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 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.
