Middle Tennessee Flooring Safety Hazards

Safety is a huge factor when owning a business. Not just here in Nashville, but anywhere in America. Ozburn-Hessey understands this priority and that’s why they are constantly recommended throughout Middle Tennessee for commercial carpet and wood floor installation.

A big worry as a business owner is having a customer come into your Murfreesboro or Nashville location and injuring himself/herself on the carpet, hardwood  or vinyl flooring.  Not only can this be hurtful for the customer but it can be a legal responsibility for the business as well. As a business owner, take extra precautions to make the floors less slippery, safer for walking, etc. for day-to-day activity. This will not only decrease the chance of injury but also put your mind at ease. Here are a few ways to reduce flooring safety risks:

If you are considering wood floor installation, consider rugs or non-skid mats at entrances. This way, when people come in and out of your building, the moisture or dirt from outside has a buffer at the entryway.

When cleaning the floorings (whether it’s vinyl flooring, wood flooring, etc.) consider doing it after hours. This gives it a chance to dry and it is not slippery when customers need to walk across it. If you must clean during open hours, post visible signs for customers to see so they’re aware of the wet floor.

If carpet is your floor of choice, regularly check the carpet for snags or loose pieces. Pieces of carpet that is not securely fastened to the ground can easily become a tripping hazard.

Whether you’ve had carpet in your Green Hills shop or you’re having wood floor installation done to your gallery in Downtown Franklin, the safety of your customers should be crucial. With years of experience, Ozburn-Hessey not only aids in installation services, but can also guide their customers to the right type of floor that’s safe.
