How Long Does Epoxy Flooring Last?
A properly installed epoxy floor can last up to 20 years. How the floor is treated can lengthen or shorten its lifespan. Floors that undergo the heavy wear-and-tear of industrial machinery or caustic chemicals won’t last as long as floors in lower-traffic, quieter areas.
How Much Does Epoxy Flooring Cost?
There are a few important factors that determine how much your epoxy floors will cost. The first is size. The square footage of the area you need to have coated will have the largest impact on price. Generally, you can expect to pay between $3-$12 per square foot of flooring.
How To Clean Epoxy Flooring?
Epoxy is one of the easiest flooring materials to clean. Since the surface is smooth and non-porous, dirt and debris have nowhere to collect. Fluids like engine oil and cleaning chemicals also won’t be absorbed into the surface. If the garage floors get dirty, you can simply sweep or mop the surface until its clean again.
How Thick Is Epoxy Flooring?
An epoxy floor has a 2-millimeter thick layer of epoxy. If the epoxy is thinner than 2 millimeters, it’s referred to as epoxy coating. Since epoxy floors are thicker, they’re perfect for high traffic areas and floors that undergo the weight of heavy machinery. Thinner coatings are appropriate for lower traffic areas like residential basement floors.
