Restaurant flooring and ceilings are a class of their own. They must abide by rigid guidelines set forth by the USDA and be able to withstand heavy foot traffic, spilled food and drinks, scraping chairs, and all the hustle and bustle of a busy restaurant. Different areas in a restaurant have different needs and will require different flooring and ceilings, with food safety being the top priority in the food prep areas.
USDA ceilings in Lafayette, LA are available at Architectural Acoustics and can be used in a variety of high humidity settings, as well as food prep areas in restaurants. They are washable and impact and scratch resistant, which allows them to be thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis to keep your restaurant kitchen as clean as possible. With splashes, spills, and grease in restaurant kitchens, being able to wash the ceiling and walls of your kitchen is important
Quarry tile flooring is great for food prep areas as it can be easily cleaned in case of spills, which in restaurants are frequent. At the end of the evening, they can be hosed off to make sure all the spills and drops are washed down the drain.
In the dining room, a floor that is extremely durable is a must. Foot traffic from customers, servers, chair scrapings, and dropped food and spills; the floor must be able to withstand it all. Some restaurants choose a durable carpet, as it is anti-slip and also more comfortable to walk on for servers and guests. Other floors to consider are the wood-look vinyl or laminate floors if you want the warmth and character of wood flooring but need the durability of vinyl and laminate.
