1. Analysis of the subfloor

a) Irregularity
The surface upon which the floor will be installed must be clean (without dirt, grease, wax and oil), dry and even and without imperfections (acceptable up to 1 mm). The beauty of the finished floor depends upon the quality of the subfloor. If there are irregularities, they will appear in the finished floor. To avoid this problem we recommend correcting the subfloor.

Note: Do not install on a Sandy or soft surface or in areas where there may be humidity.
b) Humidity
The subfloor always transmits humidity, especially that in direct contact with the soil (ground floors).
  • To evaluate the humidity, cut several pieces of plastic (polyethylene) of 50 x 50 cm;
  • Fasten them with adhesive tape in several areas of the subfloor and observe after 48 hours;
  • Raise the edge of each piece of plastic. If water runs, and there are marks of condensation or darkening of the subfloor, it indicates problems of humidity, preventing the installation of the Eucafloor Vinyl Flooring;
  • To install the Eucafloor Vinyl Flooring, the maximum humidity of the subfloor must be 2.5% as per the CM moisture test (calcium carbide method);
  • Whatever the subfloor, it must always be waterproofed, even and leveled.

REMARK: Always hire a trained and skilled labor. For further information please contact our local distributor.

2. Inappropriate bases for installatio

  • Burnt cement: in this case it should be removed and a new underlayment should be made;
  • Any type of wood (wood flooring blocks, boards, parquet, laminate flooring, wood or textile carpet, etc.);
  • Stones or ceramic floors with grouts exceeding 3 mm.

Note: All the sub-floors not recommended for installation must be removed and a new underlayment must be prepared with a mortar in the proportion of 3:1 (cement and sand respectively), at least 2 cm thick.

REMARK: Always hire a trained and skilled labor. For further information please contact our local distributor.

The Eucafloor Vinyl Flooring has the advantages of beauty, durability and great practicality, which facilitates its day-to-day maintenance. As its surface is not porous, it does not allow the proliferation of fungi and bacteria and it is very simple to preserve and clean. Just use a broom with soft bristles, or a cloth soaked in a solution of water and neutral detergent, or a water mop. Use the least water possible.

Special care:

  • Never use abrasive material, of the soap type, an abrasive or steel sponge, as these products can cause damage;
  • Do not use wax, as they cause a fatty film to form on the floor surface, making cleaning difficult;
  • Do not use oil-by products or solvents in the cleaning or for the possible removal of stains;
  • Never expose the floor to an excessive quantity of water or any other liquid or let them remain on the floor.

First Cleaning:

For the total cure of the adhesive used in the installation, the first cleaning should only be performed 5 days after the installation:

  • For the total cure of the adhesive used in the installation, the first cleaning should only be performed 5 days after the installation:
  • With a broom with soft bristles remove all the dirt from the floor and straight afterwards use the water mop or a cloth soaked in a solution of water and neutral detergent. Use the least water possible;
  • Use protective felt for the legs of tables, chairs and other furniture to avoid damaging the floor;
  • Use doormats at the entrance doors to collect dirt and possible particles of stone and sand retained in the soles of shoes to avoid damage;
  • It is mandatory to use chairs with polyurethane casters. Any other type of caster will damage the floor.
