Epoxy flooring is a type of flooring that used to be considered to be more for commercial spaces than for a home. However, it is now being seen in even more types of businesses, in homes, and in outdoor spaces. There are many advantages it brings with it that have led to its increasing popularity in so many places. This article on epoxy flooring can help open your eyes to just how great it is and why it may be a good fit for your flooring needs. 

Epoxy Flooring Requires Very Little to Continue Looking Great

Epoxy flooring gives the floor a shiny and fresh look. This look is also easy to maintain due to the durability and longevity of the flooring. 

In commercial buildings, epoxy flooring can take the everyday wear that can include many people walking on it constantly throughout the day or heavy equipment being wheeled across it, boxes being slid along it. Through all these things, it will continue to look good with only regular sweeping and mopping. There won't be a need for professional floor cleaners, polishing, or waxing. 

In homes, it can take the dog's claws running across it, the kids spilling juice on it, and furniture being slid from one side of the room to the other. 

In outside settings, such as when used on walkways or patios, epoxy flooring can take on rain, snow, and high foot traffic from pets without looking weathered and damaged. It can be easily cleaned simply by being hosed off regularly. Epoxy flooring looks like it would be slippery, but it isn't a slippery surface unless something like oil were to get on it. 

Epoxy Flooring Can Have Many Looks 

Epoxy flooring can be used to achieve so many looks and styles. It is often applied on top of concrete in commercial spaces, and sometimes in homes and outdoor areas as well. Plus, this is a very inexpensive way to have the floor done. The concrete can even be painted before the epoxy is applied, to give the flooring any colour. 

Epoxy can be applied over tile floors, wood floors, or other hard surface floors. It adds a strong protective layer and gives the floor a real shine. Epoxy can be dyed as well, and additives can be used to help give the floor a certain look. For example, some glitter can be added to the epoxy to give the floor some extra sparkle.
