Sharon & Sons' flooring installation prep guide

If you're one of the many people who have bought flooring in Santa Ana recently, you're next big step is going to be installation. Many people have a tendency to over prepare for the big day, and end up doing more than they need to get things in order.

So, in an effort to help our customers properly prepare for their Santa Ana flooring install without going over the top, we put together this quick list of tips to help you get ready. Here's what you need to know!

Find a place for your pets

One of the most important things you can do to prepare for the arrival a flooring crew in your Santa Ana home, is to make sure that your pets are kept well away from the work area. Pets can get underfoot, unplug tools, and even soil your new flooring before it is even finished being installed.

If you have a friend or neighbor who can keep an eye on them while the crew is working, that would be ideal. If you can't have them off the property, simply enclosing them outdoors somewhere out of the way should cover it!

Can the clutter

Many Santa Ana flooring installation crews offer furniture moving as part of their work contract, but even those that move furniture expect that small clutter be removed from the premises before their arrival. Things like children's or pet's toys, shoes, or any other random stuff that might be lying around on your floor, should be picked up before the team arrives, so that they can get straight to work and out of your hair as quickly as possible.

Protect your doors

Most flooring you will have installed in your Santa Ana home, will require the removal of any doors attached to the room where it is going to be laid down. Your installers will normally handle this aspect of the job themselves, but if you have extra-fancy doors, you might consider taking care of this step yourself for peace of mind.

Simply pop the doors off of their hinges, find a good place to put them that's out of the way, and lean them against the wall, or stack them on the floor with thick blankets or drop cloths between them.
