Epoxy floors are beautiful and add an attractive aesthetic to any commercial or residential floor, but you may be wondering if epoxy floor coatings are safe for your family, employees, customers, and pets to be around. The answer is yes.
An epoxy coating is made from resin and hardeners that chemically react to your concrete’s surface, curing from a liquid to a solid on your floors. Once the epoxy floor is installed, your floor becomes resistant to abrasions, chemical issues, and impact; in many cases, it even becomes slip-resistant.
There are a series of steps and important processes involved in installing an epoxy floor, and the materials on the market that professionals use contain little to no VOC levels (volatile organic compounds). Professionals take the same precautions that a painter would, and they do not directly breathe in the material for long durations as installation is underway.
Installation should not take place around children, pets, or plants to prevent any accidental ingestion. Also, be sure to let your newly-installed epoxy floors to properly cure with your concrete floor; make sure the area is well-ventilated for 48 hours. Once the epoxy floor is completely finished curing, it is safe for children, animals, guests, family, employees, and/or customers to begin using the floor.
