The Importance of Concrete Surface Preparation
Jan 11 , 2022

Concrete surface preparation is the first and most important step for the installation of any flooring. Without proper concrete surface preparation, many problems can arise once you install your new flooring system. If you have ever seen uneven floors, peeling floors, or bubbling floors, it could be because the floor was not prepped properly. Every surface needs to be cleaned, open and porous for proper floor installation.

What is concrete surface preparation?

Concrete surface preparation is the demolition or breaking down of existing flooring and bonding between the concrete and the flooring. Concrete surface preparation is not just for residential homes, but also commercial and industrial floors as well. Following the removal of old flooring, the concrete slab must be prepped with specific equipment for installation. This process is always done with concrete grinding machines that remove any elements left behind from old flooring system.

Concrete is a very hardy and sturdy, however, it will deteriorate if not prepped and maintained properly. Though you may not see your concrete underneath your floor, that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be prepped and maintained properly. When replacing your floors, making sure that the concrete is clean, smooth, and not full of cracks is important. If concrete is not properly prepped and maintained before laying new flooring system, many problems can arise, including: uneven surfaces, poor adherence, cracks, holes and more. If the surface prep is not done correctly, your new floor will deteriorate faster and can be a big waste of time and money.
