4 Other Uses for Epoxy Flooring
Due to their durability and low maintenance, epoxy floors have become the first choice for commercial warehouses around the country. They typically are applied over concrete floors to create a smooth, durable surface that will last for many years. Epoxy flooring also is very easy to clean, making it ideal for large spaces.
But epoxy flooring isn’t limited to just industrial applications or your garage floor at home. Here are 4 other uses for epoxy in your home or business:
Whether you use your basement for storage, or you want to turn it into livable space, epoxy coating is a great option!
Poured over the existing concrete, epoxy acts as a waterproof barrier to lock out moisture and prevent water damage.
Its durability makes it the perfect choice for a high-traffic area. Turn your basement into a den or play area for the kids, and all the food spills, dirty shoes, and messy craft projects will be no match for an epoxy floor. Cleanup will be a breeze!
With a variety of color options and finishes, you are able to create a look that fits your family’s style.
Water from the pool can make the surrounding area very slippery and dangerous. An unexpected fall can result in a terrible injury with only a concrete deck to catch you.
If your family likes to hold the occasional cannonball contest, the thought of a smooth epoxy coating may seem like a silly idea, and more dangerous than concrete. Fortunately, epoxy coating can be mixed with other materials that will prevent slipping and leave you with a safe and beautiful surface.
You can also use epoxy coating on a pool room floor to keep mold and mildew at bay.
Saunas are full of moisture from steam. Typically made of wood, this makes them a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and fungus.
Non-porous epoxy coating serves as a microbial barrier, making it an excellent option for sauna surfaces. It is also easy to clean and disinfect after each use, making it perfect for saunas that get a lot of traffic.
Epoxy coating can be used on both the floor and the walls of a sauna. The thick, durable layer can withstand the high temperatures necessary to produce steam and will last for many years.
Our bathrooms see a lot of use.
The bigger the family, the more often the showers, sinks, and toilets are running. With all that water and moisture buildup it is no wonder that, no matter how diligent you are about cleaning and ventilation, you still find mold and mildew in corners. How frustrating!
Water damage in the bathroom can cause peeling paint and wallpaper, rotting baseboards, mold, mildew, and musty smells, not to mention respiratory issues for your family!
This is where epoxy comes in.
Just as with saunas and pool rooms, epoxy in the bathroom creates a moisture-resistant barrier, protecting your bathroom from damage caused by excess moisture.
Epoxy can be applied to showers, bathroom floors, baseboards, and even the walls to keep your bathroom sparkling clean and mold and mildew free!
