Why Epoxy Floors are the Best Kennel Floor

Updated: Apr 28

Kennel flooring is one of the most important aspects of your animal care facility because of the way it handles heavy foot and paw traffic, affecting the overall quality of an animal's well-being.

For example, if you do not have anti-slip flooring or scratch-resistant flooring in your kennel, there’s a real risk that either an animal, customer, or employee could fall or slide. There are many benefits to installing an animal care epoxy flooring system in your kennel, but here are some of the issues we find most important.

Easy To Clean And Maintain Animal Care Epoxy Flooring

Kennel epoxy floors are very easy to clean and simple to maintain. This is due to a variety of factors, but the most important one is that the flooring system is seamless. This means that any bodily fluids that should get on the floor will not seep down into cracks and crevices.

This is vital for sanitary purposes because dirt and grime that get stuck in cracks can harbor bacteria and odors, which can have detrimental effects on an animal.

This could cause long-standing problems, damaged reputations, and force undue hardship on your facility causing unforeseen maintenance. To mitigate any surprises, it would be ideal to install an epoxy flooring system so that spills and messes can be cleaned quickly and easily.

Epoxy Flooring Is Antibacterial

Not only are epoxy floors easy to clean and maintain, but they can also be made antibacterial and antimicrobial, which adds an extra layer of protection.

These types of flooring systems are regularly used in hospital environments for the same purposes and it is widely known within the industry that epoxy floors can protect against contaminants and biohazards. This is why, on top of other sanitary benefits, epoxy floors are perfect for kennel and animal care facilities.

Protect Animals And Their Paws with Epoxy Flooring

Animal care epoxy flooring is made of special aggregates that can dramatically improve the safety of your kennel and protect the animal.

Epoxy flooring can be made anti-slip which can protect against slip and fall accidents that could potentially cause hip dysplasia or other sprains or tears, especially with animals that are hyperactive or run quickly throughout the facility.

Additionally, epoxy flooring that is installed in kennels, veterinary offices, and animal care facilities can be made with special rubber pellets that can protect the animals’ paws from harm.
