Epoxy Flooring For Commercial Kitchens in Martinez, CA

Many eateries in Martinez have a concrete surface for their kitchen floors. Some proprietors have decided to remodel their kitchens by tearing out their vinyl tiles or flooring to expose the concrete and install epoxy coats instead. Some restaurants currently being built or renovated use epoxy flooring for their kitchens as the first upgrade. So, here is a list of common questions about epoxy coatings in the kitchen in addition to their answers.

Are Concrete Floors Too Rough?

Many are worried that a concrete floor will be too harsh on their feet and joints, perhaps causing distress while stationary for the long periods required during a restaurant shift. In fact, epoxy floors can help to reduce this circumstance. With West Coast Epoxy, you can choose different degrees of thickness and firmness for your epoxy coats to assist with shock and vibration. With the right specifications during application, your epoxy floor can be safer and better for your feet and joints than standard concrete or tile choices.

Are Epoxy Floors Easy to Sanitize?

Epoxy floors have no joints or cracks, so there is no place for old food, bacteria, dirt, hair, or other contaminants to get trapped. There’s no grout to clean and scrub. Ordinarily, all epoxy floors need for cleaning and maintenance is a good mopping. In addition, adding coved flooring to your design lengthens 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.

Is Coated Concrete Too Slick?

The clearcoat on any concrete surface can be modified to boost the traction. Certainly, a high gloss concrete floor like you see in an office building or retail store may be slippery and unsafe when wet, but in kitchens we don’t install the same topcoats as we use in areas that prioritize looks over traction. That does not mean that your floor looks industrial or feels like it is made with grit. The science behind epoxy sealants is far beyond that and provides us with many attractive methods of preventing slippery floors that are approved by experienced building designers.
