Avoiding Fees and Charges for Unnecessary Added Services.



Removing and Replacing Appliances


Before the vinyl installers arrive to put in your new floors, your maintenance person should move the appliances out of the areas that are being replaced. 


It is a good idea to move them out of the apartment if possible, giving the installer room to work. 


The vinyl installer will charge you to move them if you donít, and this is one area you can easily save money.



Removing and Replacing Toilets


The toilets should be removed also, it is another charge you can avoid. Have the maintenance person carefully set the toilet inside the bath tub or shower. It will be out of the way and quick and easy to replace after the new flooring is laid. After re-installing the toilet with a new wax ring, white silicone caulk should be applied around the base of the toilet leaving a small 3 inch area in the very back of the base free of caulking. 


In the event of a toilet leak, the area in the very back of the toilet will allow the water to escape onto the floor and become noticeable. This is your early warning system. It gives you a fighting chance to discover and fix a small problem before it becomes a large one.



Removing Old Carpet and Pad


When having carpeting installed you might want to consider having your maintenance people remove the old carpet and pad in order to save you money. Carpet installers charge per yard to remove the old carpet and pad. 


If you have it removed before the installers arrive you will save a lot of money in the long run. Your maintenance people must be thorough, leaving the floors clean and completely free of all carpet & pad, the unit swept clean and completely ready to go.
