The process of getting your new flooring properly acclimated is quite simple:
Check job site conditions
The area’s temperature and humidity conditions area critical.
Check weather conditions before having the floors delivered:
There’s a very good chance that if new hardwood flooring is delivered during a damp or rainy day, they will absorb moisture. Similarly, if floors are installed under these conditions, you can expect some shrinking and cracking within a few months after installation.
Check if drywall, plastering and painting have been completed:
Moisture evaporates from damp walls straight into the air inside the house, and some of this will definitely be absorbed by the new flooring floor. Do not have your floors delivered until after paint is completely dry.
Check the ambient humidity at the job site
In many cases, installation will be done when the occupants of the house are away and when heating or cooling is turned off. This results in a differential humidity level than when occupants of the house are at home and the heater or air conditioner is turned on. The goal of acclimatizing floors is to let it adjust to normal living conditions; you should make the necessary adjustments.
