Antimicrobial Floor Coatings
Many different industrial and commercial businesses are required by the USDA to have antimicrobial floor coatings installed at their facilities. This is because these anti-fungal and antibacterial coatings help to keep the area clean. This is absolutely necessary in facilities such as food processing plants, restaurants, school cafeterias, pharmaceutical labs, hospitals, medical research facilities, veterinarian offices, and more. These floors are designed to be very durable and can withstand extreme temperatures and harsh chemical spills in addition to heavy wear and tear and regular cleanings.
How Antimicrobial Flooring Works
Antimicrobial flooring is created from several different types of products that are fundamentally the same. These different products must create a non-porous flooring surface that is absolutely seamless. This way, no chemicals, contaminants, or moisture can slip between the floor sections. This keeps the area free of fungus, mold, and other factors that could contaminate the environment. Another function antimicrobial flooring has is that it is biostatic. This means that it features an agent that is slowly and continuously released. This agent kills fungi, mildew, mold, algae, yeast, and many other bacteria that would fester and grow in other types of flooring.
Flooring comes in two types, urethane-based or epoxy-based. Both function more or less the same way, and both will kill bacteria and prevent it from growing. They come in a variety of colors and other properties, so they can be customized to complement the color scheme of the area. Antimicrobial flooring is very easy to install and can be done so quickly. It’s very easy to clean as well, and they are completely non-allergenic and safe for all people and animals. Smith & Company Painting can install both types of antimicrobial flooring tailored to any facility.
