How to Clean Your Epoxy Coated Floors | Spectrum Painting

How to Clean Your Epoxy Coated Floors

After a harsh New Jersey winter, your epoxy coated garage floor will most likely need a good cleaning. To extend the life of your epoxy coated floors, always sweep away debris and spot clean any spills as soon as possible. We also recommend a more thorough cleaning at least twice a year, during the spring, summer or fall, when temperatures allow you to leave the garage door open for your floor to air dry. To clean your epoxy coated floor, we recommend the following:

  1. Sweep the floor to remove any loose dirt or debris.
  2. Pour the recommended amount of a gentle detergent and warm water into a bucket based on the manufacturer's instructions.
  3. Dip the mop into the bucket and wring it out so that the mop is damp, not wet.
  4. Mop the floor.
  5. For heavily soiled floors, it may be necessary to change the detergent and water mixture several times.
  6. After cleaning the entire floor, empty and rinse the bucket and wring out the mop.
  7. Fill the bucket with fresh water and mop the floor a second time to rinse away the cleaning solution.
  8. Allow the floor to air dry.

Special Note: The -8 flooring systems that we install are high in chemical resistance, but always use caution when introducing new cleaners to the floor. It is suggested to test a small, inconspicuous area of the floor to ensure that the cleaner will not harm the surface. See the chemical resistance chart to the right for more information.
