As the popularity of luxury vinyl flooring continues to skyrocket, more and more homes and businesses are contemplating new floors: floors that can truly take on the day. Whether you prefer a plank or a tile, it’s always smart to plan accordingly when preparing for your installation. Although luxury vinyl tends to be much easier to install compared to other hard surface floors, being properly prepared is always best.

When it comes to installing your new luxury vinyl floor, an ounce of prevention definitely applies here. The steps you take after removing your worn, old flooring are critical ones that shouldn’t be skimped on. Here’s what you need to tackle before you or your contractors can begin installation:
First and foremost, a thorough cleaning of your subfloor is extremely important. Removing all traces of debris will allow for a seamless installation. Once your floor fully dries, you’ll also want to take a careful inventory of any irregularities in your subfloor, using a trowel to level out any uneven areas.
