Step 1:

Give the planks 2 days to get used to the room's temperature. Leave them in the unopened package in the center of the room where the floor will be put in. The best temperature is between 15 and 22 degrees Celsius, and the humidity should be between 30 and 75%. If the weather is too hot or too cold, it's a good idea to let things sit out in the open for a week before using them.Take away any wet or absorbent flooring material like carpet or needle felt. You don't have to take out floor covering like PVC, linoleum, or VCT if it's been made waterproof.

Step 2:

Take off any flooring that is already there before installing the wooden subfloor. There should be no mould or insects. Check that the floor is flat. Make sure all the parts are secure. If the wooden floor is flat (not bumpy by more than 2mm over 1 meter), you can put T-build® LVT Rigid CORE flooring with its underlay straight on it. If the wooden floor underneath is not completely flat and has some bumps between 2mm and 4mm, you should put down a layer of plywood or hardboard to level it out. This is especially important if the planks of the floor are cupped or warped. If the floor under the carpet or tiles is not smooth and has bumps of more than 4mm, you need to add a special material or a wooden board on top of it to make it even. Put the new floor in a different direction than the old one.

The space under the wooden floor needs enough air to be able to flow through it. Make sure there is enough air flowing in the area by having openings in the walls or windows. Make sure there is at least 1/2 inch of openings for every 40 inches of floor space. Also, remove anything blocking the air flow. The wood should not be too wet and should have less than 10% moisture.

Step 3:

We need to follow extra rules if there is heating or cooling system under the floor. Your person who installed your heated floors must make sure the floor doesn't get too hot. It should never go over 28 degrees Celsius. The part that makes the heat for the floor needs to be at least 8mm away from the back of the T-BUILD Flooring. You can either put this thing in a flat layer of concrete or use a thick board between the heating system and the floor. This makes sure that the warmth spreads evenly all over the floor. Make sure the ground is level, tidy, strong, and dry.

Hey Make sure your floor is stable before installing, otherwise it might get damaged and break when people walk on it.Check that the base floor is flat and even. If there are bumps or dips that are taller than 2mm in a space that's 1 meter long, we need to make it smooth. If something is not flat and has bumps that are bigger than 1mm in a space of 20cm, it is not good.

Step 4:

To put in your T-build® LVT Rigid Core floor, you'll need some basic tools like a knife, pencil, measuring tape, and safety goggles and gloves. Look at all the pieces before and while putting them in place. Do not use broken panels. See if we can take off the old skirting. You don't have to remove the skirting boards on the wall. You can just add the right beading or profiles to finish the floor. Make sure the doors still work after putting in the new floor. When you install your kitchen's cooking area or any big and heavy object, make sure to do it before you place the T-build® flooring. The T-build® flooring needs to be able to move easily around heavy things so that there are no gaps or loose pieces.

Step 5:

Start the first row with a full piece of wood. First, cut off the edges of the board on both the long and short sides using a saw. Then, place the board against the walls with the cut edges facing towards the wall. Put small pieces from the installation kit between the floor boards and the wall. Make sure the gap in your expansion joint is 3 to 5mm wide. Put the new panel in at a slanted angle of 20 to 30 degrees compared to the old panel. Gently move the panel up and down and push it forward at the same time. The panels will fit together on their own.This is really important when putting in regular tile designs.

This will also make sure the last row isn't too small. If the last row is shorter than 40mm, it's easier to install if you make the planks in the first row shorter,mix the panels well when you put them in, so you don't have too many that look the same grain next to each other. To make the floor look good, it's best to lay the boards in the same direction as the longest wall and the light. Before you start, measure the room carefully so you can lay the boards evenly.

Step 6:

Uniclic® allows you to connect the panels together simply by tapping them, without having to lift them up. Use the special tool Uniclic® tapping block for this method. Don't connect the planks with just one hit. To prevent the panels from getting broken, you need to join them slowly. If it's tough to install the Unilic® planks with the tapping block in some areas, then. You can put the planks next to each other against the wall and use a tool and hammer to connect them. When you have a few rows, you can add more by putting a new pack on top of the rows already in place. Move to the other side and tap the small edge of the board against the board before it.Put both your hands near the joint in the picture and pull the long side of the plank towards you. Join the panels together by clicking them. Do it until you reach the end of the room. If the room is wider or longer than 13 meters, you need to add a joint in the middle.

The swelling and shrinking of the floor happens in a straight line. This means that if the floor is bigger, then the edges will move more. The humidity in the room changes throughout the year. It's really important that the floor can change its size too. To avoid problems, leave a small space of 3 to 10 millimeters around the edges, pipes, thresholds, and under doors when installing the floor. We can cover expansion joints by using a strip that is attached to the floor. When you build something that has different rooms, you have to leave some space between them so they can move without breaking. This space is called an "expansion joint". Under the door. If you put T-BUILD® in places where the temperature changes a lot, be sure to leave a big gap so it can expand without breaking. On very hot days, keep the product out of the sun and make sure the floor is not too hot (over 28 degrees Celsius). If this happens, the product could get too big and become twisted, leading to it becoming unattached. Take away all the pieces that go in between things.

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR FLOOR

After the floor is put in, you're allowed to walk on it right away. Make sure that. The air in the room is always a little bit wet and sticky because it has at least 50% moisture in it. If you want to, you can use a machine called a humidifier. For cleaning up dry things, you can use a dust pan and brush or a vacuum cleaner.

Check that your vacuum cleaner has gentle wheels and a special brush for wooden floors, so you don't damage them. You can keep things moist and take care of them. It's not a good idea to get things wet when cleaning them. Keep furniture and the legs of chairs safe. Use a floor mat at the door to stop dirt, water and sand from coming inside.

Use office chairs with soft wheels that won't damage the T-build® floor, or use a desk mat that's appropriate for the floor. Don't pull furniture on the floor, pick it up instead. Use the right cleaner to remove tough stains from luxury vinyl floors, and don't use harsh chemicals that can damage the coating. It's a good idea to clean and shine the floor every 8-12 months to make the PU coating look new again. If you want to know more please contact our team member and we will be happy to help.
