Stress Free Holiday Cleaning

Every year during the holiday season, my family visits my home. Like many people, I become frantic about beautifully decorating my home. After the tree is put up, I am always left with strewn boxes and tree needles all over the floor. Because I want everything to look perfect, I usually clean for days after decorating. This activity usually leaves me cheerless by the time my family arrives. This year, I realized that I don’t have to do this never ending chore on my own. By hiring a professional cleaning service, I can beautify my home without unnecessary stress. On this blog, you will learn about the benefits of hiring a cleaning service to help you during the holidays. Enjoy this holiday season without the work!

Want To Put A Sheet Of Vinyl Flooring In A Bathroom? Let This Guide Help

If you're remodeling a bathroom and you're considering flooring options, sheet vinyl is a good choice. This type of flooring is relatively low maintenance and it's easy to install. This guide demonstrates the steps to take to lay a sheet of vinyl flooring in a room over the top of existing flooring.

Step 1: Measure the Room

Use a measuring tape to obtain the length and width of the room.

Step 2: Purchase Your Supplies

Take the measurements to the home improvement store and ask the associate to help you pick out the vinyl. When you've settled on one you like, ask them to cut it to size. Note: The sheet will be a little bigger than your room to allow for mistakes in measuring. Other supplies you'll need include:

  • pry bar
  • vinyl adhesive
  • notched trowel
  • floor roller
  • finishing nails
  • hammer
  • two friends

Step 3: Take Off the Baseboards

Place the pry bar between the baseboard and the wall. Push it gently toward the wall until the baseboard pops loose. Do this all the way around the perimeter of the room. Hint: For a better fit, and less cutting of the vinyl, follow this same step for the door trim.

Caution: Try to take the baseboards and trim off in one piece so you don't have the added expense of buying new ones.

Step 4: Begin Laying the Vinyl Adhesive

Bring in the roll of vinyl and set it down near the end of the room. Apply the vinyl adhesive, according to the manufacturer's directions using the notched trowel. Place the adhesive all down the length of the wall.

Step 5: Lay the Vinyl Sheet

Holding one end of the roll of vinyl, ask a friend to hold the center of the roll and another friend to hold the other end of the roll. Place the end of the sheet on the floor against the wall and press the vinyl down. The three of you should do this at the same time so that the roll is even.

Continue applying adhesive and setting the vinyl throughout the room. When you get to the end of the roll, cut off the extra vinyl with a utility knife and secure the end to the floor.

Step 6: Roll the Floor

Run over the floor with the floor roller to remove bubbles and other imperfections.

Step 7: Reattach the Baseboard and Trim

Set the baseboards and trim up in their original spots. Hammer them in place with the finishing nails.

Call a flooring professional, like Grover's Interiors Inc, to help you remove tile before you set the vinyl sheet if you don't want to place it over the existing floor. Follow the care instructions that come with your vinyl sheet so that it will last for years to come.
