Leave the planks to acclimatise for 48 hours depending on the local temperature and air humidity. The ideal room temperature is approximately 22Â° C and the ideal air humidity is approximately 55%
Step 2: Subfloor and Surface
Make sure the floor is level with not more than a 3mm gap in a 1.5 metre level. Clean and smooth the subfloor, remove any grease; install the damp-proof layer, check the laminate planks for any damage.
Step 3: The First Row
Place a plank in the corner with the tongue side turned towards the wall. Roll the front edge of the second plank into the first plank by using the tongue-in-groove method and continue until the first row is ready. Remember that 8 – 10mm expansion joint should be allowed for around the perimeter of the area.
Step 4: Completing the Floor
Using the off-cut of the first row, start on the second row by placing the short ends of the planks together to form the second row.
Carefully lifting the second row, place it firmly against the first row at an angle of 30 degrees and press downwards at the same time pushing the second row firmly into the first.
Make sure the joints have closed or are firmly together throughout the process.
Step 5: The Final Row
On the final row cut the planks lengthwise remembering to leave an 8 – 10mm expansion gap.
Step 6: Enjoy the Floor
You must wait 24 hours after the installation before you can enjoy your new flooring.
