If you’re upgrading your current veterinary office or designing a space for a new practice altogether, you might be surprised to learn that residential epoxy flooring is a perfect choice for commercial applications like veterinary practices!
Since one of the most important design decisions you’ll have to make is that of your floors, you’ll want to consider something that’s friendly and welcoming to both pets and humans, but also practical, easy to clean, and able to withstand a lot of abuse over the years — and an epoxy floor coating provides all that and more.
Advantages to Epoxy Flooring
While both traditional tile and vinyl have their advantages, an epoxy coating has many that other options do not. Epoxy often requires a higher initial investment, but it offers several distinct advantages. In summary, it’s sanitary, durable, and attractive.
When Cleanliness Counts
Since unfinished concrete and grout are often porous, it means urine and spilled liquids will seep into the floor itself. This will then create the perfect environment for microbes and viruses. But with the right kind of epoxy coating like the ones offered by Epoxy Technology Coating of Houston, the coating will stop any leaks from penetrating the flooring. And because epoxy is smooth, it’s much easier to sanitize than other flooring choices.
One and Done with the Durability of Epoxy
Apart from the advantage of cleanliness, the extremely hard nature of epoxy makes it highly durable to resist wear and tear from scratches which can be a common occurrence from pet paws in a veterinary practice. And while it’s strong, it’s also absorbent enough to offer protection for dropped instruments. Because of its durability, an epoxy floor lasts much longer than other alternatives, saving you from the worry of having to redo your floors every few years.
And They’re Attractive!
Epoxy Technology Coatings offers a wide variety of epoxy colors and patterns available that will match your interior and convey the level of professionalism that’s necessary to your practice.
