Because Epoxy floors are non-porous they are easy to clean because all contaminants such as oil, gas, antifreeze, etc cannot penetrate the surface and will stay on the top of the floor.
The following are a few basics steps that we recommend for cleaning and caring for your epoxy coated garage floor:
1. Sweep floors or use a blower to remove any loose dirt etc. Use paper towels or rags to pick up large spills. You may wish to use a hose to rinse off the floor if you have a lot of dirt and debris prior to mopping.
2. Prepare a cleaning solution for mopping the floor. You can use any general household cleaner such as Fabuloso or Mr. Clean at a rate of ½ cup per gallon.
3. Once you apply the solution, use a mop with hot water to clean the floor and rinse frequently to rid your mop of the accumulated dirt and your floor of the soapy residual. We have also found that Steam Mop’s do an excellent job as well.
4. Keep in mind that epoxy floors are slippery when wet, so be careful while cleaning it and allow the floor to dry completely before pulling your cars back into the garage.
