If your kitchen floor is looking worse for wear, consider replacing the topcoat with a more suitable alternative. These days, many are ditching tiles and vinyl in favor of Polyurea, so you might want to give it a look. The following are just some of the major benefits of polyurea/polyaspartic commercial kitchen floor coating services:
Slip Resistance When Wet
Kitchen floors are prone to moisture because of the nature of the activities conducted inside the space. Water will splash around from the sink and the prep table. Wet shoes will leave their marks on the floor. If the surface is slippery, then the staff will have a hard time moving about. They might even mess up the food and break the dishes. It lowers productivity while increasing costs. Polyurea can be mixed with quartz or other anti-slip aggregates to improve performance when wet.
Helps Minimize Liability Risk
Slippage is not just an inconvenience. It is downright dangerous. When people slip and fall, they can potentially really hurt themselves. If this happens a lot, the staff will have low morale and may wish to leave because of the high-risk conditions. The sudden loss of staff due to injuries will also lead to a drop in productivity. Business owners are likely to be liable for the medical costs as well if found to be negligent. Avoid all these by getting a non-slip floor coat.
Ease of Maintenance
Polyurea can save time and money with its ease of maintenance. It is easy to clean using a mop or a broom. The only things that are required would be soap and water to lift away the dirt. Harsh chemicals are irrelevant when you keep it sanitary. The end-of-day rituals can speed up such that the staff can all go home early.
No Volatile Organic Chemicals
VOCs are controversial substances in the world of construction. Many common building supplies and finishes have been found to contain these chemicals that compromise the building’s occupants’ health. For example, laminates and vinyl often contain formaldehyde. Vinyl tiles are also known to have phthalates, which are endocrine disruptors. Polyurea flooring does not have any of these VOCs, so you won’t have to worry.
Long-lasting Floor Solution
You can be certain that polyurea/polyaspartic floors will last a long time, even in challenging settings like commercial kitchens. They have an unbelievable resilience level when faced with high heat, persistent moisture, and harsh chemicals. Other flooring solutions such as epoxy will need to be reapplied every few years to make up for the wear and tear. Polyurea won’t make you go through all that trouble.
If you are troubled with your existing commercial kitchen floor, then change it. Polyurea floor coatings may be what you want and need.
