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.

1

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).

2

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

3

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

4

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.

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 installer. 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
