Your guide to laminate flooring installation
By now, you’ve learned all you need to know about laminate flooring. You’ve purchased the look and style you want, and you're eagerly awaiting its installation. Here's where a little prep helps—and here's where you'll want to sit back, relax, and let us handle all of the heavy lifting for you! Read on to learn more about the process.
Preparing for Your Laminate Flooring Installation
First, we'll remove all furniture and other objects from the installation area. Beforehand, we recommend that you empty all cabinets & closets and remove any hanging decor such as picture frames from your walls. We may also ask in advance that you activate climate-control (heating or air conditioning) in whichever rooms installation will occur.
Before installation day, we'll also discuss with you the removal & disposal of your old floors.
During & After Your Laminate Flooring Installation
Be prepared to be at home while the installation is taking place to answer any questions the installation crew may have. You'll also be able to assist in ensuring the correct placement of the laminate. It can be difficult to estimate the complexity and length of each job, but we'll keep you updated with any changes in our estimated arrival time for your convenience.
Your installers will use a variety of tools and techniques during the installation that can make the work area hazardous. Therefore, it is important to keep children and pets away from the area until the job is finished.
Once the installation is complete, conduct a thorough walk-through. Doing so allows you to see the finished product, and you can ask any final questions you may have. If you are sensitive to dust and odors, keep the area well-ventilated for up to 72 hours after the laminate is installed.
After your laminate flooring is installed, it's up to you to keep it looking and feeling its best! Follow some simple care and maintenance tips from our experts to prolong the longevity of your flooring.
