Those who are unfamiliar with epoxy flooring may wonder why it is increasing in popularity when there are so many other floorings available. However, the use of epoxy flooring is spreading because it's affordable, sturdy, attractive, and easy to keep clean.
For a homeowner, a durable flooring which doesn't require regrouting or waxing is ideal. A floor which is stain, spot, and odor-resistant needs even less maintenance in the long run. There is an economy in a low-maintenance floor, both in terms of product and effort. Sweeping and periodic mopping is all that is required to make epoxy flooring look great again.
The smooth surface of the epoxy makes it easy to clean. It repels chemicals, laundry products, automotive products, home improvement fluids, and more. Because it doesn't have cracks, crevices or grout, there is no place for dirt to hide on an epoxy floor. The most it needs in the way of cleaning is a dust mop and occasional mopping.
Anyone who has managed a concrete floor knows that concrete sheds dust regularly, and continues to do so for years. It may even begin to crack in places. But, when an epoxy floor is added to a garage, the concrete dust becomes a thing of the past. Those who were dealing with a layer of concrete dust on cars, tools, or anything else stored in the garage are finally free from having to deal with it. Concrete dust can also no longer get into the home through the connecting door.
A garage is a place of mishaps. A little grease from the car or laundry liquid on the floor can create a slipping hazard. But epoxy flooring won't allow products to absorb into it, so slipping is minimized.
Also, epoxy flooring reflects more light than concrete, making the area brighter. Meaning, the potential for accidents is less when it's easier to see hazards.
The colors and styles available in epoxy flooring are fantastic. Once epoxy covers the concrete floor (including any developing cracks), it stays beautiful for years, without fading, chipping, or peeling. There isn't another flooring option for a garage which eliminates the need for timely and expensive cleaning or maintenance.
If you're looking for the most economical way possible to make your garage look stunning, try epoxy flooring. It will minimize the need for cleaning the garage and its contents and create a look that will add to the appeal of your home.
