5 Benefits of Epoxy Floors

Posted By

Epoxy is made by combining a hardening chemical and resin. Epoxy resins are used in a wide variety of consumer and industrial applications. Its excellent adhesive properties and durability makes epoxy a popular coating choice in flooring.

Epoxy coating is scratch-resistant and is one of the most popular industrial flooring solutions around. Epoxy flooring can withstand heavy foot traffic and heavy machines such as forklifts.

Here are some benefits of epoxy flooring every homeowner and business owner should know.

Easy to Install

Applying epoxy floor coatings is incredibly easy and simple. The task is as simple and hassle-free as rolling paint on a wall or across a porch floor. Before you begin, thoroughly clean and patch the floor to be coated. Calculate how much mixture you’ll need. Measure the square footage area and determine if the coverage provided by your floor epoxy kit is adequate.

Low Maintenance

A concrete floor with an epoxy coating is easier to maintain than many other types of flooring. Epoxy floors do not have porous surfaces, and are incredibly easy to clean. Here are some tips to help you maintain your epoxy floors.

  • Remove sand and grit regularly: In addition to making your floor unsightly, dirt and grit can scratch it. Though epoxy floors are tough, they start to show the damage from multiple scratches over time. To prevent dirt from penetrating the surface of your floor, vacuum it regularly.
  • Treat stains immediately: Remove stains as soon as they happen. Do not use abrasive materials such as steel wool or harsh chemicals to get rid of stains. Pour warm water on the stain and lightly scrub the affected area with a soft deck brush or kitchen scrubbing sponge. Avoid using citrus cleaners or vinegar as they can break down the epoxy catalyst.
  • Do not use soap-based cleaners: Do not use a soap-based cleaner to clean your epoxy floor as it can leave a haze on the surface that can build up over time.


Epoxy floors are one of the most long-lasting and durable flooring solutions available on the market. They are famed for their superior durability. The flexural strength of an epoxy floor can exceed 10,000 psi.

Epoxy floors are resistant to various chemicals, including different types of solvents and acids, and scratches. Because they are resistant to impacts, epoxy floors are often installed in service areas where heavy equipment such as forklifts are used.


The per square foot cost of epoxy floors is less than many other popular flooring options. They do not need regular repairs and are easy to maintain.

Environmentally Friendly

Many epoxy floors use natural marble and organic resins. Resinous epoxy coating, including polyaspartic, silicone, and polyurethane, are completely inert once they dry and are not harmful to the environment.
