Subfloor Preparation 
Concrete Subfloor
  1. Test the floor for moisture. Tape a 3-foot-square piece of scrap vinyl to the concrete with duct tape, sealing the edges tight. Leave the vinyl in place for 72 hours. Pull it up. If the tape releases easily, the floor is too damp for vinyl.
  2. Clean the floor with a wet-dry vacuum to remove any dust and debris.
  3. Pass a carpenter’s level across the surface of the concrete floor to check for levelness. Mark high and low spots.
  4. Stir ready-to-use floor patching compound with a paint stirring stick. Fill low spots on the floor with patching compound, applied with a putty knife. Feather the edges of the patch to blend with the surrounding concrete. Allow the patch to dry. Follow label recommendations for drying time, but most dry within 20 minutes. Sand any rough edges with medium-grit sandpaper.
  5. Attach medium-grit sandpaper to a belt sander to grind off the high spots on the concrete floor. Clean the floor with the vacuum when you finish sanding.  
Wood Subfloor
  1. Measure and cut 1/4-inch or thicker plywood with a circular saw to fit the entire floor of the room where you are installing vinyl flooring. The goal is to have a wooden subfloor consisting of two layers at least 1-inch thick.
  2. Arrange the plywood on the floor so the joints of this layer do not align with the subfloor joints below. Allow 1/4-inch gap along the walls and between the joints for expansion. Secure the plywood to the subfloor at 6-inch intervals with 1-inch deck screws placed along the edges. Set all screw heads slightly below the surface.
  3. Apply floor patching compound to the joints and over the screw heads. Smooth it in place and allow it to dry. Sand any rough edges with medium-grit sandpaper.
  4. Clean the floor with a wet-dry vacuum to remove any dust or debris that remains.
Vinyl Subfloor
  1. Clean the old vinyl with a household floor cleaner. Alternatively, mix a few drops of dish detergent in water to clean the floor. Rinse the floor and allow it to dry.
  2. Apply floor patching compound to any cracks in the old vinyl to create a smooth surface. Allow the compound to dry and sand away any roughness with medium-grit sandpaper.
  3. Vacuum any dust and debris from the floor.
