Businesses in the food production industry undoubtedly know already that the nature of this sector means that the environment is consistently exposed to a huge array of corrosive contaminants and by-products, such as blood, hot oil, fat, food acids and lots more.
Over time, warehouses and factories can soon be seriously affected by the levels of contamination, which is why it’s so vital that you make proper investments where your food production flooring is concerned. 

You can’t simply leave the concrete exposed because, with the spills and waste landing on it every day, it would soon be too contaminated to work on. Moreover, other flooring options such as tiles do not offer a seamless and impervious finish, and have the potential to create a breeding ground for bacteria.

What you need for your flooring is something durable, hard-wearing, slip-resistant and which is incredibly easy to clean at the end of a hard working day. No one wants to spend hours cleaning the floor after they’ve been hard at it all day, which is why resin flooring is really the only option for those working in the food industry.

When shopping for your new floor, remember that you need to have something with a finish that makes it easy to clean so that any and all contaminants can be removed quickly. Floors will have to be cleaned throughout the day, so having something that doesn’t cause problems in this regard is an absolute must. You should also make sure that you have stainless steel drainage incorporated so as to facilitate an easy clean as well.

Resin floors are perfect for this and you’ll be able to take advantage of a clean high-performance finish within your environment. What’s more, because you’re likely to be cleaning the floor constantly throughout the day, you need to make sure that you have something that is slip-resistant and the good thing about resin flooring is that you can ask to have it textured so that your members of staff have better grip on the floor.

While these are the most important aspects to consider when choosing flooring for food production environments, it’s certainly worth reminding you as well that resin floors are very aesthetically pleasing, so you’ll be able to impress clients and guests as soon as they set foot in your warehouse or factory. 

The food production industry is a fast-paced, high-pressure environment with strict timescales and often constant production meaning that minimum downtime is a huge consideration when undertaking any works.
