Is Your Concrete Floor Coating Ready for the Inspector?
If you own or operate a food or beverage plant, you know that sooner or later, the government inspector is coming. And when the inspector comes, he or she will be looking at your concrete floors.
Concrete floors in food processing plants are susceptible to bacteria growth so they require constant cleaning. The frequent high pressure, high temperature wash downs can cause the floors to fail.
So, it’s a good idea to get ahead of any problems by inspecting your floors yourself before the government inspector comes.
Here’s What to Look For
Your floor needs to be:
- easily cleanable
- free of cracks and joints
- level and free of ponding water
- free of harborage areas
- sealed from floor to wall joints
Additionally, it is recommended that the floor have a cove base at the wall junction.
