Are you the proud owner of an epoxy garage floor? If so, congratulations! You’ve made a wise choice in flooring material. Especially if you trusted our team here at Durabull Floors to install it. Not only is epoxy durable and easy to clean, but it also has a shiny, polished look that can make your garage the envy of your neighborhood.
But how do you keep that shine looking its best? With a little routine maintenance and some simple tips, you can keep your epoxy garage floor looking like new for years to come. Read on for Durabull’s top tips on how to care for your epoxy floor.
Tips to Make Your Epoxy Resin Floors Shine!
Tip #1: Sweeping, Vacuuming & Dust Removal
Vacuuming or sweeping your floors regularly is an easy way to maintain their resistant-to-grime sheen. This applies especially for epoxy floors, which are well-known for their striking shine and long-lasting durability. Keeping up with your regular maintenance routine will mean no dirt or debris dulls the epoxy’s quality, giving you an invitingly shiny clean floor! Through minimal effort, you can enjoy looking at your beautiful epoxy floors for many years down the line.
Keeping dust and other small debris off your floors will also help strengthen your epoxy resin floor’s natural scratch and abrasion resistance! So besides your floors looking better, they’ll also feel and perform better over time.
Tip #2: Less is More With Mopping
Maintaining a clean and polished floor is important, but finding the right epoxy cleaning solution can be tough. Instead of struggling to find the perfect combination of harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, it’s best to opt for something mild like a detergent and warm water. Not only is this method more cost-effective, but it is also low maintenance and will ensure your floors stay sleek and seamless for years to come!
Luckily for you, epoxy floors’ seamless finish make it a natural enemy to dirt, grime and more. So while you should still mop your floors, epoxy floors help you reduce the amount of time you spend maintaining them! Cleaning either too frequently or with too harsh of chemicals can actually be counterproductive. You might introduce new faults in your floors, chemically damage the epoxy resin foundation, or other issues. So less is more!
Tip #3: Waxing When Necessary
Waxing the floors infrequently can be a great preventative measure to protect indoor surfaces. Not only is infrequent waxing easier to manage than regular cleaning, but it also creates an extra layer of protection. While routine cleaning and occasional scrubbing keeps epoxy floors looking clean and shiny, infrequent waxing will create an extra beautiful gloss finish.
Epoxy floors are naturally incredibly glossy, strong and resistant to scratches and abrasions. This means waxing services are much less necessary than with alternative flooring systems. But, if you’re looking for an extra shine after a long period of use, it may be worth the wax!
