Acclimating Wood Floor

This is a stage that you perform before you lay your floorboards. The acclimation process will minimize shrinking and swelling with temperature and humidity changes. All hardwood flooring needs to acclimate to the conditions and temperature of your house before it can be installed. This means that your wood floors need to reach the same temperature and moisture level as the internal environment of your house. The acclimation process requires a minimum of 72 hours or 3 days from most wood floor manufacturers. However, we suggest a minimum of one week or several weeks if you want to achieve the best results possible.
