Institutional Flooring

What kind of flooring is best for an institution? This is a question that many people face when they are renovating or building a new institution. There are many different types of flooring to choose from, and each type has its own benefits and drawbacks.

Tile is a popular choice for institutional flooring. It is durable and easy to clean, and it can be installed in a variety of patterns. However, it can be expensive to install and can be difficult to repair if it becomes damaged.

Linoleum is another popular choice for institutional flooring. It is durable, affordable, and easy to maintain. However, it can be stained easily and may not be as attractive as some other types of flooring.

Vinyl is a common choice for institutional flooring. It is affordable and easy to clean and maintain. However, it can absorb heat and become slippery when wet, so it may not be the best choice for institutions that need flooring that people can walk on without shoes or socks.

Carpeting is an option only if the institution will be closed during cold weather months because carpeting tends to retain heat more than other types of flooring. Carpeting is expensive and difficult to clean but provides good insulation.

Plastic sheeting or painted concrete can also be used in certain cases. These materials are especially useful for institutions located in hot climates because they do not absorb heat like tile and linoleum do. They are also easy to clean.

Benefits Of Installing Sustainable Flooring In Institutions

Educational institutions play a significant role in our society. Sustainable flooring in schools provides students, teachers, and staff with a variety of benefits, including:

  • Improved Air Quality: Flooring systems that are designed to contain low-emitting materials can help improve classroom, hallway, and office air quality. This is especially useful for people with asthma, seasonal allergies, or other respiratory problems.
  • LEED Green Building Credits: Sustainable flooring, like earth-toned cork tiles or compressed earth aggregate, can provide LEED credits as part of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system of the US Green Building Council. This can help schools earn tax advantages and other financial incentives.
  • Improved Image: An institution forward-thinking reputation may be enhanced by eco-friendly flooring and other aspects of sustainable building. Using these advantages in advertisements might help set apart an institution from the competition by appealing to today’s environmentally conscious students and parents.

Sustainable flooring is a good investment for institutions wanting to offer a healthy working or learning environment while also demonstrating their commitment to a better global future.

Benefits Of Sustainable Flooring Installation

Some types of sustainable flooring, such as cork, have the advantage of reducing waste during installation. The majority of floor covering solutions, including various plank, rolled and sheet goods, are prefabricated and must be cut and fitted into the shape of a specific area. This can result in a large amount of “cut-off” waste — leftovers that are unneeded and have to be disposed of according to local legislation. The disposal of this sort of construction debris is both costly and contributes to landfills. As a consequence, the client has paid for new flooring but will end up discarding it.

Sustainable resinous floor coating systems provide a distinct benefit when compared with prefabricated flooring. Because resinous coatings are applied on site by the installer to form a unique, fluid-applied flooring surface, there is no waste cut-off.

Usable Life of Sustainable Flooring

Sustainable flooring is often called long-lasting, making it an appealing option for those looking to extend the life of their existing hardwood or laminate flooring. However, not every type of sustainable flooring has the potential for a lengthy operational life that some people may anticipate. Many surfaces, for example, can develop permanent dents under the weight of hefty furniture or when objects are dropped.

The increased use of harsh disinfectants and sanitizing chemicals, as well as the more rigorous cleaning procedures now employed, can all lead to greater staining and deterioration of less-effective flooring types. The extra cleaning in high-traffic areas causes additional abrasion to the floor surfaces. Standard commercial flooring products, on the other hand, may not be built to endure this kind of usage and can develop wear patterns and damage sooner than anticipated. This is hardly the result that school officials and budget planners were looking for.

While some long-lasting flooring choices have replacement cycles that last several years, others have much longer periods. Epoxy and other fluid-applied concrete floor coating systems produced of industrial-grade resins, for example, can look great and function effectively for many years or even decades — a benefit to institutional budgets as well as the environment.
