Floating and troweling is a process of compacting and smoothing the surface which is performed as the concrete is starting to harden. … Proper curing of concrete generally comes down to two factors, keeping it moist and keeping it supported. Hydration of cement, as the word itself implies, involves reaction with water.PROCEDURE FOR PLACING OF CONCRETE: Before any concrete is placed the entire placing programme consisting of equipment, layout, proposed procedures and methods is planned and no concrete is placed until formwork is inspected and found suitable for placement.Clear the area of any objects or material that would interfere in the pouring process. This includes grass, rocks, trees, shrubs, and even old concrete.
