Your home is a place where you can finally unwind and spend quality time with your family. There should never be any safety concerns in your home. There has been a longstanding debate about epoxy flooring and whether or not it’s safe for residential use.
Epoxy flooring is a resin-based flooring option that’s widely used in commercial areas due to its cost-effectiveness and ease of being cleaned. Homeowners today also want to invest in this flooring system due to its benefits.
Is epoxy safe for the home?
Absolutely! Epoxy flooring is made of epoxy resins. Epoxy resins are made of monomeric and oligomeric material, which can be further processed to form the flooring material. Epoxy adhesive is epoxy resin in its liquid form. The main components of these floor coatings are epoxy and tie curing agent. The curing agent hardens the epoxy, making it hardwearing and durable.
Liquid epoxy is applied to concrete flooring once it’s sanded down for better adhesion. It’s absolutely safe for use in homes, especially since there are no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
However, during the installation process, we advise homeowners to stay away from the area being treated. Our technicians also wear protective clothing and masks for safety purposes.
Why is epoxy flooring used in homes?
More and more homeowners now realize the benefits of having epoxy installed and have moved on from the traditional hardwood floors. When applied by professionals, it can transform the look of a home and brighten it up.
Why epoxy flooring has become popular for residential use:
It’s easy to clean
Most of us today lead super busy lives, which means we don’t have all the time in the world to keep our homes clean. Homeowners look for ways to minimize the time and effort they need to put in to keep their space clean. If you only get a one or two-day weekend, who would want to spend all of it cleaning their house?
Epoxy flooring is a breeze to clean. The surface is naturally dust-resistant while being nonporous. All you need to do to clean it every week, or every two weeks, is to run a damp mop over it. The floor is so well-sealed that there’s no need for cleaning products. That also means you save a substantial amount of money each year on cleaning products!
You need to make sure no water is left after cleaning, as it makes the floor quite slippery.
It’s one of the most durable flooring options
You need the floors of your home to be highly durable since they have to take on the weight of furniture pieces and appliances, as well as deal with foot traffic. Durability is one of the main concerns of homeowners when getting flooring installed since having it changed every few years is expensive and quite an invasive procedure.
Epoxy is one of the most hardwearing flooring options available for homes and commercial areas. It can withstand high traffic, chemical spills, and much more. You won’t have to worry about your flooring for years to come with epoxy. If you feel like the shine of the flooring has dulled down after a couple of years, a quick coat of epoxy resin can restore it.
Epoxy flooring can be customized to meet any of your needs in terms of color, design or texture. Many homeowners opt for this flooring option as a way to get the unique look they envisioned. At CSS Coatings, we also offer a unique metallic epoxy that’ll really make your home stand apart!
