Commercial kitchen floors take quite a beating. Whether it is hot oil splatters, extreme temperature fluctuations, or ongoing foot and equipment traffic – they sure get a lot of continuous use. On top of that, flooring must meet industry regulations which can sometimes be quite strict. Commercial kitchen flooring has an important role in sustaining sanitation, and therefore the health and safety of employees and customers alike. Here at Jersey Floor, we know how important choosing new commercial kitchen flooring can be. There are several things you should keep in mind when considering flooring options.
We know maintaining hygiene and cleanliness is a top priority for any commercial kitchen. Tiled, grouted flooring systems have creases and seams, where many food particles and liquid can get trapped. This can create a breeding ground for mold, germs, and odors in a commercial kitchen environment. Instead, you will want a seamless traffic surface. A proper slope towards the floor drain is also important.
Spilling happens in commercial kitchens pretty frequently. Your flooring should be as slip-resistant as possible. There are many flooring types that are labeled “slip resistant”, but only a few are customizable properties geared towards slip-resistance. We can ensure that your new floor is certifiably slip resistant.
You will want to know what kind of maintenance your flooring requires upfront. How often will your floors be professionally cleaned? Will you be mopping throughout the day? These are things to consider when making your choice.
Strength and Durability
When it comes to kitchen flooring, you want something extremely durable. Something that can stand up to heavy daily use, spillage, and constant cleaning. When considering all these factors, you will not only want to apply them to your flooring choices, but also the sealant and finish.
