Flooring Preperation

The initial and critical stage in applying treatment for concrete floors is to prepare the floor surface. If the floor is not ready, problems can occur when installing a new floor system. Improper floor preparation usually results in irregular surfaces, peeling, and cracked flooring. Before floor treatment and installation, every concrete slab must be free of contaminants, accessible, and permeable.

FLOOR SURFACE TREATMENT

Surface treatment includes the removal of the previous flooring and establishing a bond between the cement and the liquid. Commercial construction floors must be thoroughly prepared before new flooring can be placed. The fresh concrete is built with specialized tools for fitting once the old flooring is removed. The step is crucial to the long-term durability of your industrial flooring.

CONCERNS WITH INCORRECTLY PREPARED FLOOR SURFACES

Cement is a solid and long-lasting material. It can, however, degrade and suffer serious harm if not prepared correctly and managed. The problems that occur with commercial hard flooring are not visible to the human eye. If you do not prepare your floor, it will ruin any polish or coat you apply to the concrete slab.

METHODS TO PREPARE COMMERCIAL FLOORS

There are various methods for adequately preparing business floors for treatment and coatings. The method you use will be determined by the age of the floor and the state of the cement block prior to preparation. The following are some of the ways for preparing the concrete surface.

  • Feather Finishing
  • Floor Patching
  • Self Levelling
  • Shot Blasting
  • Grinding¬†

NECESSITY OF SURFACE PREPARATION 

Before coating and polishing in commercial or industrial properties, you need to prepare your surface. Preparation of the surface is crucial since an adhesive or acrylic finish applied to an unprepared floor will peel, bubble, and deteriorate. Surface quality extends the life of your floor treatment by ensuring that any layer or finish applied adheres well to the concrete base.
