Tips for a Non-Slip Garage FloorAugust 28, 2020
A slippery garage floor can only be a hazard for you and your family. Fortunately, there are different ways that you can deal with this and keep your garage a safe area. These range from quick fixes like containment mats to long-term solutions like epoxy floor coatings.
Innovative Spaces, Inc., a trusted garage renovations expert, discusses some of the most common solutions to make your garage floor non-slippery.
Quick Fix: Containment Mat
Containment mats are quite effective at collecting water, road salts, snow and other fluids that can create a slippery mess on your garage floor. They are easy to use, and they do a pretty decent job of keeping your garage floor dry. Moreover, you can easily store them away during drier seasons.
If you live in an area with rainy climates or light snowfalls, you might want to consider non-slip garage floor runners. These runners can be lined up next to your car so that you can have a safe, non-slip surface to walk on to your house door or to the front of your garage. For inclement weather conditions, indoor/outdoor carpet runners are often recommended. These usually have non-skid marine backing, and they are also stain-resistant and easy to clean.
Of course, opting for a permanent or long-term solution is still the best way to go. Epoxy floor coatings, for instance, virtually eliminates the need for containment mats, non-slip mats, and carpet runners. Obviously, this means less maintenance work for you. An epoxy garage floor coating is usually applied with anti-slip grit, which helps create a surface that is soft to walk on yet gritty enough to prevent slip or fall accidents.
An epoxy floor coating can last for years, making it a worthy investment. At Innovative Spaces, Inc., the floor coatings that we use do not chip, peel, or wear out. They are also UV-stable, meaning they won’t yellow or fade.
