Details of steps to install NeoFloor SPC flooring:
Step 1: Check the background layer
It is possible to construct NeoFloor SPC flooring on brick, stone, cement, etc., just need to reach a certain flatness. Before construction, it is necessary to ensure that the floor surface is dry, clean, and free of water.
Should be installed vertically in the room if this dimension is less than 15m. You should install it in the direction from the main door or horizontally if the length of the room is over 15m.
For maximum aesthetic effect, cut off 30cm of top plank. Install so that the ends of each bar are staggered, 1/3 apart of the plate length. Note that the required distance between the base of the wall and the edge of the floor is at least 5-7mm because this is a safe distance for the expansion of the entire floor during use.
To attach the bracket in step 3, leave 5mm between the wall and the board to install the spacer, fix it temporarily with adhesive tape.
NeoFloor SPC flooring uses a yin and yang locking system to link the floor slabs. Place the slab at a 45-degree angle and fit it into the joint. Once the floorboard is on the correct foot, gently press down with your hand so that the floorboard is flat. Next, gently tap with a rubber hammer to help seal the joints, which in help keep the floor level.
Installation in the last rows: Note that the distance of 5 -7 mm is the minimum distance between the edge of the floor and the base of the wall. Measure the size of the last row of flooring by placing it snugly against the last row, using another board as a ruler parallel to the floor (5 -7 mm away). Then use a carving knife to cut along the floor plate according to the floor plate as a parallel ruler. Thus, we will have a floor slab with the right size for final installation.
Step 3: Moulding and skirting boards installation
The molding has the effect of connecting the floor when you want to change the color of the floor, connecting between two rooms, between two different material floors or ending at the edge of the wall. To install the molding, use glue to bond, can be Silicon, Titebond or Xbond glue.
The skirting boards have the effect of fixing the edge of the floorboard, pressing the floor to the ground, and at the same time covering the gap between the edge of the floor and the base of the wall. You just need to remove the spacer from the wall and put the skirting boards in. Use concrete pins or nails to attach them.
Finally, check again to see if there is an error, then clean the floor and so you have a satisfactory floor.
