You should always make sure the concrete surface is clean and dry. This means if there is any dirt, debris, or trash lying around, you should get rid of it immediately. You can sweep up your floor and you can also use a warm water and soap mixture to scrub it down. Allow your floor enough time to dry thoroughly. Any holes or cracks in your floor will also need to be patched up, and any items extending onto the floor should be taped off, such as stairs or electric boxes.
