Shower floors are usually made of ceramic tile, but they can be marble, granite or any other kind of tile. Slippery shower tiles can be made safe.
The combination of wet tile and soapy buildup can certainly make for slippery shower floors. These slippery tile floors can lead to terrible injuries.
According to statistics, there are over 200,000 bathroom accidents per year.
This problem can be solved with use of the Slip Resistant Solutions product for the correct floor type. What this will be doing is a microscopic etching process that will not be visible to the eye. Slip Resistant Solutions Products will create a tread pattern that will raise the coefficient of friction on the mineral surface of the shower floors.
Once the shower floors have been treated it is important to make sure that the soapy residue is completely rinsed from the floors for continued safety. Floors need to be rinsed completely to insure the safety of the person stepping on to the wet surface.
When applying the products to shower floors we need to remember that these floors are slanted toward the drain. It is important to constantly keep the surface covered with the product. This will require constant movement with the application tool, whether that is a mop or a sponge.
We also have a product that will make bathtubs safe in the same way. To learn more about Slip Resistant Solutions Porcelain Bathtub Treatment.
