Updated on January 10, 2013

The beauty of any building lies in the effective installation of the flooring. Choosing the right type of flooring is very essential. For businesses like restaurants that require daily cleaning, it becomes even more important to choose the right type of flooring to maintain the shine and elegant ambiance for a long time. Epoxy flooring is the newest and most successful type of flooring that offers highly durable flooring while making it easy to clean. It is important to clean your flooring on a regular basis to prevent germs and grime that eat up the material.

The finesse texture finish of Epoxy type flooring is due to the usage of naturally available small marble stones and quartz. These stones are completely saturated with resin and are thus non-porous. However, not all flooring that use Epoxy are seamless. The reason behind the failure of certain flooring is that the flooring is build with multiple layers. The sand that gets accumulated between these layers makes it porous and damage the surface over time. Choose a nice flooring company like Everlast that uses single layer of epoxy flooring constructed in a seamless fashion eliminates pores, dust and grime.

Cleaning Everlast epoxy floors is simple and easy. On a regular surface, use water and detergent to mop the floor. You can use hot water or steam to clean the surface. Pressure washing can also be done on the floor. For surfaces like restaurant kitchens that are more prone to extensive abuse, the flooring material is augmented with a glaze coat to improve the resistance. This additional glaze coat makes this epoxy floor non-grit, non-porous and easy to clean. You need to use a separate method to clean these non-grit floors.

Cleaning non-grit epoxy floors

First of all, clean the surface with water and then squeeze off the extra amount of water. Use cold water greaser to clean hard and rough stains. Taking the help of a deck brush, spread out the degreaser all over the place. Allow the solution to stay on the floor for some time so that all germs, dust and grime soak into the solution and come up. Now, start cleaning the floor with the deck brush. Pour clean water and squeeze it off to make the floor clean and sparkling. Epoxy flooring comes with non-grit surfaces and can be easily cleaned with little efforts. Taking time for the maintenance of your epoxy flooring enables you to enjoy the incredibly magnificent ambiance for several years to come.
