Why to Get A Safer, Cleaner Commercial Floor Coating

06 October 2020

One way to make your floors attractive and last longer is to coat them. Properly coating a floor will protect poured concrete from germs and wear and tear. In a commercial space, especially with one higher foot traffic, floor coating will have your floor not only looking great but remaining intact for the long haul.

Concrete is a porous surface, meaning an untreated concrete floor will absorb water, dirt and bacteria. This leads to decay. Floor coatings can be specified for whatever industry you’re in. At Cap Concrete Coatings, we have experienced professionals who will know what coating will keep your commercial space attractive and safe.


Here are some of the benefits of putting a floor coating in your commercial space:


Enhances Safety


For an area in the hospitality or restaurant industry, you’re going to want something that can handle constant foot traffic, and things like plate drops, food spills and moving furniture. A floor coating can improve surface traction, making slips and falls less likely. It can also enhance wear resistance, potentially helping maintain the floor’s useful lifespan.

The floor coating can also be clear and reflective, allowing it to aid in lighting by reflecting light. This can help save the energy required to light the space.


Improve Cleanliness


Commercial floor coatings will not only protect and extend the life of your floor but can also contribute to greater hygiene and cleanliness. That can help fight against bacterial growth, contamination, and even the spread of germs.

Another area in a commercial space that often sees the spreading of germs is the public restroom. Not only do you have to worry about cleanliness in the bathroom, but you need a durable floor coating that can withstand all that foot traffic.

Cap Concrete can promise a floor coating that is slip-resistant and built with easy-clean technologies. Our nonporous coatings are 100% anti-microbial, meaning your bathroom floor will not harbor the growth of bacteria, molds, and mildew, keeping your facility clean and safe. We also offer a 5-year commercial warranty to guarantee your investment will last.


Variety of Options


For those of you with a showroom, you’re going to want to your floor to look as appealing as your merchandise. At Cap Concrete, we offer multiple elegant and high-quality solutions to choose from, ranging from the three-dimensional look of our Metallic Flooring System to the quick application of our Chip System. No matter your business’ style and needs, we have a solution that will work.

Our Chip Coating System is just one option we offer. It is specifically formulated and designed by experienced flooring contractors using three different layers: a topcoat, flakes and a basecoat. This makes for top-grade strength and stability.

There is also the Quartz Coating System, which works great for a space in need of high-quality flooring. That can be anything from an outdoor pool deck to a busy medical facility. This option is durable and protects the floor under even the harshest of conditions.

Cap Concrete also offers Solid Color Polyurea Coatings, which is specifically formulated for cold weather installations. It has the strength to resist chemical damage, along with the flexibility to withstand repeated freeze-thaw cycles.

All three of those options have a variety of color and design options themselves to ensure you’re not only getting a floor built to withstand the specific issues of your commercial industry but one so pretty you might catch some of your customers taking selfies on the floor.


More Resistant to Moisture and Chemicals


The coating seals the floor, meaning it is no longer porous, like a typical cement floor. This means is something – whether a drink, a chemical, or something like nail polish – spills, your employees won’t have to worry about the liquid seeping into the floor and causing damage. That can also make your floor somewhat resistant to corrosion, thus giving the floor itself a longer life.


Easier to Maintain and Clean


This also means it will be easier to clean your floor with a coating on it. Without cracks and holes, not only will that stop liquid from seeping into your floor, but it will keep everything right there on the surface. For commercial spaces with lots of potential spills and a need to clean regularly, such as a restaurant, supermarket, or a mall, a floor coating is a great way to allow for easy, quick regular cleanings.
