How to Take Care of Commercial Epoxy Flooring

Posted on

Whether you own a gym, a warehouse, or an auto shop, having epoxy flooring is a great way to keep things tidy and looking nice. Epoxy flooring is a type of flooring that is applied as a coating and is essentially sprayed onto concrete to give it a more finished look.

The fun thing about commercial epoxy flooring is that you can pick any style or finish that you want. So, if you want something super masculine, you can choose a finish that's a dark grey and that almost looks like concrete. if you want something more fun and playful, you can go with something that's a light color and that has tons of colorful specs in it.

Once your epoxy flooring is all laid, it's your job to keep it looking as clean and put together as possible. Here's a quick look at how to take care of commercial epoxy flooring. 

1. Sweep Every Day

The tricky thing about any flooring is that the more dirt that gets caked on them, the harder they are to clean. Get into the habit of sweeping the dirt off of your floor every day so that it doesn't stick to it and cause a mess. Try to get in hard-to-reach places as well so that you don't have any build up in them. 

2. Mop with Warm Water and Soap

About once a week or at least once a month, try to mop the floors with a solution that consists of just warm water and soap. You want it to be really sudsy so that it can get all of the dirt off. Also, make sure that you are using a commercial mop because they are better at getting dirt up from the floor. Once the floor is essentially covered in suds, then use a mop soaked in water to clean it up. Allow the flooring to air dry before you step on it at all. 

3. Buff the Flooring

If your flooring is part of an auto shop and you get so much traffic on it, it can be hard to clean off oil and dirt that's stuck on it. Every few months, try using a professional buffer to buff out any dirt or debris that's caked on the floor so that you can get it as clean as possible. Just make sure to go over the flooring a few times in a row to get it extra clean.
