Your Easy Guide to Cleaning and Maintaining Epoxy Floors

Epoxy floors are flooring made from a mixture of epoxy resin and hardener. They are known for their durability and resistance to staining and fading. However, over time, epoxy floors can become dull and stained. To keep your epoxy floor looking its best, it is important to regularly clean and maintain it.

There are a few things to keep in mind when cleaning epoxy floors. First, always use a gentle cleaner and avoid harsh chemicals. Second, be sure to sweep or vacuum regularly to remove dirt and debris. Finally, if you do notice any stains or build-up, be sure to clean them right away.

With proper care, any epoxy flooring will continue to look great for years to come.

Diluted Ammonia

To make diluted ammonia, mix one-part ammonia with one part water. For example, if you have a 1-quart bottle of ammonia, mix it with 1 quart of water. Ammonia can be used to clean epoxy floors by adding it to hot water. This creates a safe and effective cleaning solution.

In a bucket, mix the cleaning solution of your choice and water. To start, clear the area of any furniture or obstacles that will get in the way of cleaning. Then sweep up any loose dirt before vacuuming.

Once you have mixed the solution, you can apply it to your floor with a hard foam mop or microfiber cloth. You will then need to rinse off the detergent with clean water and allow the floor to air-dry or use a soft towel to dry it.

Nylon Brush

To make your own floor cleaner, mix Simple Green and ammonia in a 1:1 ratio. You can also use this solution to clean other surfaces in your home. To clean the floor, first, scrub it with a stiff nylon brush to remove any stains. Repeat this process until all stains are gone. Finally, rinse the floor with water and dry it with a towel.

Lactic Acid-Based Cleaner

Rust is a type of corrosion that can occur on metal surfaces. Rust can be difficult to remove and may require more than just a scrubbing sponge and water. To make a lactic acid-based cleaner solution, mix one-part lactic acid-based cleanser with one-part water. 

You need to apply the solution directly to the area you want to clean and scrub it with a brush. It would help if you did not let the solution sit on the floor for more than two minutes and then rinse it off with cold water. This cleansing solution can also be used to remove salt film and grease from your epoxy floor surface.


Leave the product on the floor for 5-10 minutes, then scrub the area with a stiff, bristled nylon brush. If the marks remain after washing, reapply the concrete degreaser and scrub the area again.
