Preparation is the key to any successful installation
Floor preparation and concrete grinding are essential processes that need to be undertaken before concrete polishing or other floor coverings or coatings can be applied. These steps are critical to the quality of the finish that will be achieved from your new floor finishes and need to be completed by a floor finishing specialist. These steps are critical to the quality of the finish that will be achieved from concrete polishing and epoxy finishes and need to be completed by a floor finishing specialist. Floor preparation is the initial step that must be completed before the installation of new floor coverings takes place.
Concrete floors need to be professionally prepared before grinding, overlays, coatings or stains can be applied to the floor surface or any new floorcoverings can be installed. This process involves resurfacing the concrete to either look like plain concrete again or removing existing coatings, adhesives or substrate contaminants or preparing it to be upgraded to a decorative finish in made suitable for installation of new floorcoverings. All floor surfaces have to be prepared initially to floor coating installations, whether it's for industrial, residential or commercial requirements.
How floor preparation is done
Floor preparation involves giving the surface the right concrete surface profile (CSP) for the type of flooring installation or finishes required. Generally, the thicker the coating or overlay a more aggressive profile will need to be prepared. Often to achieve a CSP in a higher range the surface will need to be roughened using the techniques of scarifying or shotblasting.
