Prepare for Flooring Installation

An answer to the question that makes
all of our lives easier: "How to Prepare for
Flooring Installation?"

How to Get Ready for a Flooring Install

We like to prepare our customers as much as we can before any installation. Whether it's hardwood flooring or LVP, we've got you covered. Taking these simple steps in advance ensures our customers peace of mind throughout project duration. Meanwhile, you help provide your Flooring Installation team an efficient and effective workspace. We thank you in advance!

PARKING

A clear and easily accessible parking space for our crew, preferably outside the garage or near the front walkway, is ideal.

SETUP SPACE

A crew needs about a 10’x10’ area of cleared space for flooring installation tool setup. Garages or patios are great spots!

APPLIANCES

We bring in a team of hired professionals to disconnect water or gas lines. Our clients can disconnect themselves if they want!

FRAGILE ITEMS

Please remove any fragile/small items such as artwork, knick-knacks, vases, toiletries, etc. from areas of installation.

EMPTY SHELVES

Please empty shelves or drawers belonging to furniture that is pre-determined to be moved during installation.

PANTRIES AND CLOSETS

Please keep flooring clear of totes, laundry, or any other items that may be found in small spaces such as closets, pantries, etc.

FURRY FRIENDS

For pets, plan a daily location during the workday, a route to be let out, and a designated feeding station. It is extremely helpful.

TECHNOLOGY

Please unplug electronics such as the TV, computer, VCR (throwback), and lamps. With work from home, we understand WiFi is a must, we can work around it! 

FELT PADS

If you’d like felt and/or rubber pads to be applied to furniture after installation, please have the pads on hand by the day of job completion.

Professional Flooring Installers: 
Do You Need Them? 

Look, we're going to be honest: we're pretty sure that 50% of our customers (at least at the beginning) think that our job is to just "slap down a floor and leave." Whether it's a straight forward job or not, Floorscapes takes it a lot more seriously than that. In a previous blog, we cover DIY vs. Professional Flooring Installation. 

Floorscapes provides floor leveling services, floor prep services, flooring mitigation services, custom trim work, and more.  However, if it is a semi-straight forward job that requires tear up, minimal floor prep, flooring installation, and trim installation, we offer flooring installation analysis services. Floorscapes can steer you in the right direction if you decide the go the DIY route. Just let us know!
