Epoxy floors are simple cleaning. Epoxy floors NJ are preferred for garages since they’re easier to clean. There are mainly 3 types of cleaning and the supplies to go along with it – general maintenance, deep cleaning, and cleaning stains.
The easiest way to keep the maintenance low-effort is to mop up once a week. Use a soft mop for a gentle cleaning to avoid scratching the epoxy coating.
Use a vacuum to clean off any construction joints or saw cuts. The best way is to use the vacuum’s crevice tool attachment hose once a month.
Most liquids left sitting too long on the epoxy floor can cause damage. Clean any spills quickly with a towel or soft fabric.
Every three months.
On top of the general cleaning, your epoxy floors can be maintained well with a deep cleaning once every three months.
Mixing Cleaning solution.
Ammonia, when prepared with water, is quite effective for epoxy floors. Mix 1⁄2 cup or 120 ml of ammonia into a gallon of hot water. Next, get a hard foam mop and dip it into the cleaning solution, ring it out, and use it to clean the floor.
Rinse the floor
Now use a bucket of warm water and the hard foam mop to do the same. To finish up, dry the floor with a towel.
Spray a stronger cleansing solution of ammonia over areas with spots. Then use a brush with stiff nylon bristles to scrub. Finish up by washing the area with a little water and finish by drying it with a towel.
Clean the floor with a lactic acid-based cleanser to deal with rust stains.
You make a solution of 1 part warm water and 1 part lactic acid cleanser. Use the solution by applying directly to the area, scrub with a regular scrub brush and finish by washing the area with cold water.
Note: The cleanser should not sit on your epoxy floor for more than 1-2 minutes.
Tire marks should be dealt with right away since they become harder to clean as time goes by. Remove tire marks from an area by saturating it in concreted degreasing product and letting it sit for about 10 minutes. Thoroughly scrub the tire marks with the stiff bristle nylon brush. If this fails, apply the degreaser again. After the tire marks are gone, wash the area with a little water and dry it with a towel.
