Keep the Floor Free from Dirt and Debris
Dirt, grit, grime and small debris on the floor causes abrasion when thinks are rolled across the floor or when people walk across the area. The dirt is literally scratched and ground into the surface.
While epoxy flooring is much more durable than other types of surfaces including waxes and sealants, removing the surface dirt on a regular basis by sweeping, vacuuming or using a blower is highly recommended.
Limit Sunlight Exposure
Even with the newest types of epoxy, exposure to intensive and direct UV light from the sun can cause a slight yellowing of the surface over time. With darker colored flooring or a patterned flooring this is much less obvious.
Try to avoid direct sunlight on the flooring whenever possible. Closing bay or garage doors when the sun is most intense will reduce any potential discoloration over the years.
Make sure to wipe up spills as quickly as possible. The top quality epoxy surfaces are highly stain and chemical resistant, but quick clean-up eliminates the risk of staining or discoloration even with strong chemicals, fluids or fuels.
