Installing rubber matting

Posted May 8, 2014 by johnybfre

Rubber matting is a popular choice among homeowners and commercial users who look for a soft solution to cover different floor areas. Installing rubber mats is easy if you address the right professional.

Installing rubber matting is an operation similar to installing other types of floors, with the mention that this usually takes less time. The only thing that requires some more minutes is the cutting of various rubber mats that need to cover curved floor areas or other areas that present an unusual shape.

The first thing that a homeowner or commercial user who desires to install rubber flooring should do is to contact a reliable team of specialists and let them perform this operation, because only this way he would be able to benefit from a sturdy flooring for many years to come.

At the beginning, specialists remove the existing floor and level it with their tools. While some floors can be placed on top of other floors, when it comes to rubber matting, it is recommended that specialists remove the existing floor.

Rubber mats can be cut directly on the spot or the specialists could come with them already cut at their workshop. Taking into account that cutting rubber slabs or tiles requires some time, the suggestion is to have a number of tiles already cut and bring a larger sheet of rubber that would be eventually cut on site.

Tiles can be cut according to the preferences of their future owner. There is no standard in cutting rubber tiles. They can be cut using a utility knife. Although this operation seems easy, it is easy only in the hands of a specialist.

After removing the existing floor, if any, specialists arrange rubber tiles on the floor and create a certain design, if they are required to do so. At this point, no adhesive is used. The purpose of this operation is to see if there are enough tiles to cover the entire floor surface.

If there are enough rubber tiles to cover the entire floor, specialists spread some adhesive below the tiles and then place them on the floor. It is very important for the specialists to apply pressure on tiles to make sure the adhesive gets attached to the tiles.

In general, an excess of adhesive can be seen between rubber tiles. This can be easily removed with a clean cloth at the end of this procedure, or even during the rubber flooring installation. Rubber tiles need to "relax" after being installed on the floor, so placing furniture or walking on this new flooring surface should wait for at least a day.

Rubber matting is the best choice for those who search for a soft flooring surface that would eliminate respiratory and dust allergies, reduce shoe wear, protect children and adults alike from injury, in case they fall on the floor, and that would last for many years.
