Check for dust and level out any unevenness at the start. A screed scraper can easily remove minor bumps. You can use a spirit level to check whether the surface is smooth enough on a regular basis. Using a vacuum cleaner, clean the entire surface.
For at least 48 hours prior to installation, the vinyl planks should be stored horizontally in the packs in the room where they will be installed. This allows the material to acclimate to room temperature and reduces the amount of "work" required after laying.
Before laying of the planks, the official laying instructions included in each package must be followed; otherwise, any warranty and guarantee claims will be invalid!
It is best to mix and lay floorboards from different packs to achieve the most uniform floor possible. Using the 5 mm tapping block and a hammer, join the next complete plank to the front of plank 1. Lay the remaining planks in this row in the same manner across the entire width of the room. When working with a hammer and tapping block is not possible due to a lack of space, you can use a pull bar to click the front connection together. To cut a plank, first measure and mark it. Then, using a square, score the plank with a utility knife, cut through, and snap off the back impact sound insulation. You can easily create and lay the floor sections in the next row.
ATTENTION: When laying, keep the edge distances of 5mm.
Finally, attach the baseboards with a mounting adhesive.
