Why you should say “NO!” to grout and tile.

Quarry tile and grout is the most traditional flooring for commercial kitchens. Over time tile begins to crack or becomes damaged due to wear and tear. Grout is porous and accumulates bacteria over time. According to the most recent research, there is more bacteria in a square inch of tile in a commercial kitchen than on a square inch of a toilet seat. There are nine different types of bacteria that are found in grout and tile floors that can cause illness. Small dirt particles and bacteria get lodged in the pores of the grout. Tile can lock in odors from your shoes, drinks, and food. Over time, this leaves your tile smelling with an odor that can’t be removed unless it’s done professionally.

No matter how much you clean the tile and grout it will still look dirty and worn down. The maintenance that is required for the upkeep of a tile and grout floor is expensive and time consuming. Over time, grout can break apart, leaving a crumbly mess that might also allow water to seep underneath and do some serious damage to your floor. Re-grouting is required to reseal and restore the appearance of tile and needs to be done at least every few years.

Flooring for High Traffic Areas

Durability is always a factor when choosing a flooring material, however it is even more important for high traffic areas.

Depending on the demands of your space, you should choose a material that will hold up to the toughest conditions. Do not choose a material that has multiple layers or requires re-sealing or fails once top layer has eroded; do not choose anything with seams, joints or trip hazards or a material that is hard to clean or loses aesthetic appeal over time.

Epoxy aggregate flooring systems are one of the top rated commercial flooring options for high traffic areas. The epoxy coating prevents wear and tear due to abrasions, foot traffic and chemical spills. By choosing slip-resistant, seamless, and durable material installed in a single layer such as epoxy and quartz aggregate, high traffic areas will have a lasting solution with no required maintenance.

JetRock is strong enough to serve as the flooring in commercial and manufacturing facilities, as well as sanitary enough to use in kitchens and walk-in refrigerators.
