All Harvey Maria floors are suitable for laying in bathrooms, shower-rooms, kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, hallways, conservatories and utility rooms.
And all are suitable for use with underfloor heating and durable enough for commercial use too.
The following handy hints and fitting videos will help you to create your perfect floor.
The sub-floor onto which your new flooring is to be laid should be permanently dry, clean, rigid, free of flaws and flat.
Suitable sub-floors include well fitted plywood (from 4mm - 12mm, sufficient to provide a rigid base) and screeded concrete floors. See videos for fitting plywood and screeding below.
Flooring should always be stored flat. Leave in piles in the room for at least 24 hours prior to fitting in order to acclimatise to the conditions of the room.
The ambient room temperature, and the temperature of the flooring and adhesive, should be at least 18ºC (sub-floor temperature at least 15ºC).
Underfloor heating should be switched off for 48 hours before and after laying your new floor, and gradually brought up to full operating temperature over a period of days.
USE ONLY HARVEY MARIA RECOMMENDED ADHESIVES. For conservatories and areas with underfloor heating use the appropriate Harvey Maria specialist High-Temperature Adhesive.
Work out your laying plan - check the fitting video below or visit the LAYING PATTERNS page here. It's usually best to begin laying from the centre of the room.
Cut the tiles with a sharp Stanley knife, and have plenty of spare blades to hand. The fitting video has lots of time-saving tips including techniques for cutting at the edge of the room.
Bed the floor in to the adhesive by applying even pressure across the tile with a flooring roller or equivalent. Wipe away any excess glue while still wet and allow to dry.
Regular sweeping and mopping will help protect your new floor & use a good entrance mat to trap dirt. For best results use the floor care kit. See more
