Since this floor floats, can you use an electric floor warming mat like SunTouch under these floors?

Answer: 
I do not think vinyl is a candidate for under floor heating. It is unforgiving for uneven underlayment. Ridges will show up. Also applying heat will cause it to relax and form to the underlayment. Best to use tile or engineered wood.

Answer: 
We asked the same question and the associate at the Home Depot store called both the heating mat company and the flooring company and asked each of them while I was there. We found you can use the heating mat with the TrafficMaster Allure, by embedding the mat in at least 1/4" on a leveling compound, before installing the flooring.

Answer: 
I would think this would not be advisable. The manufacturer suggests using a blo dryer to soften the adhesive if you need to replace a panel. I would think the heat from a heat warming mat might soften the adhesive enough to make the panels slip or separate.

Answer: 
Greetings from SC,
Not knowing what temperatures you expect to generate with this warming mat, I would be reluctant to add any heat to a vinyl floor. The floor "floats" in that it is not directly secured to the subfloor, each piece is glued to itself, adding heat may compromise the adhesive and with expansion and contraction the floor as well. Radiant warming devices are usually applied beneath floors

I spilled paint on some of my planks a day after installation, and used a product called CeramaBryte that came with my glasstop cook stove. It worked like a champ, left no scratches, got the paint up fine without a trace (it was a lot of paint!) Be sure to use the non-abrasive pads recommended with the CeramaBryte, I did. I might try baking soda on an extra uninstalled plank to see how that works for food spills, etc. Read Less

Answer: 
Hi Florida Girl,
Any spills we've encountered clean up easily with soap and water. We haven't had any scuff marks to deal with, but being in the cleaning business, I would suggest a dry not too abrasive sponge, place it under the toes of your shoe and rub like an eraser. I believe Mr. Clean makes a product like this. Just don't use anything too abrasive, this isn't ceramic tile.

Answer: 
If you are looking for a clean, modern look, I think white European style baseboards beautifully enhance the dark lisbon flooring. HD carries a number of molding options that would also work but if you are handy with a saw, hammer and paint brush. European style baseboards are super easy and inexpensive to DIY.

Hey there backsplash,
For putting this product on the wall, you'd be best to use a fastener/adhesive combo. Use small finishing nails to hold the product up and stay hidden, and a Paneling and Moulding adhesive to keep it stuck to the wall.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best flooring for looking great and cleaning up easily! We used this flooring in our previous home and decided to use it in 2 rooms in our new location. it is simple to install unlike other flooring and looks great! I do suggest when cleaning it you wash an area and then using a bath towel dry that area before moving one. This stops water spots and lets the beauty shine through. I added a photo of the kitchen ... looks nice eh? December 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TrafficMASTER Allure 6 in. x 36 in. Chandler Cork Dark Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring (24 sq. ft. / case) Easy to install but you must be sure to have a very clean area because the adhesive area is not protected by a wax paper strip. Debris gets attracted to the adhesive once it is out of the box. Once the pieces are put together it is impossible to pull apart without damaging the flooring. The mat finish is nice but when putting back appliances the finish is marred by the sliding of the appliances even with using furniture sliders. The look is very good regardless. Cleaning is very easy and the feel of the product on bare feet is nice. It also insulates the floor somewhat. I put it over tile and have noticed the floor is warmer. I would use this product again without reservation but would have help in moving the appliances to mitigate the marring potential. I expect the marring will dissipate over time with wear of the flooring. Overall an excellent product that looks great in my condo's kitchen. Fairly easy for one person to install. Be sure to get at least 10% more flooring as a contingency for installation errors. April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product was very easy to install. Just be sure to follow the installation instructions closely. We prepared the underlayment a few days before the actual installation. We used a self-leveling compound over the underlayment to compensate for some floor low spots and seams. We ordered the flooring online with free shipping and it was delivered promptly and we put the flooring in the room to accumulate it before installing. We had no problems with the installation as we didn't hurry putting the flooring down. We are very pleased with the outcome and appearance of the product. We are going to purchase additional flooring for another room in the near future. We had previously used the same product in another room and had good results as well. January 29, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice looking and reasonable tough flooring. the box says easiest floor ever, in my years of working as a contractor I have laid a number of floors over the years (not a floor contractor but a general), if your room is a simple rectangular or square room it is simple, but if it is a tee shaped or working through a door way, it can be a different story, as the flooring is designed to work in one direction and if you have to work backwards by slipping the strip under the floor laying it is not as easy, they need accessory that is a extra glue strip so one can work both directions, I like the toughness of the product the look is not as natural as hope for, still looks like printed on materiel not real, but not bad, one more tip I will give use a sheet of the separator paper in the lap on a tough line up and once lined up remove paper and stick, March 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for bathrooms! I installed this flooring over existing vinyl 5 months ago. I don't have much DIY experience. It was an easy install, looks great and has held up very well in my bathroom. Water gets dripped on it daily and hasn't caused any issues. (I caulked a thin line between the tub and the flooring.) Make sure you do not cut planks shorter than the recommended minimum. I did install one shorter plank and I think it has very slightly separated (maybe 1/8") from the one next to it. No one else can see it though, even if I point it out. August 29, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by What a difference a few hours makes! This is great stuff. A friend found this for their project and turned me on to it and I decided I had to now do mine. The application was in my basement that has a storage area and combined laundry/bath. While I don't have any water issues in the basement (knock on wood) it's nice to know that this product can endure just in case. And of course with the laundry/bath there is always water around. I had the product laid by guys who have done other tile and carpet work for me, but watching them I'm sure I could have done it to as I'm OK with some DYI, but it was nice for them to just do it. My space is about 300 sf and they were done in 4 hours, including taking out/reinstalling the toilet and disconnecting/connecting washer/dryer. It's been about 3 weeks now and it's wearing well, except a little scuffing when the refrigerator was moved, which is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5, but it's not particularly noticeable. Here are some before/after pics. Stays so much cleaner and inviting than the old concrete floor, which we went straight over after sweeping/moping. So easy. March 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Above Average DIY, Don't Compare to Hardwood We bought this product because we live an active Indoor/Outdoor lifestyle in Florida, with toddlers and a husband who is sometimes in a wheelchair. We needed clean, bare, resilient floors, and were under a tight schedule for installation. We had this installed by professionals. 80% of the floor looks better than expected, very fluid, flush, no lines, holds up great and great appearance. 10-20% has partial edges not flush, bumps where two panels went together, larger than uniform crevices at joints. While these were professional floor installers, I'm not sure how much of this is due to product itself and how much is due to installation pitfalls. They claimed this was harder to lay than other plank and tile flooring products; but I've had other contractors who are not flooring specialists tell me they've done dozens of these floors and it was definitely an installation problem, not the product. With that said, two of the installers went out to buy the exact same flooring for their own homes, they were so impressed with the quality and appearance. Outcome: Much better than expected based on the quality and overall appearance of the product itself; I would just caution anyone that there may be installation pitfalls that leave your floor in some erroneous spots looking like vinyl DIY versus the authentic look of hardwood or cork floors. Follow online videos/instructions and go slow with laying each plank carefully. September 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Allure Flooring The appearance of the "planks" is very nice. Installation went quite well...and I did go to the length of renting a floor roller, and would recommend if you're installing. My son helped, and I think the job went much smoother with two people handling the pliable pieces as it was placed. You will see the seams, period. But you won't have spent 4x the investment on hardwood installed. July 29, 2015
