Texas-based Armagh Creamery Chooses Yarborough Surfaces and JetRock Seamless Flooring Systems to Update Creamery Tank Room Floors.

Dairy farms are as vital today as they were in the early 1900’s when pasteurization was developed and the modern milk farm was born. Safer milk and a longer lasting product increased the demand, increasing the size of these farms. Now more efficient than ever, the harsh conditions of those early farms have been replaced with technology that provides more sanitary conditions. Efficiency has increased with robotic milking, automatic feeding systems, electronic IDs and other new applications. 

Some things that haven’t changed in many older facilities involve the structure itself. While tank room concrete floors are still prevalent, many dairy farms are migrating to JetRock Floor Systems. The team at JetRock has adapted its non-slip, eco-friendly and sanitary seamless flooring system specifically for dairy farm installations.

In partnership with Yarborough Surfaces, JetRock is helping to support flooring and technology investments at Armagh Creamery in Dublin Texas. Armagh, like 98% of dairy farms in the US is a family owned and run business. Five generations of the McDowell Family have been dairy farmers beginning in Ireland before relocating to the US. Three generations are currently running it, located fittingly enough in Dublin, Texas.

JetRock seamless flooring is safe, durable and can be installed overnight. Its accompanying cleaning solution is derived from organic materials, so it is non-toxic, non-reactive and biodegradable. It is ideal for use in dairy and creamery facilities just as it is ideal for the thousands of restaurants, hotels, hospitals and other facilities around the world that have had it installed.

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

0 Comments

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.

JetRock is a seamless, nonslip solution that deters buildup of dirt and bacteria. Cleaning is quick and simple, leaving your commercial kitchen sanitized and ready for food prep.
