If you are an employer, then it is important that you make sure that the workplace you provide, is up to code. You can easily access all of the information on the Work Health & Safety Act 2011 by visiting the government website. If your flooring is not up to specification, then you may find that you will need to address this as quickly as possible. No matter what type of flooring system you are looking to install, using a checklist can help to make sure that the job is done correctly, and prolong the life of your floor.
Find A Flooring Specialist
Finding a company that offers floor coating in Sydney is a task made simple by using the internet. You will need to research each potential company thoroughly on the internet and whittle them down to a handful of companies that you wish to contact. Have each company tender a quote, they may wish to survey the floor before giving you a quote so make sure that your schedule is flexible. When you have received all of the quotes you can then make a decision as to which company to use and schedule your new flooring installation.
Preparing The Surface
You may find that you need to prepare the surface before the contractors arrive and this will include giving it a good clean. Remove everything from the floor including any equipment where possible, and make the floor as clean as possible. You should make sure that all dust and debris is removed which will allow you to see the overall condition and identify areas which will need to be repaired.
Repair The Floor
When your floor is clean, and you have been able to see all of the chips and cracks that there are, you will want to make repairs before the new coating is applied. It is important to ensure that you fix the floor where it is needed and that the surface is left flat and level. When the floor is in good condition applying the coating will be much easier, and the overall finish will be far superior.
A Final Clearance
Now that the floor is ready for the new coating you will want to remove any equipment that is left. You will want to make sure that there is plenty of room for the workers when they are installing your new floor, to help prevent any accidents during the installation. One last sweep of the floor and you are ready for the new surface to be laid!
Keep Your Schedule Open
You will often find that installation is easiest to do over a weekend when a lot of companies are close. If this is the same in your circumstances, you will want to make sure that you are going to be available during the installation. You will not have to stay and supervise the entire process, but do be available in case any problems arise that you may have to address.
With a bit of research and careful planning, you can have a new flooring system that meets regulations, with as little disruption to your business as possible. A safe workplace makes for a happy work environment, and happy employees are also more productive!
