(COVID-19) Best Flooring Practices 2020

(COVID-19) Best Flooring Practices 2020

Posted by Floormart on 10th Jul 2020

With the unexpected arrival of the (COVID-19) Pandemic which gripped the world, no one was prepared for the changes we would need to make almost overnight!

In the flooring industry we have been taking a fresh look at best practices to help combat the spread of the virus and any other future potential outbreaks!

What part does flooring play in the fight against virus spread?

It is common in a lot of public buildings to use carpets and carpet tiles in high traffic areas. Although this is not bad in some buildings such as hospitals, doctors surgeries, dental practices and care homes, carpets are not best practice as they can’t be cleaned and sanitised daily.

So what flooring is best in these environments?

When it comes to hygiene and ease of cleaning & maintenance you really need to look at replacing your carpets with vinyl floor coverings! Heterogeneous vinyl floor coverings not only add durability and longevity but also the most hygienic floor covering available. Heterogeneous vinyl floors, for example, are particularly hygienic as they are easy to clean and coated with a bacteriostatic layer.

Vinyl flooring is cost effective and will not need replacing as often as carpets and can be fitted to create an easy to clean, sealed non germ harbouring flooring solution.

What ranges do we offer?

Floormart offer ranges from the worlds leading manufactures in vinyl flooring such as Polyflor, Altro, Gerflor, Tarkett, Forbo and IVC. We understand that the range and choice can be overwhelming so why not gives a call and discuss your options. 0116 204 2515 we are always happy to help.
