Child Care Flooring

Children need a floor that's durable, resilient and slip resistant. When looking for child care flooring, it's important that you keep these characteristics in mind. Tile floors, for example, can be extremely slippery when wet, and could result in a fatal fall or slip. Suitable child care floor types should promote the safety of children of all ages. This includes toddlers who are just learning to walk, as well as active kids who often run, jump or play indoors.

Rubber flooring is ideal for child care facilities as they are durable, resilient, stain and slip resistant. Rubber floors also resist common household allergens and deter mold and fungi growth. Not only does this mean a safer surface for children to play on, but also healthier indoor air quality (IAQ).

Another child care flooring option is vinyl floor tiles. Vinyl floor tiles have the same look and feel of rubber, and can be installed over most existing floor surfaces and subfloor types. The only downside to vinyl floor tiles is that they are made with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) a potentially harmful plasticizer*.

Learn more about suitable child care flooring types in FindAnyFloor.com's Kid-Friendly flooring section.

*Plasticizers are a substance often added to plastics to make them more pliable.

My wife decided to start up a day care and rubber flooring is the best type of flooring for kids.We just installed new rubber floors in our backyard and playroom (former dining room)and they are great. It also makes the parents feel more secure with the safety of our home. It's great! I recommend Rubber flooring in any home especially with children because its easy, clean, and safe.

Really great article. However, borrowers often use these loans over a period of months, which can be expensive. Payday advances are not recommended as long-term financial solutions. Depending on your state payday loans may also be referred to as a payday loans, delayed deposit, deferred deposit, or deferred presentment loans. thanks
