This playlist includes a series of videos that cover repairing cracks in concrete floors. These videos are meant to support produce growers in making repairs to concrete floors in walk-in coolers, wash/pack areas, and packing houses. Cracks in concrete can collect water, soil, and plant matter and present harborage locations for plant and human pathogens. Repairing these cracks helps improve the hygienic design of the space and makes the floor more easily cleanable resulting in improved sanitary conditions.
