Importance of Choosing the Right Assisted Living Flooring

Assisted living facilities are a critical part of healthcare. They provide around the clock care for those who need it and can bring peace of mind to families knowing their loved ones are in good hands. Finding a quality assisted living flooring that offers the benefits of traditional healthcare products while also feeling “homey” can be a difficult task. Our Rikett Quartz Tile (RQT) achieves this balance with a variety of style choices and quality materials.

Cleanliness

Although assisted living environments are home to many, they are primarily medical facilities. This means they must be able to handle and adequately sanitize any biohazards. Our tiles are made of quartz, a nonporous material that’s perfect for keeping clean. The low absorption rate prevents staining and resists shrinkage. This hinders bacteria growth, which is critical in medical environments.

Consistency

Since our assisted living flooring tiles are made of heavy duty quartz, you don’t have to worry about damage or warping that renders it dangerous. Your floor will be smooth and safe at all times. RQT also meets all smoke and fire ratings and meets ADA slip regulations. Preventing slips and falls is especially critical in assisted living facilities.

Comfort

As we said above, assisted living facilities are primarily medical buildings. That being said, they are also home to many patients. Using a flooring design that is comforting and aesthetically pleasing can make a difference in a patient’s moods and attitudes. At Rikett, we understand this and offer our quartz tiles in a variety of designs, so you can feel good about choosing one your patients will love.

Choosing assisted living flooring may seem like a daunting task, but we believe our products will check all your boxes. Quartz tiles are easy to clean, smooth and meet all ADA and fire safety standards. For more information, visit our website here.
