Epoxy flooring is renowned for its durability and aesthetic appeal. To ensure the longevity and beauty of your new epoxy flooring, it’s important to follow these care and maintenance guidelines. This comprehensive guide will help you maintain your floor effectively.

Daily Maintenance

Regular Cleaning

  • Dust and Sweep: Use a soft broom or a dust mop to remove dust and debris daily. This prevents scratches from abrasive particles.
  • Damp Mop: Use a damp mop with a pH-neutral cleaner to keep the surface clean. Avoid harsh chemicals that can damage the epoxy.

Spill Management

  • Immediate Cleanup: Wipe up spills as soon as they occur to prevent staining and avoid slip hazards.
  • Avoid Standing Water: Do not let water sit on the floor for long periods as it can weaken the epoxy and lead to potential damage.

Care and Maintenance for Your Epoxy Flooring System

Periodic Maintenance

Deep Cleaning

  • Weekly Cleaning: Perform a deeper clean once a week using a gentle scrub brush and a pH-neutral cleaner. Avoid abrasive pads that can scratch the surface.

Furniture and Heavy Objects

Protective Pads

  • Furniture Legs: Place felt pads under the legs of chairs, tables, and other furniture to prevent scratching the epoxy surface.
  • Heavy Appliances: Use protective mats or padding under heavy appliances like refrigerators and washing machines to distribute the weight and prevent dents.

Careful Placement

  • Avoid Dragging: Do not drag heavy furniture or appliances across the floor. Always lift and carry or use a dolly with rubber wheels.
  • Weight Distribution: For extremely heavy items, consider placing plywood sheets or rubber mats under them to evenly distribute the weight.

Stain and Damage Prevention

Avoid Harsh Chemicals:

  • Chemical Spills: Keep chemicals such as paint thinners, acids, and solvents away from the epoxy floor. In case of accidental spills, clean immediately with a damp cloth and a pH-neutral cleaner.
  • Routine Cleaning: Use only pH-neutral cleaners for regular maintenance.

Sunlight Protection:

  • UV Coating: We offer UV protection, which shields your floor but does not provide 100% protection in areas with direct sunlight exposure.
  • Additional Measures: To further protect your floor, use blinds or curtains to minimize direct sunlight exposure, especially in areas with significant sunlight.

Inspection and Repairs

Regularly inspect the floor for any signs of peeling, chipping, or other damage. Early detection allows for easier and less costly repairs. If you notice any issues, contact a professional epoxy flooring contractor to address them promptly.

Specific Product Recommendations

Using the right products can make a significant difference in maintaining your epoxy floor. We recommend:

  • Cleaners: Look for pH-neutral cleaners specifically designed for epoxy floors.
  • Mats and Pads: High-quality felt pads and rubber mats to protect the floor from heavy furniture.


How often should I clean my epoxy floor?
Daily sweeping and weekly deep cleaning are recommended to keep your floor in top condition.

Can I use vinegar to clean my epoxy floor?
No, vinegar is acidic and can damage the epoxy coating. Always use a pH-neutral cleaner.

What should I do if my epoxy floor gets scratched?
Minor scratches can be buffed out with a soft cloth and a little bit of epoxy floor polish. For deeper scratches, contact a professional.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your epoxy flooring remains in excellent condition, providing a beautiful, durable surface for years to come. Regular maintenance, careful handling of furniture and heavy objects, and prompt attention to spills and stains are key to preserving the quality and appearance of your flooring.
