Wherever clean clothes or linens are needed, laundry rooms are required. Laundry rooms are used in a variety of facilities, including hospitals, hotels, dormitories, schools, commercial laundry services, correctional facilities, dry cleaners, laundromats and more. Each of these institutions need the appropriate epoxy floor finishes for their laundry rooms to ensure sanitation and safety for those who frequent the area. Florock offers commercial floor coatings that can protect these laundry facilities and more..View Our Recommended Flooring Systems
Not all laundry rooms operate under the same practices, so commercial floor coatings must be chosen accordingly. Uniform cleaning services, for example, may use different laundering methods than a restaurant or hospital linen service. Understanding the types of liquids and powders used in the facility, along with their chemical concentrations, is important for choosing the appropriate flooring system.
Epoxy floor finishes in laundry rooms must endure harsh conditions created by the day-to-day operations including:
Unlike other commercial laundry services, healthcare laundry facilities must be prepared for linen soiled with blood or other potentially infectious materials. Additionally, they must also adhere to OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standards and CDC recommendations for infection control within a laundry processing textiles for a healthcare facility. Seamless, highly chemical resistant epoxy flooring finishes with antimicrobial, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties are ideal for laundry room areas. In healthcare, there is also the possibility that sharp objects may be accidentally mixed in with laundry. Consequently, healthcare laundry rooms must consider the puncture-resistance of the flooring they select. Florock’s aggregate filled, abrasion-resistant commercial floor coatings fit the bill for long-lasting floors.

Florock’s flooring is available in multiple formulations to suit the environment of laundry rooms, including:
