Why You Should Use Epoxy Flooring in Your Laundry Room

Finding the right flooring option for your laundry room can be tricky as the room has a very specific function and has different needs than the rest of the house. This particular room needs a floor that offers protection against high levels of activity, moisture, heat, and is able to absorb impacts while still looking amazing. It is even more critical that your laundry room floor is up to par if the laundry room is also next to or acts as a mudroom. Dripping umbrellas and mud tracked inside can damage, dull, or simply be difficult to clean up if the floor isn’t the right material.

The laundry room floor takes a beating from swapping out heavy appliances, moving rolling racks, and impacts from items falling off storage shelves or out of pockets. On top of that, if your floor isn’t up to the challenge then it could get stained from splattered bleach and other chemicals as well as warping or mold growth due to appliance leaks.

Residential Epoxy Flooring

Exposure to all of these challenges means your laundry room flooring needs to be epoxy flooring. While in general, epoxy is used for garages or office hallways but it is perfect to handle the needs of your laundry room as well. Not only does epoxy stand up well against high traffic areas without showing scratches or dents, but it is also non-absorbent so it will not stain from chemicals or absorb moisture to create mold. Epoxy flooring has several benefits along with impact resistance and general tougher use, all while remaining easier to maintain than carpet or other flooring materials. Epoxy offers a multitude of custom design aesthetics while it has you covered for every concern about the conditions created from the day-to-day operations such as: 

  • Moisture and heat
  • Very high foot and cart traffic
  • Vibration from appliances
  • Spills from harsh chemical detergents, sanitizers, and bleach
  • Heavy loads and impact
  • Abrasion from rubber or steel wheels
