Medical Flooring: Will Your Floor Pass a Medical?

May 10, 2018

Research tells us that the physical environment in which patients are cared for and in which healthcare practitioners work has a significant impact on them. Therefore, medical flooring solutions must be spot on. When it comes to medical flooring, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, as each medical facility is different, and their flooring needs will, therefore, follow suit.

Hospitals, for example, are challenged with two distinct types of environments. There are those environments which are the clean, non-sterile environments that endure a lot of foot traffic, and then there are the sterile areas where heavy foot traffic is also a factor, but the potential for contamination on the flooring is a far more critical factor.

At Top Carpets and Floors, we understand that the right type of medical flooring solution is imperative to the overall experience that the medical facility strives to offer and to their continued success.

One of the most popular choices of medical flooring solutions is vinyl, such as luxury vinyl tiles, vinyl composite tiles or specialised vinyls.

Why Choose Vinyl?

Vinyl has come a long way since the 1920s and one of the main reasons why it is still very sought after in the area of medical flooring solutions is that it is incredibly easy to maintain and keep clean, i.e. hygienic. Medical flooring solutions have to offer this benefit in high-paced environments where the spread of germs and illnesses must be kept strictly under control.

Another reason why healthcare practitioners choose vinyl is for its superior water resistance qualities. On vinyl flooring, the moisture will simply bead up on the surface without soaking into the cushioning, making it very easy to wipe up. The structure of the floors is also such that it prevents mould or bacteria from getting into the flooring.
