Choosing a flooring material for a chemical containment facility involves a specialized set of criteria. Not only does the flooring need to stand up to the standard hazards that are present in an industrial setting, it must not be adversely affected by spillage and exposure to the chemicals in the building. While concrete is the standard choice for industrial flooring, its porous nature makes it unsatisfactory as a long-term solution without the addition of a specialized coating. Consider the following when choosing a concrete coating.
The budget for the flooring needs to be carefully considered, as it is one of the major criteria for a business. Whether the floor is new or an existing one is being reconfigured to meet a new need, a specialized concrete coating is needed so that the needs of such a facility can be met while still staying within budget.
Maintaining the floor in an industrial facility, such as a chemical containment business, could potentially increase the overall cost of the floor if special cleaning processes need to be followed. Coatings that allow for simple maintenance such as daily sweeping, spot cleanings, and weekly scrubbing with a mild cleaner can help keep the cost of the floor in check.
When it comes to choosing the right flooring for your company, perhaps the most important factor is if the considered flooring is really the right solution for your needs.
