Why Floor Preparation is ImportantEpoxy floor coatings are durable and affordable. They are a perfect solution if you’re looking to cover a concrete surface in a time-effective manner. To get the most benefit from these products, however, it’s important to first prepare the area for treatment. Fortunately, the process is simple and straightforward. Here’s a look at our basic installation process.  We think this will help you understand why floor preparation is important.

  • Remove all items from the room to be treated. It’s impossible to do a good job while trying to work around table legs, pallets, etc.
  • Then the floor needs to be mechanically prepared by either, shot blasting, diamond grinding or scarifying.
  • Next the area needs to be thoroughly cleaned and vacuumed.
  • Once the floor is clean, then it’s ready to apply the first coat of epoxy.
  • Allow the first coat of epoxy to tack over before applying a second coat if applicable.
  • Finally, apply a durable urethane topcoat for the best wear protection.
  • Mark off the area to prevent anyone from walking on it while it cures.
