The spread of microor­gan­isms in a man­u­fac­tur­ing facil­i­ty or work­place is more than dis­rup­tive, it puts your employ­ees, your vis­i­tors, and your prod­ucts at risk. Antimi­cro­bial floor­ing is a ver­sa­tile option for com­mer­cial and indus­tri­al floor­ing applications. 

It is a great invest­ment, it’s use­ful across indus­tries. If you are look­ing to resur­face or coat floor­ing in a ware­house, wait­ing room, or new loca­tion, there are many rea­sons to con­sid­er these high­ly effec­tive coat­ings for your site.

4 Ben­e­fits of Antimi­cro­bial Flooring

Our clients have seen the many ben­e­fits of apply­ing antimi­cro­bial floor­ing, including:

  1. Non­porous Sur­face: Antimi­cro­bial floors are non­porous. Seam­less antimi­cro­bial coat­ings pre­vent dirt, debris, and con­t­a­m­i­nants from seep­ing into the floor­ing and dam­ag­ing it over time. 

  2. Bio­sta­t­ic Effects Floors with antimi­cro­bial prop­er­ties are also bio­sta­t­ic. Growth of mold, mildew, yeast, and bac­te­ria can be slowed and stopped. In fact, con­t­a­m­i­nants that come in con­tact with coat­ings can be killed before they have the chance to devel­op. As long as your floor­ing is not dam­aged, and its coat­ings are treat­ed prop­er­ly, the bio­sta­t­ic effects will con­tin­ue for the lifes­pan of your flooring.

  3. Com­pli­ance: Antimi­cro­bial floors may be required in your indus­try, depend­ing on how sen­si­tive your pro­duc­tion process is to com­pro­mise or con­t­a­m­i­na­tion, and how rig­or­ous your health and safe­ty require­ments are. USDA and FDA stan­dards can be met much more read­i­ly with antimi­cro­bial coat­ings for your floor­ing system.

  4. Low-Main­te­nance: If it is prop­er­ly installed and main­tained, antimi­cro­bial floor­ing is easy to clean and main­tain. Since par­tic­u­lates sim­ply rest on top of the floor­ing, they sim­ply need to be wiped off with the prop­er floor clean­ing tools and supplies.

Ver­sa­til­i­ty of Antimi­cro­bial Flooring

These floor sys­tems are high­ly ver­sa­tile, and have appli­ca­tions in many indus­tries, including:

  • Brew­ing and distilling

  • Health­care

  • High Tech (includ­ing clean rooms and data centers)

  • Food Ser­vice

  • Vet­eri­nary Services/​Animal Clinics

If san­i­ta­tion is a pri­or­i­ty or if you receive annu­al inspec­tions, these floors are a great invest­ment. Because they halt the growth and spread of germs and con­t­a­m­i­nants, they are safe for peo­ple and animals.

Installing Antimi­cro­bial Flooring

If you know the demands placed on your floor­ing and the require­ments of your indus­try demand a high degree of san­i­ta­tion and germ-resis­tance, you may be ready to invest in antimi­cro­bial flooring. 

It’s impor­tant not to rush that process or attempt a DIY approach. You need to know:

  • Con­di­tion of the exist­ing flooring

  • What resur­fac­ing or prim­ing needs to be done before coat­ings can be installed 

  • Which coat­ings are best for which floor­ing materials

  • Thick­ness of any coat­ings you want to apply

Hir­ing an indus­tri­al floor­ing installer is a wise choice, as incor­rect instal­la­tion can affect how well coat­ings adhere, which can mean cost­ly resur­fac­ing if not done prop­er­ly. Kaloutas has decades of expe­ri­ence installing indus­tri­al floor­ing and coat­ings for com­pa­nies through­out New England. 

We are com­mit­ted to pri­or­i­tiz­ing your health and safe­ty demands and will work with you to install your coat­ings at a time that works best for your pro­duc­tion sched­ule. No mat­ter when you work, we can make it work. 

Many antimi­cro­bial coat­ings can be installed with­in a day, and ready for use soon after. Before we start, we can assess the exist­ing floor­ing to ensure it is clean, lev­el, and ready for coat­ings to adhere.

We’ve Got You Covered

We under­stand floors aren’t the only sur­faces requir­ing pro­tec­tive coat­ings. As part of our indus­tri­al paint­ing ser­vices, Kaloutas teams can coat equip­ment, con­tain­ers, tools, fix­tures, walls, and ceilings. 

If sur­faces need to be deep-cleaned before coat­ings are applied, we have abra­sive blast­ing options (includ­ing sand­blast­ing and sponge blast­ing) to treat sur­faces prop­er­ly with­out con­t­a­m­i­nat­ing the sur­round­ing space.

When you work with us, you hire more than a floor­ing com­pa­ny. You get an expe­ri­enced team of pro­fes­sion­als com­mit­ted to help­ing you save time and mon­ey on facil­i­ty main­te­nance long term. 

Our proac­tive approach means we stream­line com­mu­ni­ca­tion, antic­i­pate prob­lems, and com­plete projects on an effi­cient time­line, at a rea­son­able budget.

Any paint­ing, floor­ing, clean­ing, or main­te­nance projects we com­plete are done with­out inter­rupt­ing pro­duc­tion or halt­ing productivity. 

Our no work stop­page guar­an­tee is designed to help you meet your goals and exceed your expec­ta­tions, for your facil­i­ty and your bot­tom line.
