Home and commercial floors can be equally susceptible to damage from moisture, harmful chemicals or other objects. It is vitally important to protect such surfaces through any means possible. And when there is an affordable method of protection, such as epoxy floor coatings, it is understandable that people will be interested.
What is an Epoxy Floor Coating
The concept behind the epoxy floor coating and other Floorguard products is to offer a layer of protection for the bare surface. When a concrete, tile or marble floor is unprotected, it means that it can be stained, damaged or otherwise compromised.
Concrete is the type of surface that suffers if too much moisture seeps inside. Even tiles and marble surfaces can be stained and cracked depending on the type of daily traffic they see.
A floor coating is a completely bonded seal that sits on top of the surface. It is most often used with concrete, but works with other surface types as well.
Advantages of Floor Coatings
When the floor coating is sitting on top of the surface, it takes the brunt of any unforeseen activity. If there is a big coffee, juice or chemical spray, it is falling on the coating. The underlying surface is untouched. Even if that stain is not cleaned right way, it can be wiped off the coating to no effect.
Some floor coatings even offer an anti-slip protection that can be handy for home and business owners. Say you have an elderly family member living in your home.
Having the kitchen and bathroom surfaces protected with an anti-slip coating would help tremendously. It would ensure that if there was a water spill that is unnoticed, someone walking over it would be much less likely to lose traction and fall.
Epoxy floor coatings offer consistent protection to bare surfaces and those who are walking on those surfaces.
