If you’ve been thinking about a floor replacement but are not sure where to start, look no further. Here at Techflooring, we want to help you pick out the best flooring for your home. However, it can be tricky to know when it needs replacing and what options are available. We’ve put together a few FAQs to help you decide whether your flooring needs replacing.
How do I know if my floor needs replacing?
There are common signs to tell if your floor needs replacing. These include:
- If the room smells musty. This could be a sign of water damage to the floor and should definitely be replaced
- Your floors are uneven or sunken in parts
- If your floor is squeaking loudly
- Floors that shift or bounce too much underfoot
- Your floor is bubbling
- Excessive stains that don’t scrub off
Of course, there are other reasons to change your flooring. You might fancy a change or you could be re-vamping your house. Replacing your floor is a great way to treat yourself and your home. If you own property that is rented out, a lease coming to an end is a great opportunity to replace your floors.

How do I prepare my subfloor for my new flooring?
The first thing you’ll want to do when prepping your subfloor is to deep clean it. Start by sweeping up any loose debris or dirt. Then go over the subfloor with a hoover. The next step is to mop the subfloor. You can use just water or add a little cleaning solution. A great tip is to use two mops- one for cleaning and one for rinsing.
What new flooring should I choose?
This very much depends on what room you are looking at. Vinyl is very water resistant and so is often used in kitchens and bathrooms. Laminate is great if you’re on a budget and looks great in hallways and living rooms. If you’re looking for something more similar to traditional wooden floors, luxury vinyl tiling is a brilliant option. If you’re interested in carpet, we offer wool and nylon options that can suit any home.
