Going green – what does that mean? From my perspective, it means doing things in a way that minimizes adverse effects on our environment. Well, most people do not think that by installing epoxy floors they are going green. I disagree. Floor coatings are now very environmentally friendly. Here are three ways you can reduce your environmental impact by selecting the right floor contractor.
- 1. A top notch epoxy floor contractor will install 100% solids epoxies that have 0 VOC, along with a urethane that has less than 8 g/l of VOC.
- 2. When you install an epoxy floor, you can increase the light reflectivity in your facility by up to 300%. If you brighten your facility, you can reduce the watts and/or number of lights you have in your facility. Not only does this reduce your energy use it also saves on your utility bills.
- 3. Epoxy floors are impervious, thus making them significantly easier to clean and keep clean than a concrete surface. By installing the right floor coating, you can clean your floors with minimal chemicals and sometimes no chemicals.
