Epoxy Flooring For Commercial Kitchens in Manteca, CA


Plentiful industrial kitchens use tile on their floors. But the latest fashion in Manteca is stripping old tiles, exposing the foundation underneath, grinding it perfect, and applying epoxy coatings. However, a few people hesitate when considering epoxy coats in industrial kitchens. So, we’d like to address some common worries about epoxied floors in kitchens.

Are Concrete Floors Too Hard?

The comparison between a concrete floor and other flooring types shows very small differences when it comes to comfort in kitchens. You’re certainly not laying carpet in a kitchen! Vinyl may appear a little more forgiving, but the contrast is ultimately only slight, and longevity is an issue. Cork is one of the finest flooring materials for comfort but has significant challenges with maintenance. Epoxy coatings however can be created with a feel of give by using specific types of polyurethane and changing the height of the substance. If you use rubber matting in your kitchen anyway, the choice of flooring ideally should be decided by other factors.

Are Epoxy Floors Easy to Clean?

Epoxy flooring has no cracks or joints, so there is no place for bacteria, dirt, hair, old food, or other contaminants to get stuck. There’s no grout to scour and clean. Usually, all an epoxy flooring needs for cleaning and maintenance is a cleaning with a mop. In addition, adding coved flooring extends the resilience of epoxy coatings up the walls of your kitchen from a matter of inches to more than a foot, protecting your walls and floors from spills and scrapes with delivery dollies and carts.

Isn’t Epoxy Too Slick for Kitchens?

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