How do I or do I need to secure this down to my basment concrete? Can i just place carpet tile directly ontop without using any glue, screws, etc?

Asked by Melvin January 29, 2021

Answer

Great product installs without glue or other fasteners. Cut right up to nail strips. Use the provided vapor tape to all seams. Caution needs to be taken for the carpet installer hot seaming the carpet above the pad by using an additional paper barrier to prevent pad from the seaming Iron heat.

The DMX Airflow, a really great product, and DMX 1Step Carpet is a thicker carpet topper and a less dense plastic bubble vapor layer on the DMX 1Step Carpet underlayment. The DMX Airflow can be used for both plank flooring and carpet. Where the DMX 1Step Carpet is best for just carpet only.

Basement floor is concrete with linoleum squares on top. Does the linoleum have to be removed?

Since linoleum does not foster mold when damp like carpet. One step could be taken laced directly over it.

Failure
I was so excited to find this product, thought I had done my due diligence in research. Lasted just 1.5 years, seams are completely failing. It started with one brown spot on my carpet, then two, then three, all in a line. Decided to pull the carpet back to check and my suspicions were correct. Moisture had seeped up through the seam. I also didn’t see any evidence of the “dissipation” of moisture that the product claims... there were some very moist spots. This product was installed AFTER installing a French drain with sump pump, patching holes with hydraulic cement and applying porch and floor paint to seal the cement.

Response from Customer ServiceNov 10, 2020
Dear Ahicken:

We are disappointed to read your review. We are not sure what you mean "the seams are completely failing"? Did you tape the seams with vapor tape? How were they failing if the load on your carpet is vertical from the top? Moisture dissipates over time, it does not dissipate instantly. But we still don't understand how moisture would seep up through the seams because our vapor tape creates a complete vapor proof seal. We would appreciate if you could contact us at customerservice@dmx1step.com or call toll free at 1-855-501-7837. We will have our engineering technologist speak to you to find out what happened. We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

Customer Care

Installed on top of a concrete basement floor that was not leveled beforehand. Applied self-stick carpet squares on top. Very easy to install this under pad/vapor barrier. Cuts very easily to fit around corners and obstacles. The tape included with each roll was more than enough to do the job. Very quiet under foot. Very pleased with the product. Recommended/

I purchased 7 rolls of 100sq foot DMX 1-step from Home Depot. While installing I noticed a periodic star shaped puckering in the pad about 29 inches in diameter every x feet. Appeared to be a manufacturing problem. I planned to lay 23.5” carpet tiles and worried that the puckering would prevent the tile from laying properly. I emailed the manufacturer’s customer service several times but received no response. Because I only had a few days to finish the project, I finally decided to cut out the puckered area and replace with extra pieces that I had planned to use in a different room. Other than the puckering and customer service problem, it’s a fine product. I have photos but can’t find a way to upload here.
