Should I repeat garage floor cleaning before adding epoxy?

Growing in Experience

Should I repeat garage floor cleaning before adding epoxy?

I am new to this community and embarking on my first project involving Garage Epoxy. I've chosen the Rust Oleum Epoxy Shield Garage Floor Coating Kit for this endeavour. I've already cleaned the garage and performed etching using the Garage Etching provided in the kit.


Could you kindly assist me in reviewing the before and after pictures to confirm the quality of the cleaning? Additionally, do you recommend that I repeat the garage cleaning and etching steps one more time for optimal results?


My next step involves filling cracks using the Rust Oleum Concrete Patch & Repair Patch, followed by the application of the epoxy.


I also have a question: which top coat do you suggest I pair with this epoxy for the best outcome?
