Epoxy floorings that optimize hygiene in a COVID-19 climate
More than ever before, enhanced cleaning is a topic that concerns businesses across the United States in the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Maintaining a high standard of cleanliness is vital to protect the well-being of everyone who uses your facility.
Schools, medical facilities, and workplaces will be under scrutiny to ensure that proper cleaning procedures are in place to reduce the spread of coronavirus and other germs and bacteria.
The flooring and cleaning system you choose for your facility can play an essential part in reducing the risk of transmitting the virus within the building. Installing hygienic epoxy flooring is just one way your business can maintain a sanitary environment for staff and visitors to your facility.
An EPA-approved cleaning system
The Everlast® Epoxy Cleaning System includes Vital Oxide, which has EPA approval for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The substance is a registered hospital disinfectant, which is tough on germs and bacteria, but gentle to users, as it’s nonirritating to skin and NSF-certified for surfaces that come in contact with food.
Our cleaning system for epoxy surfaces has been designed to provide a long lifespan of safe, resilient flooring in commercial and industrial settings. Used as part of your everyday cleaning routine, the powerful micelle cleaning action will wash away contaminants, including fats, greases, oils, and sugars—without damaging the cleaning surface.
Take the hard work out of staying hygienically clean
Keeping floors clean can be hard work for janitorial staff at the best of times, but even more so during a pandemic. Everlast® Epoxy floors are easy to maintain and sanitize—and will NEVER need mopping.
Our flooring system is manufactured using marble stones to give it an anti-skid surface. The slightly textured surface isn’t “moppable,” as the slip-resistant flooring will tear up mopheads. So, we’ve devised a cleaning system that is easier and faster than the traditional mop and bucket.
The Everlast® Cleaning System can simply be poured across the floor, left to work its magic, and then rinsed down the drain using water and a squeegee. In addition to cleaning the floor, the cleaning fluid also prevents the buildup of grease and fats in your drains.
For a deeper clean that saves even more time, our system is also compatible with automatic scrubbers or extractor floor cleaning machines.
Tough floors for hard-working environments
Many facilities, including commercial kitchens, hospitals, and daycare centers, use harsh chemicals in a bid to stop the spread of bacteria. Most flooring systems are not designed to withstand repeated use of strong detergents, resulting in damage to the surface. Hygienic epoxy flooring can withstand cleaning chemicals without degrading, peeling, or lifting.
Choosing an epoxy resin floor will extend the life cycle of your floor and reduce the risk of a failed floor.
No cracks or seams for bacteria to hide in
Tiled or concrete floors are a popular choice in many commercial and industrial environments, but they are less effective than epoxy resin at inhibiting bacterial growth.
Concrete floors are highly porous, which gives pathogens a cozy hiding place, and the joins between tiles can also provide a haven for the spread of pathogens. In contrast, Everlast® Epoxy flooring is poured directly onto your existing floor, forming a bond that is seamless and nonporous.
Our flooring also includes an EPA-registered antimicrobial component to impede the growth of microorganisms and further protect the surface. This additive is dispersed through every layer of the resin, so performance will not degrade over time—no matter how hard you make your flooring work.
Choose hygienic Everlast® Epoxy for your facility
Preventing the spread of germs and viruses in hospitals is more important than ever before. Even in nonmedical facilities, implementation of a rigorous cleaning and sanitizing schedule to help protect your staff and visitors is necessary.
