Epoxy floors fight the bacteria too

Unlike concrete that is porous and can lodge sugars to feed microbial growth, epoxy floors are impervious to bacteria and offer a hygienic finish. When you choose epoxy flooring for your brewery, you do not have to worry about the unpleasant odor from the microorganisms or the permanent floor damage that can be caused due to permeable concrete floors.
