GETTING ACCLIMATED

When installing carpeting or (particularly) wood flooring in new construction, it is important the flooring material has time to adjust to its new surroundings. Consequently, experienced installers are careful to allow wood plants enough time to acclimate to the temperature and humidity levels of their intended location. With the indoor environment carefully insulated from sudden heat/humidity fluctuations, it can take several days for wood flooring to adapt to the point where post-installation shrinkage and expansion can be avoided. Carpeting also needs time to similarly adjust. Moreover, in cases where wood flooring overlies radiant-heat flooring systems, care must be taken not to change thermostat-controlled temperatures too drastically. The beauty of radiant heat is that it is steady and even. Do you have any questions about how fluctuations in temperature and humidity might affect carpet or flooring? At LIBERTY CARPRT, our expert staff members will be happy to help you understand the best way to keep your floor looking great, including how to use radiant-floor heating to prevent shrinking or buckling. And we use our own installation teams, to ensure that your floors go in smoothly and stay flat, no matter what the temperature. Drop in to our showroom at 628 Main Street, Hallstead. Or you can call 570-879-4567 to learn more. We’re open Mon.-Fri. 9-5:30, Sat., 9-4, or by appointment. HINT: Installation of tile flooring requires ambient temperatures that are high enough to ensure proper adhesion to the subfloor.
