lay wood floor - Flooring job in Petersfield

“MDL Flooring (Mark) were excellent. He fitted an engineered wooden floor in our sitting room. The original consultation was very efficient and Mark is a very easy person to deal with. He provided a number of samples from a number of suppliers. We choose the flooring and Mark provided all the additional items. The fitting of the floor was excellent and Mark worked very hard and the finished result was superb. We can not recommend him highly enough.”

Answers:

I would not recommended installing carpet on top of laminated flooring. laminate is a smooth floating surface and will cause the carpet to slip and move resulting in your carpet stretching over time. the removal of laminate flooring does not take long and will save you money in the long time. so it's not worth try to just to save time.
If these stairs are newly fitted with mdf, then these stairs would need to be treated. recommendation to firstly treat with mdf primer, followed by prime before you put on your gloss paint. before this though will need to make sure all nail heads and screw are taken care of and fill all holes with suitable wood filter, sand and then treat stairs. normally i would charge this as a days rate.
If you are intending on reusing tiles then the grout needs to be removed first, then starting slowly on the first tile gently pry up the first tile, once removed pretty much the same on the rest of the tiles only it will be come much easier. same if not only you don't have to worry if they break. once removed use a floor scraper and remove all traces of the previous adhesive / thinset mortar. filling and cracks or holes with appropriate filler. sand down and clean up.
This sounds like a dampness issue which has resulted in mould growth, it is actually a type of water-borne bacteria, serratia marcescens. where moisture from under the vinyl has come through. no quick fit here i am afraid, the only solution would be to replace.
Ideally rooms should be clear of all furniture, to ensure the carpets are properly fitted. larger items such as a table can remain its just a case of moving it to one side of the room and instead of lifting a heavy items i used some plastic sheets to slide it easily across and when the first half the room has been fitted. i slide cross to the other side of room. time consuming and will cost you more.
