Before your installation
We will remove all furniture and objects from the room(s). Ahead of your installation, we’ll review large objects that may require special care and consideration when they are moved. Make sure to empty the contents of any cabinets, drawers, and closets in these areas before our installation team arrives.
If necessary, moldings and baseboards may need to be removed before the vinyl can be installed. In some cases, this may warrant any baseboards, woodwork, and paint be retouched once installation is complete.
Most vinyl flooring allows for a floating installation, but it is still important that the subfloor be as clean and level as possible. We will work with you to determine if the existing floor or subfloor is suitable before the vinyl is laid and take the steps to prepare it if needed.
Since installing new vinyl can produce waste, we generally collect these discarded materials and leave them at your trash collection site. On the day before installation, check in with us so that we are on the same page regarding cleanup and potential added costs. We can create a plan for your vinyl remnants.
Your presence will be required on the day of installation in case the installation crew has questions. Throughout the day, our team can check in with you. Although there’s no exact way to estimate the length and circumstances of each job, we strive to give you an accurate arrival & departure time. We ask and thank you for your flexibility in advance. We are a team!
Due to the variety of tools and techniques needed to professionally install your vinyl, we deem the work area too hazardous for your family to be present. Make sure your loved ones and pets are clear of all work areas during installation to ensure everyone’s safety.
Before the completion of your new vinyl installation, we want you to walk through the job with the chief installer. Ask all the questions you have and get a clear understanding of any final details. Your satisfaction is our number one goal.
Establish good ventilation if you or your family are sensitive to dust and odors. If so, provide those rooms with adequate airflow for 2-3 days by opening windows & running fans to create a breeze when possible.
Do not walk on your new vinyl floor for a minimum of 24 hours after installation is complete, and do not clean it for 24 hours in case any seam sealer or adhesives were used. Also, lift or slide heavy furniture and appliances using pads when you move them back into the room. Never drag or scrape across your vinyl floors.
