How do you prime a floor before self leveling?

Clean the floor
The floor needs to be primed before adding floor leveler and you'll want the primer to soak into the floor, not the dirt and dust sitting on top of it. Keep a marker or roll of tape in your pocket while you're vacuuming, and mark all the holes or cracks in the wood that will need to be sealed up.
