COVID-19 has forced businesses to pay closer attention to sanitation and hygiene than ever before. It has always been in the interest of schools, health care facilities, restaurants, shopping centers, and other busy enterprises to install easy-to-clean flooring, such as epoxy over concrete. Now, it is even more vital to consider hygienic flooring options to help keep your employees and customers safe.
Epoxy is appropriate in virtually every commercial setting, large or small.

The Sanitary Advantage Of Epoxy
Epoxy coatings are already a popular flooring choice. They are slip-resistant, durable, cost-efficient, and can be colored and textured with various additives. In addition to these desirable features, epoxy is also ideally suited for use in businesses requiring an extra level of cleanliness.
- It is stain-resistant and easy to clean.
- Disinfectant cleaners do not damage it.
- It doesn’t crack or chip, reducing microbe-breeding areas.
- An anti-microbial dispersion can be added to epoxy resin.
- It is seamless and nonporous, so mold and bacteria cannot seep into it.
- Epoxy can be coved.
Coved Floors Are Cleaner
Epoxy coving or flashing is a process in which the floor coating is extended seamlessly up walls or cabinets for a few inches or even higher. Coving is especially beneficial in medical settings, restaurants, bathrooms, and other places where frequent mopping occurs.
Coving helps prevent bacteria and mildew or mold from forming in the hard-to-clean areas where the floor meets the wall.
Is It Time To Replace Your Flooring?
Even before COVID-19, dirty or stained conditions could turn away customers or even get you in trouble with the health department. Now more than ever is the time to replace your worn out and damaged flooring with a cleaner epoxy resin solution.
