- Move all breakables such as lamps, vases, china, mirrors, wall hangings, paintings, antiques, etc.

- New flooring may be substantially thicker than the previous causing doors not to swing over flooring clearly. If so, you may need to cut the door down or replace it or have had made prior arrangement with Buy Low to cut-down.
