Polyaspartic garage floor coatings are growing in popularity every year for their durability, flawless finish, and easy maintenance. Speaking of cleaning regiments, homeowners who haven’t made the leap yet often ask our polyaspartic flooring specialists what it will take to keep their new floors clean and prevent anything from shortening the coating’s longevity. They’re always amazed by the answer, and we think you will be, too!
If you’re considering applying a polyaspartic coating to your garage floor, you will be happy to know that this type of flooring only requires occasional sweeping and mopping. Just be sure to use the right supplies and cleaning products. Here’s a more in-depth look at how to clean your polyaspartic floors.
Sweep Away Dust & Debris
Unfortunately, there isn’t a dust or dirt-resistant garage floor coating available. This means that while your polyaspartic-coated floors will resist stains from spills, they will still be susceptible to the effects of dirt and dust. Make sure you sweep your polyaspartic flooring using a soft bristle broom or microfiber dust mop. If you do this when you notice a buildup of dirt on your floor, you can effectively reduce the chances of scratches and wear and tear.
Spot Clean Any Spills or Messes
Stay ahead of any problems by wiping up spills or vehicle drippings as soon as you notice them. All you need to spot-clean your polyaspartic floors is a soft microfiber cloth or a paper towel in a pinch. If the stain proves to be a bit more stubborn, you may need to add hot water to the cloth.
Scrub Your Floors on a Regular Basis
After you’ve swept your polyaspartic garage floor, you should get the mop and cleaning supplies to give your floor a thorough cleaning. Make sure you use a microfiber or foam mop and a pH-neutral cleaner. You will want to avoid using other types of soaps because they leave a thin film on the polyaspartic floor coating system, and removing this film can be difficult. Also, ensure you do NOT use bristle brushes on the polyaspartic coating, as these tools can potentially damage the floor. After scrubbing and letting the cleaner sit for a bit, rinse the cleaner and dirt away with hot water.
If you prefer, you can use a homemade solution over a commercial cleaner to clean your polyaspartic floors. Simply use five ounces of ammonia per gallon of water to remove the soil from your floors. Rinse using hot water.
Protect Your Floor Between Deep Cleanings
While polyaspartic garage floor coatings are highly durable, they are not indestructible. To maintain your new coating, you will need to do more than regularly clean your polyaspartic floors. But don’t panic; these tips will not require more of your time. Here’s how you can further protect your polyaspartic concrete floors:
- Do not drag or slide heavy equipment across the floor. If you need to move an object and cannot lift it, place a towel or blanket beneath it before pushing it across the surface.
- Place a towel or mat beneath shelving, equipment, or tools that will bear a heavy load.
- Place padding beneath your motorcycle’s kickstand.
- Repair scratches, dents, and cuts in the polyaspartic coating as soon as you notice them.
