One of the significant advantages of having epoxy flooring in your garage is its ease of cleaning. When compared to traditional concrete garage floors, epoxy floors almost seem like they clean themselves. Our team at Garage Vision has installed hundreds of residential garage epoxy floors. After we are done, we enjoy informing our customers how to care for the cleaning of the floor. Below are a few things that we share with them.
Light Cleaning Routine
A well-laid epoxy floor is kept with light routine sweeping and mopping. In a garage setting, a dust mop or a small broom will suffice. A simple list of cleaning items required for your epoxy floor would include:
- Dust mop
- pH-neutral cleaner
- Cloths or paper towels
Many of the garage epoxy floorings that we have installed still look great! Don’t take our word for it, just look at some of our reviews. We lay high-quality floors that repel stains. This makes cleaning spills such as oil, paint, grease, and other substances that tend to stain concrete easy to remove. In most instances, liquids can be picked up with pick a paper towel or rag.
Frequently Asked Epoxy Cleaning Questions
Q: How do I remove a rust stain from an epoxy floor?
A: First try to remove the stain with hot water and a cloth towel. If this does not remove all of the stain, use a soft scrubber (like a kitchen dish scrubber) with hot water. Always avoid using abrasives cleaning agents. They can damage the surface coat of the flooring.
Q: Is it okay to use liquid soaps or detergents to clean the floor?
A: These types of cleansers often leave residues that reduce the shine of the epoxy, making the floor appear matted over time. Additionally, when these residues become wet, they create slipping hazards.
