Warning. flooring solutions for food and beverage industryCommercial flooring in food and beverage prep areas, storage facilities, and dining spaces are subject to extreme wear and tear. All vulnerabilities should be addressed prior to contracting for renovation, repair, and new solution installs or risk compliance violations and potential health hazards to occupants and employees.

3 Signs You Shouldn’t Ignore

  1. Cracked or Chipped Floors – You may have a very serious problem to contend with other than just compromised durability. A lack of thermal resistance can lead to cracking and the distortion of a seamless system which can lead to contamination. Gaps and fissures could result in bacteria and mold.
  2. Buckled / Uneven Floors – Dangerous terrain for foot traffic and mobile workspaces can destroy valuable equipment and create unavoidable tripping and falling hazards on a regular basis.
  3. Stains & Discoloration – Not just an unsightly problem, it can be the result of toxicities in the environment that can be dangerous for workers and diners. Chemicals and food byproducts that permeate a commercial flooring system may leave stains that are warning signs that daily sanitization may not be enough to maintain the floors.

We take the time to customize each solution to install a product that lasts longer and keeps you in full compliance.
