So you have decided to have concrete as the new flooring in your home or business? That’s a great choice! It is durable, low maintenance and looks stunning. But there is a little floor preparation work that is needed to get ready for a concrete floor and at Concrete and Stone Solutions, we can help with this.
Clearing the floor
When a floor area has had other materials on it, there’s a good chance there is debris and mess left over when they are removed. Residue might be glue or fixings from carpets or flooring, insulation or even tufts of vinyl flooring.
Whatever the case, our floor preparation service starts with the removal of all of this rubbish to ensure that the floor is ready for the new concrete covering. We can remove all the debris from the old flooring to create a clean and fresh surface.
Cleaning the floor
Another big problem with floors can be stains leftover from previous use. In commercial buildings such as car parks, oil and dirt can build up on the floor. In homes, there may be stains such as spilt paint that soaked through a carpet or spilt wine. These don’t cause a problem under a flooring, but when the concrete is the flooring, they are a bigger issue.
Another part of our floor preparation service is to remove these stains or even grind out the area and refill it. This ensures the stains are gone and don’t cause issues or discolouration when the new concrete floor is created.
Floor grinding services
The other problem we commonly find with floors is that they are pitted and uneven from years of use. Even in new properties, the floors aren’t always created to be smooth and ready for use.
That’s where our floor grinding services come in. Once any old coatings are removed from the floor, we can then use the best equipment to ensure a smooth finish. We can ensure the floor is level as well so that the new surface is one that is smooth and even.
