Why Spring is the Best Time to Replace Flooring
When you’re having new flooring installed the doors will be open a lot. Installers will be walking in and out. Old flooring will be carried outside and new flooring will be brought in. During the cold winter months, all the in and out can dramatically cool your home, and in the summer your home could heat up, causing your AC to work overtime. Spring brings milder weather, resulting in a more comfortable and energy efficient install.
Secondly, you may want to keep your windows open for ventilation to get rid of new floor fumes and odors. When installing certain types of flooring floor adhesive, adhesive removers, stains and sealers can emit noxious fumes and odors that you will want to alleviate as soon as possible through open windows and fresh air.
Certain types of flooring such as hardwood and laminate need to acclimate in your home for 48 to 72 hours prior to being properly installed. This means they need to take on the humidity level and temperature found indoors. If they don’t problems such as buckling can arise. Humidity and temperatures are more moderate in the Spring. In the summer, outdoor humidity may be 75% to 90% or higher. Spring allows the fastest and most complete acclimation with the least risk of problems because homes are not likely to have either very high or very low humidity.
