Commercial Kitchen Flooring

Durability Of A Concrete Slab and Its Resurfacing

Regarding commercial kitchen flooring, cleanliness and hygiene are the most crucial aspects. The non-porous epoxy flooring is ideal for this purpose. It is not only resistant to stains but also prevents juices and liquids from foods or drinks from getting absorbed into the floor. Additionally, a commercial kitchen needs to have a solid and clean substrate as its foundation. Therefore, it is essential to do concrete resurfacing before applying an epoxy coating. This helps patch any crevices, cracks, or holes and gives an excellent finish to your floor.
Moreover, a proper concrete surface profile is necessary for applying urethane cement flooring. This improves the bonding strength of urethane cement. Loose dust and debris can act as bond inhibitors, removing them before installing the flooring.

The Installation Of Commercial Kitchen Floor

Commercial kitchen flooring should always include an integrated radius cove base to eliminate corners that harbor bacteria and allow easier cleaning. A typical cove is four inches in height and has a one-inch radius. It needs to merge into the substrate so the finished floor will tie in without seams or joints.
In the next step, urethane cement slurry is applied with a notched squeegee. The thickness is rechecked and calculated to achieve the best results. However, urethane cement has a short working time. The whole process of mixing and application should be carried out efficiently to ensure an even and glossy finish.
