Pharmaceutical facilities have specific requirements regarding flooring installations. Wet settings, high-pressure washing, extreme temperatures, and other factors can damage floors over time if they’re not protected with a reliable finish. However, through the installation of a top-quality flooring and reliable maintenance services, these facilities can benefit from long-lasting flooring that can withstand wear and tear.
Pharmaceutical Facility Flooring Installation Requirements
Certain chemicals and corrosive substances will eventually wear down floors without proper protective measures. Heavy foot traffic and machinery can also cause damage to floors over time.
A floor that is well-maintained will help maximize both safety and efficiency in pharmacies and other facilities.
Eliminating the Need for Repairs
When installing flooring in a pharmaceutical facility, policies around maintenance may seem unnecessary, but they’ll ultimately help save money on future repairs. Certain equipment and debris will damage the floors without sufficient protection, even light impact could damage floors further once the surface is damaged. Facility managers also need to take joint damage into consideration.
Pharmaceutical companies can ultimately save both time and money if they address these potential issues when installing the initial flooring. Keep in mind that damaged flooring can also affect other equipment, supplies, and staff in pharmacies and other facilities, as equipment will require more repairs when used on worn floors, and the risk of work-related accidents and injuries will also be higher.
Floor and Wall Services for the Pharmaceutical Industry
One of the best ways for a pharmaceutical facility to maintain its flooring is to install a high-quality floor surface when first installing the floor. The surface could feature a protective coating along with a properly installed floor base. However, if flooring has already experienced damage because of insufficient protection, you can also contact professional installers to perform repairs. Flooring installers can also add epoxy and other finishes for even more protection.
MSC Floors offers a selection of floor and wall services to help keep pharmaceutical facilities in great condition, including:
Pharmaceutical Facility Concrete Repair
Concrete will eventually require repairs for minor to severe damage. Our concrete repair services include concrete diamond grinding, shotblasting and sandblasting, concrete scraping, floor sloping, scarification, trip hazard removal, floor flattening, dust proofing, and dry concrete cleaning.
Crack and Joint Repair
Cracks often appear in flooring over time as floors age and experience damage, which can increase the risk of contamination and accidents. Joint and crack repair services can remove any existing safety hazards and help minimize the risk of injury, remove contamination areas, prepare concrete and substrate for floor coating application, and prevent bacteria growth.
Concrete prep services are needed to ensure that the floor coatings don’t break, fail, or peel over time as a result of poor adhesion. With proper concrete floor preparation prior to coating, pharmaceutical flooring systems will benefit from added overall efficiency while preventing any flaws from forming that could otherwise allow for damage and contamination.
OSHA Floor Striping
Some pharmaceutical facilities may require OSHA floor striping, which we also offer to maintain compliance with all OSHA safety guidelines for marking and striping.
Tank and Wall Coatings for Pharmaceutical Facilities
Wall and tank coatings can provide additional protection for critical rooms and equipment, preventing chemical damage while making tanks and walls easier to clean. These coatings also protect against corrosion and can 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.

MSC Floors also offers electrical services for pharmaceutical facilities through our division MSC Electrical. This can help make sure that all of the equipment in the facility functions with maximum safety and efficiency.
All of these services can provide your pharmaceutical facility with everything needed to meet safety requirements and maximize efficiency.
