Antimicrobial Flooring that Prevents the Growth and Spread of Bacteria

TERRAZZCO EZPour Epoxy 158 yields an epoxy terrazzo system that is resistant to the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. An antimicrobial flooring system like epoxy terrazzo keeps floors sanitary, thus having a great impact on the overall health of building occupants. Building owners can worry less about the spread of germs and unwanted odors.

 

An antimicrobial floor helps architects design facilities that are easy to clean and maintain while addressing infection control.

 

You may not realize that many flooring systems can contain high amounts of microbes that can easily be transported throughout a building. Bacteria can exist in every corner of a building, often brought into a facility by humans and packages, which can then be spread further to other buildings and even your household. For some flooring types, no amount of cleaning can eliminate the bacteria; but an epoxy terrazzo floor using TERRAZZCO EZPour Epoxy 158 can assure that your floors will be bacteria-free for the entire building’s lifespan.

Why Choose Epoxy Terrazzo for Your Commercial Buildings

 

In addition to preventing the growth and spread of bacteria, epoxy terrazzo provides durability, beautiful aesthetics, and low maintenance costs. We recommend when debating between choosing a seamless epoxy terrazzo system versus a terrazzo tile system, always go with a seamless surface. Seamless, non-porous floors are easily cleaned and minimize the area where bacteria can accumulate. With tile, the grout is commonplace for bacteria to grow, and will require frequent and difficult attempts to clean the floor. Specifying a product like TERRAZZCO EZPour Epoxy 158 greatly reduces a building’s need to replace or repair a floor over time.
