Maintenance Requirement of Commercial & Industrial Flooring
Minimal maintenance does not mean zero maintenance. Your maintenance personnel need to do certain things to ensure the longevity and proper functioning of the epoxy flooring system including the following:
The new epoxy flooring system must be allowed to completely cure before allowing floor and equipment traffic.
Light foot traffic can be allowed 24 hours after installation when area has a temperature of about 20?C and after about 48 hours at 8?C.
Full chemical and mechanical loading can be allowed after 7 days with average temperature in the area of 20?C and 14 days at an average of 8?C.
It is important not to wash the new epoxy flooring system until it has completely cured. Your epoxy installer will brief he maintenance crew on how long it will take to complete the curing cycle.
