New floors can give your home a refreshing uplift, and genuine hardwood materials have been loved by homeowners for a long time. If you’re excited to get custom hardwood floor installation at your house, learn how to prepare for the work so it goes smoothly.
Remove Everything from the Room
It’s tempting to think the installers can work on one half of a room and then the other half, but that actually slows down the work. It’s best to take out all the furniture, no matter how large or small. Pack up breakable items to avoid damage and curtains to avoid them getting dusty.
Take Down Doors, Trim and Baseboards
To give the installers the greatest ability to lay your flooring flush with the walls, remove the doors, doorway trim and baseboards. This also gives you the opportunity to select new doors and add-ons that better match the look of your new floors.
Secure Your Pets
Even the friendliest dog or cat could feel threatened by having strangers in the house. Avoid any negative interactions between your pets and your hardwood floor installers by keeping your pets separated from the contractors. Not only does it shield the workers from the threat of getting bitten or scratched, it protects your pet from unnecessary stress and anxiety.
