How to Clean Your Epoxy Garage Floor Coating

Are you worried about the oil, grease, tar, sludge, dirt, salt residue, and tire markings on your garage floor coating? Like the rest of your house, your garage area requires your undivided attention. That’s why SSP Coatings recommends Crystal Simple Green to clean your garage flooring once it’s been epoxy coated.


It’s amusing how we clean every nook and cranny of the house except the garage! In a typical garage, clutter, grime, oils, and grease build-up appear to be the norm. 

Clutter, filth, oils, and grease build-up seem to be the standard in an average garage. You don’t have to wait before your monthly cleaning appointment to pay for your concrete garage floors. Cleaning your garage regularly is the way to go. A clean garage floor may help prevent oils and residues from being dragged into your house, and regular garage floor care may help keep your garage floor coating looking great. Here are the three simple steps:

1. Sweep

Car tires and footwear typically track debris, but you can easily remove the dirt and sand. One way is to start by sweeping the floor or using compressed air or a leaf blower.

2. Wash

For tougher dirt and floor stains, use Crystal Simple Green to eliminate tough stains, dirt, gunk, and funk on fabric. Rinse with water. Do not allow the product to dry on your floor.

3. Squeegee

Remove all liquid residue from your garage floor using a squeegee. Inquire about our brush-edged 30" or 22" squeegees.
