Keeping Your Garage Floor Clean

By February 2, 2023No Comments

A clean garage floor is the key to a well-organized garage. But let’s face it, cleaning your garage floor is no easy task. Between oil spills, tracked-in dirt, and grease and grime, plus the amount of time it takes to clean properly, it can be tough to keep your garage floor looking its best. 

However, with the right cleaner and a little elbow grease, you can easily remove built-up gunk. A powerful cleaner dissolves tough grime and removes grease, oil, and adhesives, leaving your floor looking like new. Additionally, the cleaner you choose should be safe to use on a variety of surfaces including metal, painted surfaces, plastic, rubber, vinyl, glass, wood, and tile, for instance.

In this post, we’ll outline the steps you can take to keep your garage floor spotless all year round!

Garage cleaning

Step 1: Sweep Away Dirt and Debris

Before you start cleaning, sweep away any dirt or debris that may be on the surface of your garage floor. This will help ensure that the cleaner can do its job without having to fight through a tough layer of dirt first.

Step 2: Apply Cleaner to the Floor

Once you’ve swept away the surface dirt, it’s time to apply the cleaner to the floor. For best results, we recommend using an all-purpose degreaser. Simply spray the cleaner onto the floor and let it sit for 3-5 minutes so that it can penetrate the build-up of gunk.

Step 3: Scrub Floor with Brush or Mop

After letting the cleaner sit for a few minutes, it’s time to scrub the floor with a clean brush or mop. For stubborn areas, you may need to scrub a little harder. Just be sure not to scrub too hard or you could damage the surface of your floor.

Step 4: Rinse Floor with Water

Once you’ve scrubbed away all the sludge, rinse your floor with clean water. This will remove any residue from the cleaner and leave your floor looking spotless. If you have a pressure washer, this is a great time to use it as it will make quick work of rinsing away any remaining stains.
