When you are looking for new flooring for your personal residence, you are looking for specific colors, textures, and styles. When you are looking for flooring for a business, you may be looking for these same things, but durability is going to be an even bigger consideration than in your home. And if the business you’re in is in the medical or food service area, an even bigger area of concern is making sure that your flooring is antimicrobial – in other words, that it will stop the spread of disease causing pathogens.
According to the Antimicrobial Resistance Learning Site, “the term “antimicrobials” includes all agents that act against all types of microorganisms – bacteria (antibacterial), viruses (anviral), fungi (antifungal) and protozoa (antiprotozoal).” It’s clear why hospitals and other healthcare facilities would put finding a material that is germ resistant at the top of the list of necessary qualities. And when you consider that customers of restaurants or food providers are consuming the product offered, it’s pretty clear why they need to be concerned about germ resistance, too.
Because medical facilities and commercial food service providers see such heavy wear and tear, it is very important that the type of flooring installed be tough and wear resistant. Couple that with the need to protect clients from pathogens that spread disease, and you’ll understand that it’s wise to shop around and take the decision making very seriously. And that’s why the place to turn is the Concrete Décor Store. The experts there can give advice on the type of flooring that will work best for your facility, and they also can provide you with flooring that is antimicrobial.
Healthcare Facilities Today
The www.healthcarefacilitiestoday.com website states that “(O)nly seamless, fluid-applied flooring provides a grout-free floor surface that is completely bonded to the concrete substrate, virtually eliminating these menacing pathogen-control risks.” The Concrete Décor Store offers exactly that type of flooring: they not only carry antimicrobial additives to be used with a wide variety of polyurethane coatings and epoxy flooring systems, but they also offer flooring systems that have antimicrobial protection.
Low Maintenance Plus Antimicrobial
Another reason that seamless, epoxy floors with antimicrobial additives are a great choice is the low maintenance upkeep these floors offer. Because no stripping or waxing is required, custodial costs and supply costs will be reduced. They are also long-lasting, stain resistant, and stand up to the hard wear and tear to which healthcare and food service facilities are subjected.
