Hardwood Flooring Pre Installation SetupSo you’ve finally made the decision to have new flooring installed. Great! We’re happy you’ve decided in favor of something fresh and new for your lovely home. Now, we at Carpet Wagon want to let you know about a few tips to ensure the installation goes smoothly.

Because you too can help in this area, although you may be bringing in the professionals (like those of us here at Carpet Wagon) to execute this task. Take a look at a few of these tips and suggestions.

1. Removing The Old Flooring

That’s not to say that you should be the one to remove it. If you have the ability to do so, that’s fantastic. If not, the professionals (that’s us) can handle it for you. For more information in this regard, please visit here.

Should you have a third party come in to remove the original flooring, be sure to have all the information that we may need in order to carry out the installation seamlessly. Contact us for specifics, as this will range on a case-by-case basis.

2. Moving The Furniture And Valuables

The floor space will, of course, need to be cleared prior to your new floor installation. So it’s important to either move the furniture beforehand or make it simple enough for the installer to do themselves. To make this process much easier, you should ensure that any valuable or antique pieces that adorn the space are moved to a safe and out-of-the-way location.

3. Remodeling Beforehand

Are you planning to paint the space? Before we can install your new flooring, you should take care of any painting, wallpapering or other remodeling in advance. Allow enough time for fixtures and cement to set, or for paint to dry.

With this list in mind, you’re ready to take step one toward having your new floors installed. These 3 quick tips can help us, your flooring installation professionals, execute a smoother job.
