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.

General Maintenance

Mop

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.

Vacuum

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.

Clean spills

Most liquids left sitting too long on the epoxy floor can cause damage. Clean any spills quickly with a towel or soft fabric.

Deep Cleaning

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 12 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.

Removing Stains

Scrub

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.

Rust stains

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

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.

Avoid

  • Using vinegar or citrus oil since they damage epoxy floors.
  • Soap cleansers or soap because they make epoxy floors slippery.
  • Parking any vehicle for extended periods on epoxy floors unless the tires are on top of a carpet or piece of cardboard.
