is this to be installed primarily over concrete? Or is over linoleum ok? What is the thickness of the pad?
Asked by: cR
Hello cR: DMX 1-Step has been designed to be installed directly on top of your concrete floor. The dimples are 8mm in height with 1mm of foam on the dimpled (white) side. Please ensure that the floors are level up to 1/8" over 10 feet, prior to installation. Customer Care DMX

Do I need the underpayment if I install vinyl floor in the basement?

Asked by: Katrina
After reading tremendous articles about basement. I would suggest you purchase a underlayment. Your basement has a cement floor which is very porous. With that being said the moisture from the soil will breathe through your cement and will create mold if you don't let it breathe and give it space to dry. What the underlayment allows is that moisture to escape and dry underneath your floor. I use this DMX product in my basement. I can't tell you its the best thing yet because I just installed it about a month ago and won't know the long term advantages until about a year a two and really figure it out. But with all the reading I did, this is the route I chose. Good Luck

I know this is far from the intended use BUT can I use this on concrete patio under an outdoor rug to prevent mold etc?

Asked by: Kate
Im not entirely sure, however, I will say that i put this down on my concrete basement floor and before i was able to put the flooring down on top of this I ended up getting a bit of water in my basement. This was the first time i ever had water in the basement and it wasn't much, but i soaked it up, and ran a dehumidifier. I then put the underlayment back down and within two days had mold growth underneath it. My basement is not yet finished, and i don't have the walls up, so airflow was not an issue. I am not convinced that this product does what it says it does. As a further precaution i painted the concrete with a mold barrier paint purchased from the home depot, and even with that and the DMX on the floor i had small areas of mold growth. I am actually kind of disappointed as this stuff isn't cheap.

How does this material allow water to evaporate if it is water-proof on both sides? Would it not just trap water?

Asked by: Katie
This material lets air circulate beneath the floor level to allow concrete and the earth below it to interact as it normally does in construction. It is probably not suitable if there is active water involved or very damp locations. It makes a great underlayment on concrete floors. Helps add a soft feel to the installed flooring.

It may work but my idea is if you want your concrete to be able to breathe then they need to change design in my opinion.
