There are countless floor types that all come with their own set of issues. Epoxy is made out of resin and other hardeners that create a strong bond when combined via a chemical reaction. It’s durable and long lasting if taking care of properly.
So how long does epoxy floor last?
They can last 10 to 20 years, though in places, with high traffic areas, they will last 2 to 3 years.
Here are 3 tips for keeping epoxy floors looking good and long-lasting:
- Regular maintenance – sweep the floor daily and remove any grit, grime, dust, and dirt. Conducting a mild scrub once a week will keep your floors shining for a long time
- Reapply the coat – if you have a heavy traffic area then you will want to consider reapplying a new epoxy coat after about 3 years. This is typical of a commercial facility with heavy machinery and high foot traffic
- Professional installer – making sure that you hire the right professional can determine how long your epoxy floor will last. Poor product choice and a bad installation can leave you with imperfections in the floor. Make sure that all products are high quality and your installer knows what they are doing.
