These debris can include carpet tile tackifiers and bitumen which are firmly bonded to the subfloor and leave residues on the surface when flooring professionals remove the old floorcovering. Before installing a new product London flooring experts advise to remove contaminants and residues to ensure that a good bond is achieved – this process often requires mechanical preparation of the subfloor by scabbling or grit-blasting.
