Floating flooring services include the materials, tools, and actual legwork of fitting your floors. In some cases, you can have a Tasker purchase the planks or sheets on your behalf. Or, you can buy these yourself and book a Tasker to take care of the installation. If you’d like some help moving the furniture before and after the fitting, they may be able to do this, too.
Though the exact details may vary depending on the Tasker you book, here’s what you can expect when you request a floorer via Airtasker:
Your floorer arrives with the complete materials and tools necessary for installing your floating floors. These include shims, tape measure, a hammer, tapping block or pull bar, a circular saw or another power saw, a utility knife, trim saw, flat pry bar, wide putty knife, a combination square, and a pencil.
If you requested them to purchase the flooring for you, your hired specialist would get snap-together flooring, foam or cork underlayment, and tape. Not sure what colour or width of planks to choose for your room? You can consult an interior designer before redoing your floors.
Your floorer starts by leaving the planks in the room for two days so they can acclimate to the humidity. Thus, it’s advisable that you get your flooring in advance. Once the planks are ready, your floorer removes the skirting boards and cuts the line between the trim and the wall to prevent the paint from cracking. They’ll remove the debris, roll out the underlayment, then cut the underlayment with a utility knife. After this, they’ll butt the sides of the pieces together and tape up the joints.
Next, your floorer starts to lay out the planks and cuts them to size. Then, they’ll install the first row of planks. Your specialist will leave 1/4-inch spaces after every foot to allow the planks some room to expand. When it comes to the succeeding rows of planks, they’ll snap them into the first row, close up gaps, and offset joints by at least 3 inches.
Once they reach the last row, your floorer sets shims against the wall, measures the width in several places, then cuts the planks to size. They may use a pull bar to ensure a tight fit in this row.
Once you and your floorer are happy with the flooring, they’ll reinstall the skirting boards and seal all exposed edges. Sealing is especially important in bathrooms and utility rooms so moisture can’t get underneath the boards.

I have 35 - 40 sq m of hybrid laminate floating floorboards (Kimberley range from National Tiles) to lay in one large living area and 2 small areas (hallway and laundry) in my home in Lara, Vic ASAP. There is also a small section of cork tiles (6 - 7 sq m) to be pulled up - I started doing it myself but I have arthritis in my hands and the job was aggravating it. Money is really tight so I may end up having to suck it up and do it myself depending on what quotes come in at but OMG I really don't want to, lol!! (If you're local maybe we can do a deal - like give me a REALLY CHEAP quote and I'll give you a couple of house cleans or some ironing or something?) Lol, I'm really wanting to get out of doing this floor myself because I know it will take me 10 times longer than it will take someone with some skills and the right tools. Thanks for reading :-)
Steve is a lovely guy, very genuine and professional, and did a brilliant job! He obviously takes.peide in his work and it shows. Will definitely be using him again. Highly recommend!
