What does “moisture resistant” mean?  Moisture resistant means that water will not affect either the adhesive or the carpet fibers. Should DuraSquares™ self-adhesive carpet tiles get wet, simply remove the water with a wet/dry vacuum cleaner and allow drying before use.

What materials are used in DuraSquares™?

 DuraSquares™ self-adhesive carpet tiles contain long lasting polyester fibers and hot melt pressure sensitive adhesive. Unlike many self-adhesive carpet tiles, the materials used contain no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which can harm the global environment as well as contribute to an unhealthy condition called sick building syndrome.

What is the construction of a DuraSquares tile?

DuraSquares tiles are made from 95% recycled plastic bottles.  Each tile weighs approximately 5.5 ounces (+/- 10%) or 22 ounces per square yard, the thickness is approximately 0.25 inches (+/- 10%) and Tile dimensions are 18" x 18".  Please note that all colors online are approximate.

How do I clean and care for DuraSquares™?

DuraSquares™ self-adhesive carpet squares can be easily cleaned with bleach or any liquid detergent. Simply rinse after applying the solution, remove any excess with a wet/dry vacuum cleaner and allow drying before use. Or, you can have DuraSquares™ professionally cleaned.

How do I know how many DuraSquares™ carpet tiles to purchase?

Measure the floor surface and allow 10 percent additional for tiles that have to be cut at the walls. Keep unused material for future use such as replacing tiles that might become damaged.

What makes DuraSquares™ stay securely in place?

DuraSquares™ self-adhesive carpet tiles are held in place by strips of highly performant adhesive solution. Once set, DuraSquares™ bond securely to the floor surface.  However you can remove them easily as well (see below).

What if I need to reposition a DuraSquares™ carpet tile during installation?

Repositioning DuraSquares™ self-adhesive carpet tiles is seldom necessary because our patent pending system does not require tiles to be attached until they are in position. As the user-friendly instructions specify, simply remove the narrow center release tape on the back of the tile. This exposes a narrow band of adhesive that still allows the tile to be positioned. When the tile is in the correct position, applying pressure to the center portion of the tile causes the exposed adhesive to bond to the floor, holding the tile in position while the two outer release tapes are removed.

If I move can I take DuraSquares along?

Durasquares are not designed to be re-installed after use as a floor covering.. DuraSquares can be removed and if desired new ones put back down (there is very little residue from these tiles). However the used tiles cannot be re-installed.
