Epoxy resin flooring is a sturdy and long-lasting solution for commercial and industrial spaces.
Epoxy resin floors typically last between 10 and 20 years. However, just like any flooring material, it will wear out eventually and require replacement.
So, how can you tell when to replace your resin flooring?
Warning signs that indicate it’s time to replace your resin flooring include:
Firstly, if you notice significant damage such as cracks, chips, or deep scratches, it may be time to consider replacement. These issues can compromise the integrity of the flooring and make it less effective at protecting the underlying concrete or substrate.
It can also become a health and safety hazard by causing an ‘overturning’ risk for industrial vehicles such as forklifts.
Another sign that it’s time to replace your resin flooring is if you notice that it has become discoloured or faded. Time, exposure to sunlight, chemicals, and heavy foot traffic can cause the colour of resin flooring to fade or change.
It is important to ensure that your factory or warehouse is not only clean, safe, and well-organised, but also well-lit and welcoming for customers, employees, and inspectors. If the condition of your flooring is beginning to look unappealing, it might be time to replace it.
Additionally, if you find that your resin flooring is no longer providing the level of performance you need, it may be time for a replacement. For instance, if you have a high-traffic area, and the flooring shows signs of wear or is becoming slippery, it may be time to upgrade to a more durable or slip-resistant option.
If you notice any of these warning signs, you’ll need to consider replacing your resin floor. Regular maintenance and inspections can help you identify these issues early on and plan for replacement accordingly.
