ACCLIMATION/CONDITIONING OF THE FLOORING After harvesting, engineered wood flooring is kiln-dried for optimum service. Wood is hygroscopic, meaning its size and shape changes with the absorption or release of moisture. The amount of change varies with wood species, cut, and type of flooring. Therefore, controlling wood moisture content (mc) is important for success. First, acclimate the new flooring inside the home in consistent indoor temperatures of 60°-80° F and indoor humidity levels of 30% - 50%.
Please refer to your flooring installation instructions.
