Customer Questions

Ask a Question
Are the tiles themselves 2'x2' or does that include the removable ends pieces in the 2'x2' measurement? Also, I was considering this for a home pilates studio. I don't mind if the tiles indent from the pilates reformer, however, will the forward and backward impact on the machine cause the tiles to rip?
Our Premium Soft Wood Tiles are 2' x 2' with the removable edge pieces. With them removed the tiles are 23.38" x 23.38". These tiles can be used under a Pilates Reformer since the machine itself is stationary. The weight of the machine will create an indentation in the tiles. So if you were to move the machine you could move the tiles that were placed underneath it to hide the damaged tiles. If you are looking for a product that will hold up better to the weight of the machine, I would suggest using our Impact Rolls - Wood Series. This product gives you the look of wood with a durable vinyl top layer.
Are tiles fireproof if used in a kitchen?
Our 5/8" Premium Soft Wood Tiles are not fire proof, but they are fire resistant.
Can the rubber tiles be used on stairs?
Our Premium Soft Wood tiles can be used on stairs. The veneer on these tiles may not stand up to the traffic that is found on stairs, but they can be installed on them. To install these tiles to stairs you will need to glue them with a pressure sensitive adhesive. Our 5000 series adhesive works well for this application.
Will high heels ruin this type of flooring? I'm looking for something durable to use in a photography studio.
Our Premium Soft Wood Tiles are made of foam and can be damaged by high heels. If you are looking for a wood look floor that will give you some anti-fatigue properties and stand up to high heels, we recommend our Eco-Impact Roll - Wood Series or our Impact Rolls - Wood Series.
For the tiles, do i need to place a vapor barrier underneath them in cemented areas like a basement?
Our Premium Soft Wood Tiles are made with close celled EVA foam and would not need a vapor barrier placed underneath them. If you do have water issues, we do recommend sealing your floor first , which will help to reduce incidences of mold and mildew growth.

Can you apply these tiles over carpet or do you have to pull up the carpet before putting the tiles down.
Our Premium Soft Wood Tiles can be placed over a commercial grade low pile carpet with ease. Over high pile carpet, there is a chance the tiles will separate creating a tripping hazard.
Sometimes my basement gets damp with summer humidity, will these tiles work for me? I have a concrete floor I would like to cover.
Our 5/8" Premium Soft Wood Tiles are made with a closed cell EVA foam making them resistant to mold, mildew, and water. So the moisture in your basement will not affect the tiles in any way.
I've been looking for a flooring option for our basement and this product looks wonderful, but I need to know how well it holds up with wheelchair use. One of our children is a wheelchair user, would this flooring hold up against a child-weight wheelchair?
Our Premium Soft Wood Tiles are made of foam and will not hold up well to a wheel chair. We do offer several wood looking products that would hold up better. Our Eco-Impact Rolls - Wood Series and our Impact Rolls - Wood Series are both great alternatives to our Soft Wood Tiles due to their durability and ease of installation.
Can you tape the tiles together so they don't separate as easily and if so what kind of tape would you recommend?
You can tape our 5/8" Premium Soft Wood Tiles. We recommend using our Mat Tape since it is less aggressive. You can use our Double-Sided tape to keep the tiles together and also in your desired installation area, but when removed, there is potential for damage to the tiles.
Are all of the straight edge pieces included? Also, can these be put over carpet or does it have to be removed first?
Each Premium Soft Wood Tile comes with two removable edge pieces. These will allow you to create corner, border and center tiles. These soft tiles can be placed over commercial grade carpet with ease. If you have thick pile carpet, the tiles can be placed over it. But there is potential for the foam tiles to separate.
Wanted to know if the wood tiles are safe from animal claw puncturing?

I'm putting these on hardwood floors, turning a dining room into a play room. What do I use for a transition piece into the kitchen/foyer so people don't trip. The 14mm was too high for the rubber transition piece you offer and I don't want a lot of additional expense. Thanks!
Our Premium Soft Wood Tiles do not currently have a transition piece for them, but you can use any standard flooring trim piece to finish your floor.
How are the premium soft wood tiles cleaned?

How much weight can tile handle? Will it help with cold floor? I'm looking to put them on top of our ceramic tile floor and put TV stand and sofa on top of soft wood foam tile.
Our Premium Soft Wood Tiles are made of foam, so any amount of weight will cause them to depress to varying degrees. Since these tiles are made with closed cell EVA foam, they will provide you with excellent insulating properties. For any heavy furniture, we recommend using Furniture Sliders underneath the furniture legs to prevent permanently damaging the floor.
Is a steam mop okay to use for cleaning? I am concerned about the temperature affecting the materials.
For our Premium Soft Wood Tiles, we recommend using a synthetic mop head with a mild soap and water solution. Using a steam mop may be ok, but there is always a concern that the print may be affected.

Our 5/8" Premium Soft Wood Tiles are able to withstand temperatures as high as 140°F without melting or curling. So these tiles will work just fine installed next to your baseboard heater.
Does this 5/8" tile come with beveled edge. Can you get beveled edge?
Our 5/8" Premium Soft Wood Tiles do not come with a beveled edge.
What the best way to cut the tiles? A straight edge and razor? Or table saw? A friend bought these and I'm going to help install them
The best way to cut our 5/8" Premium Soft Wood Tiles is a sharp utility knife and a straight edge. We do not recommend using a table saw due to the fact the tile will melt as the blade is cutting it.
Is there any way to remove or lighten up the scuff marks that have appeared after installation and cleaning?
We recommend using pledge to take out the scuff marks from our dark wood colored soft wood tiles. The floor may not look perfect depending on how the scuff mark was created, but it will look virtually like new after application.

I'm looking for flooring for a kids yoga studio. Are the dark maple tiles slippery? The class is very active and we are often off of the yoga mats and running around on the floor. If they are slippery, is there another option you'd recommend?
Our 5/8" Premium Soft Wood Tiles can be slippery if you are wearing socks on the tiles. With bare feet, these tiles are pretty slip-resistant. If a good deal of sweat and other liquids do get on the floor, then you may need to wipe it up before running around on the tiles to eliminate the slipping hazard.

I have purchased these foam tiles for my fitness studio, and I am very happy with them. As the temps change, I do feel cold coming from the cement floor through the tiles. It's not terrible. But I'm wondering if there's something I can put between the cement and the foam to keep the foam tiles warmer.
To prevent additional cold coming up under our Premium Soft Wood Tiles, we would recommend placing an underlay underneath the tiles. Our cork underlayments would provide you with the best temperature absorption.
Can heavy furniture like a bookshelf be placed on the Premium Soft Wood foam tiles?

I am looking for a flooring I can install easily over tile floor. This is for elderly parents that are prone to falling. They use walkers.
Since our Premium Soft Wood Tiles are made of foam they would be great for falls, but may not work well when a person is using a walker. We do have a product that would work perfect for both falls and also allowing a walker to be used, and that is our Impact Rolls - Wood Series. These rolls feature a vinyl top with a shock absorbent rubber bottom. These rolls will help to absorb the impact of the fall and will also allow for a walker or wheel chair to easily roll over the floor.
Do the tiles come with the edge pieces? I don't see where to order those on the website.

We have a hair salon that gets very noisy. Would this help with noise? Maybe if we put them on a wall behind the sinks?
Our 5/8" Premium Soft Wood tiles would help to reduce the noise in a room where installed. Made with EVA foam, these tiles will not only provide you with comfort underfoot but will help reduce the amount of reverberation that can be generated in a space that has a lot of tile. These tiles are very easy to clean and maintain and are easy to install and replace when damaged. The only issue that may pop up is when someone where's high heels on the floor. You will see some damage to the tiles when high wheels are worn across them.
Can any type of flooring be installed over foam tiles?
You can install any floor over our Premium Soft Wood Tiles. These tiles are denser than standard carpet padding giving you a solid surface that is sturdy but also provides comfort underfoot. These tiles would be similar to a standard foam underlay.
What do you do in a door frame, if no taper is available?
When you come to a door when installing our Premium Soft Wood Tiles, you can use any reducer between the tiles and the flooring it's coming to.
