If you’re just not diving into the world of epoxy coating products, you’re probably a bit overwhelmed by all of the concrete coating options and their benefits. Even more so, you’re probably wondering how you can best care for the investment you’ve made in your home. Whether your coatings are in your basement or on your pool deck, there are a few basic steps you can take to start maintaining your residential floor coating.
Clean Up Messes Right Away
The great benefit of epoxy concrete coatings is that they are low maintenance; however, that doesn’t mean you’re completely off the hook. It’s true that the product seals the pores of your concrete, but you still shouldn’t let spills or water accumulate on the floor as this will eventually cause stains or other damage as you try to clean dried spills. Fortunately, it’s not hard to wipe liquids off the surface with a paper towel or soft cloth. If you’re little one’s have tracked dirt over your coating, you can sweep away the loose debris with a soft-bristle brush or dust mop.
Use the Right Tools
It’s important that you use the proper cleaning tools and products to maintain your coating if you want to increase the longevity of your coating. Our concrete coating solutions are incredibly durable and resist abrasions, but over time, harsh chemicals and bristles can start to cause tiny abrasions until your coating can no longer provide ultimate protection. Instead, you should use hot water and, if necessary, soft cleaners without any acid.
Wax or Polish as Needed
When you choose our high-quality epoxy coatings, we leave you with a shining and polished top coat. While we specially formulate our products so that they provide you with long-lasting beauty, there might come a time when you need to add a bit of extra shine to high-traffic areas. If this happens, you can simply apply a commercial polish or wax, but if you have any questions about the best products for our coatings, you can contact one of our knowledgeable experts!
