Heating & Electricity
Have your home temperature at a minimum of 65 degrees during installation
This will ensure that new carpet and vinyl is protected.
Please make sure electric outlets are turned on; installers will need electricity for power tools during some jobs.
Our installers will need your help moving your fragile belongings.
Please take care to move breakables:
- tops of hutches
- top of furniture
Pictures, wall hangings and floor-length draperies may interfere with the installers’ movements.
Please remove draperies or tie them back at least 36 inches above the floor.
Closets and storage areas need to be cleared, and long-hanging clothing needs to be removed to provide a 36-inch space to enable the installers to work freely.
We gladly handle the moving of regular furniture during installation. This service can be arranged through your Flooring America sales professional and may require an additional charge.
Some items that require special handling include:
- Grandfather Clocks
- Console Pianos
Please note: Pool tables, grand pianos and wood stoves must be handled by professionals and should be moved prior to installation.
Appliances & Electronics
Some appliances may require special handling. Arrangements for disconnection and hookups of icemakers, gas appliances, commodes, or alarm systems should be made prior to installation. Stereos, computers and other electronic equipment should also be moved before the time of installation.
