For Decorative Accent Rugs

  • Unroll the flooring in the room and allow it to relax. Material must be lying flat before fitting.
  • Cut flooring to the desired rug or mat size and enjoy your new rug!

For Permanent or Glueless Installation Over Existing Resilient Flooring

  • Unroll the flooring in the room and allow it to relax. Material must be lying flat before fitting.
  • Maintain room temperature, flooring and adhesive between 65° F and 85˚ F for 48 hours before, during and after installation.
  • Leave a 1/4” space between flooring and all verticals (i.e. walls, cabinets, pipes, etc.). When trimming floor, place a small piece of 1/4” plywood between the wall and back of flooring to insure proper gap is achieved.
  • Install wood moldings or cove base around the perimeter to cover the 1/4” space. Do not nail mouldings through the flooring - nail into the wall.
  • Maintain post-installation room temperature between 55º F and 100º F with a relative humidity between 40% and 70%.
  • Please refer to the Tarkett website for installation instructions for glueless installations over other subfloors
  • Can be fully adhered with Tarkett QBond-One adhesive. Refer to the Tarkett website for full installation instructions

Basic Care

  • Repeated exposure to direct sunlight may cause fading or discoloration. Close drapes or blinds to block direct sunlight during peak hours.
  • If your rug gets wet, be sure to dry under the mat to prevent mildew growth.
  • High heeled shoes can cause permanent damage to many types of resilient flooring, including tile and plank.
  • Moving furniture and appliances may cause scratches or indentations in your new floor. Make sure furniture and appliances are equipped with proper, non-staining rests, glides or casters.
  • Use proper rests, glides and casters on furniture. Small, narrow furniture rests should be replaced with wider, smooth, non-staining, protective, load-bearing devices (at least 1" square bearing surface).
