Whether at home or in a place of business, it’s important to make safety a top priority. Some of the most durable floors are also the most slippery, especially when wet. Fortunately, you don’t need to live with them like that, and a simple procedure can provide slip resistance. If you have hard-surface floors, there are several reasons to install a no-slip treatment.

1   Falling injuries are among the most serious. One out of five falls causes a serious injury, such as a broken bone or head injury. Falls are the most common cause for traumatic brain injuries, and 95% of hip fractures are caused by falling. These type of injuries can result in pain, and a long recovery, which often means lost wages too. Whether you’re protecting friends and family at home, or employees and clients at work, the investment in safety is worth it.

 

2   No-Slip treatment reduces costly and stressful claims. Unfortunately, you can be liable if someone slips and falls on your floors even if it was an accident. Members of our ever-increasing litigious society like to make a quick buck, and see this as an easy way to do so. Applying slip resistance to floors decreases the chance of falling, and, if necessary, may decide a court decision in your favor should someone try to sue you for negligence.

 

3   Slip resistance doesn’t change the look of your floors. Your floors will have the same appearance as before the treatment, so there’s no reason not to do it.

 

No Slip treatment can be used on many hard surfaces, including concrete, ceramic tile, glazed tile, quarry tile, and safety tile. Many of our businesses and homes in the south Louisiana area have these types of flooring installed, and a simple procedure results in a much safer environment.
