RECOMMENDATIONS FOR LAYING
Before the laying process, the floor, should not remain in open areas without windows and doors, storage and laying temperatures should never drop below 15°C and no air humidity. It is good practice to acclimatize the laminate floor in the environment where it will be installed at least 48 hours before placing the floor boxes in the center of the room, it is strictly forbidden the exposure to the sun’s rays. Before installing the BAUFLOOR® laminate floor, make sure that the base is cleaned by debris and dirt that may compromise the flatness of the floor. The BAUFLOOR® laminate floor can not be installed on soft substrates (carpets, etc.). Visual inspection of the Planks should be carried out avoiding the use of those which have deformations in the joints. For the installation of the floor, it is essential to use a steam barrier if an acoustically correct environment is desired, it is advisable to use high density substrates. Use the expansion profile when the floor is installed in rooms larger than 8/10 m in length. The laying of the BAUFLOOR® laminate floor takes place with the so-called floating technique, i.e. clipping the individual strips together with a male-female combination: this type of laying allows you to fix the laminate floor even on pre-existing floors, without having to dismantle the old coating. Before laying the BAUFLOOR® laminate floor, an insulating layer, generally a mattress or other similar material, is placed on the existing floor, in order to soundproof the floor, to mitigate any irregularities of the original base and to protect it from contact moisture. During laying, remember to leave between the laminate floor and the wall a gap of about one centimeter as the laminate is subject to dilatation in case of temperature and humidity changes, this space will then be hidden with the laying of the skirting board or primeter profile. For the laying of the floor use the appropriate equipment. To join stacks use only the beacon provided by most hardware stores, never knock directly on laminated floor with hammer or hard-weight tools. The BAUFLOOR® laminate floor can be installed on preexisting heated floors, always ask the technical dpt. to look for the appropriate substrate.
MAINTENANCE AND ADVICE FOR USE
For maintenance, wash with well wrung cloth and neutral detergents, never use a direct jet of water on the floor. It is advisable to equip the furniture with protections suitable for use on laminate floors.
