The use of Epoxy Flooring has been a revelation for many small business owners. Infact, studies have shown that not only has the use of epoxy floor coatings been on the rise lately, the total cost to business owners who use this type of concrete coating has actually fallen.
How is this so? Well, over time all concrete will absorb stains and become very dirty. Additonally, the concrete itself will degrade and may possibly crack or rupture along the edges. This can be very inconvenient as the deteriotaing concrete can pose a health and safety risk and may need to be replaced. A coating of epoxy resin (or epoxy flooring in lay terms) not only covers the concrete and helps keep it free of grime and muck, but the coating also helps the stop the actual detarioration of the concrete. So, when those splits and cracks would normally develop, concrete that has been treated with some epoxy resin wil hold fast, as their is minimal risk of the concrete absorbing any contaminants.
Another, additional cost saving that many people do not know about can come in the form of insurance premiums. You see, every business owner knows that general liability insurance can be an expensive hassle. The chances of people slipping and falling at your workplace are small, but the insurance fees against it are high. However, with expoxy flooring, it is possible to add a small component to the mixture and this will enable the coating to become tacky, or slip resistant. And, having this type of flooring on the ground is a serious deterrent against trips and falls. Many business owners find that this helps to lower their insurance premiums and really is an unspoken about blessing.
So, as a business owner you will not only save on cleaning costs, you will also save significant amounts of money in terms of insurance, maintenance and repair. This will far outweigh the initial outlay for the epoxy flooring.
