CHOOSE THE RIGHT FLOORING FOR THE ROOM In order to simplify things for customers, there is an official flooring classification system. The floors are classified according to how much wear the surface will tolerate. Wear is often greater in the hall and kitchen than in the bedroom, so floors of different qualities are available. If you know where your floor is going, we can help you make the right choice.

This is the classification for a floor in a frequently used domestic environment e.g. the living room and for a floor with light wear in an office environment. Not for damp cellars, wet rooms or rooms with a floor drain.

If you have calculated your flooring requirements in square feet, no problem, just multiply your square feet by 0.092903 and this will give you the square metre requirement. e.g. 120 square feet x 0.092903 = 11.14 square metres. To calculate how much skirting or edge moulding you require, work out the total length of all your edges in metres then divide by 2 metres. Edge profile and skirting is sold in 2 metre lengths.

HOW TO LAY YOUR FLOOR

10mm 3/8”

Key considerations and preparation 1. Ensure you have the correct amount of flooring - more than what you need. (you can always return full packs). 2. Leave the flooring in the room you intend to lay it in for at least 48 hours in its packaging- this allows it to climatise. 3. Familiarise yourself with the instructions on the packet ensuring you have all the correct tools. 4. First, make sure there is enough space for your underlay material and new floor under any doors. 5. Make sure that the existing floor is clean, dry and level. If your existing floor is made of concrete or stone, you should always cover it with SPÄRRA plastic sheeting. All floors also need NIVÅ floor lining in place. 6. For the best results lay the boards in the direction of the incoming light. 7. Flooring expands and contracts with temperature changes, so ensure you use the FIXA spacers around the perimeter of your flooring.



8. Finally, for a neat finish you can create a nice looking transition between the floor and walls by adding skirting boards and/or quarter round profiles.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR FLOOR Laminated flooring should never be sanded, waxed or polished. The hard wearing surface is easy to clean and maintain. Normal cleaning, such as sweeping, vacuuming and dry mopping if the floor is slightly dirty. Stains should be removed with a moist cloth. If needed, the floor should be damp mopped with a mild detergent and dried with a cloth. Soap, wax or floor polish should never be used on laminated flooring, because they leave a film that attracts dirt and dust. If the floor becomes damaged, you can replace one plank or several. Because laminated flooring doesn’t bleach from sunlight, you can replace an old plank with a new one without worrying about any shifts in colour. Tip! Take good care of your floor by using felt floor protectors under your furniture and floor protectors under things with rolling castors. It’s also a good idea to put a doormat in front of the entrance as an effective way to stop gravel and pebbles from coming in. Because laminated flooring is wood-based, it’s important to always wipe up any water from the floor. NOTE: Never pour water directly on the floor.
