Though industrial flooring solutions will last as long as you maintain them well, there still will come a time when these surfaces need to be replaced. Whether you are doing so for cosmetic reasons or to repair flooring with compromised integrity, the amount of time these projects can take will vary.
Here’s the process of what happens when you replace industrial flooring, and how long it might halt regular productions in your facility.
Prep Work and Time
The length of time it takes to replace industrial flooring depends on the condition that the flooring you are currently using is in. If your current floor surface is in relatively good shape, then it is simply a matter of cleaning the new surface and installing your new flooring. Typically, doing the prep work on a floor that is in good shape and installing the new floor can be done in one day, depending on the size of the facility.
However, if there is damage to your floor, project time will increase. Having to patch holes or cracks, access foundation issues, or remove excess moisture can take a longer period of time, which can’t necessarily be predicted in advance. . With that being said, addressing these issues beforehand is important to having an intact floor that is safe and will last you a long period of time.
Time to Replace Industrial Flooring
In addition to the prep work, the size of your facility makes a major difference when trying to determine how long it will take to replace industrial flooring throughout. Some resurfacing solutions are faster than others, too. For instance, it might take a shorter period of time to polish and resurface concrete than it might to install a new layer of urethane coating.
It can be difficult to say how long it will take to replace industrial flooring, as there are so many varying factors for every facility. But, here at CPC Floor Coating, we have found that it usually takes two to three days in order to start and finish a project. This can bode well for your Southern-based business as you will not have to stop productions for very long in order to have your flooring redone.
After the New Flooring is Installed
Typically, we suggest staying off of epoxy and urethane coatings for at least 12 hours so that it can properly dry. Of course, depending on the level of moisture in the space and the size of the facility, this time can vary. Your professional floor coating team will be able to give you a more accurate timeline after they have evaluated your facility and taken note of what you need to have done.
Though it may seem like an inconvenience to have your flooring redone, the benefits of doing so heavily outweigh the few days you might miss out of regular production. Your floors will look fantastic, their upkeep will be minimized, and you won’t have to worry about having your floors redone for quite sometime.
