Do Floor Coatings Need Maintenance?

If you are considering an epoxy, polyurethane, or similar floor coating on your floors or you already haveyour floor coated, you may be wondering what kind of maintenance is necessary.

There are a few things you can do to keep your floors in great condition but overall floor coatings generally do not need a whole lot of work to keep them looking good.

  • Minor Spills – If you have a floor coating and you have minor spills or drippings from your vehicle, grab a soft cloth or paper towel and wipe up the spills.
  • Maintenance Cleaning – At least once a year you should consider a maintenance cleaning, you can do this with a soft bristled broom or a commercial dust mop. Ask your local expert what type of cleaning products you should use on your coated floors for yearly cleaning.
  • Heavy Cleaning – If  you have soiled  floors or floors that are in need of a heavy cleaning you can do this using clear ammonia, hot water, and a foam mop. Sweep any debris or dirt away first, then use a gallon of water mixed with four ounces of ammonia.

Please note it is important not to use abrasive cleaning products, vinegar, soap based cleaners or citrus cleaners.

As you can see, caring for your coated floors does not have to be time-consuming.  By wiping up spills and drips as you catch them, you can keep your epoxy flooring clean and shiny.
