The Carpet Installation Process

Before Installation

When you're receiving new floors, you want installation to be simple. To guarantee this occurs, here is a checklist of things to do prior to the installer's arrival.

  • Make sure you are comfortable with whoever is taking out your current flooring. If you would prefer not to deal with it, the installer will do it. If not, you should make plans to have it removed. To reduce dust, vacuum your old carpet prior to removal and, after it's up, vacuum the floor thoroughly.
  • Who's transporting the furniture? Decide in advance if you want to take on the accountability or if you want the installer to deal with it. Either way, be sure to protect your fragile items, and don't keep anything in the area-such as wall-hangings or plants-hanging over the installation area.
  • Measure door space before you have your carpet installed. If the new floor is heavier than your current floor, door bottoms may rub. Plan in advance to have someone trim or saw the proper amount off the bottom of each door so it does not drag.
  • Paint first. If you have plans to paint, wallpaper, or do any other renovating in the room, it's a good idea to do it before your carpet is installed. Keep spare paint to touch up any post-installation notches.

During Installation

To make your carpet look good now and for a long time to come, proper installation is critical. Here's the process an experienced installation professional will follow:

  • Prepare the surface: Carpet can be installed over most smooth surfaces. Your installer will make certain the area is clean, dry, and level.
  • Put up tack strips and lay carpet pad: The installer will nail or glue tack strips to keep the carpet in place. Then the pad is placed and attached with staples or glue.
  • Line up seams: This step is best for solid carpet and more difficult for patterns-but your professional installer is qualified to deal with either.
  • Stretch the carpet: This is a demanding step that professionals adhere to cautiously, complying with industry standards so that the carpet will function ideally for the longest amount of time.
