Mold is a common fungus that breeds in business buildings across the United States. No matter how stringent the cleaning procedure is, your premises may have experienced some mold or mildew that’s proved hard to get rid of!+
Mold spreads in cool, damp spaces, and even if your premises have never had a leak or a flood, mold can still find a home, making it incredibly challenging to combat its growth once it takes hold.
In addition to causing odors, mold can pose a serious health hazard to employees, customers, and visitors to your business owing to the way it permeates the air.
At Everlast® Epoxy, we’re on a mission to educate and encourage organizations to take a proactive approach to prevent mold and mildew before it becomes serious issue that could cause health problems or structural damage.
By starting with the correct flooring solution, businesses can stop mold and mildew in their tracks and create a healthier working atmosphere.
Introducing Natural Stone by Everlast® Epoxy
In any business environment where humidity, spills, and flooding can occur, upgrading your flooring to Everlast® Natural Stone could save your organization from costly damage.
Although there are myriad flooring options on the market, there are very few conventional floor surfaces that provide adequate protection from these challenging conditions.
Natural Stone by Everlast® Epoxy is a resilient, safe, and good-looking commercial flooring solution for areas where mold and mildew could prove problematic—and here’s why:
Promotes healthier air in the workplace
Mold can cause hazardous symptoms that affect your staff in a range of unpleasant ways. It can induce skin and eye irritation, cause coughing, sneezing, and nasal congestion, and exacerbate serious health conditions such as asthma and other respiratory illnesses.
Our Natural Stone resin floors are created using only high-quality epoxies and a breathable aggregate that allows moisture to evaporate before mold can take hold, which promotes a healthier, cleaner environment for staff.
Eliminate mold with Everlast® VaporVent Technology
Most commercial flooring is laid over a concrete substrate—and one of the key ingredients in concrete is water. The permeable nature of concrete can cause ground moisture to rise, creating the ideal damp conditions for harmful microbes and mold to flourish.
This process is known as vapor transmission and can cause buckling, bubbling, or cracking in the floor, which is unsafe, unhygienic, and unattractive.
Our Natural Stone resin flooring includes a proprietary VaporVent Technology that creates a breathable, porous epoxy aggregate. This allows moisture to evaporate from the substrate, thus keeping the layers free from damp and mold and solving the structural and aesthetic issues mold causes.
Nonslip flooring provides enhanced safety
In addition to minimizing the risk of breathing in unhealthy air, our Natural Stone flooring is approved by OSHA and ADA as a slip-resistant surface, which creates traction so that employees and visitors can enjoy a walking space that is nonslip and comfortable.
Where can Natural Stone by Everlast® Epoxy be used?
In short: in any place where damp could be an issue for your business. Our expert flooring team has installed Natural Stone in a range of environments: from spas and swimming pools to warehouses and office buildings.
The key to the versatility of our Natural Stone flooring is the long-lasting durability it provides—so whether it is used in high-traffic areas or a basement storage space, the flooring will offer years of service with only minimal maintenance.
