FOOD PRODUCTION FACILITY FLOOR COATINGS
Food and beverage processing facilities have certain specific requirements regarding flooring. Factors such as extreme temperatures, wet settings, and high-pressure washing can cause damage to floor surfaces if they’re not sufficiently protected. This makes it necessary to maintain floors using a combination of reliable floor coatings and maintenance services that keep the floor in good condition for many years.
Substances such as hot oils, animal fats and blood, sugar, and acids can eventually cause significant damage to floors. Specific sectors within the food and beverage industry will also come with different requirements to maintain a safe and functional work environment.
