Understanding Surface Preparation
Each type of flooring requires the important phase of surface preparation. This is an integral part of the flooring process because it essentially sets the floor up for the work ahead.
Why Floor Prep?
- Allows Bondage
A proper floor preparation will act as a precursor for floor coating bondage.
- Ensures Flatness
At Sealwell, we make sure to the surface is flat because the base floor determines the level of quality that the top layer of flooring will have. Determining the flatness of this base floor during floor preparation can be done with a string line or straight edge tool.
An important reason for floor preparation is that it allows a time for the floor to be made free of bumps and uneven areas. If the floor is not prepped prior to adding top layers of coatings, then the rough surface can cause issues later on. Flooring requires each piece to be as flat as possible for an ideal, smooth finished floor. It is the process of smoothing during surface preparation that sets the floor up to be ready for a simpler transformation with the additional flat layering.
The last result that anyone wants for their flooring is for it to be defective. This is a risk without a proper floor prep procedure. At Sealwell, we make sure to follow each step to create a safe and consistent flooring.
