Glueing Down the Vinyl

Step 1: Once your floor is in the correct position, carefully fold half of the vinyl back. Be careful not to move the position of the floor.

Step 2: Follow all manufacturer guidelines for preparing and applying the adhesive. Apply the recommended amount of adhesive to the subfloor with a notched trowel. Notch size is important, so make sure you check the label to see what the correct notching is. Allow the glue to sit for the recommended amount of time before replacing the vinyl.

Step 3: Fold the vinyl back over and firmly press it to the subfloor.

Step 4: Do the same thing (steps 1-3) for the other half of your vinyl floor.

Step 5: If any of the adhesive got on the top of your floor, remove it by wiping it off with a cleaner according to the manufacturer instructions you have.

Step 6: Use a floor roller across the entire surface to remove any air bubbles and complete the bonding process.

Step 7: Use the manufacturer’s seam sealer on any seams. Again, be sure to follow manufacturer instructions.

Step 8: Replace all essential room items such as doors, toilets or any other essential items. No furniture or appliances at this time.  

Step 9: Wait 3 days before cleaning and 24 hours before replacing heavy furniture. Foot traffic should be kept to a minimum for 24 hours as well.
