Few things can compare to the excitement and anticipation of getting new flooring installed in your home. Before your installers arrive, there are some preparations that need to be made ahead of installation day, such as preparing for removal of your old flooring. Simple things you can do ahead of installation day to ensure safety and peace of mind:
- Unhook and move any large appliances and electronics—stove, fridge, TVs, etc.
- Remove breakables from room, off the walls, from cabinets, or open shelving.
- Remove bed linens, private items, or any valuables.
- Arrange for a plumber to loosen or reinstall anything that may be in the way.
- Arrange for pets to be safely out of the area of installation for a lengthy time.
Professional installers are typically prepared to have to move a few pieces of furniture or other items as agreed upon, however, liability for damage falls on you. For your peace of mind and everyone’s safety, it is best if you secure as much as possible yourself.
The nitty gritty of removal of your old flooring and prepping for new is a lengthy process, taking up a large portion of the installation time allotted. The use of flooring removal equipment dramatically reduces this time, making the work effective, more efficient, convenient, and lowering labor costs. Furthermore, it reduces dust particles in the air during the process, making it a safer method for your home.
With a little prep on your part and the experience of trained installers, your flooring makeover can be quick and worry free. Your new flooring installation will be done the right way in no time!
