Tek-Crete

The Tek-Crete series is the best in its class of urethane flooring systems and is protecting millions of square feet of concrete in the most abusive environments.

Tek-Crete urethane concrete flooring systems offer superior performance in the most abusive environments, like food and beverage, chemical processing, and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Unlike acid brick and quarry tile, Tek-Crete does not crack at mortar joints and provides a seamless flooring surface with resistance to chemicals, impacts, thermal shocks, and high temperatures.

Tek-Crete concrete urethane systems are virtually odor-free during installation and cure, which means they can be installed during normal working hours. For maximum chemical and impact protection, durability and cleanability, choose the most uncompromising floor in the construction industry.

Decked Out: Improvements You should Make to Your Hotel’s Pool Deck

Your guests will be flocking to your pool to keep themselves cool this summer. However, you don’t want to greet them with a cracked deck, outdated lounge chairs, and dead greenery. That’s one or two stars you won’t get back from a review. Consider making these improvements to your pool deck and give your guests the refreshingly warm welcome they deserve.

Give Your Guests Better Seats

Lounge chairs keep your guests relax before or after taking a dip. Some people use it just to get a natural tan from the sun. This is why it’s important to provide your guests with clean and comfortable seats. Don’t just settle for plastic ones, get a chaise lounge made of quality wood and steel. If you’re on a budget, you can always refurbish old ones by sanding off rust for steel chairs, sealing wooden ones with lacquer or varnish, and finishing the work off with a fresh coat of paint.

Make sure the cushions are UV protected to keep them looking great despite being under the sun for a long time. You may also want to use treatment sprays on them to keep mold and mildew from staining their fabric.

Maintain Your Nooks

You don’t want your guests to stay in a dusty and rotting cottage when they want to find refuge from the summer sun. Inspect your nooks for any structural problems or wood rot, and have them repaired immediately. You should also repaint and revarnish your cottages to make sure that their wood is sealed and protected from the sun’s heat and summer rain showers.

Modern and luxurious deck

Get Closer to Nature

If you already have an array of plants surrounding your pool, all you need to do is to hire a landscape services provider to clean it up and maintain the greenery. If you don’t have a landscape yet, however, you may want to consider putting up some plant boxes to grow palm trees and ornamental grasses like lemongrass and fescue in. These plants make your pool area look more serene and relaxing. Plus, your guests will appreciate the fresher air and natural cooling effect they provide.

Improve Your Deck

Constant exposure to the sun and water can deteriorate your pool’s concrete deck and cause it to lose its grip. This is a serious safety hazard, as over 1 million people visit the ER every year because of slip and fall injuries. It’s worth closing off the area for a few days to install waterproof deck covering to protect it from the harsh summer heat, water and chlorine from your pool, and constant foot traffic. This lets it look better and maintain its grip for longer.

Your pool is one of the most important amenities your hotel offers, especially during hot summer days. Apart from regular cleaning, you should make sure the deck is safe and comfortable for guests to use. Take all these tips into consideration and your pool might just give you the five-star review you’ve always wanted to get.

When it comes to protecting your concrete floors, ask your contractor for deck covering that provides water and fire-resistance.

Food & Beverage: Maintaining Your Commercial Kitchen

clean commercial kitchen in a restaurant

Maintaining a hygienic commercial kitchen is one of the biggest challenges of running a busy restaurant. As a business owner, manager or chef, it is important to have a system in place as well as an outline of how to keep your kitchen in top shape. When you implement a system for your staff to follow, you educate them of good practices that prevent common hazards such as slips and fires. It is important to conduct regular inspections to ensure that your kitchen is safe for your employees and customers. This way, you prevent unexpected breakdowns that can affect your kitchen’s productivity.

Schedule professional maintenance

To keep your kitchen running smoothly, conduct regular preventive maintenance. Make sure your equipment is consistently performing to save you time and money on repairs. Replace broken and worn out parts to keep them functioning for many years. Should repairs be required, you can call in a professional to troubleshoot for you.

Professionals will provide your business with all the reliable repairs and replacements required for your team to prepare a great meal for your customers. They will also assess your staff’s activities, provide safety regulations, identify immediate and potential hazards, respond to unsafe situations and look for ways to improve your current system.

Ensure sanitation

Cleanliness is the key to a successful restaurant or hotel. With regular cleaning, you ensure that the food coming out is safe for your customers to eat. There are some cleaning jobs that can be accomplished monthly, while there are others that must be done regularly.

Food preparation takes place in the kitchen, so you can expect your countertops and hard surfaces to be a breeding ground for bacteria. These should be wiped clean a couple of times a day to ensure that the food you will serve is safe for consumption. Appliances and equipment such as ovens, toasters, fryers, grills and coffee makers should be deep cleaned weekly so they stay in excellent condition. Your ceiling, floor and walls should also be wiped daily to remove grease and food particles. Wash out your exhaust vents and hoods every few months to remove grease and grime. Finally, do an extensive cleaning of your racks, shelves and cabinets every six months.

Inspect your flooring

Every day, your kitchen flooring is exposed to heavy industrial cooking equipment, extreme temperatures and spills. With overall constant use, your surface will require annual floor preservation. To maintain your flooring, ensure a slip-resistant surface that won’t surrender to the daily application of harsh cleaning agents. Waterproof epoxy floor coating will help protect your concrete floor against liquid damage, saving you expensive routine maintenance costs. This resinous finish provides a hardwearing, tough and scratch-resistant surface that performs well in areas, like walk-in freezers, which are subject to water immersion.
