What to Expect from Your Commercial Floor Installer

Start Planning for you Commercial Floor Installation

Looking for the right commercial flooring installer can be a tough job. Even once you’ve found one that works for you, the installation process has only just begun. Knowing what to expect from your floor covering installer can make planning less stressful and make your life a lot easier. Floor Coverings International has a team of professionals who will work with you every step of the way to make the process as smooth and convenient as possible.

Before Installation

Before your floor covering installer begins the installation process, there are a few details to work out. During this time, you’ll need to:

  • Commercial-Floor-InstallerSelect a flooring type
  • Get an estimate for the installation
  • Review payment options
  • Pick a time to have the floor installed

While this may seem like a lot to do, Floor Coverings International makes this part of the process easy with its team of expert Design Associates. We’ll send one out to you as part of your free on-site design consultation. Our team will then take you through the rest of the steps, from estimate to installation, to ensure a smooth process. We make flooring installation stress-free, which is one reason why we’re the best flooring company in the area for commercial flooring installations.

Preparing the Site

On the installation date you’ve selected, the commercial floor installers will arrive and begin preparing for installation. The steps in this process include:

  • Removing any furniture, paintings, curtains, and other items from the area
  • Evening out the subfloor by filling in low areas and sanding down high areas
  • Cleaning the subfloor
  • Temporarily removing wall moldings

In addition, Floor Coverings International offers e-crates for your items so you can keep them safely and conveniently stored during the installation process.

During Installation

While the specifics of the installation process will vary depending on what floor you’ve chosen, there are a few basics you should know that apply to any flooring installation:

  • While the floor is being installed, there will be some noise.
  • While there are systems designed to contain dust during the process, you should expect some dust to get into the area, as no system can capture 100% of dust particles.
  • Because of the dust that may arise, you’ll want to make sure you’ve removed all items that you don’t want any dust on.

Floor Coverings International understands how important timeliness is for your and your business, and we take pride in keeping all of our deadlines. Before you know it, you’ll be back in your building and ready to enjoy your new commercial or industrial flooring.

After Installation

Once your commercial covering installers have finished the job, you can move back into your building with everything you temporarily removed during the prep process. To keep your floor in top shape, there are a few tips you can follow:

  • Depending on what kind of floor you have, consider putting rugs on front of entrances and exits. For wood floors, avoid rugs with rubber on the bottom, as this can cause discoloration.
  • Use proper cleaning products to keep your floor clean. You can consult your Floor Coverings International team to make sure you’re using the rights products for your floor.
  • Avoid certain shoes on certain floors, such as hardwood, as this can cause damage to your new floor. Again, you can consult your Floor Coverings International team for this information.
