STEP 1: —
CLEAN AND INSPECT THE EXISTING FLOOR
Whether we’re installing over an existing floor made from linoleum, hardwood, or concrete, or on top of a plywood subfloor, we need to inspect the surface to ensure it’s ready for installation. When prepping your installation site, we make sure the that surface is clean, dry, and level. It’s important to let the surface fully dry before installation because any moisture or debris left beneath the tiles can cause wear or promote the growth of mould and mildew.
STEP 2: —
LAY THE TILES
For equal distribution around the room’s edges, we want to ensure that the tiles that touch the wall are no less than half a tile wide. We make some marks and then, we place the first tile right in the centre of the plus mark and work out from there, eventually forming the carpet row by row. Lay the pieces before you adhere them to the floor so we can adjust as needed.
STEP 3: —
ADHERE THE TILES
Peel-and-stick carpet tiles have adhesive on the back of the tiles. We peel the protective coating to reveal the sticky part, and press the tile into the floor. When it comes to glue, however, we need the adhesive and u-notch trowel. We swipe the glue on the floor and spread an even coating over the surface where your carpet tile will go. Having a level surface is important, so we take a diligent care when adding adhesive.
