When planning for a new manufacturing facility, or a much-needed update of an existing space, choosing the correct flooring is critical. You may think that all floors are created equal, but nothing could be further from the truth. Choosing the correct flooring today can save you money and headaches down the road.
In general, preventing damage is much easier than repairing it after it occurs. If the floor is an especially hard surface such as concrete, you may think that it is virtually indestructible. In fact, uncoated concrete can easily be damaged by metal equipment that leaves grooves and gouges in the surface. When choosing a floor, consider all of the wear and tear that it will undergo for years to come. A polished concrete may be a better option for the long-term than a bare concrete floor.Polished concrete is resistant to chips and cracks, is easily maintained, and resistant to chemicals and spills. It also has a beautiful shine that reflects light throughout the space.
For an even longer lasting surface, choose epoxy flooring. Epoxy coating is easily installed over your new or existing concrete floor. An epoxy coating creates a long lasting, super-hard surface that is impact and heat resistant. Manufacturing facilities often house heavy equipment and can have thousands of workers. What better than an epoxy floor to handle all of that traffic? In addition, an epoxy floor can also be color coated to designate particular zones, direct traffic flow, or set aside areas meant for storage.
Regular maintenance is critically important to ensure the long life of any floor. Choosing a flooring surface that is easily maintained will allow you to protect your investment for years to come. Addressing spills immediately, routine sweeping, and regular mopping will keep your polished concrete and epoxy floors shining and looking their best without breaking the bank.
