Experienced Professionals in Floor Preparation

floor preparation

Are your floor coatings uneven, peeling, or bubbling? The average Australian takes 4,000+ steps a day, which is plenty of pressure on your floors over time. Throw in vehicle traffic, impact damage, and everyday wear and tear and it’s no wonder your concrete surfaces can look tired and old.

At Absolutely Flawless Floorz, we help you get more out of your concrete surfaces with skilled and professional floor preparation that leaves your surfaces ready for epoxy coating, a decorative concrete finish, or flake flooring solution.

While the finished epoxy or stunning decorative concrete finish is the icing on the cake, it’s the surface preparation that is the most important part of any new floor installation. It’s no exaggeration to say the life of your flooring will be dependent on the quality of the preparation. As the longevity of your floor covering comes down to the preparation of the substrate, we pride ourselves on getting the job done right the first time, every time.

Proper surface preparation can save time as well as substantially minimise the possibility of coating failure & expensive re-works, so trust your Melbourne home or business to the best and call Flawless Floorz on 0450 550 649 today.

What does this type of service involve?

This is the process of preparing your existing surface in preparation for a protective coating (like acrylic or epoxy) or for further flooring.

This is an often overlooked but important process because it sustains and ensures the smooth applicability of any coating on new flooring. Without proper preparation, your coating may not last very long and the new flooring may be subject to constant chipping and bacterial accumulation.

In the long run, this can lead to damage that needs costly repairs and even poses a danger to your property.

What is the preparation process?

How would you feel about a floor coating that keeps your concrete protected against impact damage, maintaining its aesthetic beauty, and with decades of heavy-duty use ahead of you?

This is all possible with a range of concrete sealing and epoxy flooring solutions.

But while the end product is a robust and durable surface coating, you can’t enjoy these benefits without proper preparation, so following the right step-by-step process is crucial.

The following floor preparation steps will help you get the most out of your concrete surfaces and enjoy a sealed floor that can handle everything you throw at it (and more).

  • Check the structural integrity of concrete: We’ll run a water vapour transmission check to see how much water is in your concrete slab (too much can prevent coating adherence).
  • Clean the floor: We’ll remove dirt, dust, and debris that can disrupt optimal adherence of your epoxy coating.
  • Concrete grinding: Concrete grinding is required to create a uniform, even surface for future coating applications. This step is crucial in preparing your substrate for the final steps.
  • Patching holes (if needed): We may patch holes and fill minor imperfections to support optimal adhesion between your future coating and your concrete.

The process looks simple on paper - condition the existing floor before the application of new flooring, coating, or epoxy protection. However, getting this prep step wrong can lead to damage, cracks in your epoxy, stains, and more. If the floor was not prepared properly, this may result in coating failures and unnecessary re-works.

Can I do it myself?

While most home improvement projects can be attempted under the right DIY attitude, this activity is best left to the pros. Failure to prep your floor properly can lead to a poorly formed bond between your concrete surface and your epoxy coating.

More than an inconvenience, cracks or weak bonding can lead to your epoxy coating peeling away or chipping easily, leaving you with an expensive fix and plenty of time wasted.
