black and white checkerboard flooring

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.

1

Check it's the right product, in good condition & that all packs have the same batch number.

2

Acclimatise the flooring by storing it flat in the room for at least 24 hours prior to fitting.

3

Keep a constant temperature, ideally between 16-22ºC, before, during and after fitting, and shade from sunlight throughout.

4

Switch off underfloor heating, for at least 48 hours before, during and after fitting. Gradually bring to full temperature over 7 days.

5

Prepare the subfloor using either latex screed over a solid (concrete) floor or flooring grade plywood (minimum 6mm). If necessary smooth over plywood with a suitable fibre reinforced smoothing compound, especially over joints if uneven. In all cases ensure the finished surface is completely flat, smooth, rigid, clean and permanently dry.

6

Agree the laying plan - establish where cuts will be made and the location of any borders etc. Check the recommended laying pattern and any other fitting advice specific to the design.

7

To create a hand-made appearance, the designer patterns are not printed centrally on the tile, making every tile slightly different to the next. Follow the installation instructions to achieve the optimum appearance.

8

Use the correct adhesive and follow the instructions carefully. Following the arrows on the reverse of the tile, settle the tiles into the adhesive by applying even pressure across the tile with a flooring roller or equivalent.

 
9

Be careful not to over-apply the adhesive - wipe away any residue from the surface of any tiles before it's allowed to dry. Leave for at least 24 hours before using the floor.

10

Good entrance mats will trap dirt, and regular sweeping and mopping will help protect the floor. A Harvey Maria FloorSpa care kit should be used to protect and care for the new floor from day one! See more
