Epoxy Floor Coating in Toronto

 

Epoxy is a resin-based material, which coats your floor with a protective sealant. This adds shine, customizable colour, and a durable surface on which to live your life. Adding an epoxy floor coating to an existing floor adds quality and appeal, without detracting from the concrete underneath.

Benefits of Epoxy Flooring

There are many reasons to choose epoxy flooring over alternatives for homes and commercial properties, which include:

  • Easy Maintenance – One of the greatest benefits of epoxy flooring is how easy they are to clean. The porous nature of concrete makes it easy to stain and difficult to clean. Epoxy floor coatings are smooth and sleek, repelling stains and offering a quick surface to wipe clean.
  • Durability – Epoxy flooring is highly-durable, lasting years before another coat is needed. It can turn a rough rundown space into a functional and beautiful space overnight, with no fear of damage through normal wear and tear.
  • Affordability – Epoxy flooring is highly affordable compared to replacing or covering a concrete floor with new concrete. It also saves you money in paint, as many epoxy floor coatings can be tinted to your preference.
  • Skid-proof – For commercial and industrial floors and basement and garage floors, there is a constant flow of heavy-duty activity. This leaves plenty of room for marks, stains, and discoloration. Epoxy floor coating deflects this damage, adding life and aesthetic to your floor.
  • Customizable – Like other floor types, epoxy flooring provides the advantage of being customizable, such as choosing from a variety of colours. Some new epoxy flooring offers the option of matte or gloss finishes. Depending on your style and design, you can select a bespoke epoxy floor coating perfect for your space.
  • Longevity – Epoxy flooring lasts much longer than acrylic coatings and paint, saving you time and money.

Epoxy flooring is normally reserved for spaces that are being used for work. However, epoxy floor coatings are becoming more popular in Toronto, with the rise in loft and industrial style lodgings increasing.

Choosing the Right Epoxy

Although it may be tempting to apply epoxy floor coating by yourself, we at Aimed Group highly recommend selecting a professional flooring specialist over an attempt at DIY epoxy. Epoxy dries quickly, requires a selection of specialized tools for application, and can get very messy. In the wrong hands, epoxy floor coatings can become unmanageable and even cost you more if you need to call somebody to fix it.

Working with a professional flooring contractor removes the risk of damage to your floors and increases the chances of perfect application on the first try. At Aimed Group, our epoxy flooring professionals are trained in a variety of application techniques. With years of experience under their belts, they can think on their feet and deal with any issues which may arise quickly and efficiently. This ensures your epoxy floor coatings go on smooth and clean every time.

Maintaining Epoxy Flooring

Some other tips for keeping your epoxy floor coatings looking shiny and new include:

  • Annual Soak and Squeegee – One of the best things about epoxy flooring is its ability to look brand new again, every time you give it a good scrub. We recommend an annual soak and scrub with a solution of hot water and ammonia. This will take off any residue built up over the year, whisk away dust and debris, and restore your floor to its original shine and colour.
  • Regular Sweeping with Soft-Bristled Broom – Epoxy flooring is tough, but you should still use the right tools to clean it. Keeping your epoxy floor coating scratch-free is easiest when working with a soft-bristled broom. Soft bristles also collect dust more evenly, leaving less behind to mar the sheen of your floors.
  • Tackle Spills Early – Epoxy floors are well-known to be stain resistant. However, keeping them at their best and brightest, so stains continue to be repelled some attention. If you notice spills hit the floor, be sure to clean them quickly. The longer any substance rests on epoxy, the more likely it is to leach colour.
  • Be Cautious with Ammonia – Many websites instruct the use of ammonia on epoxy floor coatings. While ammonia is great for stain removal, it needs to be used sparingly, so you do not break down that beautiful sheen epoxy flooring provides. It is best to dilute ammonia and ammonia products with hot water before using it to mop.
