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.

I am 100% satisfied with the professional craftsmanship and service Mark and Jessie provided as they worked on my upstairs hallways and my staircase.

His expertise and easy going demeanor will guarantee value for your investment. I would highly recommend Mark Chetwood for any wood flooring job.

This was our first experience with a major project at our new home and we took the time to research and study contractor reviews. We chose Strictly Wood over others due to a positive first impression and value in relation to other bidders. Once the work began, Mark and Jesse demonstrated professionalism and flexibility and we conducted daily walk-throughs to check on progress and discuss the work to be done on the following days. We replaced approximately 1,500 sq. ft. of carpet with hardwood floors and Mark and Jesse worked with us to minimize disruption in our home. Not only were they professional, but also personable and very easy to work with. Having contractors in one's home for several weeks could be intrusive, but it never felt that way with the Strictly Wood team. We are very happy with our new wood floors, and would highly recommend Strictly Wood to others seeking this type of work in their home.

Alfred and Olsen and their team were AMAZING! I have been delayed in writing this review for far too long. (I've been waiting to get new furniture before taking pictures) Let me first say that I am a Realtor® here in San Antonio (and have been working in the industry for 12 years). We hired them to complete a major renovation to a previously bank-owned home that we purchased to live in. The installed new porcelain wood-look tile in the bottom 1800 sq ft and new bamboo floors throughout the second story (and STAIRS!) which was approximately 1800 square feet as well. They painted the entire house (minus a couple bedrooms) both the walls and ceilings (a different color). They installed new (gorgeous) baseboards throughout the entire home. They painted the trim and all the tall doors throughout the house as well. They also installed new kitchen backsplash tile as well as a half-wall of tile in the half bathroom. Furthermore, they demo'd and redid the fireplace (with stacked quartzite and marble) as well as doing an entire wall (under the tall kitchen bar) with the same material. I feel certain I am forgetting something, but they really did so much and their work was so gorgeous. I need to have professional pictures taken, because their work is INCREDIBLE. Everyday, simply living in my house, reminds me of how amazing they were, how blessed I was to find them, and how much I miss seeing their smiling faces! Aside from working quickly and efficiently, they were so straightforward, honest and excellent at communicating. As with any renovation, there were speed bumps, but these minor hiccups were not at all the fault of Kasa. I purchased (through sheer ignorance on my part) the wrong type of flooring for my second floor, which we only realized after the special order 'stair nose' had FINALLY come in. We had to choose a different flooring, and wait another 3 weeks for the new stair nose (which was what was needed to start the second story floors). They only helped me and reassured me throughout this (and another) ordeal! Helping me to return 1800 sq ft of flooring, and pickup ANOTHER 1800 sq feet, without every asking for additional money to do so. These time delays no doubt cost them other jobs. TRUSTWORTHY! This is one of the top words that describe Kasa. I would feel comfortable with them watching my child, this is how much I trust them. With MOST contractors, you have to show up regularly and check in to make sure they are doing what they said they would do. NOT KASA, they worked long hours, through some weekends, and communicated regularly with updates. HIGH LEVEL OF WORKMANSHIP - The attention to detail is bar none! They have top quality tools, and they take great pride in their workmanship. So many contractors just look to get done quickly and make as much money as possible. Alfred and Olsen truly want their customer to have the highest quality end product. As a Realtor, who regularly sees every type of finish out (from your basic KB home to luxury custom homes) I can assure you, their quality is at the very top! I'm not sure I can put my contact here publicly. My name is Sarah Schaff though, and if you google me, I should come up. Please feel free to reach out to me and I am happy to tell you all about my experience More photos to follow shortly....
