The vinyl installation process
Before your vinyl can be installed, you'll need to remove your old flooring and make sure your subfloor is prepared. You can contact us for more information on this. Once your substrate is ready to go, your luxury vinyl floor will be installed. Vinyl 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. With perimeter-adhered installation, the adhesive is only applied to seams and perimeters of the vinyl flooring. Finally, a floating vinyl installation is when no adhesive is used to glue the vinyl to the substrate.
During and after installation
Depending on the type of vinyl you have selected for installation, the process will vary in duration. You'll need to keep pets and children away from the area for their own safety. Once the job is done, you’ll need to make sure your room has good ventilation. You can help ensure good air flow 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.
