How long does epoxy flooring last?
Epoxy typically lasts two to three years. Of course, its lifespan depends on a lot of factors, including foot traffic, wear-and-tear, and maintenance. Residential floor coating usually lasts longer because they don’t see as much as foot or vehicle traffic. Industrial floors, on the other hand, are exposed to heavy machinery and chemicals which cause the epoxy to wear out more quickly.
How much does it cost?
The price of epoxy floors depend on the square footage of the floor as well as the type of epoxy used. On average, an epoxy floor costs between $3-$12 per square foot. That means a standard-sized two-car garage will run between $1,200-$6,000.
How to clean epoxy?
Epoxy is easy to clean. Most dirt and debris can simply be swept away with a broom or vacuumed. For minor spills, a paper towel or mop will do the trick. Heavy spill may require the use of a hard foam mop along with a mixture of hot water and clear ammonia.
How thick is epoxy?
A standard epoxy floor is 2 millimeters thick. Anything thinner than that is considered an epoxy coating, not an epoxy floor. Epoxy coatings are ideal for lower traffic areas that require minimal maintenance. Thicker floor coatings are ideal for cement floors that undergo heavy traffic from vehicles or equipment. Epoxy can also be used to repair heavily damaged floors.
