All the floor preparation services you need in one place.
Before installing a new surface, it is important that the floor is properly prepared. Proper floor preparation can help prevent long term problems with your surfaces, so it is worth using this service and help you get the most from your floor.
Long term issues
If a floor is not properly prepared, a lot of problems can occur. These may not be immediately obvious, but they can happen over a period of time. This can include the floor becoming uneven, the surface starting to peel or bubbles appearing.
The process of preparing the surface often involves the removal of the current flooring or the bonding that sticks to the concrete or wood below. Once these elements have been cleared, the subfloor itself sometimes needs to be properly prepared so that materials can be placed on top of it.
This can vary according to some different factors, such as the type of subfloor and its current condition, the exposure and what kind of coating system will be used on the surface.
Among other things, this can include the very basics such as clearing away adhesives, paint or sealants to slightly more involved processes such as leveling or smoothing a floor by preparing it with the appropriate screed or ply/hardboard. A professional will be able to do this quickly, safely and effectively. If done correctly, the surface will be smooth and clean without any further damage done to the subfloor underneath.
What’s going on below
While it is true that you can’t see how your subfloor is being affected, it is something that can have potentially massive negative consequences if not properly looked after.
Cracks or holes can affect the stability of the surface, something that could affect any equipment, furniture or people on top of it, so this can also be a safety issue. Furthermore, any new surface that is laid out will deteriorate much faster, resulting in you having to replace it more often and meaning more costs in the long term. In short, it pays to make sure that your floor is properly prepared.
