Floor acclimation may not seem like a vital step, but it is actually important. The flooring that might need acclimation could be hardwood floors that are unfinished and even some engineered wood. It's a good rule of thumb to include this step with any type of flooring.
The acclimation process begins when the floor planks are temporarily placed. The installers will allow the wood to breathe in the atmosphere to acclimate properly. Floors, especially natural floors, change slightly in accordance with the temperature in the region. This means the floors need to get used to the natural atmosphere in your home before they are set properly. Your floors should last longer with this step.
Surely we’re all familiar with what can happen if you don’t have flooring that can withstand water. No matter how fast you can wipe it up, the liquid will quickly seep down into the floor, leading to staining, warping, mold and even damaging the ceilings below in extreme circumstances. If you’re looking at installing new flooring, consider the options available to you in both traditional and newly developed surfaces! You may end up waterproofing your whole house!
