What to Expect from Your Hardwood Installation
If you’re having hardwood flooring installed in your current home, take the following steps to prepare to help ensure the job goes smoothly:
- Remove all belongings from the rooms in which your hardwood will be installed. This includes furniture, décor, electronics, and wall hangings. You'll also need to empty the contents of any closets. We may be able to move your furniture for you; we will give you more information on this step before your installation takes place.
- We may deliver your hardwood before your installation date so that it can acclimate to your home. We will let you know if this is necessary.
- We recommend that the walls and trim be painted after the flooring is installed. However, should you have the painting complete, plan on touching up after the flooring is installed.
- We may need to remove your doors.
- Plan to keep pets and kids away from the work area until the job is complete.
- Be prepared to deal with dust and odors during and after the installation.
