Epoxy Floors Waukesha
What Is Epoxy Flooring?
Epoxy resin flooring, or resinous flooring, is a mix of polymer resins and hardeners that chemically bond with each other and with the concrete flooring itself. It is applied in layers to the concrete. These layers create a hard, shiny, plastic-like coating that is durable and easy to clean and care for.
Epoxy flooring is available in many different colors to appeal to your taste, matching the surrounding building however you wish.
Where Can I Use Epoxy Flooring?
Epoxy flooring can be used for both private home garages, as well as restaurant entryways and kitchens, back bars, manufacturing, and commercial floors.
In home garages, it provides a floor that is repels stains and dirt, and can easily be hosed off, swept often, and driven upon.
For commercial use, epoxy resin flooring is used in high-traffic areas that need to be cleaned often and withstand heavy traffic.
Mechanic's garages, manufacturing floors, pharmaceutical workspaces, and parking garages are just a few examples. In these situations, we can apply an ESD (Electro-Static Charge) resistant epoxy solution that can help discharge the static electricity buildup while working on engines and other static-sensitive equipment. This is crucial in helping to eliminate accidents caused by the buildup of combustible materials in the workspace.
Epoxy Floor Maintenance
Maintaining your epoxy resin flooring is very easy.
The surface of the floor is durable and can withstand heavy use, whether is foot traffic or wheeled vehicles.
You can power-wash an epoxy floor, if necessary, but usually a mix of all-purpose floor cleaner diluted in a bucket of warm water will do the trick. Even better is a steam cleaner. Regular sweeping and mopping will keep your floor in good shape.
If you have heavy grease marks, it is safe to use a degreaser on the floor in that area. You can even use a soft nylon brush to gently scrub marks away.
The Bottom Line
Epoxy resin flooring is a durable, affordable way to maintain high-traffic areas in your home or commercial building.
It's low-maintenance and the available styles and colors can be matched according to what is needed.
