That’s why we rolled up our sleeves and provided a manual on dry washing the parking lot base! Sounds impossible? Read on to see for yourself.

Is It Possible?

The big question is can you even do this? Is it possible to avoid using water while cleaning such a ground? Well, the good news is that you absolutely can put the wet stuff away during the cleanups. However, you better off without such an attempt. In fact, we recommend you to use some water for rinsing the surface at least every other week.

But assuming you’re determined to cut back on the budget omitting the wet procedures, here’s what to consider.

Avoiding surface rinsing may help you cut back on the expenses, but it will add to the overall housework. Indeed, you must increase the cleanup sessions after opting into such a procedure.
You have to buy several tools such as a mop, vacuum, brush, and/or a commercial buffer (in case your surface is more of a commercial flooring).
You must be careful about choosing garage floor cleaning products and sidestep utilizing any strong cleanser.
How Can I Dry Clean the Epoxy Floor?
Dry cleaning is a term that is mainly used for washing textiles and cloths with a water-avoiding method. However, we’ll utilize it to virtually refer to any sort of cleanup procedure for a parking lot that doesn’t employ water as the main cleaning liquid.

There are several ways to omit the water when washing a base. The following, therefore, is a list of several dry-cleaning techniques for your Epoxy garage floor.

Buffer:
We recently provided a manual on how to use and care for a floor cleaner machine that might come in handy when it comes to the buffers. However, the process of utilizing this machine is not really complicated. You just need to attach a sand pad to its pad driver, and then move it precisely all over the surface.

This would smoothen the area and rid you of any contaminators. However, you must add a second phase to this process and mop or vacuum the remains afterward.

Vacuum:
As discussed above, this tool is vital one way or another. In other words, no matter you utilize it as a buffering assistant or stand-alone cleaning tool, it’s a must-have. You can mop the parking lot base as the initial phase and then vacuum the space to get the most of the cleanup session.

If the vacuum brush doesn’t contain a soft pad, don’t push it too hard as it may cause scratches. Check its brush before starting and attach a proper cover manually if it doesn’t have one.

Mop:
It’s one of the oldest methods of cleaning a painted garage floor. So, we assume you already know the basics. However, bear in mind that mopping may not rid you of all sorts of contaminators. Therefore, you must increase the number of weekly sessions and make them longer as well.

Buy a long-handled mop and mark it as the main tool for your parking lot base cleaning. Utilizing a tool that has already been used in other procedures is not a good idea and may cause more harm than good.

Brush:
Utilizing this tool is pretty much similar to the previous one. So, follow the instructions given above. In case there are some serious stains or marks that seem tough, use our manual on how to clean oil spill on Epoxy garage floor to remove them immediately.
