    I didn’t realize that epoxy flooring is stain resistant. I can see why this would be nice especially if you expect that things could spill on it often. My mom is wanting to remodel her kitchen, but is worried about her grandchildren spilling food and liquids on it. I’ll have to talk to her about looking into using this kind of flooring to help prevent damage.

    I didn’t realize that some vehicles could move easier on epoxy floors like you point out with the forklift in the article. I imagine that that is why so many warehouses and business storage areas have epoxy flooring. After all, the more efficient you can make your work vehicles, like forklift, the faster you can get that work done.

      Hi Kyle, yes epoxy floor coatings will extend a forklifts lifetime. When a forklift is subjected to a harsh flooring environment, the vehicle will wear easier and faster. As long as an epoxy floor is well maintained, they will allow for forklifts, pallet jacks, and other vehicles to operate easier and more efficient. Not to mention that they will also enhance a building or warehouse visual appeal!
