What Cleaner Do I Used?

To simplify your cleaning process, it's recommended to use neutral cleaners like Simple Green. The type of cleaning chemical you should use depends on the level and type of soil or contamination present. It's always best to begin with the mildest possible cleaner and gradually increase the strength as needed. Start by diluting water with a pH neutral (pH 7.0) or slightly alkaline non-residual detergent, then rinse the floor with clean water. Finally, follow up with a wet vacuum or squeegee to drain while complying with equipment and local regulations.

Heavy Cleaning

If you have a stubborn stain on your epoxy floor, don't worry - there are ways to clean it up. Whether you didn't get to cleaning right away or you have a spill that's left a mark, we recommend using a medium stiff brush to scrub the area with a neutral cleaner. If you find that the stain still won't come up with a neutral cleaner, you can try increasing the strength of the solution. For particularly tough stains, products like Spray Nine and Krud Kutter can be effective, but it's important to rinse the area thoroughly. The build up can cause slippery areas and hazing of the epoxy over time.

Can I Paint Over It?

While it may be tempting to add some lines or markings to your epoxy floor, we advise against it. One of the benefits of having an epoxy floor is that it is designed to resist sticking, making it easy to clean. In a very short time, they will peel up. However, if you do want to add lines or markings, we would be happy to provide you with an estimate for the cost.

Can I use a Powerwasher?

If you're wondering whether you can power wash or pressure wash your epoxy floor, the answer is yes! However, it's important to follow a few guidelines to avoid damaging the surface. First, do not use water that is over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, as this can cause damage. It's also recommended to use a pressure between 1200-2000 PSI. While it might be tempting to wash your car on the epoxy floor, we advise against it. There are special products and systems designed specifically for car washes that are better suited for the job. By following these guidelines, you can safely and effectively clean your epoxy floor using a pressure washer.

Oh no there is a Spill! What do I do?

Epoxy floors are known for their resistance to chemicals, making them a great choice for homes where spills and stains are common. Your epoxy floor is designed to resist chemicals like gas, motor oil, and bleach. However, it's important to clean up any chemical spills as soon as possible to prevent staining. While the epoxy is resistant to these chemicals, they can still cause discoloration if left unwashed. If you do have a chemical spill, simply follow the standard cleaning instructions to clean it up and prevent any damage to the surface.
