25 Mar Top Flooring Options for Pet Resorts & Veterinarian Clinics
If you run a pet resort or veterinarian clinic, it’s important that you understand your flooring options. After all, every business needs a floor, but yours is under a specific type of duress.
Below, we’re going to explore the best flooring options for pet-friendly companies, so you’ll be better ready to make a good decision.
While it’s not one of the more popular flooring options, vinyl is one of the newer ones we’re beginning to see at veterinarian clinics.
If you’ve never seen it in person, a vinyl floor feels a lot like plastic. It’s also resistant to stains and will keep liquids from seeping through, just like plastic.
The main reason veterinarians like vinyl floors for their offices is because of how easy they are to clean. This includes sanitation. You can sanitize vinyl with just about common commercial cleaning agent currently on the market.
However, while vinyl is very affordable – another benefit – it doesn’t hold up for very long. You’ll definitely need to replace it every few years after enough pets have walked over your floor.
Next on our list of flooring options for veterinarians is ceramic tile. Much like vinyl, this flooring is durable, easy to clean and stain resistant. All kinds of large pets can run around your office as much as they like without this durable material giving in. You won’t have to deal with paying to have minor chips, cracks or other forms of damage repaired.
The biggest selling point for most veterinarians is that ceramic tile doesn’t stain and is very easy to clean. While some detergents may damage the glaze on top of your ceramic tile floor, as long as you do a bit of research beforehand, you’ll have no problem finding a fantastic option.
Polyurea will give you better durability than either of the above but is also extremely affordable. Our polyurea floors are made of:
- Dry sand
- PB 200
- PT 300
That last ingredient is for the topcoat and is so strong, it’s actually chemical-resistant. Although you may not worry too much about chemical spills as a veterinarian, you should feel confident knowing that your polyurea floor will be more than strong enough to deal with anything a pet can produce, and are one of the easiest surfaces to clean.
Best of all, polyurea floors can be installed in a fraction the amount of time other popular options require. This means you don’t have to turn away pets in need for a week or more while you’re waiting for your floors to get done. You can even have a tinted topcoat and unlimited color options added for aesthetic purposes without prolonging the process by a lot of time.
Additionally, our Formcove system allows for the floor to extend up the wall which is extremely handy for pet-friendly owners and businesses as added protection and ease of cleaning.
You’ve probably heard of epoxy before. This may be one of the most popular flooring options in the entire world. Epoxy floors are commonly found in professional garages, auto body shops, warehouses and more. People also use them for the garages in their homes.
The reason they work so well as flooring options for veterinarians’ offices is because they’re affordable, look great and are basically impenetrable. After all, people drive forklifts and large machines over this product all day long without any fear of how well it will hold up.
Furthermore, both polyurea and epoxy are anti-microbial and anti-slip. This will lower the chance of a pet suffering from an infection and keep you and your customers safe from the risk of falling.
You can even add Form Cove to further customize the floor of your business.
