People who put down commercial floors of course require commercial floor tools. There are many of these tools available, but of course some of these are power tools. For instance there are routers of all kinds, drills and screwguns, and those who deal specifically with wood flooring use planers and sanders. In addition they use oscillating multi tools, and power saws and today no floor layer can do without various kinds of grinders. Fastening nailers and compressors are additional tools that the floor installer may need. No commercial installer would leave behind the many vacuum tools needed to prepare the floor and clean it up after installation either.
Prior to putting down any kind of floor though, the professional commercial flooring installer will use a variety of measuring and layout tools, many of which augment the precision, straightforwardness and efficiency of their work. Today many of these tools use lasers of course. Polishing tools have come a long way today too.
Unless you are in the business of putting down commercial floors, the following may not even enter your mind. There are special lift systems that are used by commercial floor installers to lift overweight fixtures such as library stacks or merchandise racks out of the way. There are commercial floor tools for every job.
Science figures widely in it too, as we now have any number of primers, adhesives and grout, all high quality that require minimum effort as opposed to what it used to be like in the “old days.” Waterproofing tools now seal the substrate completely such as in and around foundations, swimming pools and car washes.
With any floor, no matter what kind, one must of course have an absolutely flat subfloor, thus the contractor must prime and consolidate critical substrates, as well as fill in cracks, thus leveling compounds are used to create as near as a perfect substrate as possible.
Today both industrial and commercial applications require hard-wearing surfaces that were unheard of a few years back. When these commercial floor tools came out the waiting times for them to dry seemed interminable, thus a business had to close while waiting for it to cure. In the present day though there are products that dry within an hour after they are laid down. One may even drive heavy equipment over them without pause such as forklifts or cars, thus they are perfect for commercial garages where fleets of cars may come in and out of them constantly.
