How to prevent or correct waves in your dance floor
If your flooring has been rolled for a while, been stored without a tube, or has had weighted objects put on top of it, it is possible you have wave set. You know the minute you roll out your floor. It has waves and doesn’t lie flat. If this happens, here are some of the steps you can take to alleviate this problem.
- Roll the floor up the opposite way around a tube and keep it in a warm place for a day or two. Then, unroll to see if you have fixed, or at the very least improved, the condition of the flooring.
- Use heat (with caution) and pressure. A hair dryer works. Warm up the wave area, then put weight on it for about 24 hours. If it has not improved by the next day, you may have an unfixable floor.
