What do floating flooring services include?

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: 

Materials and tools

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.

Preparing the floor and planks

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.  

Installing the planks

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. 

Reinstalling the skirting board

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.

Need a small portion of floating floors lifted and replaced. The lounge has already been lifted just needed to be installed. The reason for the lounge needing to be lifted is because I removed an old mantle which I did not need anymore. The portion in the hallway received some water damage and some boards warping in neighbouring room. The picture with the yellow circle shows the area where the boards have lifted. I have 8 full size extra boards. And about a dozen half cuts.

Toan was amazing. Very professional and punctual. He helped repair my timber floor boards. Would highly recommend his work. He did a great job 👍🏻
