Sealing Concrete Floors to Prevent Bacteria Growth and Water Seepage

When it comes to sealing concrete floors to protect from water seepage, the best way to stop water and to prevent bacteria growth is to apply a cove at the floor/wall joint.  Food Manufacturer’s must arm themselves with this approach if they want to keep their food production floor clean and bacteria-free.

Food manufacturing facilities are held to strict compliance to food safety standards for clean flooring set forth by the FDA and in wet environments by OSHA.

Brand Aromatics took a proactive approach to sealing concrete floors in their production rooms with a cementitious urethane floor resurfacer and cove.  They created a “bathtub” effect to seal the floor so that during daily hot wash-downs water does not penetrate the floor/wall joint. The seamless floor coating helps prevent bacteria from hiding and growing as it doesn’t have a seam to latch on to.

The Problem – Old facility floor had to be entirely gutted then prepped.
The Complexity: Had to account for many floor drains and make sure that there was a proper pitch for slope to drain.
The Solution: Application of cover mortar to seal the floor/wall joint in the continuously wet processing room.
The Result: A seamless, leak-proof floor resurfacer and cove that is anti-slip and easy to clean.
