Winter storm damage comes in many shapes and sizes. This year alone, I myself have had my basement flood twice and a leak open on my roof from an overabundance of snow, sleet and rain storms. This February has been the 3rd wettest on record with over double the average precipitation for the better part of 3 decades and the highest totals in over 100 years. Only a few days into March of ‘18 and it’s already proving to be another wet month. We will soon see how it plays out for the record books. With back to back Nor’easters and forecasts that include newly pressed terms like bomb cyclones most of us are praying for dryer days ahead.

When it comes to cleaning kitchens there are certain specifications that are different than that of other industrial clients such as distribution or warehouse facilities. If a kitchen is not cleaned frequently there can be a large degree of grease and carbon buildup related to cooking oils and other byproducts of the cooking process. As you can tell from these photos thick heavy grease coats stainless steel surfaces, ovens are charred with black soot, and floors have buildup around the edges of stationary and wheeled equipment.  Whether a kitchen is cleaned nightly or sparingly this same level of buildup eventually occurs without deep cleaning.

Before and After: Epoxy Floor Cleaning

Posted by Frank Talarico

Feb 22, 2018 10:08:30 AM

Flooring is a big investment that has a large effect on the cleanliness and appearance of your environment. Epoxy coating is perfect for rugged environments because it is easily applied to concrete and other porous materials and can even be applied on walls and ceilings. Some epoxy coatings are even resistant to stains, chemicals, and thermal shocks. Epoxy flooring is often used in warehouses and distribution facilities because of its durability. Because epoxy coatings are considered almost bulletproof, the floors are often neglected through either lack of maintenance or improper cleaning specifications. In order to retain the smooth, bright appearance of this material, it is important to maintain these floors properly. While sweeping and mopping these floors can be helpful, it is important to perform regular maintenance including deep-cleaning.
