Vinyl installation - what to expect
While vinyl installation is simple enough for most DIYers to handle, we still recommend trusting professional installers with the job. Our flooring specialists at Carpets by Direct are efficient and experienced when it comes to vinyl installation. Read on to learn more about the process!
The installation process
Depending on the type of vinyl you have selected for installation, the process will vary in duration. The two types of installation methods for vinyl are self-stick or glue-down. The self-stick vinyl is easier to install since the adhesive backing is already on the tiles or planks. The glue-down type will require some more work.
After installation, you’ll need to make sure your room has good ventilation. You can help ensure good air flow by opening up windows, turning on fans and taking other steps to air the room out for about 48 to 72 hours. Then, it’s up to you to care for and maintain your new vinyl flooring. Follow these maintenance tips from our flooring experts!
