Epoxy Flooring For Commercial Kitchens in Hayward, CA

There are some worries about concrete flooring that we at West Coast Epoxy hear on a regular basis. When a client is considering using a pigment stained concrete foundation in a commercial kitchen, for example, they are typically equating it to what they might encounter with a tile or vinyl floor. So here are some answers to these ordinary questions about concrete flooring in commercial kitchens that we hear in the Hayward area.

Isn’t Concrete Hard on the Feet and Legs?

Some are concerned that a concrete floor will be too rough on their joints and feet, perhaps resulting in pain while stationary for the extensive periods necessary during a restaurant shift. In fact, epoxy flooring can assist in lessening this situation. With West Coast Epoxy, you can select different degrees of thickness and rigidity for your epoxy coat to assist with tolerating shock and vibration. With the correct specifications during installation, your epoxy floor can be safer and better for your feet and joints than ordinary concrete or tile possibilities.

Kitchen Clean Up

Epoxy floors have no joints or cracks, so there’s no place for dirt, bacteria, hair, old food, or other contaminants to get stuck. There’s no grout to scrub and clean. Often, all epoxy floors need for maintenance is a cleaning with a mop. Adding coved flooring also extends the strength of epoxy coatings up the walls of your kitchen from a matter of inches to more than a foot, protecting your floors and walls from spills and dings with delivery dollies and carts.

Are Epoxy Floors Safe for Work?

It is true that shiny epoxy floors in retail stores and showrooms can be slippery when wet, but their flooring focuses on appearance, not functionality. That doesn’t hold true when you lay down epoxy coats for a kitchen floor. By adding textures or a no-slip finish to your epoxy coatings, your surface can have more grip than tiles or vinyl. In fact, many industrial kitchens in restaurants use epoxy coatings because they offer longer lasting traction with the proper topcoat.
