Course Description: There has been a dramatic increase in the installation of resilient flooring because of the beautiful design options, durability, and ease of maintenance. However, resilient products have unique properties that affect an installation. They can also affect health and wellness in unexpected ways. For example, without an underlayment and/or other sound dampening materials, noise can be a major problem for concentration at work, learning in education, and recovery in healthcare facilities. Falls are a key consideration in the workplace and healthcare. There are ways to compensate for the hard surface. Finally, many people (and experts) think that hard surface is better for asthma than carpet. Not so according to research. Learn how to specify the correct product, help customers avoid problems, ensure a safe and healthy environment, and extend the life of the product.
