How To Take Better Care Of Your Dairy Brick Flooring

Dairy brick flooring is orange brick flooring that almost looks like tile because it has a sealant on it. The great thing about this type of flooring is that since it is sealed, it is really durable and makes it a great flooring option to put in a commercial space. Although this type of flooring is durable, it's not completely resilient; in fact, you may have to repair it over the years if you get a lot of foot traffic in your store or restaurant. To help your floor last longer, this article will list a few ways that you can take better care of it. 

Have It Repaired

If you get a crack in your dairy brick flooring, it's not completely uncommon, especially if you have had your floor for years and years. While you may think that a crack in the brick is merely cosmetic, it can spread to other brick tiles and weak it. As soon as you notice a crack in your floor, contact a dairy brick contractor to come take it out and replace it with a new brick tile for you. 

Another repair job that you can have done on your dairy brick flooring is the grout. Grout is what essentially holds your brick together, but it can wear down if you get a lot of foot traffic or if you have had your flooring for a long time. When you have it redone, it will make your brick tile last a lot longer. To remove this, a dairy brick contractor will typically chisel out all of the grout from in between each tile and then refill it with new grout. Not only will this make your flooring look almost like new, but it will also help your floor stay together for longer. 

Have It Professionally Cleaned

Mopping your floors before you close every night is something that everyone should do, but you should also have your flooring professionally steam cleaned as well. When you have your floors steamed, it will fight bacteria, get your grout clean, and make your tile look like new again. Plus, they may also be able to place a sealant over the top of it. 

When your floor looks broken and like it's going to fall apart, it makes your business look bad. If you have dairy brick flooring, keep these tips in mind to ensure that it lasts longer and looks better at the same time.
