Educational institutions have certain unique requirements regarding flooring installations. Numerous factors such as wet settings and extreme temperatures can damage a facility’s floors over time if they’re not properly protected with a protective finish. However, with the installation of reliable flooring and maintenance services, your facility can remain both safe and efficient.
Educational Institution Flooring Installation Requirements
Certain types of heavy equipment and corrosive chemicals will eventually cause damage to floors without sufficient protective measures in place. Wear can also build up over time as a result of heavy foot traffic and heavy machinery.
A well-maintained flooring system will help keep these facilities safer and significantly less vulnerable to damage.
Reducing Maintenance Requirements
When installing flooring in an educational facility, you may think that maintenance policies aren’t a necessary feature, but the truth is that having these in place can help you save money in the long term. Everything from cleaning chemicals to heavy equipment in an institution will damage flooring over time if it’s not protected, and even light impact could cause more harm if the surface is already damaged. Joint damage is another aspect that facility managers should take into account.
Educational facilities can save more money and time by preventing these issues when installing the initial flooring. Keep in mind that damaged floors can also leave other equipment, supplies, and staff at risk of damage or harm in facilities, as equipment will require more frequent repairs when used on worn floors, and the risk of work-related injuries will also be greater.
Floor and Wall Services for the Education Industry
One of the best ways for an educational facility to keep its flooring in good condition is to install a new high-quality floor surface in addition to the initial flooring. This surfacing could include a protective coating along with a properly installed floor base. However, if flooring has already suffered damage resulting from insufficient protection, you can also contact professional flooring installers to perform repairs. Installers can also incorporate epoxy and other finishes for additional protection.
MSC Floors offers a variety of floor and wall services to help keep all types of educational facilities in good condition, including:
Educational Facility Concrete Repair
Concrete will eventually require repairs for varying degrees of damage. Our concrete repair services include concrete sandblasting and shotblasting, diamond grinding, floor sloping, scarification, floor flattening, concrete scraping, trip hazard removal, dry concrete cleaning, and dust proofing.
Crack and Joint Repair
Cracks will eventually form in floors as they age and experience wear, which can increase the risk of contamination and accidents. Joint and crack repair services can remove any existing safety hazards and help reduce the risk of injury, prepare concrete and substrate for floor coating application, eliminate contamination areas, and prevent bacteria buildup.
Concrete preparation services are needed to make sure that the floor coatings don’t peel, break, or fail over time as a result of inadequate adhesion. With the help of concrete floor preparation prior to coating, educational facility flooring systems will benefit from added overall efficiency while preventing the formation of any flaws that might otherwise allow for contamination and damage.
OSHA Floor Striping
Some facilities in the education industry may need OSHA floor striping, which we also offer to maintain compliance with all OSHA safety guidelines for both marking and striping.
Wall Coatings for Educational Facilities
Wall coatings can provide additional protection for certain educational facilities, preventing damage while making walls easier to clean and maintain. These coatings also provide more corrosion resistance and can help create a safer environment for staff and students.
Industrial painting may be needed for an educational institution in some spaces. We can provide painting for nearly any type of project. We offer aluminum and vinyl finishing, seamless urethane and epoxy flooring, drywall finishes, textured coatings, machine coatings, conventional coatings, and more.
Electrical Services for Educational Facilities
MSC Floors also offers electrical services for educational facilities through our division MSC Electrical. This can help ensure that all of the equipment in the facility functions with optimum safety and efficiency.
All of these services can provide your educational facility with everything required to meet safety standards and increase efficiency.
