Restaurant floors endure heavy foot traffic daily, not to mention water, grease, and food spills that stain and eventually damage concrete floors. These hard-working floors not only need to be industrial-strength but as slip-resistant as possible for the safety of staff as well as customers.
Is polished concrete a good option for your business? Let’s take a closer look!
Concrete Flooring for Restaurants, Bars & Kitchens
Concrete is a great flooring option for restaurants, bars, and kitchens particularly due to its durability. Concrete floors can take a beating and still look great. Plus, with a correctly applied sealer, polished and stained concrete does not absorb liquids that are spilled on it, so you don’t get stains, slick spots, or odors.
Slip Resistant Flooring
Concrete is much less resistant to slipping hazards, which makes it a safe option for your staff and customers. You certainly don’t need a slip-and-fall accident in your restaurant or bar.
Easy to Maintain
Another reason concrete is perfect for kitchens is that concrete is easy to clean. Concrete requires very little maintenance. Regular cleaning should include sweeping regularly throughout the day and mopping it with non-abrasive cleaning products and water.
Satisfy the Need to Look Good
It’s not just how good the food tastes! One of the most important factors of a restaurant floor is that it must be attractive to a discriminating clientele.
The decor of a restaurant is essential to set the mood for an enjoyable dining experience, and a beautiful floor contributes heavily to the ambiance of a space.
Enjoy Floors That Can Handle the Job
Concrete floors provide the perfect solution for a restaurant floor. Not only does concrete have great strength and can handle almost anything, but it is also easy and economical to customize.
Floor polishing and floor dying can transform an ordinary gray concrete surface into something quite extraordinary to dazzle the restaurant clientele.
Concrete Floor Finishes for High-Traffic Areas
Restaurants and bars are high-traffic areas, particularly around the kitchen area. In order to maintain the beauty of your concrete floors, it’s a good idea to choose a concrete floor finish.
ACT Restoration recommends epoxy floor finishes for high-traffic areas. Not only is epoxy decorative, it can save you money, requires short installation time, and is resistant to slippage. In the food preparation and cooking areas, concrete floors should be sealed with epoxy to protect the floor from food spills, grease, and water.
What to Know About Floor Polishing for Concrete
The front of a restaurant, where food is served to customers, is the best area for polished concrete floors.
Concrete floor polishing for concrete creates a unique floor that is not only beautiful but slip-resistant as well. Floor dying or staining adds another dimension to the floor's beauty and can be color-matched to complement the rest of the decor.
As well as floor dying for a concrete floor, poured concrete tabletops, counters, or bar surfaces in the restaurant can also be dyed or stained to match, creating a very integrated look.
