Seamless epoxy and urethane floor systems provide a tough finish that stands up to heavy abuse. However, floors are subject to traffic that can grind surface dirt and debris into the finish. This normal abrasion can result in wear and loss of gloss.
Regular maintenance is recommended to remove surface dirt and prolong the life and appearance of the floor. The frequency of maintenance depends on the volume and type of traffic.
The following recommendations should be used as a guide in establishing a suitable maintenance program.
- Allow cleaner to do its job (leave cleaner on floor as recommended to lift dirt prior to scrubbing)
- Scrub to further loosen dirt
- Remove soiled water and detergent
- Rinse thoroughly with clean water
- Follow detergent manufacturer’s recommendations and always test a small area when using a new product.*
These recommendations are applicable for most seamless resinous floor systems that C.A. Reed Associates installs. Consult us for specific instructions for care of your installation.
*Certain chemicals or chemical combinations may cause staining or chemical damage to some resinous systems. Many compounds with this potential are carried in water or solvent. As the chemical lies on the floor, the water or solvent may evaporate increasing the concentration and potential for staining and chemical damage. Also, as the length of exposure increases, so does the potential for staining or chemical damage. Potentially damaging chemicals should be removed from the floor system or reduced in concentration through dilution by washing with water, where appropriate, as soon as possible.
