The best solution is to use plastic containment anywhere that liquid chemicals are used where they could get into the environment.

But when you have a spill, you need to neutralize in some way.

By the time it reaches the floor it's contaminated, so if the spill is minor, it is not worth trying to reclaim it. Keep with your neutralizing practice or absorb with mops, rags, etc. and rinse them over a neutralizing tank and dispose according to regulations.
