Frequently Asked Questions

Coated floors look immaculate right after being installed, but it’s still a floor and it will get dirty. For everyday cleaning of loose dirt and debris, simply sweep the floor with a soft bristle broom or use a shop vac with a soft brush attachment. You can mop the floor with a mix of ammonia and hot water (half cup of ammonia to 1 gallon of hot water). Simple Green with water is also acceptable for mopping heavily soiled floors (half cup of Simple Green to 1 gallon of hot water). Clean spills, especially chemicals, immediately. Windex also works well as a spot cleaner (1 part Windex to 3 parts water). The ratios of mixing solutions for cleaning are important so that a film or haziness is not left on the floor.

DO NOT USE: Acid-based cleaners (vinegar or citrus), bleach-based cleaners (Comet or Ajax), Murphy Oil Soap, anything abrasive or with pumice, sanders or scrubbers with aggressive pads.
Maintaining your floor is more about what not to do, rather than what to do. Cleaning your floor as mentioned above is really all you need to do in order to maintain a coated floor. Coated floors are extremely durable, but not indestructible. Do not chop wood or cut anything with a razor/knife on surface of floor. If using a car jack, jack stands, or anything that puts extreme weight on small focal points, put something underneath like rubber mats that can protect the surface. Put a computer mouse pad under motorcycle kickstands. Avoid sliding/dragging anything heavy, sharp or abrasive across a coated floor. If doing any type of welding on floor, be sure to use welding mats to repel sparks and/or hot metal shards as they will burn the floor.
Cure times will vary, depending on products used. It can actually take 7-14 days for a full cure of some materials, but that does not mean the coatings are not dry to the touch or able to be walked on. 24 hours after installation, you are able to walk on your floor and move light objects back on it. A minimum of 72 hours is needed to move heavy objects back on and park vehicles.
We use epoxy, polyaspartics, polyureas, urethanes and stains. The type of installation dictates what products are used for that specific floor.
