Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a flooring professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To safely set up a consultation or appointment with a flooring professional and avoid the risk of transmitting COVID-19, start with an online search. Contact the professional through a message and ask to set up a video or phone call to discuss the project. This lets the professional visualize what needs to be done without physically needing to be there. Discuss the project’s timeline, budget, virtual payment capabilities and adherence to guidelines set forth locally and by the CDC.

Can I use digital payments to pay for floor installation, replacement or repairs?

Many local flooring professionals offer digital payments to conduct transactions for floor repairs, installation, replacement and more. This trend has been increasing during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is prompting flooring professionals to take payments through Venmo, Square Cash, PayPal, Google Pay, Zelle and other convenient platforms. 

To ensure you can safely pay for the service, contact the professional beforehand and ask which services are acceptable. Take any measures necessary to comply with guidelines on social distancing.

Do flooring professionals offer remote or virtual services?

Because flooring work has to be done in-person, flooring professionals are typically unable to perform work virtually. If you come across a pro's profile that states they're offering remote services, message the pro to see what those services include.

If you plan to get indoor flooring installed once the pandemic is over, you can ask potential flooring specialists if they host virtual consultations through video calls and digital messaging. Compare flooring professionals in your area online to find the right fit, and book an appointment.

Does a flooring professional need to enter my home?

If the flooring project is located inside your residence, performing the job would require the flooring professional to enter your home. This is not recommended by the CDC during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, if a flooring project takes place in a separate location outside of your home, the flooring professional will not need to enter your home. 

Talk to flooring professionals in your area to see if it’s necessary for them to enter your home. If so, you might want to postpone the project until social distancing guidelines are relaxed by the government.

How can I find out if a flooring professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a flooring professional is considered an essential service in the current coronavirus pandemic, consult your city or state’s government website. To get a sense of the national recommendations, check CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage

This page lists 16 different infrastructure sectors that are officially considered essential during this time. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. Ultimately, you should consult with your local government. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a flooring professional when social distancing?

If you hire a flooring professional for an outdoor project, you may be able to avoid person-to-person contact with the pro. If you hire a pro for an indoor job, avoid physical contact, sanitize surfaces and use virtual payments like PayPal, Venmo, Google Pay and Square Cash App to complete transactions instead of using cash or checks. Determine a strategy with the flooring professional when you contact them.

What are the different types of flooring I can install in my home?

Here are four popular types of flooring you can install in your home. 

Solid wood flooring:

Solid wood flooring is made up of 100% wood, and has a very natural look and feel. It can add value to your home and. It can resist wear and tear, and be sanded and refinished multiple times. However, solid wood is susceptible to humidity and water damage. When it’s humid, solid wood could expand and if there’s a flood, it will be hard for the wood to return to its natural shape.

Laminate flooring:

Laminate wood flooring is an artificial product that mimics real wood flooring. Its core consists of fiberboard material, topped by an image print layer and sealed with a clear protective film. Laminate flooring is UV-resistant and less expensive than solid hardwood (approximately $3 to $7 per square foot to install). However, it also has a lower-quality feel, is unable to be sanded and refinished, has a lifespan of around 25 years and will invariably have a repeated print, according to Consumer Reports

A laminate hardwood floor is popular in living areas like dining rooms and kitchens. Their quality has improved dramatically in recent years, making them an attractive alternative to more expensive flooring types. Laminate flooring can also be scratch-prone, easy to clean and maintain, and resistant to moisture. 

Vinyl flooring:

Vinyl flooring is made completely out of PVC plastic and is an excellent option for moisture-prone areas like bathrooms and kitchens. It is durable, comfortable and inexpensive. Vinyl plank flooring and vinyl floor tiles can also imitate stone, tile and wood. However, it is fairly easy to spot vinyl flooring as synthetic. Install luxury vinyl plank and sheet vinyl flooring in areas where moisture is a concern.

Engineered wood flooring:

Engineered wood flooring often has a plywood-core substrate and a genuine hardwood veneer as its uppermost layer. Engineered wood floors are more impervious to humidity than regular hardwood, meaning that it’s less likely to expand, warp and buckle, according to Consumer Reports. However, it can dent easily. The best engineered hardwood has a thicker veneer, as well as a quality that allows it to be sanded down and refinished to increase its lifespan. It can be as durable as solid hardwood, and it’s often an affordable choice for many homeowners.

What is the best flooring for dogs?

Waterproof or scratch-resistant flooring is typically the best flooring for dogs. This includes: 

  • Vinyl: Vinyl may not add much to the value of your home, but it is resistant to scratching, stains, dents and accidents. Plus, it’s an affordable option.
  • Tile: Tile is generally water-resistant and scratch-proof, and more affordable than hardwood or stone.
  • Laminate: Laminate is not truly waterproof, but it is tough and often more scratch-resistant than other wood floorings. 

Remember that solid hardwood is susceptible to damage, including dents, scratching, licking and accidents. But if you want to install wood floors, the best hardwood floors for dogs are typically made out of maple, Brazilian walnut or bamboo.

Here are some examples of floor installation costs, depending on the material:

How do you clean hardwood, concrete, vinyl and laminate floors?

After you get new floors installed in your home, make sure you maintain them. Use these tips to keep your floors clean, shiny and polished. 

How to Clean Concrete Floors

Start by sweeping or vacuuming the entire surface to remove loose debris. Mopping will require different substances based on the type of concrete floor. For a polished concrete floor, use a specialized polished concrete cleaner. For a painted concrete floor, use a mild all-purpose cleaner. A sealed concrete floor can be cleaned with dishwashing liquid, while an unsealed floor is best cleaned with trisodium phosphate and stain removers. Use kitty litter or cornstarch for grease stains, and distilled white vinegar for rust stains. 

For more tips on how to clean and maintain your concrete floors, consult with your professional concrete flooring contractor.

How to Clean Hardwood Floors

Cleaning hardwood floors typically requires a mop, bucket and some type of hardwood floor cleaner. Start by removing furniture and objects. Vacuum up all debris (or use a dust mop), moving with the grain. Spray your cleaner on a small section of the floor, and mop in a figure-eight motion, working backward. Make sure there are no puddles. 

In high-traffic areas, you should mop one or two times per week. Low-traffic areas should be mopped at least once per month. 

To ensure you're cleaning and maintaining your hardwood floors properly, speak with your hardwood flooring installation specialist.

How to Clean Laminate Floors:

Start by vacuuming to remove dust, dirt and other debris. The best mop for laminate floors is a microfiber mop with a sprayer feature. Spray and mop one small area at a time to avoid standing liquid on the floor. Go over the floor with a dry microfiber cloth after mopping to make sure all liquid is gone. 

Although you can use a damp mop, never use a wet mop on laminate floors. Moisture can cause the flooring to bubble, swell and buckle. Instead, use a dedicated laminate floor mop with a laminate floor cleaner spray. The best mop for laminate floors is typically made with microfiber, which picks up dirt and absorbs moisture well.

Consulting with your laminate flooring installer is a good idea if you've never had laminate floors and need more tips on how to clean them properly.

How to Clean Vinyl Floors

Cleaning vinyl plank flooring is easy. Start by sweeping and vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris. Then use a damp — not wet — mop or rag with warm water. While vinyl is waterproof, an excessive amount of water can leak between the seams and affect the glue bond with the floor. When you feel a chemical is needed, make sure to choose cleaning products safe for vinyl planks.

Reach out to your vinyl flooring installer for tips on how to further maintain and care for your vinyl floors.

Reviews for Miramar wood floor contractors
Thumbtack Customer
REAL DETAILED REVIEW: This is an HONEST review. If the owner Jose replies it will be a bunch of excuses. Do not believe him. I've had to learn the hard way. I'm VERY fair and unbiased regardless of how bad a business treats me. You will get the positives and negatives. Ever since I moved to South Florida, I've noticed that alot of contractors are extremely unprofessional in so many ways. I feel you have to run after them to get things done. Do what you say you're going to do! Background: I live alone. No kids. This is important to point out. No playing around the house. Clean household. Save the excuses. JOB: Property: Townhouse - Just got my entire kitchen remodeled and new washer/dryer. I hired my long time multi-service handy man that previously installed my patio tiile, closet doors, installed wood frames upstairs (carpenter work) and some plumbing. I asked if he would be able to do tongue and groove flooring and he stated that he could. He's done everything else perfect, he's professional, nice attitude, he shows up and on time. Well during installation I realized that he and his rep were doing an AWFUL job. They finished half way. I decided to pay them $400 ($650 total estimate), due to labor (ughh I'm a nice aka sucker type of person lol) and fired them. I had THREE new UNused boxed left. LOOKING FOR CONTRACTOR: Chose Thumbtask.com and found this company that had good review except for one review. When I texted and called Jose from the beginning it was hard to get a response. When I finally connected with him he and his rep showed up and I pointed out how bad the previous work was done and can they help finish up the job. Of course they pointed out the bad work done, stated that I need to go buy 1 extra box since I already had 3 new boxes left, and that they would TRY to save some of the already used pieces depending on their condition. Estimate $750 for remove/installation, baseboard and molding for kitchen. So that's $400 down the drain from previous work, now another $750 to basically start all over again and purchasing another new box of wood. $1,600 for material. They came that following Saturday. I APPRECIATE that fast turnaround time. I bought the extra box per request. I have that receipt Jose. Jose also stated that the job would take 4 hours but it took 9 HOURS. I pay attention to everything. So at the end his reps told me that they were able to use all NEW material until they got to my kitchen and laundry room. They said that they reused the decent material for the my kitchen and laundry room. Jose stated the same thing. Jose did show up to bring them lunch. His reps mentioned that they removed my laundry room door however they could not install it BACK. Not too happy about that. That was Joses SECOND time to my house. _____________________________________ By the end of the day, I was exhausted. I sent the following email: Date: 10/15/2017 Floor Installation Service completed: 10/14/2017 Good morning Jose! Again, thank you so much for coming out to install my floors yesterday. Your reps did a great job however I noticed a few issues late last night and wanted to see if you can get this corrected whenever your schedule permits. 1. Last night I tried closing my bedroom door and I was unable to close it due to the threshold. I attached a photo of my door of how far it will go. So I decided to check the guest bedroom door and while it closed fine it struggled a little to open back up. Not only that the carpet to threshold ratio is off. You can still see the white tile. I have attached that photo. It looks tacky and if I can see it my guest will too. There was no threshold in place before installation. It was always tile to carpet. 2. Now while your reps were here and we were walking around I cringed when I saw that bright white caulk around my stairs but I thought that perhaps it's the caulk that goes on white but turns clear. As you can see in the photos attached that's not the case this morning. It's a sore eye. Can you get something like a beige color to color the caulk or something? It (bright white color) wasn't there or visible before this. 3. The baseboard with the deep chips and scratches all over that looks USED and needs to be replaced. It's a little over 30 inches wide. She photos attached. 4. Now I remember when you first came that you asked me about the door in the washer and dryer room and I stated that Lowes delivery reps took it down, it was supposed to go between the walls and that I was going to have someone put it back up. Well your rep that was with you that day pointed to the door and apologized that he put baseboard between those walls and now the door is not going to fit. This will be another expense for me but just pointing this out. Again, thank you so much and I look forward to a follow-up concerning these issues. Sincerely, _________________________________ Jose responded that day (shockingly) and stated that this was minor and "Can u please let me know when closet door is installed so i cam send my guys go over those things? If not its impossible to cut base the right size in that area and that way we can all done in one visit." Well it cost me $80 to install the door and to cut the baseboard. Another expense that could have been voided. So Jose showed up for the third time and I'm thinking that he was going to fix everything right then. Noooo just to point out the mistakes even though I sent him PHOTOS. Worthless visit. He also wanted to pat himself on the back for "saving" the day and how bad the multi-service handy guy was BUT just wait....According to my records for the 10 days after that email I had a hard time getting a response from him via text. The chase..........His NICE and professional rep came and fixed "minor" issues. There was a charge of $35 to shave my bedroom door. I paid that and gave him a $10 tip. _______________________________________________________________ Sooooo after that was done, I discovered something else and sent the following email: "Hi Jose, I meant to text you today but forgot so I'm emailing b/c it's too late to text...I was hoping that the last visit was the final visit however last night I came home last night and discovered this space between flooring in front of my oven. I just happened to look down and saw this line and I bent down to get a close look and there's visible space between flooring. I have attached 3 photos. It's in front of my oven. Should I get some extra pieces or can it be fixed with whats there? Im not sure what happened but you did say the bad pieces went either in my washer room or the kitchen. No rush but please let me know how we can get this fixed and hopefully for good. Thanks and have a great weekend!" See photos attached by the oven and also the "new" baseboard (previously mentioned via email) that's all chipped up. NO RESPONSE soooooooo I had to get my parents involved since WE own the property. My mom called him since Jose responds WHEN HE FEELS LIKE IT (unprofessional) and while I was horrified that they were going back and forth but they came to an agreement that his reps would show up YESTERDAY Dec 16, 2017 and 9:30am. There would be $150 charge for labor. He also stated for me to buy more boxes and to keep one extra box for future use. No problem. During my mom and Joses discussion there were a few lies told. Jose stated that he's showed up 4 times. No you showed up for the initial estimate (1), brought your reps LUNCH (2) and a wasted visit to point out the errors that I already sent a photo of (3). Not my problem! That's your JOB. You stated that I had NO new boxes left at the start of the job and that I stated that I didnt have the money to buy anymore. Sir, I had 3 NEW boxes left and YOU stated for me to buy one more box (total of 4) and that you would TRY to save the rest of the material. I have the receipt of the extra box of material per your request. $1600 worth of material was originally purchased. Don't act like I was just down in the dumps and had not spent NO money on material and wasted $400 with the other job. I purchased FOUR extra boxes. $369 from Floor and Decor. So while waiting a week for the repairs I discovered another area OUTSIDE of my kitchen and laundry room. Under the stairs (NEW material used) where the wood looks like it's peeled up and spacing next to it. See photos attached. No one goes under my stairs. What is the EXCUSE now for that Jose???? Sloppy work! Now impressed! I was going to point this out for the final visit yesterday but............ NO ONE SHOWED UP. NOT one phone call. My mom called and texted Jose. No response. I was told to go to a competitors site which shall not be mentioned here where you have to be licensed, top rated, verified professional reviews and one of the industry's most comprehensive screening processes. I did my research and will have them come out to point out Joses mistakes and repair. MORE HARD EARNED MONEY THAT I HAVE TO SPEND FOR OTHERS MISTAKES. I hope you sleep well at night. POSITIVES: His reps were SO NICE and professional (besides the bathroom issue...see below in the "negatives" section). I had cold drinks for them and played music. LOL Great workers! The fact that you were able to come in quickly after the initial estimate when you had other jobs. I APPRECIATE that. NEGATIVES: Jose, has a cocky Napolean complex vibe about him. Huge ego. Fast talker. He tries his best to be nice but it screams the opposite. If your reps want to use the customers bathroom as a work area ASK FIRST. I was horrified when I saw cut up wood, shavings from the wood all over my guest bathroom. I stated to use my nice size screened in patio for all work. If you're going to remove something like a door and know that you can't install it back, let the customer know first. If you're going to be late, call and let the customer know.
