Maximum load on floor

I would like to buy a safe for my home. It weighs about 550 lbs empty and floor area would be 31x26 inches. Can my floor handle the weight. I am looking for a guideline figure only. Thanks.

We do not know anything about your floor.

You will have to tell us what material is your subfloor made of, the size of the floor joists and the distance between your floor joists. Then maybe we can help you. Have a good day.
