Different Ways to Prepare Your Home for a Flooring Project

Installing new hardwood floors in your home can be an exciting prospect. You’re not just getting a fresh batch of flooring, but you’re also improving your home’s aesthetic sense and property value. But, of course, there are some preparations that have to be made first before you can install your new hardwood flooring.

In this post, Handyman Connection® of Carmel discusses the various ways you can prepare your home for a flooring installation project.

Move Your Furniture

One of the first things you should do when preparing your home is to move your furniture. Your workers will not only need as much space as possible, but they won’t be able to install your flooring with the furniture in the way. This includes your fragile items like your vases, lamps, collectibles and heirlooms. Basically, anything that can impede the workers’ progress should be moved to a different location for a while.

Detach and Store Wiring

Hardwood flooring installation can be a messy process so you should always be open to the possibility that some items that aren’t kept safe might get damaged in the process. This includes your electronic wiring. To avoid any damage to these items, it’s best that you detach and store the wirings of your TVs, sound systems and computers.

Remove All Sheets, Blankets and Bedspreads

As stated before, flooring installations can get messy, and dust and debris could start flying around during the job. If you’re installing new hardwood floors in your bedroom, remove all sheets, blankets and bedspreads beforehand so they’re not affected by any dust.

Plan for Delivery

Typically, the flooring will be delivered to your home 48 hours in advance so they can acclimate to its new space. Once it arrives, follow the temperature and humidity guidelines for the best results.
