Urethane Concrete Floor Maintenance

5 Tips to Maintain Your Urethane Concrete Floor Investment

What is a Urethane Topcoat?

 

Urethane concrete floor maintenance is a necessary but easy solution to keep your decorative concrete floors or high performance concrete floors sterling and in pristine condition. Urethane top-coated floors and epoxy top-coated floors are a premier finish for newly poured or older concrete floors with character; they are almost twice as thick as acrylic sealers and form a high-build protective film on the concrete surface that provides excellent resistance to chemicals and abrasion.

Now that you know a little bit about Urethane and Epoxy floors, we can delve into five tips for how to maintain urethane floors.

 

5 Tips on Urethane Concrete Floor Maintenance:

 

  1. Daily Maintenance: Dry mop the floor daily with an industrial dust mop. This will help remove dust and debris that can degrade the conductivity.
  2. Weekly Maintenance: Once a week wet mop the floor with a mix of non-residue* alkaline and water, and allow to dry.
  3. Bi-Weekly Maintenance: Every two weeks, auto scrub with a mixture of diluted alkaline non-residue floor cleaner to remove the ground in contaminants. In this process, use soft nylon bristle pads or red buffer pads. Be careful to not use too aggressive scrubbing pads because they could remove the gloss. If you have stubborn, ground-in scuff marks, you can use detergent. When using detergent, allow it to soak and then scrub.
    1. *Be aware that many detergents and cleaners leave behind harmful residues that reduce the conductivity of the floor finish. Make sure the floor cleaners you use are non-residue to keep the appearance of your urethane or epoxy floor.
  4. For an additional option, you can wax the floor, however this is usually not necessary. Keep in mind, once you wax a floor, you must regularly wax it to maintain the shine.
  5. Urethane or epoxy top-coated floors should last 10 or more years if regularly maintained. However, severe scuff marks can take a toll on the gloss and the overall look of the floor. Now, consider re-coating the floor.

Overall, when considering what topcoat to choose for your concrete flooring project, keep in mind the environment, how long you want it to last, if you want to reseal it every couple years, and how you want it to look. Urethane and epoxy topcoats are good options for industrial use; they may be more expensive than other sealers, like acrylic sealers upfront, but they will last longer and are more durable. They are generally thicker than acrylic sealers and they come in many colors, they can be slip-resistant, and chemical-resistant, and are aesthetically pleasing. They can be applied to concrete that has been ground and stained concrete to protect it and give it a nice glossy finish. If you follow the tips in this article, you should get several years of life to your floor, therefore making it a very wise investment. However, these tips are only suggestions; we are not the experts, so please contact your cleaning vendor or a janitorial company like Jon Don to seek professional advice or secure a cleaning urethane concrete floor maintenance program to protect your investment!

Denver Beer Co. Brew Kettles and Floor by Colorado Concrete Repair

 

Colorado Concrete Repair Inc. worked with Denver Beer Co. in their new brewery/beirgarten to give them a concrete floor coating that  would be tough, beautiful, and tons of traction when wet.

Charlie and Patrick, the owners of Denver Beer Co. described what they needed from a floor.  “We need a floor that we can manhandle kegs on, good traction when beer is on it, and stand up to the heat of the brewing process.  We also need this to look good and be easy to clean.  And every day we wait on our floor, is another day without beer brewing.”

After consulting with product reps we decided to apply a HP Spartacote polyaspartic vinyl chip floor after installing polyurea in the many joints in the floor.   The concrete had been cut out for the floor drains and the pipes to the drains.  The floor looked like a jigsaw.  The polyurea allowed us to fill and shave the joints in around 30 mins.  We then got to concrete repairs with the many holes and dings from the floors former use as a automotive repair shop.  Spending this time on the floor helps keep the floor clean and gets rid of places for bacteria to hide.

Then we formed the cove-base to help keep the walls easy to clean when splashes happen.

The HP Spartacote system was installed in 4 coats with a custom color to darken the look, just in time for the pipefitters to hook up the boil kettles.

Two months later we enjoyed pints of Neighborhood Pale Ale with hops grown by friends and family of the owners, and the initial IPA I’ve enjoyed.
