Do Your Kitchen Floors Need to be Replaced?

0 Comments

Damaged and failing equipment in the food service industry can be detrimental to a business and expensive to replace. Overtime, high traffic areas can be worn from age, lack of maintenance, water damage, or just general wear. This can apply to anything from mixers and grills to walk-in coolers and kitchen floors.

Restaurant flooring is expensive and time-consuming to fix or replace and can be a dreaded event for owners and managers alike. Knowing when to repair or replace your floor, and the easiest, most cost-effective way to do so, can help managers to tackle failure or ordinary wear and tear in the best way possible. Consider replacing your floor if you experience:

  • Broken, cracked, or floating ceramic tiles
  • Leaks
  • Mold or mildew
  • Bad smells
  • Trip hazards
  • Failed seams

Floor tiles are a common material used in commercial kitchens and are subject to wear and tear resulting in cracks and overall failure. Ceramic floor tiles can crack and break from a variety of reasons: improper sub-floor, inadequate mortar adhesive, faulty tile, and heavy objects. Ceramic tiles begin to fail if the grout around them wears down and water is able to penetrate. Once water is able to penetrate tiles in any way (most commonly from eroded grout or tile glaze), your floor will begin to smell due to bacteria-ridden, water-damaged, and mold-friendly conditions. In many restaurant kitchens, broken and cracked tiles go unaddressed for long periods of time resulting in a need for more extensive repair or even replacement.

If you have encountered issues such as cracked tiles, bad smells, mold, mildew, or bacteria from water damage, and trip hazards, you may want to consider a floor replacement. A commercial kitchen undergoes extreme wear and the material you choose should be able to withstand it.

Slips and Falls

0 Comments

Slips and Falls can happen anywhere in your business and the cost can be substantial to you as a business owner, your guests and your employees.

According to the National Floor Safety Institute, Slips and Falls are the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims and are the leading cause of occupational injury. It is estimated that 25,000 Slip and Fall incidents occur daily in the workplace and the resulting compensation and medical costs associated with those slip and fall accidents approximate $70 billion annually.

You, as a business owner, can suffer loss of productivity and revenue as well as increased insurance premiums due to a slip or fall in your establishment. Workers that are victim of a slip or fall can suffer from loss of wages and out of pocket expenses. A victim of a slip or fall can also suffer from pain and temporary or permanent disability.

Slips and Falls in the workplace are usually caused due to slick, smooth or wet surfaces or trips on a rough or uneven surface. High traffic areas in your establishment, such as the kitchen, accumulate grease, water, and dirt on the floor making accidents a high risk.

One of the best ways to prevent slips and falls is an appropriate design of the workplace. A vast majority of commercial kitchens use slippery quarry tile on their floors, which is prone to grease build-up creating a slippery surface. overtime, wear and tear can also cause an uneven surface with damaged or missing tiles and grout.

JetRock® seamless flooring is the predominant choice to answer to these potential problems. Slips and Falls can be prevented when you invest in superior materials for your work environment. Our reliable and long-lasting slip resistant flooring is made from a mixture of quartz and specially formulated epoxy resins. JetRock® is installed overnight and directly over your current floor resulting in zero downtime to your facility. Your new JetRock® flooring system will provide a seamless, long lasting product that is three times stronger than concrete and will not harbor mold or mildew.
