It seems all the carpet manufacturers are going to some sort of dot system for adhesive. This is the result of the big issue back in the early 90s where we had huge lawsuits about the odor carpet adhesive left in a building. If it is a decent product (carpet tile) HWE should not have any bad effects on a carpet tile. This keeps in mind that you are using a product that has a pH under 10.
Not if the tiles are installed properly. Some facility managers are concerned about access floors because all their computer and phone wires are under the tiles. Normally I would pull 2 tiles and place a Kleenex under the area where the tiles meet and then clean. Clean over the tiles then pull them back and pull out the dry Kleenex.When cleaning with HWE, there isn't any concern about water getting under the carpet tile at the seams?
If laminate flooring had stopped with Pergo laminate would have been just fine. It is when every manufacturer tried to make it cheaper that the problems began. I am hoping the same thing doesn't happen with LVT. But with most of it coming from China and the tariffs beginning I am nervous.Cleaning the newer types of vinyl plank flooring is easy..
its the older pergo type floors that are hard to tell if they are waterproof or not... always can be wiped wet of course but actually rinsing them with a wand or using a hydroforce some can not take the moisture well if it gets down in between planks.
on older ones how do you tell if they are waterproof enough?
When I installed mine I wanted to be sure so I took scrap pieces and soaked them in water, no damage.
Hmmm...disasters Coming out of China could be a good thing for the carpet industry as a whole.If laminate flooring had stopped with Pergo laminate would have been just fine.

I here Bane was one of a kind fella, gentleman and a scholar and an ole timer with a right spirit that could sell snow to eskimos.I'm still very grateful for the many mill tour Bane arranged back then, and for meeting people like Bill Yeadon early in our careers.
I have a couple squeegee wands and they work better than any glided wand probably due to some modifications.wouldnt a squeege wand work better?
