Learn what to expect before, during, and after your hardwood installation. 

Before Hardwood Installation

Hardwood installation is best left up to the professionals. Here's a basic overview of what to expect before your carpet installation begins.

  • A member of our team will walk you through the installation process, answering any questions that you might have before the job begins.
  • Remove all furniture from the rooms where the installation will take place. Doing so will ensure that your crew can begin the installation promptly.
  • Make sure children and pets will not be present on installation day. Installations can use tools that might not be safe for children or pets.
  • Consider what will happen to your current flooring. Is the installation crew ripping it up, or are you?
  • Have a waste plan. Where will it go?
  • Be prepared to be present on installation day.

During & After Hardwood Installation

  • During your installation, our time will be as communicative as possible with updates and timetables for completion. Hardwood installation may take longer than with other types of flooring.
  • Once completed, do a walk-through with your installation crew to ensure that everything is to your liking and that the job was done as you wanted.
  • Run a fan to help ventilation any installation-related smells that might persist. This is especially true for hardwood floors. 
  • Stay off your floors for at least 24 hours to ensure they settle properly.
  • Contact The Floor Center for any questions!
