Epoxy Flooring For Commercial Kitchens in Redwood City, CA

Professional Kitchen Floors

Many commercial kitchens use tile on their surfaces. But the latest fashion in Redwood City is removing old tiles, uncovering the surface underneath, grinding it seamless, and adding epoxy coatings. Yet, some people hesitate when considering epoxy coatings in commercial kitchens. So, we’d like to respond to common questions about epoxy floors in kitchens.

Are Concrete Floors Too Harsh?

The comparison between a concrete floor and other flooring forms uncovers minimal differences regarding comfort in kitchens. Carpet is known as comfortable but you’re certainly not laying carpet in a kitchen! Vinyl may appear a little more forgiving, but the difference is ultimately only slight, and longevity is a problem. Cork is one of the ideal flooring materials for comfort but has significant issues with maintenance. Epoxy flooring, however, can be designed with a feel of give by using specific kinds of polyurethane and changing the height of the substance. If you use rubber runners in your kitchen as well, the choice of coating ought to be decided upon by other factors.

Kitchen Maintenance

A professional color stained or epoxied concrete base features a polyurethane sealer that is nearly just as strong as the sealers we use on garage flooring and business areas with heavy traffic. Carts won’t scratch it. Liquids cannot discolor it. Falling implements will not leave a pit. When it comes to strength, toughness, and ease of sanitation, coated concrete generally comes out on top.

Isn’t Epoxy Too Slippery for Kitchens?

The clearcoat on any concrete floor can be adapted to enhance 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 do not apply the same coats as we employ in locations that prioritize appearance over grip. That does not mean that your floor looks commercial or industrial or feels like it’s made with grit. The science behind epoxy sealers is far beyond that and offers us many stunning methods of eliminating slick floors that are accepted by experienced building designers.
