If you don’t have knowledge about the renovation you should hire somebody to inspect your house and what is there to be renovated or not. Take a list of things that needs to be changed and a good list to buy from a hardware store. If you are renovating the whole house you might need a contractor to handle the major repairs of the house. If you have knowledge about any safety issues at your place, do inform the workers who will be doing the repairs and ensure their safety by warnings with floating floorboards.
If there are places which needs to be repaired quickly gets it done first and then proceed the other work. If there are things could be done which related to a repair like if the flooring has been removed to fix a floating flooring since it need less material. While doing that you can even check whether there are flaws under it. You might need professional advice based on the flooring renovations since you can’t go backwards after flooring.
