Yes, acclimation is necessary with luxury vinyl flooring

Both luxury vinyl tile and plank need to go through the acclimation process. It's the best way to achieve results you can live with for years to come.

These floors feature exceptional benefits, and you're sure to make the most of them. And they're a perfect addition to every room in your home.

What is acclimation?

Acclimation is the process that causes the equalization of humidity. This ensures you won't worry about warping, peeling, or buckling.

Since there are tiny air pockets in the flooring, they can be susceptible to humidity. But even temperature changes can affect LVT flooring from room to room.

How long does acclimation take?

For most luxury vinyl circumstances, acclimation takes about 72 hours. Once you select a specific product, we'll give you an exact estimate.

Once the process is complete, installation can continue as normal. The fast and easy installation even leaves you to walk on your floors almost immediately.

How do you acclimate the flooring?

The best way to acclimate these floors is to bring them into the installation area. If you stack them, do so in a way that there's breathing room between boxes.

Make sure the boxes of LVP are open and have ample airflow between each set. Then run your HVAC as you would under normal circumstances for the best results.
