Aside from clearing the installation areas in your home, there are a few other ways to prepare:
Luxury vinyl floors need to acclimate to the new environment for 48 hours, so you should have new flooring delivered to your home at least two days before installation.
Examine your new flooring for damage or defects before installation.
Take care of any repairs to the subfloors before installing new flooring, and make sure the flooring surface is clean, flat, dry, and free of debris.
Be sure to install all base and island cabinets before installing luxury vinyl—don’t install cabinets on top of the flooring.
Remove all furniture and appliances from the room, as well as wall and doorway trim, and undercut any door casings.
Plan ahead with your installer for the removal and disposal of old flooring.
Due to varying job conditions, it is not possible for us to guarantee an exact time of arrival. Our crew is provided with a 2-hour window and try to arrive as soon as possible. It is important that you or another responsible adult is present during the installation process and for post-installation inspection.
Take note of any nicks, scratches, or dents on your wall prior to installation.
Make sure there are working electrical outlets available for your installer and their team.
Inspect the entire installation area with your installer and be prepared to sign a form acknowledging the job has been completed.
Some scratching or chipping of the baseboards may have occurred during the installation process. Our installers are professionals and will do their best to minimize any damages. If chipping and scratching occurred, we are not responsible for the replacement cost of your baseboards.
When cleaning vinyl floors, use a soft bristle broom to remove loose dirt. Damp-mop as needed with clean water and a nonabrasive floor cleaner. Harsh cleaning chemicals should not be used on luxury vinyl flooring. Please contact us if you have any additional questions regarding the maintenance of your new flooring.
Invest in high-quality area rugs for an extra layer of protection. Place rugs in high traffic areas as well as place mats at entrances and exits.
