Aesthetics are another consideration. this podcast, Dave and Rick describe scenarios that occur when people base flooring decisions solely on the cost of the material.

Episode 20: Pitfalls of ESD Flooring Selection: How to Avoid Flooring Failure (Part 1)

Flooring being peeled back to show how moisture has badly affected the adhesivePairing the wrong ESD floor/application can lead to flooring failure. We explain factors to consider, why each is important, and how to avoid mistakes.

Three fundamental mistakes account for a majority of ESD flooring failures: selecting the wrong floor for the application: failure to consider total cost of ownership; failing to test the floor after it’s been installed. Avoiding these mistakes helps ensure success. This first of a two-part series on avoiding ESD flooring failures explains why it’s important to select a floor based on the specific application and details the primary considerations that should be taken into account: assessing the type of footwear people will wear in the space and considering goals and objectives, including how the space will be used.
