Congratulations on Your Purchase!
Congratulations, you have successfully installed your new SOLID Floor Coating! You will be glad to hear that SOLID provides several of the best performing coatings in the industry today. Your floor has been fortified by a coating that has been created specifically to protect your concrete and to be strong enough to withstand everyday wear and tear. Our coatings are impervious to dirt, debris, oils, chemicals and other potentially harmful substances and can be easily cleaned.
You will not have to worry about waxing or polishing your SOLID Floor Coating, because the coating will already have a nice sheen. However, like with anything else, making sure that your floors get regular care and maintenance will ensure that the performance and finish of your coating lasts the duration.

Solid Garage Floor Coatings- Floor Care
Discourage Grime Build-Up
It is important as an owner of flooring with a protective coating to understand that your flooring will still require maintenance and care in order to perform for the long haul. A common misconception is that floor coatings repel dirt and grime. While a floor coating will keep the grime from damaging the floor, a buildup of dirt and grime can be abrasive to the top layer of the floor coating. Our recommendation here at Solid GarageFloor Coatings is to make sure to sweep the floor thoroughly from time to time with a nylon brush, especially if dirt, sand, or other debris are regularly tracked on the floor.
Use Proper Cleaning Agents
Another tip for taking care of your floor coating and flooring would be to use the proper cleansers to avoid leaving a film on the surface of your floor. Detergents and household soap can sometimes leave a filmy substance which can actually attract dirt and debris. It is also advisable to avoid floor stripping agents such as citrus-based cleaners or corrosive chemical degreasers. Essentially, avoid cleaners that are overly abrasive. Instead, use a PH neutral cleaner mixed with water to clean the floors. Our recommendation for a great PH neutral cleanser would be Simple Green.
- The first step when cleaning your floor is to sweep the floor using a dry mop or soft bristled broom to remove any detached debris and dirt. Although the floors are impermeable, it is wise to remove any potentially abrasive substances from the floor.
- Next, take a diluted PH-neutral cleaner such as Simple Green cleaner. After wetting the floor with clean water, mop using the cleaning solution. Lastly, rinse the floor with water. We recommend completing this step with a squeegee or a wet-vacuum to remove the excess water.
- If there is enough grime, the floor may require a second rinse. Allow the floor to dry before walking or driving over the floor.
Extra Floor Care Tips
If your floor has an especially difficult stain or dirty spot, use a small amount of acetone solvent to help fight the stain. Try not to over do it with the use of hydro-carbon solvents. Allow it to sit for a couple hours before wiping it away with a rag or sponge soaked in clean water.
If you decide to use a pressure washer to clean your floors, make sure that the water pressure does not exceed 1000 PSI. Avoid using the pressure washer too close to the floor and do not use pulsating or rotating nozzle heads in order to keep the floor undamaged.
