Warehouse Flooring Solutions
Warehouses have specific requirements regarding flooring installation. Factors such as extreme temperatures and wet settings could cause damage to floors over time if there isn’t sufficient protection in place. As a result, flooring needs to be maintained through a combination of high-quality flooring and maintenance services.
Warehousing Facility Flooring Installation Requirements
Warehouses often contain a wide range of equipment and products. This equipment and certain chemicals or acids being stored could wear down floors without a proper flooring solution. Heavy foot traffic is another common cause of wear if there are a lot of staff regularly moving throughout the warehouse.
A top-quality floor will help maintain safety and efficiency in these spaces.
Eliminating the Need for Frequent Repairs
When installing solid floors in a warehouse, it may not seem necessary to include policies around maintenance, but doing so can actually help save money on repairs. Machinery and debris will cause damage to floors over the years if a reliable flooring system isn’t in place, and once the floor’s surface is damaged, even light wear can cause more damage. Joint damage could also develop over time.
Warehouses will be able to save more money and time if they are fitted with a complete flooring solution installed during the construction of the facility. Damaged flooring can also present safety hazards for employees and cause damage to equipment, as forklifts and other similar machinery will need more repairs when used on worn floors.
Floor and Wall Services for Warehouses
One of the best ways for a warehouse to maintain its flooring is to have a complete flooring solution installed upon initial construction. Flooring could include a protective coating along with a properly installed floor base. However, if flooring has already experienced damage due to insufficient protection, warehouse managers can also contact professional installers for repairs. Installers can also apply epoxy or other types of floor coatings to add more protection.
MSC Floors provides a variety of floor and wall services to help keep warehousing facilities in great condition, including:
Warehouse Concrete Repair
Concrete will eventually need repairs for minimal to large amounts of damage. Our list of concrete repair services includes shotblasting and sandblasting, trip hazard removal, concrete scraping, floor flattening, floor sloping, scarification, dry concrete cleaning, and dust proofing.
Crack and Joint Repair Services
Cracks frequently appear in flooring over time due to damage and aging, which can subsequently increase the risk of contamination and accidents. Crack and joint repair services can eliminate safety hazards and minimize the risk of injury, prepare concrete and substrate for the application of floor coatings, eliminate the potential for bacteria growth, and remove contamination areas.
Concrete preparation services are needed to make sure that the floor coatings don’t peel, fail, or break as a result of insufficient adhesion. With the help of concrete floor preparation prior to coating application, floors will benefit from a higher level of efficiency while preventing flaws from forming that could otherwise leave the floors vulnerable to more damage.
OSHA Floor Striping
Certain warehouses may need OSHA floor striping, which we also provide to meet all OSHA guidelines for floor marking and striping.
Tank and Wall Coatings for Warehouses
Wall and tank coatings can provide more protection for equipment through the prevention of chemical damage, while making walls and tanks easier to clean. These coatings also provide protection against corrosion and can form a safer workspace.
Industrial painting is often required for warehouses. We can provide painting for nearly any type of project imaginable, from floors to ceilings. We offer vinyl and aluminum finishing, seamless epoxy and urethane flooring, machine coatings, textured coatings, drywall finishes, conventional floor coatings, and more.

We also offer electrical services for warehouses through our MSC Electrical division. This can help ensure that all of the equipment in your facility operates with consistent safety and efficiency.
Each of these services can provide you with everything you need to meet industry standards and maintain compliance.
