(for IICRC: Sub floor
This class reviews manufacture and installation of both
concrete and wood substrates as well as the substrate requirements
and interactions with laminates, resilient, ceramic, stone,
poured coatings, hardwood and carpet floor systems.
Changes in adhesives and floor covering components have
made all floor coverings more substrate-sensitive.
In response, industry experts in laminates, resilient, ceramic,
stone, hardwood and poured floors were all involved in developing
this certification through the IICRC.
Needs this Class
This is for anyone involved with the manufacture, maintenance,
installation, selling, design or inspection of hard surface
What does this class cover
The interaction of the whole floor covering system involves
contributions from adhesives, patching compounds and sealers
to the floor system.
Problems with moisture, movement, contamination, alkalinity,
fastener slippage, maintenance, manufacturing, design, expansion
and contraction, levelness and support are covered from
the bottom up.
Testing, both on-site and in the lab, analysis, documentation
and photography are discussed.
and hands on interaction as much as possible.
