Garage floors with polyaspartic floor coatings offer many benefits; they’re durable, long-lasting and look great when installed properly. They are also easy to clean and maintain. Garage floor coating company Guardian Garage Floors shares tips on how to take care of your polyaspartic floor.
Sweep the Floor Regularly
While dirt and dust do not stick to polyaspartic coatings, they may scratch the floor or may get pushed into the coating by car tires. Make it a point to sweep the floor on a regular basis using a soft bristle broom or microfiber dust mop.
Spot-Clean Vehicle Drippings
One of the reasons garage floor coating companies recommend polyaspartic floor coatings is because of its stain resistance. Vehicle drippings, such as motor oil or brake fluid, look unsightly on your garage floor, so make sure these are thoroughly cleaned as soon as you see them. You can use paper towels or rags to blot most of the liquid then spot-clean leftovers with grease remover and hot water.
To remove stubborn stains, first sweep as much loose dirt and debris as you can. Then, prepare a mixture of 4 to 5 ounces of clear ammonia per gallon of water then apply using a foam or microfiber mop. Rinse often to remove residue and repeat as necessary. Avoid skin contact by using rubber boots, gloves and eye protector when handling chemicals. Rinse thoroughly once done. You can also use a pressure washer, but be careful not to let the spray linger on any one spot to avoid damaging the polyaspartic coating.
Take Care When Moving Heavy Equipment
When you need to move steel shelves or heavy equipment, don’t drag or slide them across the floor. Instead, use a moving dolly even when you’re only moving items across the room. Cover the base of load-bearing equipment such as a jack before using it. Otherwise, it may cause scratches and indentations on the floor.
