Healthcare Flooring Ideas

The healthcare industry has its own particular set of challenges in flooring. For one, there are differing needs for each type of healthcare facility. Are you building a hospital, dentist, doctor surgery or Medical Center in Brisbane or Gold Coast? Then it would be best if you got to know the right kinds of flooring for each area of your facility. The right type of floor can do a lot to ensure the success of your overall operation. At My Floor, we’ve got a myriad of flooring solutions that suit the healthcare industry. We’ve got flooring that’s perfect for:

  • Hospitals
  • Entrance areas
  • Corridors
  • Physician’s offices
  • Waiting rooms
  • Hospital patient rooms
  • Operating rooms
  • Cafeterias
  • Dental Practices
  • More!

 

 

Each particular healthcare facility and area has its own set of needs. In general, though, you need a floor that’s durable, comfortable, and easy to clean. For places like operating rooms, non-porous surfaces with anti-microbial properties are a must. In certain areas, a decorative look is desirable. Waiting rooms, patient rooms, and entrances are popular areas for more decorative flooring. Let’s take a look at the best type of flooring solution for each site!

 

 

All patients and their families have to come in through the entrance area. As a result, you want the floor to be able to accommodate heavy foot traffic. In addition to pedestrians, there’s also bound to be lots of rolling load traffic as well. You can expect lots of wheelchairs, carts, stretchers, and more to be whizzing around. It’s essential to use a floor coating that can withstand this traffic and stay easy to clean. It’s also popular to use a decorative option for entrance areas. Also, colored and themed flooring and patterns can identify paths to care areas.

Your corridors are the lifeblood of your hospital. As such, they see heavy traffic throughout the day and night. Non-slip, durable flooring is an absolute must here. That way, your employees will stay safe while transporting supplies and patients. Coloured patterns and lines can do a lot to reduce stress here, too.

For these areas, we recommend going for a more decorative, home-like feel. Warm colors are a good idea. Highly reflective flooring options are also quite trendy here. It’s also ideal for these areas to also feature flooring that’s durable, non-slip, and easy to clean.

These areas need flooring that’s durable, non-slip, and resistant to spills and stains. Moreover, they must have anti-microbial agents on the floor. That way, no bacteria or dust mites can build up and contaminate the room. At My Floor, we have many flooring solutions that contain anti-microbial properties!

For these areas, a floor that’s easy to maintain is a must. As you can imagine, there’s bound to be a lot of food spilled on the floor due to the area’s nature. That’s why a non-porous epoxy coating is a perfect option. It will look great, you can make it non-slip, and the dirt and dust will wipe right off. To clean, all you need to do is to dry-mop and sweep every day. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

 

Now that you’ve seen what type of floor works for each area let’s look at our flooring solutions at My Floor!

 

Grind and seal polished concrete systems are fantastic because of their versatility. They can work inside, outside, in hallways, or heavy work areas. Not only that, but they can be quite decorative looking as well. For this reason, they can work in entrance areas and patient rooms just as well as operating rooms. The process involves grinding back the first few layers of a concrete slab. This exposes aggregates or tiny pieces of stones embedded in the slab of concrete. When you choose a grind and seal system, you get full control over:

The level of aggregate exposure

  • Nil
  • Medium
  • Full exposure

The level of gloss finish

  • Matte finish
  • Medium-gloss
  • High-gloss

Anti-slip and anti-microbial additives

The color and type of aggregates you embed in the slab

More!

A grind and seal system will be durable enough to withstand heavy foot and rolling traffic. No cart or wheelchair will put a dent in it! You can also ensure that your floor is non-slip and anti-microbial. Grind and seal systems work in:

  • Patient rooms
  • Operating rooms
  • Corridors
  • Entrance areas
  • Cafeterias
  • Physician’s offices
  • More!

Sometimes the existing floor you have isn’t suited for traditional polished concrete. You might not have the right type of slab, or there may be another type of surface already installed. In these cases, polished concrete veneers are ideal! Like dental veneers, they’re a thin covering that can lay over any existing surface. You can install polished concrete veneers over tile, timber, terrazzo, and more!

Polished concrete veneers are also affordable, and you get full control over the slab. That means you can choose the color, aggregate exposure, and more! You also get all the benefits of traditional polished concrete. These include:

  •  Great durability
  • Chemical and stain-resistant
  • Highly reflective and decorative
  • Non-slip and anti-microbial agents available
  • High-impact resistance
  • Long lifespan
  • More!

Polished concrete veneers work great in:

  • Physician’s offices
  • Entrance areas
  • Patient rooms
  • Cafeterias

Epoxy coatings are very popular in the healthcare industry, and for a good reason. Epoxy is a tough compound made from resins and densifying agents. An epoxy coating is straightforward to install over many types of existing surfaces. As a result, they’re a great choice if you already have existing floors in your hospital. Our team at My Floor excels in installing epoxy coatings and floors.

Epoxy is widely renowned for its hardness. It’s the most rigid type of floor coating that we offer. This makes epoxy coatings ideal for work areas like corridors and emergency rooms. The epoxy floor will easily withstand any heavy impacts or rolling load traffic. You can also add non-slip agents to the surface. That way, you won’t have to worry about employees or patients slipping on a wet surface.

Epoxy coatings feature:

  •  Amazing durability
  • Effortless to keep clean
  • Shine and visual appeal
  • Affordable and easy to install
  • Non-slip and anti-microbial agents available
  • Much more!

If you want your emergency room floors to last a long time and never wear down, epoxy is the way to go. Reach out to us at My Floor to install your epoxy coating in your healthcare facility today!

Finally, metallic epoxy is an excellent choice for healthcare flooring. You’ll enjoy all the benefits associated with any epoxy coating. That means superior hardness, easy to clean, microbial resistance, and more. The main difference is the decorative look that you can achieve with metallic epoxy. This is due to the metallic pigment that’s mixed in with the epoxy. Our team can achieve dazzling decorative swirls and patterns for you! Metallic epoxy is ideal for:

  • Entrance areas
  • Physician’s offices
  • Waiting rooms
  • Cafeterias
