Flooring Installation

How Long Does Flooring Installation Take?

The time it takes to install flooring varies depending on the space and the type of flooring being installed. When you request an initial consultation, we can provide you with a more accurate time estimate once we have the necessary information. Rest assured, our experienced team at Y’s Way Flooring can make quick work of any project.

How Can I Prepare for Flooring Installation?

When planning to have new flooring installed, it’s important first to make sure that all furniture and valuables are removed from the room. Furthermore, if there are any closets in the space, you will likely need to remove any belongings from there as well. You may also want to check if the new height of the floor could impact the ability to open or close the doors in the room.

If new flooring is being installed in your kitchen, you will need to have appliances moved and any gas appliances disconnected. If necessary, contact a professional to have these moved and disconnected.

It may also be beneficial to clean the room, ensuring no debris, dirt, or dust can contaminate the new flooring or prevent it from being installed properly.

Can New Flooring Be Installed Over Old Flooring?

If you are considering installing new flooring over old flooring, there are several factors to take into consideration. If the old flooring is structurally sound and level, there is no asbestos in the flooring, and the new flooring option can suitably cover the new flooring, then it may be possible to install new flooring over the existing. Another factor to consider is if the additional flooring could impact the floor height and affect the trim and doors.

However, in most cases, it’s better to remove the old flooring to prevent any issues with the new flooring.

Carpet Installation

How Do I Care for My Newly Installed Carpet?

After having your carpet installed, give it an initial vacuum. You may notice a large amount of short fibers coming from your carpet in the first few weeks. Don’t be alarmed, as this is completely normal. Be sure to vacuum your carpets one to three times a week, depending on the amount of traffic in your home.

Invest in mats to collect dirt and debris when you enter your home. This can prevent a majority of the dirt that often ends up collecting on your carpet. Be sure to keep the mats clean to prevent dirt from spreading to the carpet. It may also be beneficial to start a new policy of no shoes on in the house.

Clean up stains as soon as they occur. Be sure to blot–not rub–any spills, and do not overuse water when cleaning your carpet.

Custom Shower Installation

What Are the Benefits of a Custom Shower Installation?

The bathroom is an intimate part of your home, so why not design it specifically for you? A custom shower installation allows you to design a bathroom that is both functional and beautiful. For example, those with disabilities may find it difficult to use their shower, which can put their safety at risk. By designing the shower specifically to suit their needs, they can feel more secure and comfortable in their home.

A custom shower can also be beneficial for those who are looking to elevate their bathroom by adding an additional sink for their spouse or changing the tile to suit their style.

Consider the possibilities when you take advantage of our custom shower services in Watertown, WI .
