Epoxy flooring is one of the top floorings on the market for the simple fact that it comes full of benefits when you use a professional installation process. Today we are going to take at a few of the best benefits that stand to be gained from using the amazing epoxy flooring system in either your home or business.
USDA Approved Flooring
One of the most unique qualities that epoxy flooring has to offer is that it is one of the few flooring options to be approved by the USDA for use in both food and beverage facilities and even for use in the medical field. This is because of epoxy floorings awesome seamless surface that is able to be disinfected easily as it has no cracks or crevices that require special attention. Another reason for its approval by the USDA, especially in the medical field, is the fact that bacteria have no place to hide away and reproduce, leaving all viruses and bacteria on the surface for easy disinfection for a perfect and hygienic floor.
Epoxy flooring has the benefit of being one of the strongest floorings that are in existence and that will ever be in existence for that matter. This is because the incredibly strong bond that is formed between the epoxy resin and the concrete slab from the preparation process to keep the flooring from cracking or bucking when in high-stress situations. With the epoxy flooring system in place, the concrete slab will be able to withstand the effects of heavy equipment usage, the impact from dropped objects and can even help prevent cracks from forming less rapidly.
Epoxy flooring has also been tested and proven to make the concrete slab up to 300 percent and last up to 3 times longer than a bare concrete slab when it has been professionally installed.
Another benefit of using an epoxy flooring system is that they can be installed at the same pace and most of the time even faster than all other floorings. In an area such as a 2 car garage, epoxy flooring can be installed and done within less than 4 days when weather permits. Remember, after epoxy flooring has been installed, do not walk on it for at least 24 hours and all vehicles are not permitted on the surface for at least 72 hours, after that the flooring is good to go. In most cases, we have found that the owner choosing the design of the epoxy flooring takes longer than the actual installation of the epoxy flooring system!
A benefit that the top coat of epoxy flooring comes equipped with is the resistance to almost every single chemical, no matter how harsh they are. The top coat of the epoxy flooring actually isolated the chemical on the surface of the flooring, not letting the chemical be absorbed by the concrete slab, for easy cleanup and disposal. With this tough top coat, your facility can even say goodbye to the tough stains that most chemicals leave behind when exposed to flooring.
