Floor Restoration, Cincinnati, OH
We had the privilege of providing floor restoration services for a Cincinnati manufacturing facility.
The floor was 20+ years old and was showing signs of severe ware and degradation. The process for moving product around the facility was the primary reason for the issues with the floor. When manufacturing parts come in, they are placed in a steel rack holding unit. The racks are then pushed and pulled across the floor with fork lifts causing damage mainly to slab edges and joints of the floor.
The restoration solution consisted of restoring the slab surface by sawing, chipping, and patching the floor with 9,000 PSI Mortar. Followed by saw cutting the patches to re-establish floor joints, then filling the joints with Polyuria. Finally, drilling holes in the slabs every 3 feet staggered along the joints and pumping Urethane Foam Grout under the curled joints to stabilize any sub-surface voids.
