 4 Tips for Protecting and Maintaining Your Epoxy Coated Floor

If you have been fol­low­ing our blog for any length of time, or maybe are catch­ing up on arti­cles now, you prob­a­bly have gath­ered that we are big fans of epoxy floor sys­tems. They’re strong, attrac­tive, and can be cus­tomized to meet the spe­cif­ic needs of a vari­ety of indus­tries. They can find a hap­py, pro­duc­tive home every­where from lab­o­ra­to­ries to hos­pi­tals to garages.

But, as tough and resilient as they are, your epoxy sys­tem still needs a lit­tle TLC to make sure it per­forms just as well, and as long, as possible.

What Is Epoxy Floor­ing Used For?

Epoxy floor­ing is ide­al for most indus­tri­al or com­mer­cial spaces. If installed prop­er­ly, it’s resis­tant to mois­ture, mold, and mildew: heavy foot traf­fic and equip­ment; chem­i­cal spills, and more. It’s so pop­u­lar in com­mer­cial facil­i­ties because it can last for decades if prop­er­ly main­tained. Main­te­nance is sim­ple, with a quick clean every few days to once to a week, depend­ing on the pro­duc­tion process­es of your facil­i­ty. Addi­tion­al­ly, it’s aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleas­ing and has mul­ti­ple style selec­tions, giv­ing your cus­tomers the impres­sion that you care about the way your busi­ness looks and that you’re a ven­dor worth work­ing with.

What Are the Best Ways to Extend the Life of Your Epoxy Floor?

These tips are a good place to start:

  • On a dai­ly basis — Give your floors a sweep or vac­u­um. Espe­cial­ly if your oper­a­tions cre­ate grit or small objects that will be ground into the sub­strate under foot, remov­ing these lit­tle haz­ards lessens the wear on your floor.
  • On a week­ly basis - Invest a lit­tle time in mop­ping and scrub­bing. Beyond keep­ing the floor healthy, this also has the nat­ur­al ben­e­fit of allow­ing it to look its best.
  • Avoid unnec­es­sary wear - If you or your team has the option of car­ry­ing an item rather than drag­ging it, that’s always the best route to take. Epoxy is very resis­tant to gouges and scratch­es, but repeat­ed, unnec­es­sary wear is good to avoid.
  • Be proac­tive - While your epoxy floor is slow to stain, you can keep that healthy shine through­out its life by clean­ing up drips, leaks, and spills as soon as possible.

Your floors will thank you for the care by con­tin­u­ing to be a stress-free, low-main­te­nance option that serves you well for years to come.
