Enhanced cleanliness and sanitization have never been more critical than they are right now.

As things open up, cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing protocols have been widely enacted to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

We are becoming used to all of the new protocols, from frequent hand-washing and sanitizing to newly instituted commercial cleaning regimens that include the regular disinfecting of high-touch surfaces such as gas pumps, grocery carts, and doorknobs. But what about the other frequent source of transmission for pathogens? Commercial floors.


Innovative commercial flooring materials up to the new demands

Fortunately, in advance of the COVID-19 pandemic, commercial flooring has evolved from traditional materials to a range of more durable and hygienic applications. In particular, those places where there is a higher incidence of bacterial activity and the spread of infection and pathogens – commercial kitchens and hospitals, for instance.

Increasingly, laboratory, veterinary clinic, food production facility, and public restroom floors are being replaced by safer, more sanitary materials.
For a long time, sectioned materials such as vinyl and grouted tile were the go-to for strong and long-lasting flooring surfaces. Unfortunately, while durable and attractive, the seams and grout lines actually harbor germs and contribute to the spread of pathogens.

Likewise, unsealed concrete. Popular for the sheer durability and long-lasting quality, concrete floors can be a great choice for commercial flooring. But, without a high-quality floor system, its pores can provide safe harbor to germs and the growth of bacteria.

New commercial flooring materials offer durability, safety, and enhanced sanitization

Epoxy and urethane floor systems, and polished concrete floors, provide a surface that is solid and very easy to clean and maintain. It prevents the absorption of liquids and does not offer a refuge for germs and bacteria.

It’s not unusual for these materials to also contain anti-microbial additives to help prevent germs and molds. And not just on the floor’s surface, but throughout the entire coating material, to ensure consistent high-quality performance.

Many commercial and industrial spaces – kitchens, clinics, and hospitals – fight the spread of germs and bacteria and the floor systems listed above are very easy to. Clean and disinfect. An epoxy, urethane, or polished concrete floor system is designed to withstand the impact of harsh chemical cleaners. The right commercial floor system will protect your floor.
