 Industrial Flooring in Nashua, NH: How Often Do Epoxy Floors Need Maintenance?

Nashua, New Hamp­shire is no stranger to the indus­tri­al sec­tor. In fact, the Nashua Cor­po­ra­tion helped put the city on the map with its pro­duc­tion of flop­py disks in the 90s. Today, Nashua’s industrial/​manufacturing sec­tor con­tin­ues to thrive. If you own or man­age an indus­tri­al facil­i­ty in Nashua you want to keep up with the com­pe­ti­tion and keep your work­place up to date; start­ing with your floors.

Epoxy floors are com­mon­ly used in indus­tri­al facil­i­ties for a num­ber of rea­sons. They are strong enough to with­stand the pres­sure and wear of foot traf­fic and heavy machin­ery, they can help pre­vent slips and falls, and they are rel­a­tive­ly easy to clean. Of course, just like any type of floor, indus­tri­al epoxy floor­ing requires prop­er main­te­nance to remain intact. Let us dis­cuss what this main­te­nance entails and how often epoxy floors require maintenance.

What to Know About Epoxy Floor Maintenance

Rou­tine Main­te­nance for Epoxy Flooring

Of all the var­i­ous indus­tri­al floor­ing options you can choose, epoxy floors are among those that require the least main­te­nance. Dai­ly clean­ing is a pri­or­i­ty for all indus­tri­al floors, and for­tu­nate­ly, clean­ing epoxy floors is sim­ple. These floors nat­u­ral­ly resist mois­ture, dust, and oth­er par­ti­cles, so mop­ping, sweep­ing, and scrub­bing them will take less effort than clean­ing a bare con­crete floor or oth­er surface.

If and when chem­i­cals spill onto your epoxy floors, it is best to address the prob­lem imme­di­ate­ly. As durable as this mate­r­i­al is, cor­ro­sive chem­i­cals can still eat away at the paint and the under­ly­ing floor if left alone for too long. To ensure that you tru­ly cleaned all parts of your floors and to remove any stains, per­form a deep­er clean­ing job every few months. Use a non-tox­ic clean­ing solu­tion specif­i­cal­ly for epoxy floor clean­ing to get the job done safe­ly and efficiently.

Larg­er Main­te­nance Tasks

If prop­er­ly cleaned and main­tained on a reg­u­lar basis, your epoxy floors can last for years on aver­age before a new coat of con­crete epoxy or ure­thane is nec­es­sary. As time goes on, you may begin to notice that the floor has lost some of its gloss, and that clean­ing tasks have become more chal­leng­ing and less effec­tive. When this hap­pens, it is prob­a­bly time to invest in a new topcoat.

How­ev­er, if your floors are dam­aged at a deep­er lev­el, a new coat of epoxy alone might not be enough to restore your indus­tri­al floor­ing. In this sce­nario, you may need to invest in con­crete floor repair or replace­ment ser­vices. Some epoxy floor installers can only apply a new coat to your exist­ing floor, while oth­ers may also be able to repair or replace your floor before adding the new coat. In Nashua Kaloutas offers mul­ti­ple indus­tri­al floor­ing ser­vices, includ­ing repair, demo­li­tion, replace­ment, coat­ing, resur­fac­ing, pol­ish­ing, and more.

With prop­er care, your epoxy indus­tri­al floor coat­ings will last for years. But when it is time to update your epoxy floors, or if you require oth­er floor­ing ser­vices, Kaloutas can help.
