Continuous foot traffic, dirt, and debris can make your floor coloring dull, dirty, and stained. Updating or renovating your salon can be a challenge. However, if you just redo your salon’s flooring, it can transform the entire look of your place
Polyurea concrete floor coverings are the perfect solution for this problem. They protect your floor from dirt, dyes, liquids, and wear while also looking fabulous to anyone who visits your salon.
Reasons to Choose Polyurea Concrete Floor Coverings
Polyurea Concrete Coatings Look Great
Polyurea floor coating can be applied directly to the concrete and is the ultimate flooring choice for salons. Salons seek to create a pampering, spa-like experience for customers. The aesthetics must be pleasing so that clients will feel they will look great when they walk out of the salon. Polyurea flooring can be:
- Colored or stained to match any hue
- Finished to resemble tile, slate, or marble
- Enhanced with decorative stenciled borders, medallions, or custom graphics
No other floor material gives you this unlimited array of design options and opportunities to create custom, one-of-a-kind looks.
Polyurea floors are also easy to clean. Hairdressers need to be able to recapture stylishness with the sweep of a broom. On a busy day, salons see clients back to back with little more than a few minutes to prep in between. Ease in cleaning is a must.
Polyurea floor coverings can endure heavy foot traffic, they are stain and moisture resistant, and (most importantly) they won’t harbor mold, mildew, allergens, or dust mites. A non-porous polyurea floor has no cracks or frayed edges to trap dirt and can also be applied vertically over cove moldings for a totally seamless basin that prevents water from getting under walls
Polyurea Concrete Coatings Are Resistant to Abrasions and Chemicals
Hairstylists work with sharp tools like scissors and clippers as well as hot equipment like hairdryers, curling irons, and flat irons that can damage a less sturdy floor if dropped. They also work with chemicals for changing hair color or texture. Salon owners, therefore, require floors that are durable as well as chemical resistant.
Due to its chemical makeup and structure, polyurea creates a very strong bond with concrete and has the ability to expand and contract with changes in the surface or underlying ground temperature. This means there is no chipping or cracking.
Polyurea maintains its color and does not fade or yellow when exposed to direct sunlight. If you want your salon’s floors always looking their best, then polyurea is the way to go. In addition, polyurea is a “tough” surface, resistant to scratching, water, oils, and chemicals one might find in a salon.
Fall protection remains OSHA’s top-rated safety violation and salons are no exception. With heavy foot traffic between stylists and customers on floors where dripping wet hair, chemical colorants, and washbasins can create a slipping environment, coatings that offer slip-resistance are a must.
Polyurea floor coverings offer safe and affordable solutions. There are many systems that increase the coefficient of friction (COF), therefore making it much harder to slip. Non-slip aggregates are available so that a salon owner can achieve the right amount of COF and conform to all OSHA slip requirements.
Minimum Downtime for Installation
Finally, for salons (or any busy retail or commercial environment), minimal time to install the new flooring and return it to use is a high priority. Polyurea cures much quicker than other coatings.
When you’re coating a concrete salon floor, one day makes all the difference. With epoxy floor coatings, it can take 3, 4, or even 5 days to complete a job. Using a quick-cure material like polyurea usually takes only one day of labor. Typically, you can walk on the surface 4 to 8 hours after the professionals apply it. This makes polyurea coatings especially ideal for businesses that can’t afford to lose business because of downtime.
As a bonus, polyurea coatings also have low VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and odors making installation even less disruptive to businesses. Typical epoxy coatings produce clouds of toxic fumes for hours after application making it unsafe for workers and clients. VOCs emit greenhouse gasses and are suspected to be a carcinogen.
