When you have finally made the decision to make the leap into an epoxy flooring system, as soon as the curing process has been completed you will be shown a whole new world of benefits; maybe benefits you didn’t even know you needed. And today, that is exactly what we are going to focus on, the many amazing benefits of an epoxy flooring system. Below are the most popular benefits of epoxy flooring:
USDA Approved Flooring
Epoxy flooring has the honor of being one of the few floorings that have been accepted by the USDA for use in facilities that handle food and beverages and even for use in the medical field. Epoxy flooring has its top coat to thank for this as its amazing seamless surface allows for easy disinfection and clean up. Not only is epoxy flooring easy to keep hygienic, but its seamless surface also doesn’t allow for any foreign objects like food or bacteria to hide in any crevices that are found in other flooring methods. So with epoxy flooring, you won’t have to worry about any food particles hiding away and becoming moldy.
Another fantastic benefit that your home or facility is going to gain from using epoxy flooring is the ultimate strength that can be provided by the epoxy flooring when it is professionally installed. Epoxy flooring can provide much needed back up to the concrete slab, making the concrete slab almost imperviable to everyday life. With epoxy flooring, your home or business facility will be able to stand up to heavy foot and vehicle traffic, the impact from dropped objects and even the use of heavy machinery. Did you know that the strength of epoxy flooring has actually been measured? Epoxy flooring can make the concrete slab up to 300 percent stronger and even last about 2-3 times longer than a bare concrete slab when it is professionally installed.
There has been a common misconception that has been spread along the years and that is the myth that epoxy flooring gives up its ability to be attractive since it is so strong. Well, we are happy to announce that epoxy flooring can be as beautiful as it is durable, and if you read the section above this, you will know its plenty durable. There are hundreds or even thousands of different variations of design that can be achieved with an epoxy flooring system. There is a wide range of different base colors and even tinted epoxies that can be used, even flakes that can be uniform with a single color or even more intense with multi-colored flakes, not to mention the use of metallic pigments that form the magnificent metallic epoxy flooring system.
The best part about the customization of epoxy flooring is that you can make the flooring unique to you, especially when you use a metallic epoxy floor as the desired finish. Metallic epoxy flooring is impossible to recreate to perfection, not even by the same contractor that initially created the flooring.
