Public bathrooms are high traffic areas that see a lot more water and moisture than residential bathrooms. That’s why it’s essential that you invest in a flooring material that is both durable, water-resistant and slip-resistant while still being visually pleasing. To help you choose the right flooring for your public bathroom, here are some tips from the team at Classic Waterproofing.
Gone are the days where concrete flooring resembled a parking lot. Concrete flooring now comes in a range of polishes, stains and decorative treatments, providing a cost-effective solution for any first storey commercial bathroom. Concrete flooring is incredibly easy to waterproof and clean.
Another inexpensive option, vinyl flooring is both durable and adaptable. You can get vinyl flooring in a variety of natural stone or hardwood patterns to increase the aesthetic appeal of your commercial bathroom. This flooring is also very easy to waterproof and maintain.
Ceramic tiles come in a range of colours, sizes and finishes to suit almost any space. Hard wearing and durable, ceramic tiles can withstand a lot of traffic for many years. While the tiles themselves are easy to keep clean, the grouting holding these tiles down are prone to build ups of mould and mildew.
A little pricier than the previous options, natural stone flooring is both durable and beautiful. Its natural texture provides natural traction, but the porous nature of this flooring means it will require chemical cleaning every year to reduce grime and mould build up.
Whatever flooring you choose for your public bathroom, ensure that you invest in quality waterproofing.
