The good news is, we offer a very elegant anti skid additive that can be incorporated in the top coat to create traction in the event you have something wet on the surface.
Is Epoxy flooring easy to clean?
Yes very easy! In fact the reason these floors were designed was to aid in the ability to clean up spills very easily.
How should I clean my Epoxy floor?
We recommend you use 5 gallons of hot water per tablespoon of dish soap. You can spot clean with stronger cleaners but do not clean your entire floor with anything that is strong and could leave a heavy residue behind. Also avoid using any abrasive cleaners or abrasive scrubbing tools. Although you will not see any immediate problems, over a ten-year period or longer, this can deteriorate the aesthetic appeal of your floor.
Will my Epoxy floor scratch easily?
No, they are very durable and are chemically formulated to hold up against abuse. However they are not bulletproof. We recommend if you ever move anything heavy you do not drag it across the floor. You must use a dolly.
How soon can I drive on my new Epoxy floor?
Based on the manufacturer datasheet of the coatings we use, it is recommended to wait 48 hours before introducing vehicular traffic. This dry time can be longer in some cases as these products have temperature dependent dry times.
Why do some floors have more shine than others?
The short answer is, if you are comparing pictures from different companies, many times it’s simply the lighting and angle of the picture. In other cases, some companies have different protocols on how thick they go down on the final Polyaspartic clear top coat. We are known for our extra thick coating methods, and we also offer a Showroom Glass Coat as an upgrade for those who want that extra wow factor.
