What to expect
When it comes to hardwood flooring installation, we recommend hiring a professional. hardwood floor installation is a labor-intensive process that requires special tools and expertise. Because your hardwood floors will be a part of your home for years to come, it’s important to make sure that your flooring installation is done properly.
Before installation, it’s important to remove everything from the room, including furniture, curtains and decorations. Your hardwood floor may need time to acclimate to the room before installation. This time can vary from a few days to a few weeks.
During the hardwood flooring installation, your installation professional may use different techniques depending on your situation and the product to be installed including:
- Nailing down flooring
- Stapling down flooring
- Gluing down flooring
- Floating flooring
Depending on the technique used, there may be a fair amount of noise during the process. This will be particularly true if your floors are being sanded and finished.
After installation, it will be up to you to maintain your new hardwood wood floors. Pay special attention to cleaning and to preventing scratching and denting by using rugs, mats, and felt pads for furniture.
