Hospitals and other medical facilities have certain special requirements when it comes to flooring installations. A variety of factors such as wet settings, high-pressure washing, and extreme temperatures can cause damage to floors over time if they’re not sufficiently protected with a protective finish. However, with the installation of reliable flooring and maintenance services, your facility can remain safe and efficient.
Medical Facility Flooring Installation Requirements
Certain chemicals and corrosive liquids will eventually wear down floors without proper protective measures in place. Damage can also accumulate over time due to heavy foot traffic and machinery.
A well-maintained flooring system will help keep these facilities safer and less vulnerable to damage.
Eliminating the Need for Frequent Repairs
When installing flooring in a medical facility, you may believe you don’t need maintenance policies, but the fact is that these policies can help you save money in the long run. Certain equipment, machinery, and debris will cause damage to floors over time without sufficient protection, 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 consideration.
Medical companies can ultimately save time and money by addressing these potential issues when installing the initial flooring. Keep in mind that damaged flooring can also leave other equipment, supplies, and staff at risk of damage or harm in hospitals and other facilities, as equipment will need more frequent repairs when used on worn floors, and the risk of work-related injuries will also increase.
Floor and Wall Services for the Medical Industry
One of the best ways for a medical facility to keep flooring in good condition is to install a new top-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 as a result of inadequate protection, you can also contact professional flooring installers to perform repairs. Installers can also include epoxy and other finishes for additional protection.
MSC Floors offers a variety of floor and wall services to help keep medical facilities in great condition, including:
Medical Facility Concrete Repair
Concrete will eventually require repairs for varying degrees of damage. Our concrete repair services include concrete diamond grinding, sandblasting and shotblasting, floor sloping, concrete scraping, scarification, floor flattening, trip hazard removal, dust proofing, and dry concrete cleaning.
Crack and Joint Repair
Cracks will eventually appear in flooring as the materials 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, remove contamination areas, and prevent bacteria buildup.
Concrete preparation services are relied upon to make sure that the floor coatings don’t peel, break, or fail over time as a result of insufficient adhesion. With properly performed concrete floor preparation before applying coating, medical flooring systems will benefit from added overall efficiency while preventing the formation of any flaws that might otherwise allow for damage and contamination.
OSHA Floor Striping
Some medical facilities may need OSHA floor striping, which we also offer to maintain compliance with all OSHA safety guidelines in place for marking and striping.
Tank and Wall Coatings for Medical Facilities
Tank and wall coatings can provide additional protection for certain medical facilities, preventing chemical damage while making walls and tanks easier to clean and maintain. These coatings also provide more corrosion resistance and can help contribute to a safer work environment.
Industrial painting is frequently required for pharmaceutical facilities. 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.

All of these services can provide your medical facility with everything required to meet safety standards and maximize efficiency.
