Why is Springtime the Best Time To Replace Your Home Flooring?

Residents of the mountain town of Payson and all of Rim Country know of the excitement that comes from the arrival of Spring. With the cold winter behind us and sunny days on the way we can look forward to great days on the lake and finally getting to those home renovations we have been planning for months. If you’ve been eying a design refresh or room remodel, Spring may be the perfect season to finish your project since it’s prime time for new flooring.

Did you know that spring and fall allow the fastest, most complete flooring acclimation with the least risk of problems? Most homes in Arizona are very unlikely to experience extreme humidity during the spring, we can help you take advantage of this time with the wide-ranging styles found in our Mountain Home Interiors showroom on Main Street in Payson, Arizona. Here are a few important reasons you should consider replacing your flooring this spring.

Humidity & Temperature

It is extremely important that new flooring becomes acclimated to the indoor environment it is being installed in, especially for hardwood flooring, but significant for and luxury vinyl planks as well. Springtime in Rim Country presents perfect outdoor temperatures and humidity levels that will allow planks to properly adjust to the weather with minimal change. If humidity levels are really low, planks can dry out, shrink, crack, and pull apart. If humidity levels are higher than normal, planks will absorb moisture and swell. Putting down new floors in springtime conditions will provide proper installation and a faster acclimation.

Open Doors

For most homeowners understanding just how many doors in the house will need to remain open during new flooring installation is quite a surprise. Old flooring will be leaving the home, new flooring coming inside, gathering tools and supplies for installation, Mountain Home Interiors installers will be going back and forth frequently. During the warm Arizona summer months leaving your door open for hours can be quite costly when trying to run your AC. Utilize the refreshing spring temperatures and have your doors open for new flooring when it’s comfortable to do so.

Natural Light

The first part of your the flooring design process is picking out the perfect flooring options for your home. Use the sunny spring rays to gauge the different look for your potential flooring options and what they will look like in a specific room. If the room or rooms receiving new flooring feature large windows or receive ample natural light, you will want to bring in flooring samples to get a true look at the color, design, and texture of your favorite styles. Sunlight in winter and fall may not be as full during spring and summer, so use the spring season to decide if the look you loved online is the best fit in your residence.

Ventilation & Fresh Air

New flooring installation can bring fumes, odors, and dust. With your brand new floors finally installed the last thing you will want to do is be pushed out of your home due to smells or dust. In order to mitigate the smell of new flooring, including fumes of adhesive removers, stains, and sealers, you will need to create proper ventilation by opening doors and windows. During the first 72 hours after the new flooring installation, you will want to let in as much fresh air as you can.
