So How Long Do Epoxy Floors Last?
One of the widest spread rumors about epoxy flooring is that they are short term flooring systems that need constant refinishing. This, however, is completely untrue and needs to be exposed for the lie that it really is! Today, we are going to be taking a look at how long epoxy flooring can last when professionally installed and properly maintained.
Routine Maintenance of an Epoxy Floor
What are epoxy floors?
Epoxy is highly durable
- Foot traffic. Now, high or low, foot traffic is an important component here. How often your floors are being used, and in what way they are being used, should be considered to ensure that proper maintenance is being done to elongate the lifespan of your epoxy flooring. As I’m sure you know, with more foot traffic comes more chances for scratches, impacts and spills to affect your floors.
- The installers. I would not recommend creating an epoxy flooring system as a DIY project if you’re not a professional. If anything goes wrong, you’ll want someone who knows what they’re doing to fix any issues and mend any problems. Professional epoxy companies often offer warranty and ways of installation that could save you both time and money. It’s important to do your research and read recommendations and reviews before hiring a company, so you know you’re getting the best and most credible service possible.
- Maintenance. Epoxy concrete floors do not need extensive or expensive floor treatments, however nothing lasts without a little help. An epoxy flooring system needs to be properly taken care of, based on how the floor is being used.
- The company you hire and its credibility are the final resolutions to choosing an epoxy floor. Always be sure to check on recommendations and reviews when researching an epoxy flooring company.
