How do I prepare for installation?

You've visited your local Carpet One Floor & Home store and selected your new exotic hardwood floor or maybe a super-soft carpet for your home. Before your installation date rolls around, remember that installers are professional craftsman and need to have the area properly prepared before they can install your new flooring.

The below checklist aims to help you prepare for your hardwood floor installation, carpet installation, or other flooring install.

  • Remove all breakables.

  • Determine up front who will remove furniture, appliances and the sub floor if needed.

  • Arrange for the disconnection of gas appliances and electronics.

  • Determine if any change to the height of the floor requires adjustments to doors for them to open and close properly.

  • Remove items in storage areas and closets where the new floor is to be installed.

  • Remove drapes, wall hangings and pictures from walls.

  • Clean all floors properly prior to laying new floors.

  • Verify that the inside temperature is appropriate for installation.
