How to Prepare Your Home for Bamboo Flooring Installation

Now that you’ve chosen your new EcoFusion strand woven bamboo floors, you’ll need to consider the next phase of your renovations: The installation. Luckily, our informative checklist will guide you through the process of ensuring that your space is ready for the professional installers. However, don’t leave it up to the very last second to prep the area, as you don’t want to risk any unforeseen delays. There are several things you’ll need to take into account before that exciting day rolls around, so read through our detailed advice, to make sure your gorgeous strand woven bamboo floors get a seamless install.  
Empty Your Renovation Space
For a problem-free renovation, make sure to remove all breakable items. Even if you don’t think it’ll be in the way, just remove it. That includes any pictures or paintings hanging on your walls, decorative embellishments, curtains, and mirrors. Don’t forget to move items that are stored in the closet as well. 

Clarify Who Will Move Larger Items
With larger items, such as appliances and furniture, determine who will move them. Some installation crews include this service, but double check beforehand to eliminate misunderstandings and undue delays. In kitchens and areas that have gas appliances, arrange to have these items disconnected.

Determine Necessary Height Adjustment Changes
Most professional installers visit the renovation location before work begins to assess the site. During this time, make sure to inquire about changes in floor height. Depending upon the thickness of the strand woven bamboo, there may be necessary adjustments to doors and molding because of a difference in height. Doors may require shortening and molding may need to be changed due to these new factors. 

Ask About Appropriate Indoor Temperature
Many homeowners don’t realize how much indoor temperature and humidity can affect renovation materials, especially new strand woven bamboo floors. Check with your retailer or crew to verify the ideal indoor environment.
