What is the parallel structure of this sentence? To install new carpeting, workers must first remove the old carpet, prepare the surface, and then lay down the matting

  • social work writing -

    It looks parallel to me.

    The series has 3 parallel verb phrases in it:
    ~ remove the old carpet
    ~ prepare the surface
    ~ lay down the matting

    The only thing I would suggest is to move "then" to the second verb phrase and then include "finally" or "last" with the third verb phrase ... like this:

    ~ first remove the old carpet
    ~ then prepare the surface
    ~ finally lay down the matting
