Flooring Solutions for Commercial Kitchens and Food Service Industry
Floors play a large role within the food service industry. They are expected to perform under pressure as they support heavy equipment in the kitchen, a large amount of foot traffic, and possibly extreme changes in temperature, all while staying sanitary.
Maintaining a clean food & beverage area, while adhering to local, state and federal regulations, can be extremely difficult, and much more so for a large, industrial food processing plant floors. When protective resinous coatings are applied to the concrete, this task becomes much more feasible. These food service flooring systems create one continuous floor, in which there are no cracks or crevices where debris, mold and mildew can hide.

Epoxy Concrete Commercial Kitchen Flooring: Affordable, Safe & Easy to Clean
Polished concrete sealer is a durable, affordable option for any commercial kitchen or food service floor. It is slip-resistant and easy to clean by nature due to monolithic, static surface. Being a seamless floor coating means that no germs, dirt, or waste can penetrate through making for an allergy and smell-free environment. With the additional benefit of being easy to clean – any spills can be easily cleaned with soap & water. Furthermore, the surface has a special static grip that makes it safe and slip-resistant, ensuring a safe flooring surface for employees.
What’s the Best Flooring Option for Commercial Kitchens?? Polished Concrete Versus Polished Concrete w/Sealer
Polished concrete is a very durable and beautiful flooring system. It is perfect for retail spaces, distribution and high pedestrian traffic areas as it is easy to maintain and can be renewed if neglected. However, for spaces with open food and chemicals, like restaurants or food service plants, it is slightly inferior.
Polished concrete by nature is still porous, meaning it can accept any acidic juices, chemicals, and other broken down contaminants over time. This results in stains that are burned into the concrete (will never be able to remove the stains) and further break down the concrete. Simply go to your local Kroger grocery store and walk down the Pickle aisle – here you will see irremovable stains.
Concrete sealer is a better option in a commercial kitchen or food service environment. Any grease, acidic food topping, and cleaning chemical can simply be wiped up off the floor due to it being COATED. In other words, the surface is not-porous and requires a mild cleaner to return back to normal. No stains.
Benefits of Concrete Floor Sealer for Commercial Kitchens
Looking for a simple, clean design for your commercial kitchen? Look no further than our concrete sealer, perfect for interior flooring. Our grind and seal process allows for the natural beauty of concrete to shine in any space. From a design aspect it can be rustic or industrial or give the space a real natural feel.
On top of the aesthetics, this flooring system is easy on the budget for the benefits that provide it. It outlasts traditional flooring! Here are some reasons why our concrete sealer system is better than other traditional floors.
Grind and Seal systems are simple floor transformations consisting of grinding existing concrete to remove any coating or scratches. Following the grinding process, all the joints and repairs are filled with material. The next day, after the repair material has cured, we grind all the joints and repairs down to achieve a seamless surface. The final step is to apply two coats of urethane onto the entire concrete surface. We apply two coats of urethane to achieve maximum durability. This system typically takes 2-3 days to install.

What are concrete coatings?
Our epoxy floor coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid epoxy, concrete stain, acrylic cement, and rubber based products.
Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. Premier uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.
How Much Do Your Concrete Floor Coatings Cost?
Each project is customized to your particular concrete flooring needs. Every job we do is different, because we offer different types of coatings and finishes. We will work with you to develop a free estimate keeping your budget in mind.
How Durable Are Your Epoxy Concrete Coating Systems??
We use only industrial products on all of our epoxy floor projects. They are designed to give clients the most value and longevity over any other coating material on the market. Just to give you an idea of how strong our products are, we installed an epoxy flake floor in the garage of a Fire Station in 2008 to protect the firehouse’s garage from dirt, debris, salt, and the extreme work environment. Due to our expertise and industrial coatings, we have yet to receive a repair call. Those same products are used in all of our residential projects.
How long does a typical epoxy flooring project take to complete?
A typical residential project takes approximately 3 – 5 days to complete depending on several variables. Variables include, but are not limited to: size of job, repairs and/or preparation requirements, weather, additional design details, customer requests, etc.
What if I already have an existing concrete coating?
Unfortunately, we must grind off any existing coating and repair materials before we can install any of our concrete coatings. This ensures the integrity and longevity of our flooring systems. If you have stamped concrete that has faded, please contact us for options in reviving it.
How Long Do I Need To Stay Off My Concrete Floor Coating After It Is Installed?
If using 100% solids epoxy, your floor will be cured and walkable in about 12-18 hours. You can return to full heavy traffic after about 24 - 72 hours. Wait for at least 24 hours before moving light weight furniture on your brand new concrete coating flooring. Before moving anything heavy (car, equipment and furniture).
How do you prepare concrete for resurfacing?
We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.
We spend approximately 66% of the project prepping your floor which may either be by diamond grinding or pressure washing the concrete (depending on the location of the project) and in some cases we do both! Most contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with customers asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.
Will I Need To Reseal My Concrete Floor Coating?
If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating. We offer a professional grade cleaner that will easily remove stains or tire marks, but will also preserve the life of your concrete coating topcoat.
What If My Concrete Floor Has Cracks, Chips And Is Old?
No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.
How Do I Care For My Concrete Floor Coating?
You can clean our concrete coatings with typical sweeping, mopping or steaming.
Will Oil Stain My Concrete Floor Coating?
Epoxy floor coatings are extremely resistant to most hazards, including cleaners, gas, oil, transmission fluid, and even most industrial chemicals. Our epoxy concrete coatings system is both oil and moisture resistant.
Who Invented Polyurea Coatings?
Andy Phelan, director of business development and training at Rhino Linings Corporation, explains, “Polyurea was invented in the early 1980s when a less moisture-sensitive form of polyurethane was desired. By replacing the hydroxyl group in the urethane with an amine group, a product we now call polyurea was formed.
What Are Polyurea Concrete Coatings?
Polyurea is useful for concrete floors, as it quickly and strongly bonds to concrete while providing a smooth, virtually impermeable surface that protects the floor from impact, water damage, chemicals, heat, and sunlight.
What Types Of Environments Can Epoxy Floor Coatings Be Used?
Epoxy flooring coatings can be used in a variety of environments. The durability, slip resistant finish is fantastic for any industrial setting, storefronts, patios, or even driveways or garages.
How Are Epoxy Floor Coatings Applied?
We have perfected a six step process for applying Epoxy Floor Coatings that involves prepping the floor, prime floor with epoxy primer, fill all cracks, holes with epoxy grout, then apply epoxy paint.
Can I Apply Epoxy Floor Coatings In Cold Temperatures?
You can! Epoxy can be used at cold temperatures but must be handled and applied with techniques adapted to cold temperatures.
Do I Need To Hire A Professional To Install Epoxy Floor Coating?
Installing Epoxy Floor Coating correctly is critical to the appearance and durability of your flooring. Hiring a professional is the best way to ensure that your flooring will look amazing and last a lifetime!
