Regular sweeping and vacuuming, along with other proper maintenance practices, will ensure that your garage epoxy floor remains in excellent condition for years to come.

Apply a Degreaser* to Remove Any Oil or Grease Stains

To remove any oil or grease stains from your garage epoxy floor, we recommend using Epoxy Floor Cleaner by DuraGuard Surfaces. It’s important to use a suitable degreaser specifically formulated for epoxy floors. Using the wrong type of degreaser can damage the epoxy coating and affect its durability.

There are different types of degreasers available for removing oil and grease stains, such as solvent-based degreasers and water-based degreasers. Solvent-based degreasers are effective for heavy-duty stains, while water-based degreasers are safer and more environmentally friendly. We are proud to offer a very effective and environmentally friendly degreaser to make it easy for you!

When applying the degreaser, make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and wear protective gloves and eyewear. Apply the degreaser directly to the stained areas and use a scrub brush or broom to scrub the surface. Rinse the area thoroughly with water to remove any residue.

Use a Pressure Washer or Mop to Clean the Entire Floor

How can you effectively clean your garage epoxy floor using a pressure washer or mop?

When it comes to cleaning your garage epoxy floor, you have two options: using a pressure washer or a mop. Both methods have their benefits and considerations.

Using a pressure washer can be a quick and efficient way to clean the entire floor. It can remove stubborn stains, dirt, and grime with ease. However, it’s important to use the pressure washer safely and effectively to avoid damaging the epoxy coating.

On the other hand, using a mop can be a more gentle approach. It allows you to manually clean the floor and ensure that every area is thoroughly cleaned. However, it may require more time and effort compared to using a pressure washer.

Ultimately, the choice between a pressure washer and a mop depends on your personal preference and the level of cleaning required for your garage epoxy floor.
