Commercial Kitchen Tile Repair

Specializing in commercial kitchens

Kitchen floors are under constant attack by varying temperatures, boiling grease, bacteria, harsh chemicals, acidic cleaning techniques, and the abundance of water.

Deteriorating grout

Common Problems

Low/Deteriorating Grout

Thick build-up of grease often hides the fact that grout is significantly missing in areas of the kitchen floor.

Instead of grout, grease may be filling these voids.

Patching these problem areas with sanded grout is a temporary solution. Sanded grout adheres poorly to areas with any remaining grease or dampness and will likely need to be repaired in a few months.

Cracked/Loose Tiles

Cracked tiles are a common occurrence with the necessary movement of heavy commercial equipment.

Loose tiles occur when deteriorated grout allows grease to seep in between the tiles. A layer of grease and food debris develops beneath the tile, eventually loosening it from the mortar
