What's The Best Bloodmobile Flooring

By Paige Cerulli Created: May, 2022

Like any medical facility, bloodmobiles require specialty flooring that can withstand the demands of that unique environment. At Greatmats, we carry several bloodmobile flooring options that may be just right for your vehicle.

Qualities to Look for in Bloodmobile Flooring

When shopping for flooring for a bloodmobile, consider the qualities that your flooring needs to have.

Comfort and safety are both essential. Look for a flooring that is forgiving underfoot and that provides some cushion to keep staff comfortable.

The flooring also needs to be textured and help to prevent slips, even when it’s wet. Look for a product that is also waterproof and, ideally, antimicrobial, which can contribute to a safer environment in your vehicle.

Next, it’s important to consider how easily the flooring can be cleaned. The surface needs to withstand frequent disinfecting, and you should be able to use a variety of cleaning tools on it, like a vacuum and a wet mop, so you can get a thorough clean.

It’s also important for the flooring to be highly durable. It will see significant, repeated use, particularly over the areas where patients sit and your staff stand.

Consider whether the product is backed by a manufacturer’s warranty, and what its overall lifespan is.

Finally, make sure that the product is easy to install. You’ll want flooring that you can cut to fit the area in your bloodmobile, and you’ll need a product that you can easily install long-term.
