Top Concerns With Clean Room Flooring

clean room flooring

Clean room flooring has a very particular market.  Because of the specific needs of the environment, the experts at SelecTech have invested time into learning about the common issues clean rooms and laboratory environments find with their flooring. Through our research, our team has compiled a list of the most common problems and concerns. But we didn’t stop there. We’ve also created an innovative clean room flooring solution that helps to resolve those problems.

Chemical spills

Clean rooms are utilized in a vast array of industries. In some of those, chemicals are a staple to proper functioning. For example, medical laboratories or research facilities often deal with materials like chemicals and other harsh abrasions.  When accidents happen, these materials can impact the integrity of the clean room flooring.

Finding a solution that is durable enough to withstand this type of accident has proven to be a challenge across the companies we’ve visited.  However, our commercial floating floors are your answer. While some companies claim to have waterproof flooring, this is much different than watertight. Our watertight flooring prevents fluid seepage to the fullest extent.


When an accident does happen to be able to clean the spill thoroughly to avoid potential damage is imperative.  This leads us back to our conversation about watertight versus waterproof flooring. Waterproof flooring can, believe it or not, still allow the liquid to seep through to the subfloor. This can be detrimental depending on the particular environment and liquid in question. Thus, a flooring solution that provides an unbreakable surface bond, or watertight flooring, is the ideal solution for clean room settings. Watertight floors allow for easy cleanup without compromising the integrity of your subfloor by holding the liquid on the floor’s surface.

Slipping and injury

Whether caused by spills or wet floors, your employees’ safety should always be a top priority. Injuries related to slip and fall accidents can be prevented with the right type of clean room flooring.  For example, floating floors provide slip-resistance, reducing the chance of potential injury to workers.


For anyone who has spent their days standing on a hard surface, you know the aches and pains that come along with a long shift. Clean room flooring should provide superior underfoot comfort, and FreeStyle commercial floating floors will do just that. The proper support will not only help avoid employee aches and pains, but it can also even boost productivity by eliminating fatigue.
