Home Fitting Info Fitting a Harvey Maria floor

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.
For best results use a Harvey Maria trained fitter, ask your Approved Retailer for more information about their supply and fitting services.


The sub-floor onto which the flooring is to be laid should be permanently dry, clean, rigid, free of flaws and flat.


Suitable sub-floors include well fitted plywood (from 6mm - 12mm, sufficient to provide a rigid base) and screeded concrete floors.


Flooring should always be stored flat and left in piles 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 the floor, and gradually brought up to full operating temperature over a period of days.


ONLY HARVEY MARIA RECOMMENDED ADHESIVES should be used when fitting a Harvey Maria floor. For areas exposed to strong sunlight and with underfloor heating Harvey Maria specialist High-Temperature Adhesive should be used.


A laying plan is agreed with the fitter, see the LAYING PATTERNS page here. It's usually best to begin laying from the centre of the room.


Tiles are cut using a sharp Stanley knife. Trained fitters have time-saving tips techniques for cutting at the edge of the room and for tricky curves and corners.


The floor tile is bedded in to the adhesive by applying even pressure across the tile with a flooring roller or equivalent. Excess glue is wiped away before it is allowed to dry.


Regular sweeping and mopping will help protect the new floor and a good entrance mat used to trap dirt. A Harvey Maria floor care kit should be used to protect and care for the floor from day one! See more
