So why do people choose epoxy coating for their garage floors? Well—that’s easy—the garage is most likely the dirtiest place in your house. If you’re like most homeowners, you use your garage to park vehicles, tools, lawn care equipment, recreation toys, and so many other things that don’t belong in the house. Garage floors often get overlooked when cleaning the rest of the house. We completely understand why and we’re here to make your life so much easier. Our trusted flooring contractors are devoted to transforming your garage into a work of art and your new favorite place in the house!
But—how do you clean it? Rather easily, actually.
The biggest benefit to epoxy coating is that dirt is very easily hidden, but just because it’s hidden, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Cleaning up dirt and other loose debris is as simple as sweeping or vacuuming, whichever your preference is.
Do you want a deep clean? Lucky for you, washing your floors is just as easy! All it takes is a standard mop and warm soapy water. That’s it. Even better—you only have to do this a few times throughout the year!
We know what goes on in garages. At least we think we do. We do know that spills, oil drips, mysterious stains, and strange spots that seem to just appear are all expected to take place in a garage, and it’s all easily cleanable. A fresh spill is wiped away effortlessly with a paper towel or cloth.
Rust is no threat to epoxy coated flooring, either. Although, it may take some extra effort to clean. We suggest a kitchen scrubbing pad and hot water. Soft Scrub™ may also work for larger rust issues.
Hosing down the whole floor and squeeging it dry is also an easy—and fun—option!
Epoxy coating is very simple to maintain, and that’s the very reason people choose it as a garage flooring solution. However, be careful to not over-complicate the care you put into preserving your new garage floors. We suggest avoiding cleaners that contain acids like citrus cleaners or vinegar. Some soap-based cleaners leave a residue that minimizes the glossy finish and will become extra slippery when the floor is wet. With that said, adding welcome mats at entryways will help to dry off wet, snow-covered shoes before stepping onto the epoxy finish and avoiding a fall.
