Keeping It Clean

Garage Floor Epoxy

If you are like us or any other home/property owner, you know just how easy it is for a bare concrete garage floor to become dirty, dusty and stained. When it comes to cleaning the garage floor, you have to buy expensive chemicals just to remove stains and sometimes pressure washers are required to get the garage floor clean. If you are tired of dealing with massive maintenance bills just to keep your garage looking fresh, we know exactly what can help, a garage floor epoxy. Epoxies are a seamless and nonporous solution that is resistant to most of the hazards that would bring dirt into your garage and make it stay there. Down below, you will find out how you can keep it clean with garage floor epoxy.
Why Does Concrete Get Dirty?
Before we talk about how epoxy can keep your garage clean, we need to talk about why your bare concrete gets dirty in the first place. One of the biggest reasons why concrete is so susceptible to stains is the fact that concrete is an extremely porous material, making the passage of liquids incredibly easy. Liquids can pass through these pores, leaving behind pigmentation that feels like are impossible to get out without professional equipment or cleaners. This is also one of the reasons why it is so easy for tire marks to appear on your garage floor. Tires are made of petroleum and when they are on hot surfaces for a long time, they leave behind trails that are resistant to water in the pores of your concrete.
Seamless & Nonporous
One of the biggest advantages of using an epoxy system in your garage is the seamless and nonporous design of the finish. This means no liquids can penetrate its surface to leave a stain. This will keep your concrete protected against oil stains, dropped liquids from your children, and pet stains that could appear out of nowhere. We know that some homeowners tend to use chemicals in the garage as well, but the epoxy is still resistant to the adverse effects of said chemicals being dropped on the floor. This makes stains from battery acid, brake cleaner and other degreasers impossible!
How To Maintain Epoxy
Unlike concrete, epoxy is an incredibly easy material to maintain due to its design. With concrete, you would need pressure washers, harsh chemicals and a whole lot of time. With epoxy, maintenance is simplified and cost-effective. All you will need for the regular maintenance of epoxy flooring is a soft bristle broom or dust mop to remove any of the built-up dust and debris on the surface; if using a textured epoxy, a regular broom or vacuum with a bristle attachment can be used. After the surface has been swept clean, all you need to do is use a standard wet mop paired with a PH neutral cleaner to remove any grime on the epoxies surface. Epoxies will never require the use of waxes or polishes to stay clean, making the maintenance throughout it’s up to 25-year service life an extremely easy and affordable task.
