EZ-Floor Foam Underlayment Instructions
- The room, underlayment, flooring materials and adhesives must be maintained at 65 to 85 degrees F and the relative humidity below 60% for 48 hours prior to, during and after the installation.
- All subfloor work should be structurally sound, clean and level. The moisture content of the subfloor should not be more than 10 lbs. Per 1000 s/f 24rs as measured via a Calcium Chloride test, before the underlayment is applied.
- EZ-Floor LVT underlayment must be installed perpendicular to the length of the plank being installed and the moisture barrier must be facing down towards the subfloor.
- Determine the layout, noting that the seams of the underlay are at least 4” away form the seams of the material being installed.
- Cut the underlayment to the desired length and position it in the space to be covered.
- A 1/4” space needs to be maintained between the material and any walls or fixed objects for expansion and contraction.
- Cut the second sheet of underlay to length and position it with seam butted tightly to the first sheet.
- Secure the sheets with tape.
- Proceed to cover the entire room, making sure the sheets are tightly butted together, without gaps.
Note: Gaps in the underlayment may “telegraph” through some resilient floors, so the underlayment should be installed as smoothly and as well seamed as possible.
