Get Your Home Ready for a New Floor

Use our guide to get the inside scoop on what you should be doing around your house before your flooring professional arrives to begin installing a new floor in your home.
Inspect the Room
Spend some time in the room where you’re installing a new floor and take a good look around. Check for any breakables and find a temporary home for those belongings that fit into this category. Though they will likely be safe if they remain in this room, you should remove them to be safe.
Remove All Necessary Items
Check for other materials you may want to remove, such as items you may need during the installation process which you may be temporarily unable to reach. You should also remove anything plugged into outlets such as space heaters, extension cords, fans, etc. Not only will you ensure these items remain out of the way, but they will also be accessible to you during the installation process. Remove anything hanging from the walls as well to prevent any potential damage.
Change the Temperature
Speak with your flooring professional to see what the proper temperature should be during the time of installation. Some types of wood and installation processes call for a specific temperature range so be sure to check in before the installation begins.
