Basic Maintenance Of Epoxy Flooring

Basic Maintenance Of Epoxy Flooring

The use of epoxy resin for floors is increasingly widespread. In addition to the spaces in which we are accustomed to seeing this type of flooring, such as garages, health centres or sports facilities, we must add the new domestic uses they are receiving. For all these reasons, today we would like to share with you some basic guidelines for the maintenance of these soils, which although they are very resistant, require certain minimum care for their perfect conservation.

As we told you, epoxy resin floors are especially grateful. Without needing very thorough maintenance, they look clean and bright, as long as basic guidelines are clear and the right products and utensils are available.

Low-Intensity Machinery

The first guideline that you should keep in mind is that epoxy transparent resin (เร ซิ่น หล่อ ใส which is the term in Thai) for floors needs a low-intensity cleaning, both mechanical and chemical. This means that machines that exert great pressure on the ground or have very hard bristles that can damage it should not be used. On very large surfaces, such as garages or sports courts, it is inevitable to use sweepers and industrial scrubbers to be able to address cleaning but it is essential to check how they impact on them. Water scrubbers and vacuum cleaners are a good option, as long as they guarantee a good rinse and final drying.

And for domestic surfaces, nothing like using manual mops or thread clothes that do not leave lint on these floors. By making smooth and circular movements, these pavements will be cleaned so that they remain bright.

Non-Abrasive Products

And as for the type of products to be used, it is strictly forbidden to resort to abrasive detergents, solvents or concentrated bases. Ideally, use neutral soaps that do not damage the resin or discolour its hue, although reduced concentrations can be used to remove more difficult stains. In any case, nothing like following the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions and never exceeding the recommended detergent concentrations.

Yes, it is important to rinse the pavement with plenty of water and dry it with a vacuum cleaner since if we let it air dry, it will take time to evaporate and whitish fences will remain on the surface.
