Extending The Life Of Your Concrete Floor With Polyaspartic Coatings
Polyaspartic coatings are a simple, cost-effective way to extend the life of a concrete floor, whether it’s installed in your home, garage, or commercial building. Garage floor coatings offer many benefits and may even increase the value of your property. However, their life is best preserved with proper maintenance. Take a look at these easy maintenance tips from a leading provider of Arizona polyaspartic and epoxy floor coatings.
Use The Right Tools
This may seem simple, but is actually one of the most important things you can do for your concrete floor coatings. Because garage floor coatings are easy to clean, you won’t need any heavy-duty equipment. All you need are some soft brushes and a mop. Never use abrasive cleaners because they can wear away at the surface of your floor coating. A microfiber cloth is an inexpensive and effective tool that will remove dust, sand, and debris from your floor. Only mild cleaners should be used. Never use citrus based cleaners or vinegar; the acidity will ruin the glossiness of your polyaspartic coating.
Prevent Build Up
Keep your floor in top condition by not allowing cleaner residue, dust, sand, or other debris to build up on the floor. If your garage is constantly dusty, the small granules will wear down the topcoat, making it look dull. Always rinse cleaners after applying to prevent build up that can make your floor sticky or slippery.
Don’t Scratch The Surface
Although Arizona concrete floor coatings are known for their durability, it’s still best to avoid scratching them as much as possible. Avoid dragging heavy equipment or tools across the surface, especially if the edges are sharp. Ideally, use the correct moving equipment or a cloth underneath heavy items to protect your flooring.
Clean Spills Immediately
One of the best ways to easily care for your Arizona garage floor coating is by immediately cleaning up messes and spills as soon as they happen. Although most floor coatings are resistant to staining, long-term exposure to chemicals, oil, cleaners, and other messes on your floor can cause it to wear out prematurely. Water and other liquid spills on the floor will be more difficult to remove after they’ve dried and may require the use of harsher cleaning products. Cleaning up spills right away eliminates the risk of staining.
Give Special Care To High Traffic Areas
Although you don’t need to wax and polish your Arizona garage floor coating, it’s one of the best ways to keep your floor looking new, especially in high traffic areas where the finish will more quickly look dull or worn. With the application of a quality floor polish or wax, you can maintain the glossiness of your garage floor coating. Clear coat is another option to keep your floor looking shiny and new.
Re-Apply Clear Coating
Ask your floor installer when they recommend applying a new layer of clear coat to seal your concrete floor coating. As the original layer of clear coat wears down with normal usage in your garage, the base coat and coloring of your floor is at risk of further wear and fading. A periodic reapplication of a clear coat will leave your floor looking shiny, new, and beautiful. It will also preserve the life of your Arizona garage epoxy and polyaspartic coatings for a long service life. Your professional epoxy floor coating installer can apply this coating for you for a perfect, efficient way to finish off your floor so it will serve you well for many years. It may even be included in your floor’s warranty package.
Although Arizona concrete garage coatings are typically very strong, durable, and long-lasting, and do not require much maintenance compared to other types of flooring, following our basic maintenance tips will help keep your epoxy and polyaspartic coatings in excellent shape for much longer.
