Installation & Maintenance VINYL TILES
- The surface of floor must be completely dry. Please note that even though the floor may appear dry, it may still retain moisture. Moisture testing is a mandatory step in sub-floor preparations.
- In newly constructed buildings, it is necessary to dry the flooring surface for 7 to 14 days prior to application to ensure that no moisture is retained in cement surfaces.
- Any polish, paint, dirt, etc. must be completely removed from the floor before installation. Dry mop and sweep the entire floor to remove surface sand, soil, and debris.
- Ensure that floor surface is flat and level. Use a scraper to flatten the floor surface or a putty knife to remove gum and/or labels.
- Maintain room temperature above 15C (59F) before installation. Adhesive and flooring products must be kept in the same environment for at least 24 hours before installation begins.
- Use only Ardex adhesives
- Prepare all rulers, cutters, adhesives, spreaders, and compass dividers before commencing work.
- Check that all application products are of the same batch/lot number
- Find the exact center of floor by marking vertical and horizontal lines across the floor.
- Measure the squareness of the marked lines, and then start applying adhesives on the first quarter of the marked floor space.
- Work on small portions of the floor at a time and apply adhesives accordingly. Optimum usage of adhesive is 0.3 to 0.45kg per square meter.
- Approximate 20 to 30 minutes after applying adhesive, lay the flooring products.
- Keep distance of around 5mm from the wall and the edge of the flooring products. Press products down firmly so that the product lies flat on the ground.
- As adhesive is flammable, avoid any contact with sparks or open flames.
- As adhesive dried up quickly, remove excess adhesive immediately by using alcohol or alkali water.
- In order to allow the flooring adhesives time to cure, restrict traffic and do not move furniture onto a newly installed floor for at least 24hours after installation. Additionally, allow at least 3 days after installation before washing a newly tiled floor.
- Be careful not to put any dents or marks on the floor when moving heavy furniture.
- Furniture polish and/or rubber supports may leave stains on the floor surface over a long period of time. Check the bottom of furniture to ensure it is clean before moving it on to the new floor.
- The application of surface dressing is a function of the floor usage. Under high traffic conditions, the dressing should be stripped and reapplied every one or two months. However, under general household conditions, this may only need to be done once every six months.
- When removing stains and polish, do not use strong solvents or household cleaning fluids. Instead, use widely known alkali water-based floor polish removers and cleaner.
