 How Do You Choose the Best Industrial Flooring Option for Your Needs?

When peo­ple think of floor­ing options for their homes, count­less ideas come to mind. The style and mate­r­i­al options are incred­i­bly diverse, rang­ing from eco-friend­ly bam­boo to icy cold stone.

And yet, when many busi­ness own­ers or prop­er­ty man­agers con­sid­er floor­ing for their indus­tri­al facil­i­ty, they feel that their options are lim­it­ed to work­ing with their plain con­crete and hop­ing for the best. Sure, con­crete is a com­mon and ver­sa­tile start­ing point, but if you take the time to browse the ser­vices offered by an indus­tri­al floor­ing pro­fes­sion­al, you’ll begin to see that there are many fan­tas­tic ways to pro­tect and enhance your floor’s surface.

Which Floor­ing Is Best for Industries?

The best floor­ing for com­mer­cial indus­tries, ware­hous­es, facil­i­ties, and plants is epoxy. Not only are they able to with­stand heavy loads like com­mer­cial machin­ery and equip­ment, but they are also mois­ture resis­tant and aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleasing.

Indus­tri­al Floor­ing Options: Match­ing Your Needs with the Right Service

To help you begin the process of explor­ing your options, we’ve put togeth­er a list of questions/​considerations for you.

  • Don’t rush — We under­stand the need for meet­ing dead­lines and find­ing a solu­tion as soon as pos­si­ble, but it still is cru­cial to slow down dur­ing your deci­sion-mak­ing process (at least for a lit­tle bit!). Take the time to real­ly research your options, for both the prod­ucts and pro­fes­sion­als that you choose to work with.
  • Con­sid­er what will be asked of your floor - Every work­space is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, and cer­tain indus­tries have very spe­cif­ic needs. Your floors will inevitably be put through a lot, so con­sid­er what your new sys­tem will need to be capa­ble of. Impact/​abrasion resis­tance? Aes­thet­ic quality/​durability? Ther­mal shock? Does it need to be antimi­cro­bial to keep you in accor­dance with FDA regulations?
  • Be wary of band-aid” solu­tions — If your floor is in poor con­di­tion and you are tempt­ed to try sim­ply giv­ing it an aes­thet­ic upgrade, think through the long-term ram­i­fi­ca­tions. If a car has a rust issue, you nev­er would sim­ply paint over it. Why? Because the larg­er issue is still lurk­ing and will resur­face again, worse than ever before. The same prin­ci­ple applies to your floor.
  • Get to know your indus­tri­al floor­ing pro­fes­sion­al — Many pros are hap­py to sim­ply sell what they want to sell, but few are will­ing to real­ly lis­ten to your spe­cif­ic needs. Research and find a floor­ing expert who has a track record of con­sis­tent ser­vice and the kind of exper­tise that you can feel con­fi­dent align­ing your­self with.
