Epoxy Flooring For Commercial Kitchens in Clayton, CA

There are some concerns about concrete floors that we at West Coast Epoxy respond to on a constant basis. When a customer is considering using a color stained concrete foundation in a professional kitchen, for example, they are generally equating it to what they might encounter with a vinyl or tile floor. So here are some responses to these ordinary questions about concrete floors in professional kitchens that we hear in the Clayton area.

Are Concrete Floors Too Hard?

The comparison between a concrete floor and other flooring types reveals very small differences when it comes to comfort in kitchens. You are certainly not laying carpet in a kitchen! Vinyl may appear a little less demanding, but the contrast is ultimately minimal, and toughness is a challenge. Cork is one of the finest flooring materials for comfort but has considerable problems with sanitation. Epoxy coatings can be designed with a sense of give by using specific types of polyurethane and varying the depth of the product. If you use rubber mats in your kitchen anyway, the choice of flooring ideally should be decided by other factors.

Is Coated Concrete Easy to Clean?

Epoxy floors are seamless, so no food or bacteria can get trapped between seams, cracks, or grout lines. Microorganisms have next to nothing to latch onto. Restaurant kitchen employees love the ability to easily wash the floors by hosing them down with water, then using a squeegee to send the water down the drain. By adding the option of coved flooring, the base of your walls is simultaneously protected from spills and nicks. A quick cleaning with some water is all that is necessary to resolve spills and preserve cleanliness.

Are Epoxy Floors Okay for Work?

The coating on any concrete surface can be adapted to enhance the traction. Certainly, a high gloss concrete surface like you see in an office building or retail store may be slippery and treacherous when wet, but in kitchens we don’t install the same coatings as we use in areas that prioritize aesthetics over anti-slip. That doesn’t mean that your floor looks commercial or feels like it’s produced with grit. The science behind epoxy sealants is far beyond that and provides us many beautiful methods of escaping slick flooring that are approved by expert building designers.
