It’s easy for bathroom floors to become slick. There’s always the chance of spilled water. Plumbing issues can lead to slow leaks that soon become large puddles. And regular cleaning and mopping can leave floors damp.
This is a reality for home and business owners alike, and everyone who owns or operates a bathroom has to worry about wet floors and the safety risks they can pose. How can you keep a bathroom floor dry when needed? Options range from air drying to more accelerated drying options.
How to Keep Your Home Bathroom Floor Dry
At home, a bathroom floor can get wet after kids splash around in the tub, the shower liner comes out of place, when toilets leak or overflow, and much more. You want to dry these wet floors as quickly as possible to minimize both safety and inconvenience. The last thing you want is for a guest or child to slip and fall in your bathroom, and you don’t want wet feet or socks.
There’s also the risk of mold or mildew forming over time if standing water or dampness is left unaddressed. For these reasons and more, you need a dependable floor drying solution for your home.
You can always rely on bathroom ventilation. Ventilation removes moisture from the air, but it doesn’t deliver direct airflow onto the affected portion of the floor. A box fan or other large axial fan can help this issue, but these options deliver a lot of volume without much concentration. They are also bulky, which can be tough to maneuver, especially in a smaller residential bathroom.
An alternative to a bulky, inefficient box fan is a compact centrifugal air mover, which helps overcome some of the drawbacks of its more cumbersome cousin. It offers direct airflow, and it runs quietly — which means little noise and distractions as you go about your day. These types of fans take up less space than an axial or box fan, as many centrifugal air movers are small and stack easily in tight spaces.
How to Keep Your Business Bathroom Floor Dry
Much of the same hold true of business bathrooms. They often get wet because of spills, leaks and regular cleaning. You have many of the same options when looking for the best method of drying a bathroom floor. The main difference between wet home floors and wet business floors is that they latter exposes a company to greater liability given the number of customers or workers going in and out of a bathroom.
You can opt for air drying when wondering how to dry a bathroom floor at your business. But that often means closing a bathroom for an extended period of time, or putting up a wet floor sign. There is no equipment needed, but air drying leads to the greatest disruption to your business.
You can also choose a ceiling fan or a box fan for drying a bathroom floor at your business; however, most commercial bathrooms do not have ceiling fans, and box or other axial fans are noisy and deliver air volume without much concentration. Your best option for a bathroom floor fan is going to be a compact air mover like the B-Air® VP-25.
