We frequently get asked, “can you make it non-slip and easy to clean”, but sometimes that combination just doesn’t exist. The lighter end of the scale isn’t the issue here because those floors typically have a light sprinkling of aggregate or a rounded particle that allows standard janitorial equipment such as mops to be used. (Tip – wet mopping can often push dirt around rather than pick it up. Using a wet vacuum to collect excess water, rather than letting it dry, works well)
The challenge comes when more aggressive slip resistance is required, e.g. in an abattoir. A mop will be torn to shreds very quickly here, so other options need to be explored. To clean these surfaces, you’ll find the use of cleaning agents followed by a flush to drainage or a wet vacuum to be more successful.
