You will need
- – linoleum;
- – flat and jagged spatulas;
- – metal ruler;
- construction knife;
- – adhesive tape.
Prepare the base on which will be laid linoleum. Clean it from debris and dust, let dry and remove irregularities. Stone (ceramic tile, sand cement screed) align with putty and programsuite. In a wooden base (old parquet, sexual Board, plywood, chipboard) remove cracks and gaps, strengthen loose items. It is not recommended to lay linoleum on the painted surface or old linoleum. As a primer you can use linoleum glue, diluted half related to this type of glue solvent.
Cutting linoleum with a margin of 5-10 cm in length and width of the room, do not forget about the combination of the figure. Lay the sliced strips on the floor and put them in this position for a day, to cover lined on the floor.
Lay the strip of linoleum in the order in which they are to be glued. Observing the precision, cut the linoleum around the perimeter of the room, leaving a gap between its edge and the wall is about 5 mm.
Pruning along the walls make using a knife and metal ruler, applying the latter to the linoleum parallel to the wall. External and internal corners secure the cover to the floor at the point of the angle and draw from her slit to the corner of the workpiece. Then press the linoleum to the sides of the angle and trim the excess.
At the junction superimposed strips to each other with a slight overlap and cut the linoleum in the zone of overlap on the line. Then remove the cut edges and align the edges. This method of cutting ensures a backlash-free joint.
After pruning, seal the joints between the strips of adhesive tape. This operation will not allow them to move relative to each other in the subsequent work. Roll up one side of the linoleum carpet, exposing about half of the room. Linoleum should not move relative to the floor.
Using the spatula, apply on the exposed surface of the adhesive layer. All the features work with the adhesive composition described in the attached instructions. Read it before work.
Roll the wrapped part to its original position while pressing the or precative the linoleum on the floor in the direction from the center to the edges of the room. Avoid the formation of bubbles and folds.
Roll up the opposite side of the linoleum carpet and repeat all operations on the label cover the same way as it did in the previous steps.
Check the entire surface of the room for the presence of bubbles and folds. When detected, roll coating, squeezing out the air in the direction of the edges. Qualitatively glued linoleum must lie absolutely flat, without folds and swellings. To operate the coating only after the glue dries. This parameter must be specified in the instructions to the glue.
When buying glue, note its compatibility with the material used for the coating. Various types of linoleum are different from each other by material of the coating and the substrate – if it's there. Purchased the glue must be compatible with them.
