The Importance of Floor Surface Preparation

Floor Surface


Floor surface preparation is the first and most important step for the installation of any flooring. Without proper floor 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.

Keep in mind that floor surface preparation is not just for residential homes, but also commercial and industrial floors as well. So, what is surface preparation? Read below to find out!

What Is Floor Surface Preparation?

Surface preparation is the demolition or breaking down of existing flooring and bonding between the concrete and the flooring. Whether it is residential, commercial, or industrial—the floors must be properly prepped for replacement or new floors to be installed. Following the demolition and removal of old flooring, the concrete slab must be prepped—with specific equipment—for installation. This process can be done a few different ways, but it is always with highly specialized machines that remove any elements left behind from old flooring system.

At Speedy Floor Removal, our machines can remove many elements left behind including:

  • Adhesives
  • Thinset
  • Paint
  • Sealer
  • Epoxy
  • And much more!

These specifically designed machines are used to remove existing flooring quickly, safely, and effectively. This normal process also guarantees a smooth and clean surface without damaging the concrete slab underneath. Using these state-of-the-art machines also lets us avoid using harsh chemicals that can cause health concerns for humans and the surrounding environment.

Poorly Prepped Floor Surfaces: What’s the Risk?

Concrete is a very hardy and sturdy; however, it will deteriorate if not prepped and maintained properly. Some might wonder, “will anyone even see my concrete?” 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!

These side effects can be hazardous to the stability of people, equipment, and even furniture. If the surface prep is not done correctly, your new floor will deteriorate faster and can be a big waste of time and money!
