Epoxy Floor Coatings
Having a durable epoxy coating can enhance the functionality of the room while also giving you more visual appeal. Epoxy has become more commonplace in home remodels or commercial upgrades because it protects the subfloor and makes your space safer. American Town Painting offers epoxy floor coatings for many different spaces. For customers who are not sure where to have a floor coating applied, this blog can help you narrow down your options and how your room will benefit.
1- Home Garage
Applying epoxy to your garage floors is the most popular area when it comes to floor coatings. The garage sees high foot traffic and tire traffic, so applying a coating helps to expand the lifespan of the garage.
Epoxy is resistant to scratching and chipping. This makes it a great additive to a garage where you store different items or work on automobiles. Once a coating is applied to concrete, it makes it easier to clean up grease and oil. Epoxy floor coatings limit the maintenance needed for your home and protect the concrete from deterioration.
Not only can epoxy be applied to your garage, but it can also be used on interior floors inside a home. Your basement is often a place where concrete is used for floors or walls. Applying epoxy to a basement floor can make the space more usable for different functions. Whether you use your basement for a home gym, man cave, additional bedrooms, music studio, game room, or additional living room, a proper coating makes the space safer.
Floor coatings reduce the likelihood of mold growth as well. This helps keep your basement free of harmful bacteria if moisture does enter the space. Epoxy is nonporous, which means that it stops water from spreading in the basement. Moisture under your foundation or at the ground level will stay there when you have an epoxy floor coating.
3- Break Rooms
Commercial buildings can also benefit from epoxy coatings. In high-traffic areas like restrooms or breakrooms, epoxy coatings make it easier to clean and maintain. This will save you from spending unnecessary time on cleaning or repairs when you could be focusing on other aspects of your business.
Your employees will also have a more enjoyable experience in the office when you have an epoxy floor coating. Epoxy floors are more slip-resistant and can be customized to any color or design which makes them a fun addition to your commercial space to promote your business.
Epoxy floor coatings are reflective, durable, customizable, and heat resistant. All of these benefits are great for showrooms. Giving your business a bright and professional appearance is something that a floor coating can help you accomplish. Epoxy showroom floors can help protect your business from unnecessary wear, while also helping turn your showroom from boring to eye-catching. You can add multiple flake colors to an epoxy, include glitter, or have the application applied in a pattern.
5- Operation Rooms
Having an easy-to-clean floor that is also resistant to wear from foot traffic is essential in healthcare settings. Operation rooms or patient rooms are used consistently and need to be extremely clean. Applying floor coatings to hospital or clinic floors helps them stay clean while also giving the space a calming appearance.
Epoxy floor coatings are resistant to chemicals, water, and heat. Many chemicals and cleaners are used in different areas of a hospital. Epoxy will hold up to these constant cleanings while saving money on repairs. In a fast-paced environment, having something that streamlines the process can literally save a life.
Another aspect of epoxy that can help in healthcare is slip resistance. Proper floor coatings are not as slippery as typical tile or laminate flooring. Improving the safety of your healthcare facility is important for your patients and the future of your business.
