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!


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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! 


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!

Jim and the team were great to work with. They made time to answer our questions and to walk through the project details. They made adjustments when needed and were transparent in the progress. We are very happy with the end result. They put in new flooring for the first floor and removed existing flooring and carpet.

We love our new floors from Floorscapes! From picking out the best flooring for our situation through the installation process, they could not have been better. Not only are they very knowledgeable and professional, but every person we dealt with was very friendly and responded quickly to any questions we had. Three of my family members have used Floorscapes over the last two years, and each one of us have had wonderful experiences. I highly recommend them. They really are the BEST!

Work was done beautifully. I had old carpeting removed from my spare bedroom/craft room and a wood floor installed. I love it. Scheduling was a little fluid but I understand complications can arise. They'll be doing another room for me next month.
