What bright spark came up with that for an idea eh??? especially in a bloody kitchen
I have lived here nearly a year now, and in that entire time it has been a never ending fight to get the bloody washing machine on the level. Trouble is I am pretty sure at some time in the past there has been a spill and the floor is !$&ed the result being the washing machine sets the floor bouncing.
Thought I had it as good as could be, one spin fine then final spin and wondering whether it will end up in the flat below.
Arrrgh!!! Whatever happened to building things properly rather than on the cheap.
And it's a complete bsrd to lift a section to get at the wiring etc. And it never really goes down properly after. It is the tool of Satan.
Your best solution is to wear dsposable Tyvek clothes only. You could tell the neighbours you're into nuwave-electro, or are from a distant planet (they may well think so already, who am I to say?). You can use the space where the washer used to be sto store beer.
I've had to chop enough of the stuff up to lay pipework, Its horrible, turns to porridge when it gets wet. The damn builders build partition walls on top of it, and as other have said, you can NEVER get it back down again properly.
Work on a lot of new builds, it's all about cost. One of the main problems over time with the chip board floor is they nail the boards down rather than screw. Over time the nails come loose creating creaking floors . Had to go round mine with a hammer about a month ago.
