
7
6
If desired, the floor can be hosed out and
squeegeed dry
8
7
Do not use any cleaner that contains acids
(citrus cleaners or vinegar) or soap-based
cleaners. Soap based cleaners leave a residue on
the floor that not only detracts from the shine,
but also become increasingly slippery should the
floor get wet.
9
8
Use a walk-off mat (welcome mat) inside any entry
door to assist removal of snow and water from
the bottoms of shoes when entering the garage.
Longer mats may be required during winter
weather.
10
9
Place a computer mouse pad under a motorcycle
kickstand to prevent damage to the coatings
surface.
11
10
Ensure all areas are clean before lifting heavy
loads with rolling jacks.
12
11
Place pieces of half-inch plywood under jack
stands when bearing heavy loads.
13
12
Use a welding mat when welding above the
coatings.
