Slip and fall injuries are among the leading causes of accidents at home, especially if the household has children or seniors. Good thing there are now service providers of concrete resurfacing in Cape Coral, Florida and other states that will install slip-proof flooring materials. Aside from installing slip-proof materials for the floor, these are also effective ways to minimize slip and fall injuries in your home or local community:

Impose maintenance and cleaning procedures
Besides installing high-quality pool deck surfacing in Florida, be sure to have your walkways, driveways, and concrete yards cleaned regularly. It’s usually the stagnant water in floor cracks that cause the area to become slippery.

Improve traction and repair damaged floors
Cracks on the floor can trap the water and make the area slippery. Call an expert in concrete coatings in Florida to have the floor cracks fixed. Doing this will improve the traction and make the surface slip-proof.

Check the floor and walkways regularly
It’s not enough to opt for a rubberized surfacing in Florida. It also makes sense to check the driveways and walkways regularly for any cracks and uneven surface. Uneven walkways can cause children and the elderly to trip or fall. With regular floor audit, you’ll know what parts of the area need resurfacing and improvement.

Slip and fall injuries can really cause a lot of money. But the good news is the fact that this type of injury is preventable. You just have to partner with flooring experts, maintenance personnel, and Superior Surfacing LLC to carry out the prevention strategies mentioned above. These initiatives will help you avoid uneven cracks that can lead to fall injuries.

Concrete pavers are made from cement and is poured into forms, compressed, and air cured. Concrete can be formed into all sorts of shapes and sizes and pigmented in a wide range of colors.

Advantages of Concrete Pavers:
  • Less Expensive: Concrete pavers are less expensive than brick, due to the lower cost of raw materials.
  • More Choice: Concrete offers far more design and color options than brick. If you can imagine it, you can make it happen with concrete pavers.
  • Innovation: New and better concrete pavers are being designed all the time, so you might even find choices that correct the known downsides of concrete.
  • Easier to Install: Concrete pavers are precisely uniform and easier to cut, so they’re a popular choice for DIY projects.
Disadvantages of Concrete Pavers:
  • Color Can Fade: Since they’re dyed with color pigments rather than natural clay, concrete pavers can fade over time, especially in sunny areas.
  • May Need Sealing: Optional sealants can help prolong the color in concrete pavers but add to maintenance.
  • Surface Erosion: While brick tends to wear by chipping or cracking, concrete wears more gradually, eroding away the smooth finish and exposing more of the aggregate underneath. Over time, the surface of concrete pavers might look worn while brick stays retain their surface.
  • Varying Quality: Concrete varies widely in strength and durability depending on the manufacturer’s recipe, and sometimes it’s hard to know what kind of quality you’re getting. I’ve seen gorgeous concrete pavers that looked like natural stone, and I’ve also worked with cheap ones that crumbled and cracked before I even got started.
  • Shorter Life Span: While initially holding up better to traffic than brick, concrete pavers have a shorter lifespan (a couple of decades vs. generations).
