Commercial kitchens take even more abuse than residential kitchens. They’re usually in use for at least 12 hours a day and the chefs cook with heavy duty vessels and utensils. With the chaos of activity in a commercial kitchen, it is easy for counters to get scorched by hot pans or nicked with knives.
Although most commercial kitchens aren’t seen by the public, health inspectors might look more favorably on kitchens with countertops that don’t have burns and cuts throughout the surface. In kitchens that are open or viewable to the public, making a positive appearance becomes even more important.
One way to keep the counters looking brand new is by refinishing the surface. Refinish First can refinish many countertop surfaces including laminate, Formica, tile, solid surfaces, and cultured marble. The chemical bond Refinish First creates on the countertop can extend the life of the surface for 15 years or more.
For commercial kitchens in need of an update, refinishing makes sense. It takes less time and costs less than renovating. The surfaces will be brand new and any damage that happens to them can be fixed by Refinish First.
