frequently asked questions


1. Will my new epoxy flooring be slippery?

Depending on your specific flooring choices, your floors may have a slightly textured surface and feel or a smooth, glass-like surface. In most cases, your new epoxy flooring system will be no more slippery than regular concrete when it´s wet. If you are concerned about how slippery your new epoxy flooring will be, there are slip resistant additives that can be added to the top coat that will help with this issue.


2. How do I clean my new epoxy flooring?

You can give your new floors a light cleaning with a broom, dust mop, or even a leaf blower. For a deeper clean, you´ll want to mop your floors with simple mix of ammonia and water. It´s best to avoid any soap mixtures as these can leave a film which can cause your floors to become dangerously slippery. Metallic floor coatings show a bit more wear and tear, and need more maintenance so we typically recommend this type of look in places which will get swept often.
