Secrets of Flooring Revealed

Take advantage of these tips and insights from Austin’s go-to flooring experts.
Flooring Selection
Here are just a few things to keep in mind when choosing a floor.
When the time comes to select new flooring for your Austin or Georgetown area home, there are three things Floor King would like you to consider: what the installation area of your home is used for, how much your budget allows and what style best fits your needs and aesthetic tastes?

First, it’s important that you take the time to ensure the flooring you want is not only appropriate in terms of aesthetics and cohesiveness, but that it’s a practical option for the area in which it will be installed (because let’s face it, carpet in the bathroom is never a good idea). 

Second, make sure you don’t overextend yourself in terms of what you can afford – take the time to compare a number of different styles and materials to ensure you find a floor that won’t hurt your wallet.

Flooring Installation
Follow these tips for a painless installation.
At Floor King, we use the best installation crew in the business. Here are a few tips to make sure your flooring installation goes as smoothly as possible:
  1. Determine who will be responsible for moving your furniture.  
  2. Ask your friendly installer about whether or not he/she can dispose of your existing flooring. 
  3. Ensure all seams are installed in more discrete, less visible areas of the room. 
  4. Take measures to provide an adequate supply of fresh air during the entirety of the installation.  
Flooring Maintenance
We’ll help you keep your floors looking as good as new.
Unfortunately, modern science has yet to develop a maintenance-free floor. However, by following these few simple suggestions, you can keep your floors looking good:
  1. Vacuum often, as it helps prevent dirt from becoming deeply embedded.  
  2. Be sure you tackle any and all stains immediately – the longer they sit untouched, the better chance they have of setting permanently. Blot all spills lightly with a towel or napkin, apply a solvent (if necessary) and gently rinse the area with water, making sure you don’t rub the affected area too vigorously.  
  3. Hire a professional carpet and/or floor cleaner once every two years, at the very least.
