Wet areas would include but are not limited to: bathrooms, powder rooms, kitchens, mud rooms, foyers, and laundry rooms. Uniclic® flooring panels, nor the accessories are recommended for extreme humidity applications such as in saunas or swimming pool areas.
Since prolonged water exposure could damage your flooring, the following installation recommendations should be closely followed:
An expansion area of 5/16" – 3/8" must be provided around all vertical obstructions including walls, permanent cabinets, pipes etc.
All perimeter expansion areas must be completely filled in with a sealant. When applying sealant, it is helpful to first apply a strip of masking tape parallel to and approximately 1/32" from the edge. Then fill the expansion area with sealant, remove excess with a plastic scraper or putty knife, and remove tape. Let dry for 24 hours before exposure to water.
Maximum 26 ft. (8 meter) lengths can be installed without a transition joint. Under each entrance door of the room, a transition joint must be installed.
Wipe up spills immediately. Do not allow liquids to stand on your floor or stay in contact with any Uniclic® accessory.
