Four Ways Damage Contractors Can Help Restore Your Epoxy Flooring

Posted on: 18 November 2022

Damage to your epoxy flooring is an unfortunate reality, but it's not the end of the world. With a little help from your favourite damage contractor, you can restore and repair your epoxy flooring, bringing back its lustre and beauty.

Here are four ways that damage contractors can help restore your epoxy flooring.

1. Contractors Can Repair Small Scratches And Dings In Your Epoxy Flooring

You might have heard that scratches in an epoxy floor can be repaired with a scratch kit. While this is true, they are more likely to be repaired by a professional than by you. When repairing scratches in an epoxy floor, it's important to make sure that all the materials used throughout the process are compatible with one another. If there is any doubt about the compatibility between products or materials, it's best to leave this task up to a professional contractor who knows how to properly match up materials and equipment.

2 . Contractors Can Repair Cracks In The Sealant Layer Of Your Epoxy Flooring

Cracks in the sealant layer of your epoxy flooring may not seem like much of an issue at first glance, but they can lead to bigger problems down the line if left unattended for too long. These cracks will cause water penetration into the concrete slab underneath your epoxy floor, which can lead to all kinds of problems. For example, if there is water penetration in the concrete slab, it can cause the epoxy to deteriorate and erode away much faster than expected. This will lead to higher maintenance costs for your facility in the long run because you will have to replace your flooring much earlier than anticipated.

3. Damage Contractors Can Perform Epoxy Refinishing

Another option is simply refinishing your existing epoxy by grinding it down to remove scratches or dents and adding a new layer or two of epoxy over top of it all. This process will make your existing floor look like new again without having to replace any damaged areas entirely with new materials like you would need to do with a full-scale replacement job.

4. Damage Contractors Can Re-Cure Your Epoxy Flooring 

Epoxies are made using two components: resin and hardener, which are mixed together before application on a surface. These curing processes take place once the mixture is applied on the surface and left for several minutes before being polished or buffed off by hand or machine depending on how smooth you want your epoxy floor to be after polishing or buffing off the mixture.
