Preparing for installation
Hardwood flooring requires a flat, clean surface for proper installation. To ready the area for your new flooring, you'll first have to remove your existing flooring. Calling in a pro at this point is a good idea. A pro may also be able to assist with the disposal of your old flooring.
You will also need to remove all the furniture from the rooms where your new hardwood will be installed. A professional moving team can minimize the amount of time you have to live without your furniture at the end of each job. You should also take down photos or other wall hangings which can be damaged accidentally during the installation of your hardwood flooring.
During & after installation
An adult member of your household (age 18 or older) should greet your installer and show them to the work area. Be sure to get a walkthrough of the job from the lead installer to give you a clear idea of what the work involved and ask them any questions you have about the job. To ensure everyone’s safety and to help the job go smoothly, keep children and pets away from the work area for the duration of the job. Stay off your new flooring for the required amount of time after the job is done. The stain and varnish that has been used on the surface will need time to cure properly. The lead installer will be able to advise you on how long this will take. If the smell of varnish or stain bothers you, open windows for ventilation.
