Clean An Epoxy Garage Floor In 3 Easy Steps

Wednesday, September 28th, 2022 | Uncategorized | No Comments

If you already have a PremierGarage durable floor in your garage, you’ve taken an important step in having a cleaner, more attractive home.

PremierGarage floor coatings are popular for their durability, slip- and stain-resistant properties, as well as ease of cleaning. Learning how to care for and clean a garage floor will ensure long-term function and satisfaction with your floor. 

Step 1: Clear the Floor of Loose Debris

Remove anything that is sitting on the garage floor so the entire floor is exposed.  Sweep or shop vac the floor to remove dirt, sand or other debris.  Make sure to clean under cabinets, work benches or appliances. In preparation for step two, place small plastic baggies over the garage infrared door sensors to they don’t get wet.

Step 2: Clean the floor

The best way to clean the floor is by using a mop.  A heavy-duty cotton mop is recommended, and a rolling bucket will make the task easier sine you’ll want to rinse the mop as you go section by section.  Take extra care as you work, since enough water on any floor will make it slippery. 

Cleaning solutions that will clean while protecting the finish include ammonia. Just mix five ounces of clear ammonia per gallon of water.  Also, a diluted solution of a degreaser like Simple Green mixed with one-half-cup per gallon of water cleans well.

Step 3: Rinse and Dry

Use a hose and spray nozzle to rinse the floor. Your garage floor will have a natural slope from the back of the garage to the driveway, so start at the highest point at the back to spray and rinse. Be careful under cabinets to limit splashing water onto wood components. Hose back and sides of the floor to the middle, and then out the door. To quickly dry the floor and ensure no standing puddles of water remain, use a floor squeegee (18 or 24 inches to speed things up) or a clean street broom to move any water out of the garage, using the same back-and-sides-to-middle routine. Remove the plastic baggies from the garage door sensors and you’re done,

If you haven’t had a PremierGarage floor installed, consider the benefits: 

>>Increase the resale value of your home.

>>Improves safety with a floor that is slip, impact and heat resistant, and brightens the area with increased light reflectivity.

>>Open up new activities in your garage. It could double as a children’s play area or hobby nook.
