Setting the project

While some vinyl products allow you to place the material over old flooring, others require you to install it directly on top of the subfloor or underlayment. If you are into a current flooring project, floors can be uneven, especially old ones; placing vinyl on the underlayment is in general the best choice. Keep into account that you can always find a way with Laminate flooring products, including vinyl. Consequently, your first installation step would be removing the old flooring. If you use a scraping tool to remove tiles, for example, apply pressure horizontally rather than downward, this way, you avoid denting the subfloor.

A flat surface is always welcomed exclusively for the elder ones. With this having said, it is important to check your surface flooring levels. However, a surface that might be in disrepair possibly must be replaced. Options like drill in a plywood underlayment with screws fairly easily, with the screw heads should be below the surface of the wood, can be a suitable loophole. If you install an underlayment over your existing subfloor, make sure the surface is equal.

Cleaning spaces are very important when laying tiles or any type of flooring products. Due to dust, debris and wood chips can cause bumps in vinyl plank flooring, you should thoroughly sweep before moving on to the next step. Use a broom first, and then pull out a vacuum with a hose attachment to pick up the remaining particles. Avoid tracking new dust and dirt once you’ve cleaned the subfloor. In fact, if you’re doing the project over the course of several days, you may want to stop after leveling the subfloor, then start the next day by cleaning.
