Epoxy and polyaspartic flooring is a popular option that has been used for years in various settings such as commercial, industrial, and medical facilities. However, epoxy and polyaspartic flooring is not just limited to commercial spaces. It's becoming increasingly popular among homeowners for many reasons, including its ease of maintenance, durability, and cost-effectiveness. Additionally, epoxy and polyaspartic flooring from GarageExperts® offers several potential health benefits that contribute to a safer, cleaner, and healthier living environment for you and your family.
Here are some of the health benefits of installing our Garage FX® flooring system in your home:
1. Easy to Clean
GarageExperts® Garage FX® flooring system creates a seamless and non-porous surface that resists the absorption of spills, moisture, and odors. This feature simplifies the cleaning process and reduces the presence of allergens, bacteria, and mold that can accumulate in porous materials. Regular sweeping, vacuuming, and occasional mopping are generally sufficient to keep the floor clean and hygienic. Garage FX® epoxy and polyaspartic flooring’s easy-to-clean nature is also beneficial for families with young children, pets, or those with mobility challenges, as it eliminates the need for heavy-duty cleaning equipment or harsh chemicals.
2. Allergen Reduction
Dust, pollen, pet dander, and other allergens are common in homes and are known to cause respiratory allergies or sensitivities. Epoxy and polyaspartic floors provide a smooth, seamless finish, making it difficult for allergens to accumulate. In addition, the lack of seams in the flooring makes it difficult for mold and mildew to grow, further reducing allergenic reactions. This characteristic of a GarageExperts® flooring system can improve indoor air quality and help alleviate allergens in your home.
3. Durability and Longevity
Epoxy and polyaspartic floors are highly durable and resistant to scratches, stains, and damage. This durability ensures that the floor remains in good condition for an extended period, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacement. Additionally, the Garage FX® system’s resistance to wear and tear minimizes dust and debris generated from everyday use. Ultimately, it contributes to a cleaner and healthier living space, particularly for those with respiratory allergies or sensitivities.
4. Slip-Resistance and Safety
GarageExperts® flooring offers excellent slip resistance when wet or dry due to its textured surface that provides good traction. This feature makes epoxy and polyaspartic flooring an ideal solution for areas that are prone to slips and falls such as the garage, kitchen, or bathroom. Furthermore, some Garage FX® system finishes incorporate anti-slip properties, providing a secure surface that reduces the risk of slips and falls in all areas of a home. By opting for epoxy and polyaspartic flooring, you can have peace of mind knowing that your home is a safe and secure environment for your family.
5. Low VOC Options
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are chemicals commonly found in many traditional flooring materials, such as vinyl, carpet, and hardwood. These chemicals can emit harmful fumes known to cause respiratory issues, headaches, and other health concerns. However, low VOC water-based epoxy materials are available as a "green" alternative. The Garage FX® system is formulated with low to no amounts of VOCs, making them a healthier alternative for families with allergies, asthma, or sensitivities to chemicals. Choosing low VOC flooring from GarageExperts® minimizes exposure to harmful chemicals and improves indoor air quality, making it safer for you and your family.
Garage FX® flooring from GarageExperts® offers many health benefits beyond its aesthetic appeal and durability. It provides a safer, cleaner, and healthier living environment by aiding in the reduction of allergens, minimizing harmful chemicals, and simplifying maintenance. Furthermore, epoxy and polyaspartic flooring is affordable, long-lasting, and versatile, making it a suitable option for various rooms in your home. Whether you're planning a renovation, or simply seeking a smart flooring option for your home, our Garage FX® system can help you achieve a comfortable, healthy, and safe living environment for you and your loved ones.
