Although resin is an appreciated material and strongly used in construction for its practicality and resistance, cleaning and ordinary and extraordinary maintenance of resinous surfaces should not be underestimated, but performed correctly. How to proceed correctly and not risk damaging the resin surfaces? The resin has now reached the podium, that is, it has become one of the most used materials for the construction of modern buildings. Floors and vertical surfaces become the favorite field for resin, which allows monolithic coatings to be created, as if they were works of art, perfectly suited to any need and preference.
The resin, as is known, is a very resistant to wear and tear, it is water repellent and, the complete absence of joints, makes surfaces perfectly hygienic, suitable for any domestic and industrial use. Its wide use is also due to the extreme low cost of this material that allows you to change the look of the rooms in a frequent manner. Thanks to the particular monolithic structure and the resistance of the resin surfaces, it is not very difficult to clean . Moreover, aging and yellowing are two processes to which resin is inevitably subjected by nature, but this can be remedied, thanks to expedients and remedies in the finishing phase that delay the progressive deterioration. However, adequate maintenance allows to remedy the possible imperfections.
The resin surfaces are characterized by a monolithic structure that allows easy maintenance . The complete absence of leaks does not allow dust to accumulate in cracks and become a hostile enemy towards normal detergents. Precisely for this reason, resin surfaces are used to cover all those rooms that need easy cleaning and cleaning, such as hospitals or the food industries. It goes without saying that, more and more, even the domestic environments welcome the resin as building material, able to simplify life, thanks to its practicality.
Moreover, the resin does not present any absorption problems , that is, its water-repellent nature makes it able to resist even a large quantity of liquids: in this case, in fact, unlike other types of building materials, the resin does not absorb the water, but it keeps it on the surface (sometimes, sometimes, this can cause slipping for those who pass on the wet surface).
Its excellent mechanical characteristics , its ability to resist shocks and wear , are all peculiarities that make the resinous surface a floor very little sensitive to falling objects or continuous foot traffic. It goes without saying that a smooth surface is more subject to the risk of imperfections, on an opaque or satinated floor, on the contrary, the differences, even if present, are not immediately evident.
Surely, one of the most recurring problems for resin coatings is constituted by scratches on the surface , but they are easily solved by means of a normal maintenance, which can be carried out using self-polishing waxes, before their use.
It goes without saying that the surfaces in resin most subject to imperfections are, without doubt, the flooring . However, there are gimmicks that allow you to avoid the appearance of any imperfections on the resin surface (resin driveway). For example, the most trivial, but also effective, is the placement of a doormat at the entrance of the room with resin flooring, in order to expel the dirt from the sole of the shoes, or any pebbles that could affect the smooth and shiny surface.
It is also advisable to avoid dragging heavy furniture on the resin surface, or even to limit shocks with heavy, sharp objects. If there are chairs with wheels, it is preferable to use the soft white compound , so as not to strip the resin surface. It is known that resin floors have poor resistance to sunlight and UV rays , as they cause yellowing. It is advisable, therefore, treat the surfaces with anti-yellowing products , the preferred resins, polyurethane, or acrylic cement epoxy ones, or learn to live with this natural phenomenon, typical of this material. A proper ordinary and extraordinary cleaning , as well as a protective treatment, constitute the most immediate remedies to maintain the original splendor of floors and resin coatings.
