What to do before Installation


hen it comes to preparing your home for carpet or flooring installation; the steps to prepare your home are the same. So whether you’re having carpet, laminate, tile, vinyl or hardwood flooring installed, follow these tips to best prep your space. Then, let the experts at Mike Rickwood & Sons take over in creating your beautiful floor.

  • Verification of the installation date

  • Ensuring the removal of all “breakables” from the room.

  • Determining who will remove furniture, appliances and the sub-floor, if needed.

    • Determining if any change to the height of the floor require adjustments to doors in order for them to close properly.
  • Ensuring the removal of items in storage areas and closets where the floor is to be resurfaced.

  • Make certain drapes, wall hangings and pictures are removed from walls.

  • Verify that your in-home temperature is appropriate for installation.
