In the commercial, industrial and residential applications, epoxy floor coating makes a durable, long-lasting and beautiful finish for any concrete floor. It is also surprisingly easy to maintain, which is why it is becoming the flooring of choice for both commercial and residential properties.
Epoxy floors can be found in warehousing, production and manufacturing areas, in car dealership showrooms, as well as in garages all around Nashville. What all of these places have in common is they can be heavy traffic areas with equipment, vehicles and human traffic all playing a factor.
One of the most amazing things about professionally installed and industrial quality epoxy floor coating is that is virtually a maintenance free flooring option. This is very different that stained and polished concrete or tile floors that need continual polishing and sealing to maintain their shiny surface.
With the epoxy flooring, the thicker protective coat gives a lustrous finish combined with an anti-skid surface. It is resistant to spills and stains, and most messes can be wiped off with a soft cloth and warm water.
One simple task that will help to keep the floor looking like-new is to dry mop, sweep or vacuum the area as needed. In heavy traffic areas or where there is a lot of dust, grit, or debris on the floor, this may need to be done daily. In less frequently used places, it may be once or twice a week.
As with any Nashville flooring option, occasional washing will be needed to keep the epoxy floor coating shiny and bright looking. For light cleaning, just use warm water. A pH neutral, non-abrasive cleaner can be used in warm water and applied with a microfiber mop for more heavily used indoor areas, or it can be simply sprayed with a hose in garage bays or other similar locations.
After the application of water, use a dry mop or a squeegee to remove the excess water. This will prevent streaking and a dull surface look that can occur when water is allowed to dry on the surface.
