LKN Custom Garage, Co. coating systems are nonporous, making them easier to clean because dirt and contaminants remain on the surface. Our floors are stronger and more resistant to chemicals than many other types of flooring. It is important to keep the following things in mind when cleaning your garage floor:
Given that debris remains on the surface, they tend to act as abrasives and will eventually mar the finish in heavy traffic environments. As such, it is important that your floor is properly maintained on a regular basis. We highly recommend a monthly sweeping and mopping of the floor.
Do not use actual soap because it will create a film that is difficult to remove with rinsing. A film left behind after cleaning causes two issues: a) the film will become slippery when wet and b) this film attracts dirt and debris which actually causes the floor to look unclean soon after it has been washed. Floor stripping agents, citrus-based cleaners, corrosive chemical degreasers and acids are also not recommended as they can damage a floor if they are applied and let to sit for an extended period of time. A simple mixture of a PH neutral cleaner such as Simple Green® diluted with water is recommended for regularly scheduled maintenance.
