Importance of cleaning the garage floor before epoxy.
Once you have decided that the garage floor will accept an epoxy coating, the next step is to clean the surface of the garage floor. If the floor is new or free from any oils or greasy residues, then you can just sweep it good and continue on to the next step.
It’s important to remove any oil or grease stains from the concrete and pay particular attention to areas that may have absorbed tire dressing. These areas will act like a sealer by repelling water and will not allow the epoxy to adhere acccurately. This includes old glue and mastics as well.
If you need to protect your walls from water while cleaning, it’s a good suggestion to tape up some cheap plastic drop cloths to the wall at this time.
