Guests will continue to want comfort, luxury, elegance and now cleanliness and sanitation during their stay. As we move through to pandemic recovery many businesses will be forced to make changes so customer’s feel safe. Cleanliness and sanitation are now ranked much higher than ever before.

The Flooring Resource announces the launch of their newest blog post entitled, “Flooring Sanitation and Tourism”. Within this blog readers will learn more about hotel flooring options The Flooring Resource offers and what they recommend for maximum cleanliness and sanitation.

Richard Etscorn, owner of The Flooring Resource, states, “The pandemic has caused consumers to re-evaluate what’s important to them when selecting a hotel to stay at. Travelers are now placing a heavy priority on cleanliness, sanitation, and safety as part of their hotel selection criteria. Due to this shift in priorities, hotels are now focusing on flooring options that are antimicrobial, easy to clean, come in a variety of colors and patterns while maintaining a sophisticated and expensive look. As we evolve and consumer confidence rises, health and safety requirements will continue to be a priority for travelers. As general managers look to replace their existing flooring, they will see more options that meet the health and safety needs travelers are looking for.”

The Flooring Resource suggests these types of flooring for improved sanitation:

  • SPC Waterproof Vinyl
  • Porcelain Tiles/Large Format Tiles
  • Carpet Tiles
  • Carpeting

SPC waterproof vinyl is 100% waterproof which makes it an ideal hotel option for areas such as bathrooms, kitchenettes in hotel rooms, and spa areas. In addition to the variety of colors and patterns to choose from, the SPC vinyl plank product offer a look of natural wood and stone but at a fraction of the price compared to a true hardwood or stone floor. The ROKplank brand carried by The Flooring Resource is an American made product. Being American made, the Rokplank product is easier to access, has less wait time to obtain so flooring jobs are not delayed.

Etscorn explains “We strongly encourage customers to select American made products not only because it helps put Americans back to work but the products are very readily available and flooring jobs can be completed in a timely manner. Porcelain Tile and large format tile offer great value. This product would be a great option for hallways, lobbies, public bathrooms, walls, and even outside areas such as pools. The Epic porcelain tile by Milestone is another American made option that we offer. Carpet tiles allow hospitality venues the option of making a quick flooring change. The tiles are durable, easy to install, and easy to clean. Damaged or stained carpet tiles can be changed out quickly.”

Carpeting has evolved over the years as well as the carpet padding. Still a popular choice by many hotels, carpeting can hold dust, fungus and mildew. For optimal sanitation, The Flooring Resource recommends using an antimicrobial carpet padding or underlayment option for all carpet installations. Cleaning and disinfecting will still be needed, however, the antimicrobial underlayment or carpet padding can eliminate a lot of issues during the lifetime of the carpeting.
