Installing a Harvey Maria floor

Commercial Flooring Contact Us Help & Advice

All Harvey Maria glue-down LVT floors are suitable for laying in bathrooms, shower-rooms, kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, hallways, and laundry rooms.

And all are suitable for use with underfloor heating and durable enough for commercial use too.
For best results use a trained LVT Installer.


The subfloor (the base onto which the flooring is to be laid) should be clean, rigid, flat, smooth and dry (ensure moisture levels are within acceptable limits).


Suitable sub-floors include well fitted plywood (from 1/4"-1/2", sufficient to provide a rigid base) and screeded (smoothed) sold/concrete floors.


Flooring should be stored flat and left in piles for at least 48 hours prior to fitting in order to acclimate to room conditions.


Establish room temperature at a point between 61ºF to 72ºF (subfloor >59ºF) and keep within 2 degrees throughout acclimation, fitting and after for 72 hrs until adhesive has cured.


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 LVT ADHESIVES should be used when fitting a Harvey Maria floor. In warmer areas and with underfloor heating ensure the adhesive is suitable for higher temperatures.


Agree the laying plan with the installer. It's usually best to begin laying from the center of the room.


Tiles are cut using a sharp knife. Trained fitters will 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 100lb 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 FloorSpa kit should be used to protect and care for the floor from day one! See more
