Dog Kennel Flooring & Kennel Cough Prevention

A dog kennel floor has unique problems that have plagued  owners for years, but our polyurea coating can cure these issues. As maintaining a healthy environment for pets is absolutely necessary, these floors need to be cleaned constantly. The primary challenge in maintaining sanitary flooring is reducing bacteria to low levels and preventing kennel cough.

This cough is an upper respiratory viral infection that is caused by direct contact with a contaminated surface. As a consequence,  floors need regular cleaning. If, however, a floor’s coating develops frayed edges or even microscratches, bacteria will be trapped no matter how frequently your floor is cleaned.

Our Solution For Creating A Healthy Environment

There are some solutions that will help you minimize infectious bacterial growth on your floors.

  1. Increased Elongation – By increasing the elongation in our polyurea, microscratches are minimized and scratched edges are straightened. When your facility is cleaned, dirt, grime, and moisture that would otherwise cause bacteria are removed. A straight edge in a scratch will not trap bacteria as will happen in a frayed scratch in floor coatings having polyurea coatings with minimal elongation or epoxies.
  2. Cove Molding – We can install cove molding along edges and apply our polyurea coating to the top edge of the molding. This serves as a basin that prevents water from getting under walls or anywhere where moisture can be trapped. Our floors are seamless.
  1. Floor Drains – We are particularly careful with our floor-grinding system, maintaining a complete inventory of the most state-of-the-art equipment to handle every situation. We have the equipment and expertise to create smooth surfaces for water runoff and floor drain areas, allowing water to flow freely.
  2. Moisture Removal – As experts in surface preparation, we grind floors smooth, removing high spots where water can pool. This process makes your new coating easy to keep clean and allows water to be removed immediately. You will not need a mop that just pushes dirty water around and takes time to dry. Instead, all you need is a push broom followed by a neoprene squeegee (and possibly a wet/vac). The neoprene squeegee not only helps clean the surface but also immediately removes 99% of moisture, and any moisture that does remain dries quickly. Labor costs and downtime are minimized.
  3. Gloss Finish Improves Lighting – The high-gloss finish will brighten lighting, and minimal scratching and the lack of trapped dirt yield excellent lighting conditions for years. When lighting eventually decreases from excessive wear, your floor can be lightly sanded and recoated for a brand-new finish. Our polyurea coating allows your dog kennel floor to cure rapidly and be quickly restored to service, with only minimal downtime.

Case Study

Rock Solid Surfacing of Colorado, provided training and consulting at this new dog kennel in North Carolina.

The applicator, one of the largest on the East Coast, needed to resurface the flooring with a fast curing, durable, antibacterial growth coating. Bacteria in kennels is the leading cause of the  cough disease.

The epoxy application company needed a fast-curing, scratch-resistant coating that would prevent the cough caused by bacterial growth . Rock Solid Surfacing’s Espartic floor coating system was the perfect solution.

Rock Solid Surfacing has locations in Edwards, Colorado, near Vail, and also in Denver.
