I would love to install this product in my master closet, but the door to the crawlspace is in the middle of the closet. Can I install the floor, cut out around the door, and glue it on the door to create a near seamless effect?

How level do I need to have concrete basement floor? It is smooth surface but end to end might have slight rise and fall. Was not sure if I need to attempt to use a leveler or maybe put down a foam underlayment to even out.

Thank you for your question. Install proper floor protectors (nylon or felt) on all furniture legs used on resilient flooring. Protectors will allow chairs to move easily over the floor without
scuffing or scratching (felt protectors can pick up small grit and still cause slight abrasions). Clean
protectors on a regular basis to remove any grit that may have become embedded on the bottom of the furniture leg. For any swiveled type office chairs and other rolling furniture, please install
2" wide non-staining flat casters. Do not use rubber casters. Please note that this pattern is warrantied for residential use only.
