When you start to make repairs and the floor is in terms of the floor, the first question is the leveling of the floor. Because what is a sin to hide, the floors in ordinary apartments are far from the ideal. And any high -quality floor covering simply requires even and high -quality sex. This is especially true for the bathroom, in which a “warm floor” or bulk floors are needed.
First of all, you need to carefully remove the old coating. It is best to use a punch for these purposes. In a hollow mode, he will qualitatively raise everything unnecessary, the main thing is not to hurt the supporting plate. Work is painstaking, but necessary.
Then you need to prepare everything you need for work:
• level, thread for the lighthouse, hammer and nails;
• corner and roller with a set of hands;
• primer and bitumen binding mastic for isolation;
You can start work.
Step one. We make a thorough primer. At first we apply one layer, but often it is simply absorbed into the stove. We are waiting for about a day and apply the second layer. In a well -ventilated room, the primer is enough for the full readiness of the day. If the room is completely closed, you need to give two days. Most often, a primer layer is applied with a roller or ordinary brush, like a paint.
Step two. We make waterproofing, because the bathroom is always a large amount of water. We dilute the bitumen-kushka mastic according to the instructions on the package and apply it with a brush or again a roller on the entire surface of the floor. The layer can be made of any necessary thickness, because it is thicker than a primer and you can control the height of the layer.
Step third. Make the marking of the height of the flat floor in the corners of the room using the level. Then drive the nails and pull the thread-beacon. On it we will control the further work.
Step fourth. We fall asleep the entire area of the floor with small expanded clay (2-3 centimeters) to the height of the estimated floor. Put the corners that will be the main control of the evenness and the correctness of our work. The installation step of the corners of about 1 meter, one thread is better not to do control – the quality of work may suffer.
Step fifth. The self -leveling solution is kneaded by the construction mixer Lee with the same perforator. Knead as much solution as enough for a couple of fill sections. Section, this is a zone determined by the corners that we have already established. Since part of the solution will be absorbed into expanded clay, the fill should be done with small interruptions. Когда весь раствор будет полностью залит в секцию, надо выждать около получаса и долить его там, где есть недостаток. Because the excess in one section simply flows into another, but the shortcomings must be equalized.
Sixth step and last. You need to walk a little on the surface of the solution by the bar or corner in order to “disperse” the excess and additionally “trim” it – although this is not always necessary. So continue in each section until the entire room is full.
Well, it is clear to anyone that such a filling should start from the far wall to the door. Then we need to try not to let home, different animals (if any) and try not to get into the freezing mixture most inadvertently.
The process is not too complicated and not very long, but what effect! Perfectly flat floor, suitable for absolutely any coating! And all this you did yourself!
