Nothing’s ever easy the first time — and the same could be said about your flooring project. If you’re unsure where to start when you hire a flooring contractor, the whole process can seem unnecessarily intimidating.

But that’s where we come in. We’re here to shed some light on this process, and hopefully, make things a bit easier for you too.

Here’s what you should ask any Ohio flooring company before you start work on your flooring project.

1. What’s your timeline for the project?

After getting a sense of what kind of project you’ll need them for, the best flooring professionals should already have a general idea of how much time they’ll need to complete your project.

They should also give you more than just the start and end date of your project. They should also be able to provide details like what part of the process will take place when, and how long each part will take.

2. Who will be present on-site while the project takes place?

It’s common knowledge in the industry that flooring companies will sometimes ask subcontractors to help them out with their work. However, if they do this for your project, it may be confusing for you to find who to talk to in case an accident or project delay takes place.

Ask your flooring company to outline who will be on-site every day of the project, and who you can talk to on each of those days for updates and other project news. You’ll also want to know who is responsible for opening and closing each day of work on the project, as well as who will be directly responsible for the team working on-site.

3. What kind of industry training and accreditation has your team received?

It’s important to know the kind of people you’ll be working with, and what kind of experience they have in their line of work. And because you’re paying for great work, you’ll also want to look for someone with at least two to five years of experience in the work you’re asking them to do. After all, you wouldn’t want a pediatrician to operate on your heart, would you?

Asking them about their training and accreditations also allows you to see if they’ve kept up with their training and are well-versed on the latest best practices of the industry — all valuable things you’ll want to know about!

4. Will any aftercare cleaning products and cleaning care instructions be provided?

Floor care isn’t a one and done deal. Regular care and maintenance on your part will help to make sure your floors look great for years to come, and ideally, will lengthen the time you need between professional maintenance appointments.

The best companies will offer you cleaning products to maintain the look and shine of your hardwood floors — or at the very least, instructions to help you take care of your new floors.
