OUR HARDWOOD INSTALLATION PROCESS
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW!
New hardwood flooring can increase the value of your home for decades to come. That's why it's important to trust professionals with your hardwood installation! The experts at Reinhold Flooring have the skills and experience needed to get the job done right.
Preparing for installation
Preparation is very important for a successful hardwood flooring project. While you should consult with your Reinhold Flooring flooring specialist for complete instructions, there are a few things that will give you an idea of what your project will involve.
First, you should know that hardwood flooring requires a flat, clean surface for proper installation. To ready the area for your new flooring, you may have to remove your existing flooring. This process will vary.
You will also need to remove all the furniture from the rooms where your new hardwood is to be installed. A professional moving and storage company can be incredibly useful at this point, especially for large or heavy items.
During and after installation
An adult member of your household (age 18 or older) should greet the installers and show them to the work area. Get a complete walkthrough of the site and ask any questions. Make sure pets and children stay away from the area until the job is complete.
Once the installation is complete, stay off your new flooring until the stain or varnish has time to fully cure. The installers will be able to offer more insight on this. Finally, if the smell of the varnish bothers you, you should establish good ventilation.
After installation, it will be up to you to maintain your new hardwood wood floors. Pay special attention to cleaning and prevent scratching and denting by using rugs, mats, and felt pads for furniture. If you have questions about floor maintenance, we would be happy to answer them for you.
