Speaker: Mr. Bob Harris

Floor preparation is the process of preparing a floor surface for the installation of flooring material, such as tile, carpet, or hardwood. Here are the basic steps for floor preparation:

1. Cleaning: Clean the floor thoroughly to remove any dirt, debris, or previous coatings.

2. Repairing: Repair any cracks, holes, or damages to the surface. Fill any gaps or cracks with a suitable filler material.


3. Leveling: Check the floor for level and flatness. If the floor is not level, use a self-leveling compound to fill low spots and level the surface.


4. Sanding: If the floor has any rough spots or an uneven surface, sand it down with a floor grinder/floor scrabbler/floor scarifier/shot blasting machine/sanding machine until it is smooth and even.

5. Vacuuming: Vacuum the floor to remove any dust or debris from the sanding process.

6. Priming: Prime the floor with a floor primer to ensure proper adhesion of the flooring material.

7. Installing: Install the desired flooring material according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Note: Always wear protective equipment, such as eye protection, ear protection, and a dust mask, and follow all safety precautions when preparing a floor.
