When speaking with your flooring installer, or reading your installation instructions, you may learn that you need to acclimate your flooring before you install your laminate flooring.
How Long Do I Acclimate My Flooring?
The recommended time for acclimation is 48 to 72 hours.
Why is the Time so Long?
The reason for this acclimation time is to allow the flooring to acclimate to the room temperature. Be sure that while this process is taking place, you have the room temperature set between 59°F to 68°F with a relative humidity of 50%-60%. Acclimation time may depend on the manufacture brand, so be sure to refer to the installation instructions to find the acclimation hours, room temperature, and relative humidity recommendation specific to your flooring brand.
