What To Know About Seamless Flooring Before You Buy It

by | Aug 21, 2015 | Flooring

Property owners have an abundance of flooring options to choose from. One option that is becoming more popular is Seamless Flooring. This type of flooring doesn’t have any grouting. Unlike floors that are left unfinished, a quality seamless floor will have a durable finish that will ensure that it doesn’t chip as time goes by. These types of floors are great for high-traffic areas such as garages and bathrooms. Prior to shopping for seamless floors, people more than likely want to know some of the benefits they will get if they choose these types of floors. They also might want to know of any potential drawbacks.

One of the things that people love most about Seamless Flooring from Hoffman Floor Covering Corporation or any other flooring company is the fact that it is very easy to clean. Since it doesn’t have any grout, there isn’t any need to try to get into crevices to clean the floor. The lack of grout combined with the floor’s smooth surface makes it extremely easy to sweep, vacuum, or mop. Some people are concerned about slipperiness after the seamless floors have been mopped. Fortunately, there are special additives that can be used to help with traction. Topcoats can also be used to deal with excessive slipperiness.

Another benefit that a seamless floor can give a buyer is its ability to resist intrusive contamination. Since grout can’t be used as an entry point, it’s hard for the underside of a seamless floor to be contaminated by something like mold. Mold can be a serious issue for floors that are constantly exposed to moisture. It’s important that the surface is properly prepared before a seamless floor is installed. Testing for contaminants should be down prior to the installation. If there is contamination already on the surface when the floor is installed, air bubbles can form under the floor and cause damage.

People shopping for seamless floors have to realize there are many different styles to choose from. The floors can be customized to fit a buyer’s likes. Graphics can be added to the floors for both functional and style purposes. For example, directional arrow designs can be embedded on floors that will be used for commercial purposes.
