Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Installation Guide

The Quickstep Alpha CIRO flooring installation guide provides detailed step-by-step instructions to ensure a smooth and successful installation of your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring. Follow these guidelines carefully to achieve optimal results and enjoy the benefits of your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring for years to come:

  1. Preparation: Before beginning the installation of your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring, it’s essential to prepare the subfloor properly. Ensure that the subfloor is clean, dry, and flat. Remove any existing flooring materials and thoroughly clean the subfloor to eliminate dust, debris, and adhesive residues. Take the time to inspect the subfloor for any uneven areas or imperfections and address them as needed to create a smooth and level surface for your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl installation.
  2. Acclimation: Allow the Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring to acclimate to the room’s temperature and humidity conditions for at least 48 hours before installation. Store the flooring boxes flat in the installation area, with adequate spacing between them to allow for proper air circulation. This acclimation period helps to minimise the risk of expansion or contraction of the flooring planks or tiles after installation, ensuring a more stable and long-lasting result.
  3. Underlayment: Install an appropriate underlayment over the subfloor to provide additional cushioning, sound absorption, and moisture protection for your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring. Choose an underlayment that is compatible with vinyl flooring and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for installation instructions.
    ** Please note that Alpha Vinyl products with the letter “ U “ in the code have built-in underlay and no additional underlay is required.
  4. Layout: Plan the layout of your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring, taking into account the room’s dimensions, layout, and any architectural features. Begin the installation from the longest, straightest wall in the room, working towards the opposite wall. Consider the placement of doorways, cabinets, and other obstacles, and adjust the layout accordingly to ensure a balanced and visually appealing result.
  5. Cutting: Use a utility knife or a vinyl cutter to accurately cut the Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring planks or tiles to size as needed to fit around obstacles, corners, and doorways. Take precise measurements and make clean, straight cuts to ensure a seamless and professional-looking installation. Proper cutting and fitting of the flooring pieces are essential for achieving a tight and secure installation that will withstand the test of time.
  6. Installation: Depending on the chosen installation method (e.g., floating, glue-down, or click-lock), follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. For floating installations, interlock the Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring planks or tiles using the appropriate locking mechanism. For glue-down installations, apply adhesive to the subfloor according to the manufacturer’s guidelines and press the flooring pieces firmly into place. For click-lock installations, simply snap the planks or tiles together until they lock into position.
    ** Please note although a plan for the future Alpha Vinyl is currently ONLY available as a click product.
  7. Seaming: When installing multiple rows of Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring, ensure proper alignment and tight seams between the planks or tiles. Use spacers to maintain consistent spacing along the edges and between rows, and stagger the end joints for a more natural appearance. Proper seaming is crucial for achieving a cohesive and visually appealing result that will enhance the overall aesthetic of the room.
  8. Trimming: Install matching transition strips, mouldings, or trim pieces as needed to provide a finished look and to cover expansion gaps around the perimeter of the room, doorways, and transitions to other flooring surfaces. Trim pieces help to create a seamless transition between different areas of the room and add a polished finishing touch to your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring installation.
  9. Finishing Touches: Once the installation is complete, thoroughly clean the Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring to remove any dust, debris, or adhesive residues. Inspect the entire installation for any visible defects, gaps, or loose planks, and make any necessary adjustments or repairs. Take the time to review the installation and ensure that everything is in place and looking its best before moving on to the final step.
  10. Maintenance: After installation, follow the recommended cleaning and maintenance guidelines provided by Quickstep Alpha CIRO flooring to keep your flooring looking its best. Use a damp mop or a pH-neutral vinyl floor cleaner to remove dirt and maintain its appearance and performance over time. Regular maintenance will help to preserve the beauty and longevity of your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring for years to come, allowing you to enjoy its benefits and appearance for well over the 20-year heavy domestic warranty.
Quickstep Alpha Vinyl Maintenance Guide

Ensure your Quickstep Alpha CIRO flooring maintains its pristine appearance and durability with these comprehensive cleaning and maintenance guidelines:

  1. Regular Cleaning: Regularly sweep or vacuum your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring regularly to remove loose dirt, dust, and debris. A soft-bristled broom or a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment is ideal for gently lifting particles without scratching the surface of your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl.
  2. Mopping: For a deeper clean, damp mop the floor using a mild cleaning solution specifically formulated for vinyl flooring. Dilute the cleaner according to the manufacturer’s instructions and avoid using abrasive cleaners or harsh chemicals that could potentially damage the finish of your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl.
  3. Spill Cleanup: Accidents happen, so it’s essential to promptly wipe up spills and splatters using a damp cloth or mop. Avoid letting liquids sit on the floor for an extended period, as this can lead to staining or damage to your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl.
  4. Avoid Excess Water: While Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring is designed to be water-resistant, it’s crucial to avoid excessive moisture. When mopping, wring out the mop thoroughly to ensure it’s damp rather than soaking wet. Immediately dry any excess water with a clean, dry cloth to prevent moisture from seeping into the seams or edges of your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl.
  5. Protective Pads: Prevent scratches and dents by placing felt or rubber pads under furniture legs. This simple precaution will help preserve the surface of your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring, ensuring it remains smooth and free from damage. Be mindful when moving heavy furniture to avoid dragging it across the floor, as this can cause scratching over time.
  6. Avoid Sharp Objects: Protect your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring from scratches and gouges by refraining from walking on it with sharp or abrasive objects such as high heels or pet claws. Consider placing doormats at entryways to trap dirt and debris before it has a chance to reach your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring, minimising the risk of damage.
  7. Sunlight Protection: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading and discolouration of your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring over time. To preserve its vibrant appearance, consider using curtains, blinds, or UV-blocking window films to shield your flooring from harsh sunlight, particularly in areas with large windows or glass doors. This is true of any brand of floor covering so it should not just be associated with Alpha Vinyl.
  8. Avoid Wax or Polish: Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring comes with a factory-applied protective layer, eliminating the need for waxing or polishing. Using wax or polish can leave a dull residue or even damage the finish of your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl. Stick to gentle cleaning methods to maintain its natural sheen and appearance.
  9. Routine Maintenance: Keep your Quickstep Alpha Vinyl flooring looking its best by conducting regular inspections for signs of damage or wear. Replace any damaged planks or tiles promptly to maintain the integrity and beauty of your flooring, ensuring it continues to enhance your space for years to come.

By following these comprehensive cleaning and maintenance guidelines, you can ensure that your Quickstep Alpha CIRO flooring remains not only beautiful and resilient but also a long-lasting investment in the aesthetic and functionality of your home or commercial space.
