Getting Ready for Your Vinyl Flooring Installation
Vinyl flooring can be installed with one of three different techniques: full spread, perimeter adhered, or floating installation. With full spread installation, installers apply adhesive to the entire substrate. Perimeter adhered installation means that the adhesive is only applied to the seams and perimeters of the vinyl flooring.
A floating vinyl installation is when no adhesive is used to glue the vinyl to the substrate. As with any other flooring product, it’s important to be prepared and know what to expect.
Read on to learn more tips about what to expect during and after your luxury vinyl flooring is installed.
During & After Vinyl Installation
Depending on the type of vinyl you have selected for installation, the duration of the process will vary. The two types of installation methods for vinyl are self-stick or a glue-down type of vinyl. The self-stick vinyl is easier to install since the adhesive backing is already on the tiles or planks. The glue-down type will require some extra work.
No matter what installation method you've selected, you can be sure that our professionals are experienced in quality and efficiency.
After installation, you’ll need to make sure your room has good ventilation. You can help ensure good airflow by opening up windows, turning on fans, and taking other steps to air the room out for about 48 to 72 hours. Then, it’s up to you to care for and maintain your new vinyl floor.
