Tile is a great flooring option because of its durability. It’s also a great flooring choice specifically for areas prone to moisture, like bathrooms, because of its impermeability. Tile doesn’t absorb moisture, an essential to the rooms in your home that are most likely to see water on the floor.
Because tile doesn’t allow moisture to penetrate the surface, you can be left with an accumulation sitting on top. And any sort of liquid on a smooth, hard surface can be slippery!
If you’ve ever taken care walking on a wet surface, or have seen a sign that says “slippery when wet”, you know exactly what we mean. The risk of falling on a hard tiled surface is greatly increased when you add water. That’s why we created Slip-Resist.
Slip-Resist is a proprietary Groutsmith product designed to make these naturally slippery tiled areas less slippery by improving the coefficient of friction on tiled areas. It works by creating microscopic pores on the treated surface that create a vacuum or suction effect when wet, thereby reducing the risk of slip and fall injuries.
Slip-Resist treatment is the perfect solution for:
- Shower and bathroom floors
- Porcelain bathtubs
- Public restrooms
- Exterior tiled areas
- Locker rooms
- Pool areas
- Anywhere that safety from slipping is a concern
The Groutsmith specializes in tile cleaning, care, restoration and repair and can professionally apply Slip-Resist to your tile surfaces.
