Proper preparation is key to ensuring a smooth and successful installation. Here are some steps to take to prepare your home for a flooring installation project:

  1. Clear the room: Remove all furniture, rugs, and any other items from the room where the new flooring will be installed. This will give the installation team plenty of space to work and will help protect your belongings from any potential damage.

  2. Repair any damage: If there are any scratches, dents, or other damage to the subfloor, it’s important to repair it before the new flooring is installed. This will ensure a smooth, even surface for the new flooring to be installed on.

  3. Clean the room: Make sure to thoroughly clean the room before the installation team arrives. This includes dusting, vacuuming, and mopping to ensure that the floor is as clean as possible.

  4. Protect doorways and other openings: If the new flooring is a different height than the existing flooring, it may be necessary to trim doorways or other openings to allow for the new flooring. Make sure to protect these areas with drop cloths to avoid any accidental damage.

  5. Make any necessary arrangements: If the installation will take place over multiple days, make sure to plan for any necessary accommodations such as finding a temporary place to stay or making arrangements for pets.

Taking the time to properly prepare your home for a flooring installation project will help ensure a smooth and successful installation process. If you have any concerns or questions, be sure to discuss them with the installation team before the project begins.
