How to install residential flooring

Residential flooring is a popular flooring for improvement in recent years. To ensure the appearance and smoothness of the installation, there are many issues that require attention. When installing the floor there are approximately five steps that you should know and thus know how to choose it and who to hire for that job. The first step is to clean the floor. The second step is to plan the specific installation location of the new residential flooring. The third step is the specific installation process. The fourth step is the top floor of the store. The last step is to clean the surface of the floor.

The proper choice of floors should not be based only on the color or its attractive design and texture: before deciding, check that the product is suitable for the use it will be used for, you will do it directly on Philadelphia Flooring Solutions.

Some questions to help you choose the material:

Is it for outdoors or indoors?

Will the material be for the Floor or Wall?

What level of traffic will it have to endure?

Will it be in a dirty or clean sector?

Will it be exposed to external agents such as steam, chemicals, snow, or moisture?

The Installer must deliver a detailed budget of the materials that will be required as well as the cost of Labor (Cost per square meter). In the materials, you must consider a percentage of waste as well as the material for a possible future repair. That’s why we advise you to contact us directly at Philadelphia commercial flooring.

When installing the flooring:

The first step is to calculate the specific installation area so that the material can be reasonably purchased. After calculating the area, lay the line on the floor you need to install. Please note that the line is very delicate work. If the line is not good, it will affect the effect of the installation, this step is done by the Philly Floor Store technicians. After the line is released, the position must be determined.

Then, start the specific installation process, the technician should fix the first floor with self-tapping screws, and then the level is used to measure whether the laying position is flat and correct.

After the flooring is installed, surface sludge and debris will be cleaned.

After cleaning, check whether the joints are flat, and then grind the seam where it is not even, and then clean the grout.

Important details when choosing the residential flooring:

  • It is very important to select the most appropriate adhesive for the type of tile, substrate, and conditions to which the installation will be exposed.

  • You will also need to check the porosity of the substrate by wetting the surface. If the substrate absorbs it quickly, the substrate will need to be moistened before applying the adhesive so that it does not steal moisture from it. On non-porous surfaces, the adhesive can be applied on a dry substrate.

  • The installer from Philly Floor Store will need to determine the center of the area by tracing a cross in the middle of the installation, which will dictate the placement of the pieces.

  • It must be ensured that there is a perfect leveling of the pieces, using a spirit level and a rubber mallet. Leveling is achieved by placing the level in the middle of two pieces, tapping them lightly at the corners.

  • It is very important to prepare the adhesive following the instructions on the packaging. The amount of water in the mix, the recommended resting times, the homogeneity of the mix, and the open time of the material are decisive in the performance of the adhesive and therefore for the safety of the installation.
