Fitting a Harvey Maria floor

Commercial Flooring Contact Us Help & Advice

All Harvey Maria 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 fitter.

1

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

2

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

3

Flooring should always be stored flat and left in piles for at least 24 hours prior to fitting in order to acclimate to the conditions of the room.

4

The ambient room temperature, and the temperature of the flooring and adhesive, should be at least 64ºF (sub-floor temperature at least 59ºF).

5

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.

6

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.

7

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

8

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.

 
9

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.

10

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
