Question

How do I remove slide marks from felt covered furniture feet?

Asked by
carl
locust grove, VA
about 6 in. x 36 in. Tradition Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring (24 sq. ft. / case) on
May 18, 2015
Our brand new plank flooring was just laid and furniture with felt applied to all legs are leaving trail marks when moved to attach the quarter round to the base board. I have tried water/mild soap and Allure 1-Step as directed to remove these trail marks with no results. The natural light coming in doors and windows highlights these trail marks making them very noticeable. The plank flooring was installed (by professionals) for the entire first floor,1400 sq. ft., and the trail marks are in the middle of the great room so far. Please help.

Thank you for purchasing Allure Cherry Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring. To replace a damaged plank, hold a hair dryer or heat gun about 6”-8” away from the outside of the damaged plank along the Grip Strip edge for about 45 seconds to 1 minute. Make sure you have a sharp utility knife. Cut a slot in the center of the tile to be removed. Then use a putty knife to pry up the damaged plank.

Thank you for your interest in the TrafficMaster Allure resilient vinyl plank flooring in Iron Wood. Allure is water resistant and will withstand holding water for short periods of time if the product is installed properly. Allure is not flood proof! allure is not meant as water proofing material nor a solution for moisture. Moisture intrusion is a totally different situation that can arise with new and old concrete that exhibits very high levels of hydrostatic pressure in combination with very high levels of alkalinity. This combination provides a substance that is highly corrosive. No floor covering including allure can withstand the long term corrosive nature of this chemical. Hydrostatic pressure exceeding 8 lbs using the calcium chloride test method and/or a P.H test indicates alkalinity levels in excess of 9, steps must be taken to separate allure from the source of the corrosive effect of this chemical. Excessive moisture in the subfloor can cause mold and mildew and other moisture related issues including, but not limited to, trapping of the moisture emissions under allure. Under these circumstances the concrete needs to be treated with a floor sealer that seals the concrete under the 8 lbs. or a moisture/ vapor barrier (6 mil poly) is installed. This is necessary to avoid the corrosive effects. Newly poured concrete floors must cure for a minimum of 90 days. It is the responsibility of the home owner and the installer to make sure that any moisture or alkalinity issues are resolved prior to installing allure.

Allure flooring products as manufactured do not emit anything harmful into the air. Amber Ash Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring is FloorScore certified by SCS Global Services. FloorScore® is a universally recognized low VOC certification program which uses an independent certifier, Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), to determine whether hard surface flooring products meet the California health-based low VOC requirements for indoor air quality. This testing is based on small environmental chamber VOC testing and recognized indoor air quality modeling under the California Section 01350 specification. This specification includes health-based Chronic Exposure Levels (CREL) concentrations established by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment and building modeling parameters developed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA). FloorScore® certifies that hard surface flooring products do not exceed one-half of the allowable CREL concentration limits. Thus, FloorScore® builds a substantial VOC safety margin into the program. Measured Concentration of Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC) for Trafficmaster Allure grip-strip products is less than/equal to 0.5 mg/m3 (in compliance with CDPH/EHLB Standard Method v.1.1-2010). You can view the FloorScore Certificate here: http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/d5/d55f6ea9-fdf6-4bbd-8065-e6dca8e25724.pdf

This flooring should not be installed in any area where the temperature is allowed to fluctuate below 55 degrees or above 85 degrees. Prolonged exposure to sunlight, heat or cold will cause the planks to buckle and void the warranty. The 18-inch distance from the wood stove may not be sufficient to avoid high temperatures. Since the wood stove is your primary heating source, you must also be careful not to let the temperature drop below 55 degrees.

We are considering installing this over our concrete slab throughout our downstairs. We will have a small workout area that would have this flooring as well. We would put another hard rubber tile type of flooring over the vinyl flooring in the area, but are wondering how this flooring would hold up if heavy weights were dropped on it repeatedly (up to, say, 350 lbs). Is it durable enough to be used in this area or should we go with a different type of flooring here? Thank you.

I am not a professional but I would say this product would work wonders in a high traffic area, we chose it for our kitchen. You definitely don't need to be a professional to install it either. With a box cutter and needle nose pliers you would be able to put this flooring in by yourself. When we got to the end of the row we used a box cutter and scored the area needing to be cut off, by bending the floor it snapped off the ends and we were ready to go. in areas where we had to cut a small square piece off needle nose pliers worked wonders so no need to buy fancy tools. If you read the reviews mine should be posting soon but I attached my completed floor for you to see as well!
