What Is The Best Mechanical Room Flooring?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: October, 2020 - Modified: March, 2021

Selecting adequate mechanical room flooring may seem like a non-essential project, but outfitting this space with a non-absorbent and waterproof material that will protect a concrete or other subfloor from potential chemicals, abrasion, and weight and impact of equipment is imperative. 

Mechanical and utility room flooring will support anything and everything in your home or office relatable to electric equipment, water heaters, generators, tools, paint bucket supply, and other HVAC system requirements, so this is a space that should be carefully planned out. 

Without a substantial floor, leaks and breakdowns of equipment can cause damage and weakening of a subfloor, and noise from mechanical vibration can be a constant annoyance. Mechanical room flooring should be shock absorbent, non-slip, and resistant to chemicals, bacteria, mold, and mildew. 

Greatmats offers a wide variety of the best utility or mechanical room flooring options from which to choose, with solutions to commercial buildings and residential facilities like houses and apartments.
