Slips and falls are leading causes of injury in hotels and resorts today. The majority of these incidents occur in the bathroom as a result of slippery or grimy surfaces. Over time, the anti-slip treads manufactured into the bottom of hotel bathtubs or showers will become ineffective. The etch pattern becomes stained with foot dirt, body oils, cleaning chemicals and disinfectants that polymerize onto the safety pattern causing an unsightly grey stain, and ineffective anti-slip.
Safe Step’s Anti-Slip Treatment is fast and effective. The process can be completed in occupied guestrooms without displacing guests or interfering with staff. Without the need to schedule around our services, hotels are able to maximize revenue while improving their guests’ safety. Here’s how it works:
Safe Step’s technicians are trained to perform anti-slip treatments meticulously and efficiently without displacing hotel guests or disrupting bookings. We coordinate with housekeeping to complete our services while the room isn’t occupied. Best yet, the Safe Slip Paint Free Anti-Slip treatment is completely odor free meaning that rooms are ready to use immediately after being serviced.
Countless public tiled areas and pool decks in hotels are exposed to wet conditions from time to time. Safe Step’s Anti-Slip Treatment is engineered to increase the coefficient of friction on surfaces both in and outside of the bathroom. Safe Step technicians have performed anti-slip treatments on hotel pool decks, tile flooring, outdoor stone floors and staircases, and much more! Tile or stone surfaces that become slippery from time to time can also be addressed using Safe Step’s Anti-Slip Treatment.
Our founder Mark Wallskog pioneered the Safe Step Anti-Slip Treatment after his four-year-old daughter slipped and fell on a hotel pool deck. Fortunately, she was not seriously injured but the incident inspired Mark to find a solution for this hazardous issue facing hotels and resorts.
After a year of trial and error, Mark developed an innovative process that dramatically increased the static coefficient of friction (anti-slip) on pool decks, tile floors, bathtubs, and shower basins. Wallskog called his system the Safe Step Paint Free Anti-Slip Treatment and it quickly became the alternative to more expensive, time-consuming traditional hotel bathroom refinishing services.
Nearly two decades later, Mark’s innovative process has been performed in thousands of hotel around the country and continues to improve the safety of countless hotel guests every day.
