If you have recently decided to replace your floors – congratulations! This can be an exciting time, but it may also be a stressful time. But do not worry, our team is here to help you prepare for your brand new floors to be installed. Here are some of the important steps necessary to prepare for your flooring installation.
- Remove Old Flooring – First and foremost, arrange to have your existing flooring removed. Your existing floors should be removed and out of your home before your professional floor installers arrive. This will ensure that the installation process will go smoothly without any delays.
- Clear the Area – It’s important to have the area cleared before your installers arrive. This entails having valuable items, furniture, and decor relocated to prevent accidents and damage to your items. Making a clear path will make the installers’ job easier and prevent damage to your home.
- Prepare for Waste Removal – Just like any jobsite, installation generates trash and debris from items being installed. Have proper waste removal ready so the cleanup process will be easier and trash stays out of the way of the workers.
- Who Should Be There – At the time of your flooring installation, the owner of the home should be present. Additionally, for the safety of your family – children and pets should stay away from the work area.
We hope these tips will help you prepare for a smooth and safe floor installation. If you have any questions regarding flooring installation or the services we provide, please contact us at Express Affordable Flooring today.
