Floor preparation is the final part of the commercial floor removal process. It is also the most important. Unlike domestic floor preparation, commercial floors will usually be laid on a concrete subfloor over large areas. It is vital to make sure that every bit of this area is prepared correctly.
How does it work?
Commercial subfloor preparation will vary according to the type of floor you wish to re-lay. The most common types of commercial floors are tiles, vinyl, and carpet, but timber floors and cork also have commercial applications.
Tile floor preparation
Tiles are a staple of commercial flooring. Once we remove tiling, we may need to repair cracks and uneven patches to ensure the concrete is level.
Vinyl floor preparation
Vinyl is a common type of industrial flooring. It is usually laid straight onto concrete. The subfloor specification for vinyl is a tolerance of 4mm over 2m.
Carpet floor preparation
Carpets are generally found in office buildings, they have slightly better tolerances of (8-12mm over three continuous meters). Concrete subfloors need to be especially moisture free for carpets.
Timber floor preparation
Commercial timber floors are often found in conference centers or high-profile corporate buildings. They will usually be parquetry or glue-down composite wood floors. It is especially important that subfloors for timber are fee of sand and dust. The tolerance for concrete subfloors where timber is involved, is less than 3mm in height over three continuous meters.
Cork floor preparation
Cork floors are often seen in galleries and showrooms. The subfloor for this flooring type must be level and flat, with no adhesive remaining. They have a tolerance of no more than 5mm per 3m radius.
