Laying Linoleum Flooring

The linoleum is prepared with oxidizing linseed oil and then mixed with pine resin and some wood flour. The linoleum flooring is an inexpensive solution for house remodeling and it is quite sturdy and resistant. The linoleum flooring is versatile and can resist to moisture. This type of flooring can be used all over the house but it is recommended to be put in the kitchen, bathroom and hallways. The tiles are good to enhance the look of the bathroom floor.

But you can also put it in your bedroom or living room. The linoleum comes in many shapes and colors and you can choose one that looks like wood tiles. Another great thing about the linoleum is the fact that it is very easy to install. You can also be very creative and make something like a mosaic of different colors and shapes. You can mix the tiles and get a distinctive look.

If you are thinking about putting linoleum flooring, then you will require the linoleum, some adhesive, the notched trowel and steel flooring rollers or something that is similar to that.

First of all, you need to check the place where you want to put it. Make sure the floor is clean and has no dirt, dust or debris. Make sure also that the floor has no nails or staples. After checking that, you can put the plywood on it. The plywood is the base for the linoleum flooring. Only after the plywood is in place you can begin with the flooring.

Then you need to find the center of the room and mark it. Cut down the linoleum roll according to the size of you room. Always check the room measurements before cutting any material so that you get it right. Just to be safe, always cut an extra inch on both ways of the linoleum floor. After rolling down the linoleum, put it on the floor and if you find any obstructions, remove them. Then unroll half of it and apply some adhesive.

After getting the adhesive on, slowly place it on the floor and press it there. Repeat the exact process for the rest of the linoleum roll, with gentle moves. Smoothen the linoleum and make sure there are no air bubbles trapped there underneath.

Always smooth the linoleum starting form the center to the margin. Use the floor roller to remove the air bubbles. If you have linoleum tiles, then the process is way much simpler as the pieces are smaller than a whole roll.

Put the adhesive on the individual tiles and press them on the floor. Also start from the center and move towards the walls.

In order to mark the center of the room, choose a wall and then measure the width of the wall and its center too. Do the same with the opposite wall and then run a line to unite the two spots.

This is all you need to know about how to get linoleum flooring.
