Cleaning and Maintenance for Flex-Core Epoxy and Polyaspartic Floor Coating Systems

March 27, 2018

 

 

Epoxy and polyaspartic floor coatings, are aesthetically pleasing, long lasting, and come with a long life span when installed properly (Our Installation Process). It is very easy to clean and maintain an epoxy coating—and the ease of maintenance is often the primary reason why people choose an epoxy coating to upgrade their concrete garage floor. 

 

By performing general maintenance, doing a thorough (heavy) cleaning every few months, and removing stains as needed, you can keep your epoxy floors in excellent shape with a beautiful shine for years to come.  

 

Sweep Regularly:

Sweep the floor either with a soft bristle broom or microfiber dust mop regularly. By removing dust and loose debris, you’ll keep the floor free of scratches and reduce wear and tear.

 

Spot Cleaning:

For small spills or vehicle drippings on your coating, simply wipe them with a paper towel or soft cloth. It is recommended to wipe any liquid off as soon as possible. Some stains, like rust, may require some elbow grease and hot water.

 

Heavy Cleaning:

For heavy cleaning of a soiled epoxy floor, sweep away any loose debris, then mop floor using a foam or microfiber mop, with hot water and clear ammonia. 4-5 ounces of clear ammonia per gallon of water is all that is needed to remove soiling. Rinse frequently.

 

Alternatively, you can use your hose with a pressure nozzle to spray the floor and a floor squeegee to move the dirty water off of the garage floor and on to the driveway.

 

Prevention:

Protecting your floors is more than just cleaning—you need to safeguard them as well. Although our Flex-Core floor coating system is highly durable, it is not indestructible. 

 

Always avoid dragging or sliding heavy equipment or pallets across the floor.

 

Place a soft mat or towel below any equipment (such as a jack), which will bear a heavy load. Any sharp edges combined with this weight may dig into or scratch your coating.

 

Place a computer mouse pad under a motorcycle kick-stand to prevent damage to the coatings surface.   

 

Avoid using abrasive/acidic cleaners and stiff bristle brushes as they can potentially damage your coating.

 

Avoid using soap based cleaners as they may cause your coating to lose its shine and make for a much more slippery surface especially when wet.

 

Repair: Should a scratch, gauge or cut in the coating occur it is important treat them as soon as they are noticed. Be sure to check in with us for the best way to fix the issue.

 

By following these simple cleaning and maintenance tips your epoxy floor coating will look like new for many years.
