Our garages are some of the most functional rooms of our homes, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t look nice and be maintained. One of the best ways to protect the flooring in your garage is to apply an epoxy or sealant to the surface, but over time, the epoxy can become dull. Luckily, there are ways to make your floor shine again. At Dragon Scale, our team of flooring experts has the knowledge and know-how to have your floor looking brand new. We wanted to talk today about why your floor looks dull in the first place and what you can do about it.
Why Your Floor Looks Dull
There are a few reasons why a floor may grow to become dull over time. It could be that the quality of the coating applied wasn’t high, a lack of cleaning, or be caused by improper cleaning methods. However, even if you do everything right, over time, most floors will still become dull. If you apply a top-of-the-line coating and use all of the correct cleaning solutions, your floor will naturally lose some of its luster, and the only way to restore it is to have a fresh layer of coating applied.
Often, You Can Clean Your Garage Floor With Just Warm Water and a Mop
This might vary depending on the specific coating that was applied to your floor, but most homeowners should be able to clean their garage floors using little more than a mop and a bucket of warm water. Some soap may be necessary, but you should always be hesitant about using any cleaning solution, as many of them can cause a reaction to your floor’s coating and can cause it to have a hazy/dull appearance. How often you should mop your garage floor depends entirely on how often the area is used. The more often you and your vehicles are traversing on the floor, the more often it should be mopped.
Application of a Fresh Coating Will Have Your Garage Floor Sparkling
At the end of the day, if you truly want to give your floor a great shine, the only way to do it is to have a fresh epoxy or coating applied. There are some things you can do to restore a little bit of shine to a since-dulled garage floor, but if you’re looking for a great shine, you need to have a fresh coating applied by an experienced flooring company in Maryland. It is the only way to give your floor a great shine.
