Restaurant floors often use a buffet layout, with areas that match including the bar, front, dining areas, kitchen, and restrooms, with different materials used for each.

These materials could include everything from rubber to carpet, among others. They may look great when paired together, but each material will require its own method of cleaning and maintenance, which can be difficult to follow.

Here are some ways to keep your restaurant flooring cleaner and well-maintained.


Carpeting is often installed to add more traction to restaurant flooring along with noise absorption and a more upscale appearance. However, even the strongest and most durable carpeting will experience wear over time due to certain spills on the restaurant’s kitchen floor or dirt carried in from outside.

Cold Seal Packaging and Coatings

Cold seal packaging is a process used for packaging products such as food products and medical products. This kind of packaging only uses pressure to seal products without heat or with minimal heat.

Without the use of heat for packaging, this process is energy efficient. Products will also be free of problems like discoloration or deformation from heat.

This process uses natural rubber latex as its main component. Natural rubber latex is what provides the cohesive feature. This latex is combined with proprietary synthetic emulsion to give that high-performance sealing.

Some Advantages of Cold Sealing

Cold sealing provides an unyielding seal. This means that products that are sealed are less likely to be contaminated since the seal is tight. This seal is also resistant to moisture hence the product will remain as fresh as it was during packaging for a long time.

The process of cold seal packaging is a quick process. This means that more packages can be sealed by few operators.

Shared Warehousing vs. Dedicated Warehousing

The Upside of Shared Warehousing

Every business has differing needs and when you are searching for a solution to store your products and meet storage requirements, there are two types of warehouses to examine. There is the dedicated warehouse, often a perfect solution for the bigger, long-standing business and the shared warehouse.

The dedicated warehouse is a space owned or rented solely by your company. The rent is the same amount every month. You and your company are responsible for the overall operation and are in complete control over the space, including the managing of staff and overhead costs.

These costs are fixed regardless of the volume of orders.

The shared warehouse is a space where more than one company stores their products and it is managed by a third party. Many smaller companies may look toward the advantages of a multi-client warehouse because it offers cost-effective and flexible storage.


You may have reservations about sharing space with other companies in a shared warehouse, however, there are more advantages than disadvantages. Here are three of the advantages:


The costs for the warehouse space, including personnel and facility management, are shared by all the companies using the space. You pay for the space that you use; no worries of a half empty warehouse taking up resources.
Shared warehouses eliminate the need for you to hire employees to pack, store and ship your products. You are not paying full-time wages if there is only part-time work. Costs can differ between dedicated warehousing companies, too.
