When choosing a floor covering care should always be taken to ensure the product you would like is suitable for the area as there is many factors to take into consideration like the condition of the subfloor, If the area has a high level of moisture. We would recommend for satisfactory performance the floor must be free from dust and debris prior to installation, the surface must be cleaned of all foreign material that may be detrimental to the adhesion of the flooring. If patching or levelling is required a smoothing compound should be used to even out any undulations of a concrete floor or if you are installing your floor covering over a timber sub floor it may require a plywood underlayment to be installed before the installation of your new floor covering.
