Identifying the Need for Dairy Flooring

Here are some key indicators that it’s time to consider upgrading to specialised flooring: 

  1. Safety Concerns: If you’ve noticed an increase in slips or falls in your dairy area, it’s a clear sign that your current flooring isn’t providing adequate grip, especially when wet.
  2. Hygiene Challenges: Dairy operations require impeccable cleanliness. If you’re struggling to maintain hygiene standards due to your current flooring’s texture or material, it’s time to upgrade.
  3. Wear and Tear: Excessive cracks, chips, or erosion in your flooring are not just eyesores; they’re breeding grounds for bacteria and can compromise the structural integrity of your space.
  4. Efficiency Issues: If cleaning your floors seems to take longer and requires more effort than it should, or if your floors are damaging your equipment, these are signs that your flooring isn’t serving your operation well.
  5. Regulatory Compliance: Non-compliance with industry standards and regulations can be a significant issue. Upgrading to dairy-specific flooring ensures you meet these requirements, avoiding potential penalties.

Recognising these signs early can save you from bigger problems down the line. PM Industries is here to help you assess your current flooring situation and offer solutions that best fit your needs.

Understanding the Cost Factors of Dairy Flooring

When it comes to the cost, several factors come into play, making it challenging to provide a one-size-fits-all price.  

Dairy flooring must be durable, easy to clean, and capable of withstanding the harsh conditions of a dairy environment. Here are the factors influencing the cost:

  1. Floor Area: Larger areas require more materials and labour, leading to higher costs.
  2. Type of Flooring Material: There are various flooring options suitable for dairies, such as epoxy, polyurethane, and concrete coatings. These materials are chosen for their durability, non-slip properties, and resistance to chemicals and acids. Different materials come with varying price points.
  3. Condition of the Existing Floor: If the existing surface requires extensive preparation, such as crack repair, levelling, or removal of old coatings, this will increase the overall expense.
  4. Hygiene and Safety Requirements: Dairy floors must meet strict hygiene standards to prevent bacterial growth and ensure easy cleaning. Floors with better hygiene properties, like seamless surfaces or antibacterial coatings, can be more expensive.
  5. Customisation and Design Features: Any custom features, such as slopes for drainage, integrated gutter systems, or specific non-slip textures, will add to the complexity and cost of the flooring.
  6. Labour Costs: The cost of labour can vary based on the contractor’s expertise and reputation. Contractors with experience in dairy flooring might charge more but typically ensure higher quality and more durable finish.
  7. Installation Time and Complexity: Some flooring solutions might require longer to install, especially if they need to accommodate specific dairy operation schedules.
  8. Durability and Longevity of Materials: Higher quality materials that offer increased durability and longevity may have a higher upfront cost but can provide better value over time due to reduced maintenance and replacement costs.
  9. Location Factors: The geographical location of the dairy in Perth and factors such as accessibility and transportation of materials can influence the overall cost.
  10. Aftercare and Maintenance: Some flooring options may require specific maintenance routines or additional treatments over time. These ongoing maintenance requirements can affect the total cost of ownership.

At PM Industries, we believe in transparent pricing and will work closely with you to understand your needs and provide a detailed, no-obligation quote tailored to your specific requirements. 

Our goal is to offer you the best value, balancing cost with the quality and longevity of your investment.

Identifying Professional Dairy Flooring Installer

Recognising a professional installer is key to ensuring you get the best value and performance for your dairy operation. Here are some essential characteristics to look for:

  1. Non-Slip Surface: Safety is paramount. Professional installer should have a non-slip texture to prevent accidents, especially in wet conditions.
  2. Chemical Resistance: Look for flooring that resists corrosion from dairy products, cleaning agents, and other chemicals commonly used in dairy operations.
  3. Durability: High-quality dairy flooring should withstand heavy traffic, equipment weight, and constant use without significant wear and tear.
  4. Hygiene-Friendly: It should be easy to clean and disinfect, with no cracks or crevices where bacteria can grow.
  5. Water Resistance: Dairy floors are frequently exposed to liquids. Professional flooring should be impermeable, preventing water from seeping into the substrate.
  6. Thermal Shock Resistance: Floors should be able to withstand sudden temperature changes without cracking, especially if you use hot water or steam for cleaning.
  7. Regulatory Compliance: Ensure the flooring meets Australian standards and regulations for dairy facilities.
  8. Professional Installation: Look for signs of expert installation, like seamless integration, proper levelling, and neat edges.
  9. Aesthetic Appeal: While functionality is key, professional dairy flooring can also enhance the appearance of your facility.
  10. Warranty and Support: Reputable providers like PM Industries offer warranties and ongoing support, indicating confidence in their product’s quality.

By keeping these factors in mind, you can confidently identify flooring solutions that meet the rigorous demands of dairy operations.
