Floor Preparation

In Brisbane and Gold Coast

Do you want to apply epoxy coatings to your floors in your Brisbane or Gold Coast business?

Are you looking to grind and level your concrete floor prior to installing floor coverings?

Do you need to remove existing floor coverings prior to installing new flooring?

If so, then solid floor preparation is the first step. Without it, you could ruin your floor and cost yourself thousands of dollars. While many homeowners think applying the flooring of choice is all you need to do, they are mistaken. In fact, floor preparation is probably the most crucial step in the entire process. It all comes down to the condition of the substrate prior to installing your floor covering.

Without the correct floor preparation procedure, your concrete floor will have nasty stains, imperfections, and is uneven, this can create massive complications with your new floor covering. What you’re left with will be a beautiful new floor that will be uneven in undulation and or potential delamination of your floor covering, whether it be epoxy, vinyl, tiles, timber or direct stick carpet. That’s why it’s imperative to perform adequate floor preparation before applying any floor covering.



The question is, should you tackle the floor preparation yourself? Absolutely not! Even the tiniest mistake could lead to permanent damage to your floor and a huge repair bill. Processes like concrete grinding, shot blasting, and floor leveling are complex and require great skills. You need to hire trained and experienced professionals to handle the preparation correctly. If you’re looking to install floor coverings in Brisbane or Gold Coast, you need to use us at My Floor!



At My Floor, we take floor preparation very seriously. After all, the performance and longevity of the floor covering is completely reliant on the substrate preparation. If the floor preparation gets done incorrectly, the coating or adhesive might not form a strong bond. As a result, your epoxy coating or floor adhesive will wear away and peal off much faster than normal. That’s why our team is meticulous about getting the preparation done right every time.

At My Floor, we’re all about reducing stress for our customers. We also excel at completing projects with minimal downtime. That way, you can continue your project or business as usual with no disruption! If you need floor preparation in Brisbane or Gold Coast, we’re by far your best option.

When floor preparation gets done the right way, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

Allows for a strong bond to form. 

A big factor in the performance and appearance of your floor covering or coating is its bond to the floor. A strong bond can’t form unless the surface gets prepared adequately. We’ll make sure that you get an optimal bond for increased longevity for your coating!

Ensures a totally flat, even surface.

Nobody likes an uneven floor! Not only is it unsightly, but it can even be dangerous where there’s heavy foot traffic. Our floor preparation techniques will ensure that your surface is flat in accordance with the Australian Standard!

Provides a smooth surface with no flaws or imperfections.

Our floor preparation will get rid of all uneven areas, bumps, cracks, and more. At My Floor, we take extra time and care in preparing the surface to make sure that it’s totally smooth.

Provides an immaculate floor free of contaminants.

The last and probably most important step is to clean the surface completely. We will remove as much as possible, all dirt, rust, chemicals, grease, stains, oil, paint, and more. You see, if we don’t rid the floor of these contaminants, delamination of your floor covering or coating is a high possibility.

At My Floor, our team is well versed in different types of preparation techniques. Depending on the type of surface or environment, we may select a different technique. Factors that we check for include:


  • The surface type
  • The environment, moisture levels, traffic, and temperature
  • The type of coating that’s getting installed


Each one of these factors can lead to a different type of technique. Let’s take a quick look at each one so you can get a feel for them all!

Floor removal, removal of timber tiles, carpet, and vinyl

So this is usually our first step in any floor preparation. Our team will get rid of any existing tiles, glue, and cement bedding. We’ll also get rid of concrete paint, curing agents, or existing coatings. The goal is to strip the existing floor so we can start new completely. We’ll also completely clean the underlying surface.

Floor leveling with cement leveling compounds

We want to make sure that the underlying surface is completely even. To do so, we make use of a concrete leveling agent. It spreads across uneven slabs and fills in any low spots. As a result, it creates a new, completely level surface. Once it sets, it cures with great speed and durability.

Abrasive sandblasting

This is a treatment used to clean a surface completely. It makes use of abrasive media that’s blasted through a nozzle with compressed air. You can use several different media, including plastic, copper slag, ceramic grit, and more.

Concrete shot blasting

This involves shooting steal beads at a high velocity out of a machine. These beads can blast away stains and debris to stubborn for traditional cleaning. Shot blasting is more aggressive then concrete grinding is often used to remove thick coatings from concrete.

Concrete grinding

This is by far the most cost effective and common technique for preparing a concrete surface. At My Floor, we use state-of-the-art diamond grinders that get fantastic results. Of course, we’re always careful to choose the correct grit diamond for each surface. Concrete grinding can level out, clean, and smooth a surface all in one go!
