Wondering about how to prep for your professionals? You’re not alone. There are three basic (and very easy) things every homeowner can prepare to keep work streamlined and efficient.
Obviously, the pros know what they’re doing, but they still may need to ask you about what you want from repairs or installation during consultation. You’ll want to have a clear vision of things like what floor you want, what type of traffic the room you’re redoing gets, and if you want to completely remodel or just repair a few places. You’ll also want to discuss what furniture needs to be cleared out and if anything needs to be covered during the work. You can usually DIY cleanup and cover to cut down on your professional costs. Anticipate these few things and it can make the service streamlined and quick.
Keep Work Area Clear
Keep the areas your flooring professional will be working in clean and free of clutter and debris. If the professional has to do it themselves, that increases the time and labor they give you which increases your cost.
Entertain Pets and Kids Elsewhere
As cute as pets and kids are, they can be a big distraction. Simply keep pets in a separate part of the home while your professional works (this can be in another room or the garage). You never know if your professional is allergic or even uncomfortable around pets. It’s kind and helpful to keep the work area clear of distractions.
