Has anyone had to deal with pockmarked concrete in their facility, such as the attached picture? The holes do not go more than 1/3 inch into the wall, and were caused by improperly settled concrete that was just painted over.
I totally agree that this does not meet the requirement for 11.2.3, but I'm looking for suggestions on how to fix for our facility correctly. So far, we've come up with several maintenance fixes:
1. Caulk each individual divot
- Would fill each hole, but look pretty bad. Caulk may crack or crumble out, and wall would potentially still not be smooth (but would at least be mounded, instead of divots?)
2. Plaster over the portions of wall
- If (and when) a hi-lo hits the wall patches, they will crumble and be a bigger food safety risk.
3. Cover all affected areas with sheet metal
- Seems to meet requirement the best, but will be most costly and time consuming, and may provide challenges to cleaning in a couple areas of the building, but we haven't totally flushed this idea out yet.
Would option 1 of caulking each individual hole still meet the requirements for smooth surfaces?
Is anyone familiar with adding additional cleaning detail or tasks to their MSS list to account for structural issues like this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
