Replacing a floor in a place of business is not a small task and should only be undertaken after careful consideration and consultation with a commercial or industrial flooring professional. You should be aware that re-flooring is a big job that will take time and could impact your daily working routines.
A plan should be made to help your business cope with any possible disruption, or you may wish to take some time off during the re-flooring process. Once again, consulting with a flooring professional will give you the best idea of exactly what you can expect and the measures you can take to ensure your business operates as close to normal as possible.
Clifford Flooring prides itself on operating on offering flexible, out of hours installations to minimise disruption to your business.
What can you expect at the re-flooring process and what you should prepare yourself and your business for
Making sure you choose the right floor
Depending on the type of business that you are involved in, there are many different types of commercial and industrial floor coatings available. Be sure to choose one that will best suit your operations. A commercial kitchen, for example, should not go with an epoxy floor coating, but instead opt for a polyurethane floor coating. Flake flooring may be a better choice for a retail space over others, due to it’s aesthetical appeal. To be sure that you make the right decision, contact a flooring specialist at Clifford Flooring to discuss your options.
Removing the old flooring
Some floors can be installed directly over the old flooring, while some types of flooring systems require that the old floor be removed entirely. If this is the case, you will need to plan for this procedure as it will be difficult to continue normal business operations while an old flooring system is removed. As you can imagine, it can be quite a messy and noisy process!
Preparing the surface
Regardless of whether or not the old surface has been removed or not, it is likely that the existing floor surface will need to be prepared before the new floor can be installed. Depending once again on the type of flooring system you have chosen, this may take considerable time or could be over quite quickly
Installing the new floor
If you have chosen a reliable and professional flooring team like Clifford Flooring, then installing your new floor should be a stress-free process. Of course, the amount of time it will take depends entirely on the flooring system you have decided to go with. There are many variables that affect the time taken for installation, such as those listed above.
Depending on the product applied, in some instances, Clifford Flooring is able to offer the addition of fast curing agents, which can assist in speeding up the curing process and ensuring that your business can return to normal as soon as possible.
