Really I think the pictures speak for themselves and tell a lot. You have already seen this photo of the poured epoxy flooring. This floor is roughly 5 years old and shows a lot of wear and issues.
One good characteristic of epoxy floors is they a more stain resistance then rubber or pvc. Here is a rubber floor that I installed about 4 years ago. As you can see the customer has a hard time keeping it clean, plus I see evidence of staining around the table from the betadine scrub solution. Now here is a pvc floor that I installed close to 7 years ago. This floor " I think " has preformed very well and was money well spent, especially since of three floorcoverings, this was the more budget friendly Yes you can see staining around the table, but if you look at the entire floor.
In my opinion it out performed the other two. Just as a note for some of you who might not understand the staining issue around the tables. The staining is basically caused by iodine. They iodine is in a prescrub solution sometimes refereed to as betadine scrub which is used to scrub the skin areas prior to surgery. This solution stains the old corlon really bad, pvc bad, not suppose to stain rubber, but does.
Does not seem to stain epoxy poured floors and interesting enough does not seem to stain lino floors very much. This I find interesting since linoleum is basically a wood and cork product. I have tested it several times and have not seen it stain, but I have not left the iodine sit for extremely long periods of time.

That is so amazing ,the invention of the gloves. Watching different medical pre gloves era in the I can see why so many patients died from sepsis and so many did not make it. How in the world nurses stayed healthy is beyond me. I am a nurse ,i could not imagine doing a procedure without gloves.
