An epoxy coating creates a seamless floor that looks great and is easy to clean. The wrong chemicals, however, can actually damage the surface of your epoxy flooring. A few simple dos and don’ts can keep your epoxy in great condition for years to come.

  • Do use a soft-bristled broom or a dust mop to pick up debris.
  • Don’t mop with cleaners that are acid-based, like a vinegar solution, which will etch your floor.
  • Don’t use soap-based cleaners, either, which will form a build-up of residue.
    Instead . . .
  • Do use hot water with 4 oz. of ammonia/gallon when needed.
  • Do use soft-bristled brushes and hot water to tackle stains.
  • Don’t use abrasive cleansers to get up tough stains; epoxy can be scratched.
    Instead . . .
  • Do use scratch-proof cleansers when needed.
