How Do I Clean an Epoxy Floor?

by LSE Library

Epoxy flooring is built to stand the test of time, and with proper maintenance it can provide years of exceptional protection in even the well-trafficked garage. But how do you keep things clean? Here are a few quick cleaning tips for the inexperienced looking to get the most out of their investment.

First things first: Epoxy flooring is a revolutionary way to extend the life of your garage floor by adding a protective coating, and it’s also quite easy to clean if you keep a couple things in mind. Though the coating is non-porous, making it easy to tackle surface stains, you must also keep an eye on debris that can be tracked in from outside. Regular removal of dust and dirt through sweeping, vacuuming or rinsing is a small task that will insure your investment last a long time.
Skip the soap! When cleaning your epoxy floor, never be tempted to use regular household soap. Not only can this create a slippery indoor skating rink effect when mixed with water, but it will also leave behind a filmy residue that can dull the garage floor finish and accumulate over time.

Old school scrubbing: If you so desire, a good old fashioned scrub brush is also an option as long as you choose one with soft, non-abrasive bristles and use an appropriate cleaning compound. Keep in mind that after scrubbing you will have to rinse away the resulting dirt and leftover cleaning solution to ensure there is no damaging residue left behind. We recommend two rinses after scrubbing, and either a quick mop, or squeegee to ensure that your epoxy flooring is shiny and streak free.
