The subfloor lies beneath the top surface flooring and is an important consideration for proper installation.
Prior to installation, you’ll want to make sure your subfloor is clean of debris, level, dry and sturdy. That way, you can minimize allergens, dust, mold and mildew that can form when a subfloor is not properly prepared.
Typically, the preferred subfloor for each installation is found within the installation guide and can vary from one flooring retailer to another. Whether carpet, wood or tile installation, a properly kept subfloor is critical to the longevity of any flooring project.
