Keeping Your DiStefano Brothers Concrete Floor Coating Sparkling: A Cleaning Guide

Polyaspartic Polyurea floor coatings are popular choices for garages, basements, and other high-traffic areas due to their durability, non-slip texture, and attractive finish. But like any surface, they require proper cleaning to maintain their beauty and longevity. Here’s a comprehensive guide to keeping your polyurea/polyaspartic floor looking its best:

Preparation is Key

Before diving into cleaning, gather your supplies:

  • Stiff bristle brush
  • Bucket
  • Hot water
  • Mild detergent (pH-neutral if possible)
  • Squeegee (or Mop for indoor applications)
  • Soft-bristled scrub brush (optional)
  • Microfiber cloths (optional)

Regular Sweeping or Vacuuming

The key to maintaining a Polyaspartic Polyurea floor is to prevent dirt and debris buildup. Sweep or vacuum daily in high-traffic areas and at least once a week in less-used spaces. This removes loose particles that could scratch the floor’s surface.

Mop Routine with Gentle Cleansers

For a more thorough clean, follow these steps:

1) Dilute your cleaning solution. Mix a mild, pH-neutral detergent with hot water according to the manufacturer’s instructions, such as Dawn dish soap, Simple Green or CLR.

2) Clean in sections. Work in manageable areas to ensure even cleaning and prevent cleaners from drying on the floor.

3) Apply the Solution. Apply the solution to one section of the floor; for some applications, it will be easier to pour the solution on the floor, and for others, applying with a mop may be a better option.

4) Agitate with the Brush. Use the brush to release some of that dirt, salt and grime, then wait 5 minutes.

5) Rinse For applications where you can use a squeegee; pour water on and squeegee off. For other applications; use a mop to apply and remove the water.

6) Air dry completely. Allow the floor to air dry entirely before walking on it or placing rugs back down.

Spot-Cleaning Spills

Act quickly for spills. Blot up any liquids with a clean, absorbent cloth to prevent staining. For tougher spills, you may need to use a small amount of your cleaning solution on a microfiber cloth. Rinse the area thoroughly afterward.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals and Abrasives

Avoid harsh chemicals like bleach, degreasers, or abrasive cleaners. These can damage the floor’s coating and make it more susceptible to scratches and stains.

By following these simple cleaning practices, you can ensure your DiStefano Brothers concrete floor coating remains beautiful, functional, and easy to maintain for years to come.
