Epoxy flooring is ideal for a local business that needs protection and traction. If you operate a restaurant, garage, or laboratory, epoxy flooring can be just the solution you need to keep your employees safe on the job—but how do you keep epoxy floors clean?
Epoxy requires a little extra care when it comes to regular cleaning and maintenance. Our best advice? Take a gentle approach to clean epoxy and avoid using just a causal mop. To be specific, here are 3 ways to properly clean epoxy flooring.
When it’s time to do the daily or nightly chores, don’t use any broom on epoxy. Invest in a soft bristle broom and sweep daily to remove debris before it hardens. Before your business opens, or at night before going home, do a quick sweep of the floor. For residential epoxy flooring, sweep once per week.
When mopping an epoxy floor, avoid the traditional harsh chemicals. Whip up a basic vinegar solution to clean your epoxy flooring. All you have to do is mix together a bottle of 50-50 vinegar and water solution to keep on hand. Mop the floor every few weeks to maintain shine.
Work in a lab with lots of spills? Need to clean up oil ASAP? Don’t panic. Instead, keep soft cleaning towels on hand to blot up spills. Never use harsh cleaning agents or hard-bristle brushes to clean. Why not? Hard bristle brushes and harsh chemicals can run the risk of ruining your epoxy’s top coat—and cost you quite a bit in replacement fees!
