Compendious Installation and
This installation instructions intend to make a trouble-free
floor. Under normal conditions, balance the material over 48
hours before installation.
Flooring can either be nailed or glued onto the sub floor or
floating method or others. The sub floor must be flat clean,
dry and sturdy enough to support nails and glue.
Nail method: With this method each
individual plank is firmly fixed in place by screws. While
installing pre-finished bamboo flooring, you should nail it
at a 45 or 50 degree angle; you should make a hole
Glue method (one of the glue methods):
You should use a oil based glue or a glue with low water
content to glue the floor. If you use high water based glue,
it may make the flooring swell because the floor absorbs the
water from the glue.
Floating method: Floating is a method
where the planks are glued together along the tongue and
groove, but are not in anyway attached to the sub floor. An
underlayment padding is needed between the flooring planks
and the sub floor to create better floatation and to reduce
the walking noise.
When choosing the lacquered flooring, determine the suitable
level of space between the boards to accommodate local
weather conditions. For example, in humid regions, the floor
will need to be installed more loose to leave space for
possible expansion. And if the place is near to toilet,
kitchen, etc. , the floor also need
to be installed more loose to leave space for possible
For un-lacquered flooring, first, thoroughly clean the
surface, tongues and grooves. Apply at least three coats of
PU paint with an oily cloth. The thickness and shininess of
the lacquer should be determined according to the cost and
1-1.5CM SPACE SHOULD LEAVE BETWEEN ALL WALLS
AND THE EDGE OF THE FLOOR TO ALLOW FOR EXPANSION, AND COVER
THE SPACE WITH THE BAMBOO BASE BOARD.
WOOD SUB FLOORS SHOULD BE INSTALLED OVER
CONCRETE FOR BEST RESULTS.
SELECTION AND PLACEMENT OF EACH PIECE COLOR
WILL ENHANCE THE VISUAL EFFECT.
a. Flooring should not be soaked with water. If it is exposed
to large amounts of water, dry it immediately to avoid
swelling and open the window to let fresh air in.
b. Use a vacuum cleaner and a dry mop to clean. Use floor wax
to protect it.
c. Heavy items such as furniture, piano, etc. must not be
dragged across the floor, use protective cloth on their
d. Avoid degrading materials to reach the floor, like sand and
e. The floor should not be exposed directly to sunlight or
some electric heaters.
