The Floor Store at The Carpet Company is dedicated to informing customers about things that can impact their decision in choosing new flooring. Flooring is one of the most-often remodeled items in a home! Whether it’s carpet, tile, laminate, luxury vinyl tile (LVT), or hardwood, our flooring makes a statement, so doing it right is important. But when is the best time to install new flooring? The fall months are the ideal time!

Some new flooring materials such as laminates, hardwoods, and luxury vinyl tiles will need to acclimate a day or two inside the home before being laid. Our team will stack them out of the way so that you still have access to your home’s living space. When any type of flooring is being laid, your doors may need to be open as workers enter and exit, or to allow the odor from some sealants to dissipate. Most products now are low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) and don’t give off heavy fumes. Because the fall temperatures in the Albuquerque area are so pleasant, having doors or windows open won’t affect your cooling bill or your comfort level.

Autumn offers a mixture of temperatures and humidity, which is needed when you are installing hardwood flooring. Hardwoods can be temperamental. Real hardwood flooring needs time to adjust to your home’s environment, it also needs some humidity and cooler temperatures. If the humidity is too low or too high, your new hardwood flooring can experience cracking and warping. This can be a costly mistake. Our team of professional installers will consider all environmental factors in installing a hardwood floor during any other season. We install thousands of floors a year right here in our New Mexico climate and have a long track record of happy customers!
