How do I clean and maintain my floor?

Maintaining your floor surface's pristine condition is straightforward.

What tools do I need for the installation?

For the installation of our PVC tiles, the required tools are minimal, ensuring a hassle-free process.

It's always advisable to measure your area accurately in advance to ensure a seamless fit.

Do I have to modify the original floor before laying Floors4garage PVC tiles?

While it's generally sufficient to sweep the floor thoroughly before laying Floors4garage PVC tiles, it's crucial to address any significant irregularities.

How do I finish the floor at the walls and entrance?

When it comes to finishing off the flooring at the walls and entrance, precision is key. Use a sharp utility knife to trim the tile, ensuring you leave an expansion gap of approximately 5 mm from the wall. This space is necessary to allow for any potential expansion and contraction of the tile material due to changes in temperature. To create a smooth and professional-looking transition at the entrance, we highly recommend the use of Floors4Garage ramp tiles. Their sleek design integrates seamlessly with the rest of your flooring, providing both functionality and aesthetic appeal.

Can the floor be used outside?

Although technically feasible, we strongly advise against using our flooring products in an outdoor setting.

This is due to the varying and often harsh weather conditions that could potentially degrade the quality and appearance of the flooring over time.
