Anti-Slip Flooring For Bathroom.
Bathrooms, showers and toilets flooring are the number one location where falls occur in the house. As such, it is paramount to ensure that floor tiles in the bathroom can provide sufficient friction for users. Especially for elderly, senior and disabled at home.
This article will provide some ideas and recommendations on how to make sure your bathroom is safe. For both you and your loved ones.
To begin with, it is important to understand why floor tiles are slippery. Bathroom floor tiles commonly have an anti-slip rating of R9 or above.
These anti-slip tiles are better slip resistance and durable. But the porous textured surface may trap dirt, grease and essential oils washed off a person’s body when showering.
This can reduce the traction of the floor tiles in contact with a person’s feet. Coefficient of friction (COF) between the feet and floor thus decreases. Therefore, the floor tiles become slippery. As such, one must maintain clean floor tiles to prevent slippery flooring.
Here are some tips for cleaning and having a safer flooring tiles.
1. Use the correct bathroom floor cleaner.
It is highly recommended to use floor cleaners that can effectively remove grease, dirt and essential oils from pores in the floor tiles. Such cleaners include dishwashers. Or detergent with a degreasing effect and scouring powder. Strong cleaners that are acidic or alkaline can also be used. Depending on the material of the floor surface and anti-slip coating applied. Always read the instructions of the floor cleaner suitable for your flooring.
One should avoid cleaners that contain slippery ingredients. These residues may trap in the textured bathroom floor, making them slippery and dangerous.
2. Use Warm or Hot Water.
Use hot or warm water from the heater shower head to rinse away dirty water, body foam, shampoo and conditioner thoroughly. Highly recommended after showering to prevent accumulation of stains, dirt and oil.
3. Apply Bathroom Non-Slip Coating.
Anti-slip coating will greatly increase the friction between the floor and the base of one’s feet. This greatly increase grip and slip resistance. Thus, decreasing the odds of fall accidents occurring.
4. Use Microfiber Mop.
Microfiber mops or sponges can be used to prevent scratches and damaging anti-slip coating. Microfiber mops and sponges can effectively scrub out dirt clogging the pores of the tiles and spread the cleaning agent. But of course, brushing and scrubbing of tiles are good to clear away dirt, dust and stains. It depends on the type of non-slip coating applied and the floor surface materials. You can also choose a long bristle brush to avoid bending or squatting down.
5. Dry the area after cleaning to avoid slips.
You can use a floor scraper to remove excessive water. If possible, use wet vacuum cleaner for deep cleaning and extracting any dirt or debris on the surface. After vacuuming, absorbent towels or cloths should be used to take up any remaining moisture from the floor. Non-slip bath mats can be placed at entryway to dry your feet.
