Unit: Preparing floor coverings

LMFFL2002A: Receive and prepare floor covering materials for installation

Preparing floor coverings

Your trainer may ask you to complete this assignment as one of the assessment requirements for this unit. For more information about the assessment process and advice on what to do if you need help with your reading and writing, click on the link below.

Assessment requirements

Select two job sheets for separate installation projects. They should represent different types of floor covering material and different job types - such as one domestic and one commercial job.

Your trainer may ask you to use job sheets from installations you have carried out at work, or may give you job sheets specifically for this assignment.

Alternatively, your trainer might decide to integrate the assessment for this unit with two practical installation assessments. In this case, the job sheets you use will relate to the actual floor laying tasks you are about to demonstrate.

For each project, answer the following questions.

  1. Describe the installation project and state the type of floor covering used.

  2. What is the process for checking that the materials you are loading up in the warehouse are correct in terms of product type, quantity, etc? What would you do if any of the materials were incorrect, or if there was any damage that might cause problems on-site?

  3. What is the most efficient method for unloading the materials from your vehicle and taking them to the installation area? For example, will you need mechanical aids or an offsider?

  4. What sorts of damage do you need to protect the materials from on this type of jobsite? Name two possible types of damage and the methods you would use to ensure it doesn't occur.

  5. What are the acclimatisation instructions for the floor covering? List the instructions specified by the manufacturer that are relevant to this jobsite.
