Preparing Floor for a Hardwood Flooring Installation

Install Wood Flooring in NYCEven when a professional flooring contractor is completing your hardwood flooring installation, you’ll still need to prepare your subfloor. Preparing your subfloor for flooring installation ensures that your new wood flooring will lie flat, and remain stable, durable, and safe. The first thing you’ll need to do is thoroughly clean the subfloor with an electric belt sander to remove any paint, oil, wax, adhesive, or sealers. After sanding, vacuum off any dust and debris.

Repair any loose or squeaky boards in the subfloor by adhering them securely to the floor joists. If your wood flooring doesn’t have an underlayment attached to the bottom of the flooring, you will need to place one on your subfloor. An underlayment and moisture barrier prevent your hardwood flooring from warping or becoming damaged.
