Preparation of the substrate
Surface preparation is a crucial first step in flooring installation, applicable to diverse substrates like concrete, steel, and asphalt. This initial phase involves meticulously removing any existing floor coatings, coverings, and surface impurities like Laitance. The goal is to create an optimal surface, ensuring a strong adhesion for any new flooring materials.
