Tips to Prevent Dirty Epoxy Resin Floors

Your main recourse of preventing a dirty epoxy resin floor is prevention itself. Epoxy’s seamless finish leaves little room for dirt or bacteria, but just a few extra steps of protection can eliminate most sources of dirt and grime. Here are additional measures to keep your floors clean:

  • Entry Mats & Rugs: Mats & rugs placed at key entryways will help prevent a significant amount of outside dirt.
  • Furniture Mats: Fabric pads placed under your furniture's feet will help fight against scratches on your floor.
  • Immediate Spill Cleanup: Wipe spills, especially oil, immediately. While epoxy will fight off most spills due to its protective qualities, it's still good practice!
  • Avoid Sharp Objects: Epoxy is more scratch-resistant than most alternatives. But, as before, it's still good practice to avoid any possibilities.
