If you’re the owner of a restaurant, then you understand the need to keep things running smoothly. Believe it or not, your flooring can have a huge influence on your workflow. Think of how hard it is to clean carpet, especially against liquid spills, food crumbs, and unsightly stains. While carpet might be cheap, it comes at a cost of constant upkeep less you allow it to look dirty and grimy in front of your patrons.

What if we told you a combination of polished concrete and epoxy flooring was all you needed for your restaurants? Together, the two materials are the perfect blend of form and function. Are you not quite convinced? Let’s dive a little deeper.

Polished Concrete Floors Are Stylish & Durable

While polished concrete looks good everywhere we think it works best as a front-of-us flooring choice, so polished concrete floors in your dining room and restrooms would give your restaurant a stylish, modern look.

Modern & Stylish

No one can deny the sleek look of highly polished concrete as it reflects your sophisticated lighting and serves to absorb and deaden the acoustics in your dining area, allowing everyone to hear one another. There is nothing more modern, stylish, and timeless than polished concrete.

Extremely Durable for Highly Trafficked Areas

When professionally polished, concrete has a high hardness and durability. Not many other materials look this good yet serve to be a robust flooring material that won’t chip, crack, or look dingy after some use. Most importantly, polished concrete can withstand the rigor of foot traffic, making it perfect for restaurants.

Easy Maintenance & Clean Up

Polished concrete can be wiped clean and requires little maintenance. Spills are no problem; a wet mop will do the job just fine. While untreated concrete is hard to clean and is prone to staining, polished concrete is just the opposite.

Polished but Not Slippery

You would expect a polished surface to be slippery. On the contrary, polished concrete is still somewhat porous, which means it does not become slippery no matter how much it gleams. Polished concrete adheres to ADA and OSHA slip-resistance standards.

Epoxy Floors Are Great for Behind-the-Scenes

Professionally-installed concrete floors can look great anywhere, but we think they really shine behind the scenes where you require something seamless, waterproof, and durable.

Naturally Chemical Resistant

Spills are no problem with epoxy floors; they can be wiped clean without fear of staining. Chemical resistance makes epoxy floors perfect for kitchen and preparation areas.

Won’t Scratch Easily

The back-of-house of a restaurant gets a lot of traffic. Beyond that, there can be a lot of machinery rolling around on the floor (think of mixers, carts, etc.) No matter how much wear an epoxy floor receives, it can stand up to it and remain relatively scratch free in the process.

Easy Clean-Up

Epoxy flooring is even easier to clean than polished concrete due to its seamless and water-resistant nature. A wet mop is all you need to wash away a day of cooking. Epoxy flooring is also FDA and USDA compliant, so it’s perfect for areas where food is prepared, cooked, and served.
