Slide1:

FOR MAINTAINING Whether you have professional epoxy coatings for your garage, basement, porch, sunroom or pole barn, the maintenance and usage tips are usually the same. A couple items below may only pertain to harder use applications though:

Slide2:

1 For minor spills or vehicle drippings, simply wipe them up with a paper towel or other soft cloth.

Slide3:

2 Routine maintenance cleaning is best achieved with either a soft bristle broom or a blue commercial dust mop.

Slide4:

3 For heavy cleaning of a soiled epoxy floor sweep away any loose debris and then mop floor with a hard foam mop, hot water and clear ammonia. Four to five ounces of ammonia per gallon of water is all that is needed to adequately remove soiling.

Slide5:

4 Some winter road “pre-treatment” compounds leave a hazy film on the floor coatings after cleaning. This can normally be removed with hot water and a deck (found at most hardware stores). Continuous rinsing may be required to keep the compounds from drying onto new areas of the floor.

Slide6:

5 Some stains (including rust) may require light scrubbing with a kitchen scrubbing pad . If you're unable to remove with just hot water, we recommend using Soft Scrub . Do not use Comet or other abrasive cleaning chemicals on the coatings.

Slide7:

6 If desired, the floor can be hosed out and squeegeed dry

Slide8:

7 Do not use any cleaner that contains acids (citrus cleaners or vinegar) or soap-based cleaners. Soap based cleaners leave a residue on the floor that not only detracts from the shine, but also become increasingly slippery should the floor get wet.

Slide9:

8 Use a walk-off mat (welcome mat) inside any entry door to assist removal of snow and water from the bottoms of shoes when entering the garage. Longer mats may be required during winter weather.

Slide10:

9 Place a computer mouse pad under a motorcycle kickstand to prevent damage to the coatings surface.

Slide11:

10 Ensure all areas are clean before lifting heavy loads with rolling jacks.

Slide12:

11 Place pieces of half-inch plywood under jack stands when bearing heavy loads.

Slide13:

12 Use a welding mat when welding above the coatings.
