My wife and I recently decided we were going to carpet our living room downstairs, and the majority of our upstairs because we have a toddler that has been falling a lot around the house and our house is over 100 years old, completely hardwood floor, and that wood probably hadn't been finished in 50 years...see more reviews...

Under dated carpet and decades old padding, my home had a secret...beautiful red oak hardwood flooring that needed to be restored to its original glory. Jimmie (and Edgar and Edgar's crew) did just that. They finished a day earlier than scheduled. I couldn't be more pleased with the results!see more reviews...

We have had Blake Stephens from the Grove store install flooring in most of our home, and thanks to the flooding in Grove, we will be having him replace the carpet in our bedrooms. Everyone loves the wood look flooring he helped us choose. Very pleased with the quality and durability. Installation was excellent. My husband also has a small construction company and he recommends Blake and Mill Creek for all his flooring projects.see more reviews...

My wife and I bought carpet at Mill Creek in Tulsa and had one of the best buying experience thanks to salesperson Ann Murphy. She also followed up to ensure everything was completed. The installation people were very professional and did a fantastic job! Would recommend Mill Creek and Ann Murphy!!see more reviews...
Depending on the manufacturer these guidelines may vary:
The floor covering, adhesive, and room temperature must be kept with in a temperature range of 65°F to 100°F for at least 48 hours before, and 48 hours after installation. In certain cases where epoxy adhesive is used, the temperature should not exceed 85°F.
The flooring material should be allowed to acclimate to the temperature of the area it will be installed for at least 48 hours in advance.
Start with a clean jobsite, a prepared subfloor and remove any items that may damage a finished installation. Substrates must be dry, clean, smooth, and free from paint, varnish, wax, oils, solvents, adhesive from former flooring and other foreign matter.
A properly prepared subfloor is important because the wrong type can telegraph through the new floor. This will not only be unattractive, but it will cause uneven wearing. Underlayment panels are intended to provide a smooth working surface, but are not designed to correct or properly cover structural deficiencies.
Some types of nails, such as common steel nails, cement coated or someresin or rosin coated nails, may cause a discolor-ation of the vinyl floor covering. Use only non-staining fasteners with underlayment panels.
Before getting started, check each box to make sure it is the right style, color and pattern number. Then, be sure to check and make sure the dye lot numbers are the same on each box. It is best to know if a box does not match in the beginning in order to give you time to get a replacement. If there are many boxes that are not the same, you may need to return the entire shipment.
Once you have checked all of the cartons, mix tiles or planks from each carton to minimize shade variation.
Read the manufacturers installation instructions to see if your subfloor is suitable to install the new product over. Often, resilient products should never be installed over residual asphalt type or cut back adhesive. It can bleed through onto the new flooring. All of the adhesive needs to be removed or properly covered before proceeding with the installation.
The manufacturer’s recommended adhesive should always be used in order to maintain the manufacturers warranty.
When installing, be careful and precise measurements must be taken during tile layout. Lay all tiles in the same direction, all directional arrows pointing in the same direction. With plank layout it is also important to balance the layout of the plank format. Proper planning and layout will revent narrow plank widths at wall junctures. Accurately easure the room todetermine the center line, adjust this stablished line to accommodate a balanced lay out and then transpose this line to a comfortable width away from the starting wall (approximately 2’ to 3’ wide). Apply the adhesive in this area and begin installing planks.
When determining the proper layout for mixing tile and planks for custom installations it is important to consider overall pattern and concept before getting started. The pattern should be carefully calculated and laid out for a successful installation.
When the installation is complete, most floors must be rolled with a minimum 100 pound three-section floor roller immediately after installation. Roll the flooring in both directions to firmly seat the tile into the adhesive.
Depending on the manufacturer these guidelines may vary:
After installation, furniture and foot traffic should not be on the floor for at least 24 hours. This allows the adhesive to dry completely.
After installation, the floors should also not be washed for 48 hours.
The adhesive residue on the floors after installation can be removed with mineral spirits.
Floor covering subjected to excessive heat and light exposure is subject to thermal degradation. Use appropriate precautions to minimize potential affects on the floor covering.
Oil or petroleum based products can result in surface staining. Do not track asphalt driveway sealer or automobile oil drips onto the vinyl floor covering.
During the life of the floor, the temperature should never drop below 55°F
