Explanation:
Just an opinion because I don't get to fully understand the meanig of "the fall". Is it a splodge? If so the translation would be:

¿La chorreadura se produjo sobre el concreto o en el enlucido de la losa?

Explanation:
Siguiendo el consejo de Darío, publico mi respuesta por si puede ayudar.
la elección entre hormigón y cemento, así como entre enlosado y alicatado dependerá del contexto. normalmente se usa hormigón en trabajos no acabados donde la pared o el suelo están "en bruto"; enlosado encaja mejor en suelos y alicatado en paredes como las del cuarto de baño y la cocina.
