Is Your Brewery’s Floor Antimicrobial, and Why Does It Matter?

 Is Your Brewery’s Floor Antimicrobial, and Why Does It Matter?

We know that a lot is asked of the floor­ing in your brewery.

Just like you, it works hard, car­ries more than its share of respon­si­bil­i­ty, catch­es drips and spills, and prob­a­bly has tast­ed a lot of great beer.

With all of the coat­ings, treat­ments, and cus­tomized sys­tems avail­able, we have to ask the mil­lion dol­lar ques­tion: is your floor antimi­cro­bial? If you’re not cer­tain, or maybe aren’t exact­ly sure what antimi­cro­bial” refers to, the infor­ma­tion below is def­i­nite­ly for you.

Antimi­cro­bial Flooring

What Is an Antimi­cro­bial Floor?

Floors get dirty quick­ly. There’s no deny­ing it. Whether it’s the tile in your kitchen catch­ing drips, drib­bles, and the occa­sion­al Chee­rio, or the filth of an indus­tri­al facil­i­ty, the space under your feet bears the brunt of contamination.

As unap­peal­ing as it is to con­sid­er, floors also offer count­less hide­outs for spilled and dropped mate­ri­als. These spots are often out of the reach of clean­ing prod­ucts and tech­niques, mean­ing that they sit there and grow bac­te­ria unchecked. For con­crete sur­faces, there is par­tic­u­lar dan­ger around cracks, spalls, and oth­er dam­aged areas.

An antimi­cro­bial floor sys­tem is a unique coat­ing that includes addi­tives specif­i­cal­ly devel­oped to pre­vent the growth of harm­ful microbes. It works deep with­in the floor in a way that even the most thor­ough sur­face clean­ing sim­ply nev­er could.

Why Is It Important?

In short, the impor­tance of this kind of floor treat­ment is tied up in one word: san­i­ta­tion. Espe­cial­ly in food or bev­er­age prepa­ra­tion facil­i­ties, it is an essen­tial step that is often enforced by the FDA and USDA. Stop­ping the growth of mold, mildew, and bac­te­ria right at the source is invaluable.

What Should You Ask Your Floor­ing Expert?

Not every antimi­cro­bial coat­ing is the same, or of equal equality.

Here’s the essen­tial ques­tion: does the sys­tem work just on the sur­face, or does it direct­ly per­me­ate the con­crete slab itself?

The most effec­tive coat­ings include a pre-treat­ment step that reach­es deep into the con­crete sub­strate. That’s when you know you’ve achieved a high lev­el of protection.

Is Antimi­cro­bial Floor­ing Safe?

Antimi­cro­bial floor­ing adds safe­ty to your com­mer­cial facil­i­ty. It’s a con­t­a­m­i­nant-resis­tant type of floor­ing that fights the growth of dan­ger­ous bac­te­ria. Since it’s seam­less and non-porous, antimi­cro­bial floor­ing won’t devel­op issues, such as mold and mildew. With­out har­bor­ing harm­ful bac­te­ria and oth­er aller­gens, these floor coat­ings offer a safer work envi­ron­ment for your peo­ple, help­ing you save mon­ey in labor costs.
