Slips and falls on wet tile floors are dangerous and sometimes fatal. Falls in the home account for over 8 million hospital emergency room visits annually. Serious hip fractures, broken bones, and head injuries are attributed to slips on wet floors, particularly in the bathroom, kitchen and tub areas. With the elderly, 40% of these falls lead to nursing home admissions. – National Institute on Aging and the NFSI.
Traditionally, homeowners have accepted the fact that most surfaces are dangerously slippery when wet and that the only way to avoid accidents was to be constantly watchful and careful. While caution is important when dealing with slippery floors and bathtubs, it is not the solution to the slip/fall problem.
Imagine a slip-resistant application by Tru-Clean Surface Care that is state of the art and provides slip resistance the moment liquids come into contact with a treated surface. – From high-gloss ceramic and porcelain tile – to bathtubs and pool areas, your hard surfaces can achieve a slip-resistant coating to help prevent dangerous slips.
How Does Your Service Help Make Surfaces Slip Resistant?
Our technicians will thoroughly clean the area to be treated and then apply a product that will microscopically etch an invisible tread on the surface. The surface will remain slip-resistant for 3-10 years (depending on the level of protection requested).
We can apply slip resistance to ceramic, porcelain, quarry tile, marble, granite, terrazzo, cement, and most bathtubs.
Slip resistance application provides safety in the home as well as peace of mind to loved ones who may live out of state and are concerned about a parent’s safety in wet areas.
