Floor Finish for Hospitality
THE EPIC® SOLUTION
FOR Hotels, Restaurants, & Event Centers
First impressions are very powerful.
People notice when a building is clean, and this is especially true in hotels, restaurants, and any space intended to feel welcoming to the public. If a facility’s floors have lost their shine, show wear patterns, are dirty, have yellowed, or are marked up by scuffs and scratches, guests will take this as a sign of poor upkeep or even contamination. By transforming troublesome floors and maintaining their shine with EPIC High-Performance Floor Finish, the facility is most likely to leave a positive first impression on its patrons. Are you ready for the best floor finish for the hospitality industry? Read on!
SAFETY AS A TOP PRIORITY
Anyone that has checked into a hotel or restaurant when it is raining or snowing knows that lobbies and entrances can be some of the most dangerous areas of a building. Both finished and unfinished floors are often slippery when wet and pose a health hazard to patrons and employees. Additionally, these types of scenarios can be a major liability to the building owner. Luckily, EPIC ensures building safety by preventing slippery floors (and painful falls) with the use of its fine or coarse traction additives, Ultra Grip and UDT Aggregate Additive.
Getting the certification meant a lot to the Supervisor I sent to St. Cloud to get certified. He and the crew who got the training locally valued the investment we made to develop their skills. It was a good investment. The floors they applied your product to look great, and we saved a lot of money in reduced maintenance costs over the long term.”

IMPROVED INDOOR AIR QUALITY (IAQ) & PREVENTION OF ODOR
EPIC contains low levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. They include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have sho... More), so it is safe for use even in occupied spaces. It also eliminates the harmful method of buffing from a floor care regimen, which significantly improves the indoor air quality of a facility. Buffing forces chemicals, dust particles, viruses, and bacteria to be propelled into the air from the floor, posing a health hazard. EPIC keeps the air free of those particles because of it entails a simplified maintenance regimen.
Because tile restroom floors that have not been properly sealed collect foul-smelling contaminants within grout pores, maintenance staff often struggles with cleaning tile and grout floors. EPIC restores tiled surfaces to a better-than-new condition while providing a non-porous barrier. By blocking out odor-causing agents such as urine and bacteria, EPIC keeps restrooms fresh and odor free.
EXTREME DURABILITY WITH MINIMAL MAINTENANCE
In addition to eliminating buffing, EPIC also completely cuts out the need for stripping and waxing. Routine cleaning for EPIC only requires an auto scrubber or microfiber mop and gentle detergent, plain water, or any cleaner/sanitizer of choice. One recoat is only needed every 3-5 years in high-traffic areas and can be done in as little as 4 hours, which simplifies maintenance scheduling. Put simply, switching to EPIC saves an ever-increasing amount of time, energy, and money that can be poured into other priorities.
EPIC bonds directly to resilient flooring, tile & grout, terrazzo, and concrete. Plus, it provides extreme chemical and stain resistance. The abrasion resistance of EPIC can even be customized to meet slip-resistance and cleanability standards. By adhering to surfaces and penetrating all gaps to form a seamless membrane, EPIC makes cleaning and sanitizing a breeze.
