Should Your Floor Be Antimicrobial?

 Should Your Floor Be Antimicrobial?

In a recent arti­cle we dis­cussed the prac­ti­cal ben­e­fits of hav­ing an antimi­cro­bial floor in your brew­ery. If you missed that par­tic­u­lar post, you can take a look at it here: Is Your Brewery’s Floor Antimi­cro­bial, and Why Does It Matter?

Let’s take this same top­ic and expand it a lit­tle. What oth­er indus­tries ben­e­fit from hav­ing this unique floor­ing sys­tem, and what are the key advantages?

Antimi­cro­bial Flooring

Where Are Antimi­cro­bial Floor Sys­tems Used?

Here are a few examples:

  • Plants that process food and beverages
  • Restau­rants
  • Med­ical Facilities
  • Vet­eri­nary Clinics
  • Lab­o­ra­to­ries
  • Cafe­te­rias

In short, this spe­cif­ic floor­ing is best used in facil­i­ties where san­i­ta­tion is a high pri­or­i­ty. Depend­ing on the spe­cif­ic nature of your oper­a­tions, the FDA and USDA actu­al­ly may even require it.

How Do Antimi­cro­bial Floors Work?

Your new antimi­cro­bial floor is a seam­less, non-porous coat­ing, mean­ing that it offers no hid­ing place for con­t­a­m­i­nants to call home. The coat­ing also has bio­sta­t­ic effects built into its for­mu­la that not only resist the growth of mold, mildew, yeast, and bac­te­ria, but actu­al­ly kill them before they have the chance to devel­op. These bio­sta­t­ic prop­er­ties are also slow-releas­ing, last­ing just as long as your floor does.

What Are the Prac­ti­cal Ben­e­fits of an Antimi­cro­bial Floor?

  • Durable — Not only are they stur­dy in the sense that they can with­stand the rig­ors of a busy envi­ron­ment, but they also can han­dle intense, fre­quent cleaning.
  • Fresh appear­ance — A smooth, attrac­tive floor offers a more pro­fes­sion­al appear­ance in any facility.
  • Non-Intru­sive instal­la­tion — Your cus­tomized sys­tem can be installed quickly.
  • Non-aller­genic and harm­less to ani­mals and humans.

Is Antimi­cro­bial Floor­ing Safe?

As you can see, there are many ben­e­fits to antimi­cro­bial floor­ing. These coat­ings are USDA-approved and safe for areas like restrooms, ware­house floor­ing, com­mer­cial facil­i­ty floor­ing, and any­where there is com­mu­nal work. They’re skid resis­tant, adding safe­ty for your peo­ple and are non-porous, reduc­ing aller­gens. By adding these floor coat­ings, you will see a health­i­er work­force which will result in low­er labor costs and a more pro­duc­tive team.
