What’s happening in this video… This premier bakery facility has been in operation for many years with a bare concrete floor which was badly pitted and corroded from years of exposure to high heat and hot water wash downs.
The concrete floor surface was also slick in many areas. The bakery facility owners required a resurfacer to repair and protect the damaged concrete floor in their production and oven rooms but didn’t know the types of flooring to accomplish this requirement.
The facility owners relied on the industrial flooring manufacturer [Garon Products Inc.] to guide them and specify the right floor coating to meet their requirements – bacteria fighting floors and antimicrobial floor coatings were under consideration in order to comply with FDA and OSHA standards.
