Where Is Antimicrobial Flooring Used Most Often

By Paige Cerulli Created: March, 2022

If you want to maximize a building’s overall safety and hygiene, investing in antimicrobial flooring is one way to do just that. Antimicrobial flooring is treated to prevent microbe growth, so it can help to prevent disease-causing pathogens from growing on the surface. Ideal for many different settings, antimicrobial flooring can contribute to a cleaner, healthier space.

Where Is Antimicrobial Flooring Used?

Antimicrobial flooring is a versatile option with many potential commercial applications. In short, it’s often ideal in areas that are prone to bacterial development, like areas that are often wet or that see high amounts of foot traffic.

Antimicrobial flooring is also a wise choice in areas where germs and bacteria are particularly dangerous, like schools, medical settings, and even gyms. This type of flooring can help to reduce exposure to bacteria and can contribute to a healthier, more hygienic setting.



These products are available in many different forms, including rolls, tiles, planks, and mats. You’ll also find flooring made from materials like PVC and rubber.

You can install antimicrobial flooring in many settings:


  • Hospitals
  • Doctor’s offices
  • Operating rooms
  • Medical facilities
  • Laboratories
  • Gyms and fitness centers
  • Schools
  • Museums
  • Pools
  • Locker rooms
  • Food and beverage areas
  • Spas and hot tubs
  • Shower areas
  • MMA and wrestling facilities
  • Retail settings
  • Assisted living facilities
