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?

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.
