The Expected Lifespan of Epoxy Flooring

While the lifespan of epoxy flooring can vary depending on the amount of traffic it's exposed to, it will typically last for about two to three years in heavy-traffic areas. This is especially true with commercial spaces; however, since they experience heavy amounts of traffic. Homeowners can expect to get much more life out of their epoxy flooring with proper maintenance, helping it to last up to 10 years or longer.

How to Extend the Life of Your Epoxy Flooring

Since residential epoxy flooring typically only needs to accommodate your family vehicles (and not a fleet of commercial vehicles), there are a lot of things you can do to help it last. Routine maintenance of your epoxy flooring includes simple tasks like sweeping the floor regularly to remove grit, dust, and dirt from the surface. A mild scrubbing about once a week will also help your epoxy keep its shiny appearance.

Reapplying Epoxy Flooring

While it’s typical for commercial spaces to need to reapply their epoxy flooring every few years, it is also an option for residential spaces if it seems necessary. If your epoxy flooring is exposed to a lot of traffic, you do have the option to professionally re-apply your epoxy.
