How to Clean & Maintain Your New Floors

To keep your floor in good condition, you should provide at least modest upkeep. Even though they are low-maintenance, they should be cared for with common sense. We have included the best procedures for caring for your epoxy floors in this page.

Keep the surfaces dirt and grit free.

This is especially important when moving machines or vehicles on and off the floor. If dirt and grit are allowed to accumulate, they could embed in or damage a resin floor. It’s a good idea to remove all sand or debris on a regular basis because, while resin floors are resistant, they can show damage from repetitive scratches over time. The best tool for the job is a shop vacuum with a soft brush attachment. The frequency with which you vacuum depends on how much dirt and grit is tracked onto the floor. While moving heavy machinery over the floor, take additional care to ensure the surface is dust and grit free.

Avoid using soap-based cleaners.

Soap based floor cleaners leave a haze on the resin flooring that accumulates over time. Resin flooring does not require soap; a good mop or deck-scrubbing brush would suffice. If you need more scrubbing force, use gentle soap to help deal with the tougher messes.

Spot Cleaning.

Often, only a tiny area of the floor where something has been spilled or tracked in needs to be vacuumed or swept. The spilt liquid should be sucked up, along with any dirt and grime, with a shop vac, and the surface should be cleaned with a mop and warm water. When liquid accidents occur, resin flooring is very water resistant and relatively easy to clean.

Heavily soiled epoxy floors.

The following is the best approach to cleaning a dirty resin floor: Carefully sweep and vacuum the entire area. Remove everything that is in the way of getting to the floor. After you’ve cleaned all of the surface dirt, filth, and grit, use a hard foam mop and warm/hot water to remove any remaining dirt. After that, you can mop with a clear ammonia/water mixture (about 2-3 ounces of ammonia per gallon of hot water).

Stains

Rust, for example, requires a quick scrub with a kitchen scouring sponge or a soft deck brush and warm water. Steel wool and abrasive substances should be avoided. A soft scrub and an abrasive scrubbing pad or brush are recommended. Never use any cleaning products that

contain citrus or acid. Citrus cleansers and vinegar are known to degrade the resin catalyst and should be avoided.

Oil, car chemicals, and other chemicals.

Clean up antifreeze, oil, and other automotive chemicals using shop towels or a paper towel and properly dispose of them. The key to dealing with car spills is to not let them sit on the floor for too long. Even engine oil contains compounds that could be harmful to a resin floor. Spilled gas should be cleaned up immediately since it will damage the surface of a resin floor if left for too long. Paint, household cleaners, and other abrasive liquids must be cleaned up as soon as possible. Wipe them down with shop towels as soon as a spill occurs.
