Three Tips For A Smooth Residential Flooring Installation

Three tips for a smooth residential flooring installation
Any experienced Myrtle Beach flooring customer can tell you that a flooring installation can be pretty disruptive to your everyday life. It's never easy having a troop of strangers in your home pounding, sawing, and generally causing a racket. So, it's obviously important to do what you can to streamline the process, so you can get back to the business of living your life.

While there isn't much that a homeowner needs to do when it comes to a residential flooring installation, there are a few things you can do to help save yourself some of the inevitable headaches that come with major renovation work being done in the home. Here are a few tips to help you do just that!

Keep the pets hidden away

Work sites are fairly dangerous places, especially for pets. Pets on the work-site can get into all sorts of trouble, from getting into chemicals, to tripping workers. It's best for everyone if you are able to keep them enclosed somewhere outside and away from the action or, better yet, have them stay with a friend or family member until the work is done.

Set up an outdoor cutting area

If you really wanted to go the extra mile and help your crew streamline things, you could set up a sheltered outdoor cutting and work area. This will allow you to make sure that most of the cutting dust and other mess caused by the work, stays contained to an area mostly outside of the house, and gives your workers a convenient, centralized place from which to work.

Clear the room

Depending upon your agreement with your installers, you may or may not be responsible for moving heavy furniture or appliances from an area. Even if you aren't responsible for that part of the work, you should be sure that the area to be worked on is as uncluttered as possible before the crew arrives. Pick up any stray shoes, toys, or other small items lying around, so that your crew can get straight to work. The sooner they start, the sooner they will be out of your hair!
