Why Your Commercial Business Needs Epoxy Floors


Why Your Commercial Business Needs Epoxy Floors

If you are installing new or refinish existing floors in your commercial space, epoxy is your best option because of its many benefits. It offers many colors and decorative options when it comes to epoxy application, including metal and vinyl flake, glitter, and metallic.

Here are just a few of the reasons to install epoxy floors in your commercial warehouse or other business.

Non-Slip Additives

Many commercial businesses have spills and other issues that can cause the flooring surface to become slippery. Non-slip additives can be used in your epoxy to make your floor as safe as possible. This makes it ideal for businesses such as restaurants, auto body shops, and others where spills are likely.

Aesthetics

There are so many options when it comes to epoxy. You can do a simple clear coat that will protect your existing flooring. There are also many different colors that epoxy can come in. This means you can find a color to match any decor.

Longevity

Epoxy floors are made to last a long time. Even the most abused epoxy floor can last 10 years, and lesser-used floors can last up to 30. How long your epoxy floor lasts depends on many factors, but no matter what, this means your floor will outlast many other flooring options.

Durable

Epoxy cures very hard. This allows it to handle a beating from tools and other heavy equipment. It also means it can handle having forklifts and other machinery driven over it.

Ease of Maintenance

Epoxy flooring is very easy to clean and maintain. You can use a soft-bristle broom to sweep up any messes. Spills are easy to clean because they do not absorb into the epoxy or stain the floor. This is ideal for restaurants, auto shops, and other businesses that may have chemical spills. To mop your epoxy floor, you can use Simple Green or another non-abrasive solvent.
