Think again if you believe luxury vinyl flooring doesn’t need acclimation. It is 100% waterproof, but the material is also somewhat porous.
All about the “why’s”
The product has microscopic air holes. They can distort the shape if the air is humid or excessively dry. This is especially so if the storage facility has a different climate than your house.
The product should sit for 48 hours in the room in which it’s to be installed. Thevinyl plank flooring pieces or tile-sized squares can either lay side-by-side on the floor or stay in an opened box.
The room should be climate controlled, with a temperature ranging between 59-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
There should be no excessive air conditioning or heat.
If you have any questions, seek the advice of a flooring professional. They can also advise you about keeping your home at appropriate humidity levels.
Floating floors and acclimation
Luxury vinyl flooring is often installed via the floating floor technique. LVT flooring is for all forms, whether vinyl plank or the tile mimics. Pieces click, mat, and hover over the subfloor without adhesives.
A floating floor is stable, but it isn't permanently affixed. That means any movement can affect balance and, in turn, both aesthetics and performance. We won't take that chance with your investment!
