Flooring Regulations

The FDA and USDA have mandatory flooring regulations put into place for all industries and operators. FDA and USDA regulations are associated with environmental regulations for all operator’s floors due to the risks associated with handling food/beverages, and medical products in these facilities. Floors that are constructed for food/beverage and the health care facility industry must use a coating that is durable and thick enough to create a protective barrier. The protective barrier must be designed in order prevent contaminants from permeating the surface and must ensure a hygienic surface.
