Certified Antimicrobial Floor Systems - What’s Growing Under Your Feet?

Either your indus­tri­al floor­ing is for you, or against you…

Indus­tri­al floor­ing rarely plays a neu­tral role in your facil­i­ty. Or, at the very least, it won’t stay neu­tral for long. Either it’s an asset that is designed to fur­ther your oper­a­tions by per­form­ing as it should, or it’s a hin­drance. And, in extreme cas­es, it could be an actu­al liability.

At Kaloutas, we want to be sure that you are ful­ly informed when it comes to your indus­tri­al and com­mer­cial floor­ing options, and under­stand why those options are so important.

Antimi­cro­bial floor­ing is a per­fect exam­ple of how the space under your feet can either be an ally or an ene­my, and has spe­cial impor­tance if you work in the food, bev­er­age, med­ical, or phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal industries.

Health Risks Grow­ing Right Under Your Feet

In our recent overview of mois­ture mit­i­ga­tion sys­tems, we touched on the fact that con­crete is actu­al­ly a breath­ing, per­me­able mate­r­i­al. Its porous nature allows mois­ture vapor to pass through, and even the finest con­crete floor is rid­dled with tiny crevices and capillaries.

These damp crevices are the per­fect hide­away and breed­ing ground for a vari­ety of con­t­a­m­i­nants, including:

  • Microbes
  • Bac­te­ria
  • Fun­gi
  • Spores
  • Molds
  • …and more!

Does Fre­quent Wash­ing Pro­tect Your Floor From Micro­bial Growth?

You might be think­ing, Well, this isn’t an issue for us. We main­tain a rig­or­ous sched­ule of rou­tine deep clean­ing, includ­ing hot water wash­es.

While that is a good prac­tice, it actu­al­ly can con­tribute even fur­ther to micro­bial devel­op­ment. Those deep clean­ings, espe­cial­ly when used in con­junc­tion with extreme­ly hot tem­per­a­tures and pow­er­ful chem­i­cals, will scar and wear down your walls and floors. This, in turn, cre­ates whole new neigh­bor­hoods for bac­te­ria to fill.

How Is An Actu­al Antimi­cro­bial Floor Sys­tem Valuable?

As opposed to top­i­cal treat­ments or harsh wash­ing, a cus­tomized antimi­cro­bial floor sys­tem stops the prob­lem at its source. It has mul­ti­ple lay­ers that pro­vide deep, pen­e­trat­ing pro­tec­tion that can with­stand the inevitable wear and tear of your dai­ly rou­tines and operations.

How else is it effective?

Its seam­less, non porous sur­face pre­vents con­t­a­m­i­nants from reach­ing into your floor, increas­ing the effec­tive­ness of your clean­ing regimens.

Bio­sta­t­ic effects that are includ­ed in your antimi­cro­bial floor sys­tem also kill fun­gi like mold, mildew, yeast, algae, and bac­te­ria at the source.

If that’s not a floor­ing ally we don’t know what is.
