The Carpet Installation Process

Before Installation

You want a problem-free installation and, to help ensure it, here's a list of things to complete before the installer arrives:

  • Make sure you know who's getting rid of your present flooring. If you would prefer not to deal with it, the installer will do it. If not, you should make plans to have it torn out. To minimize dust, vacuum your old carpet prior to removal and, after it's up, vacuum the floor thoroughly.
  • Who's moving the furniture? Decide in advance if you want to take on the responsibility or if you want the installer to handle it. Either way, be sure to remove all fragile items from the room, and don't keep anything in the area-such as curtains or plants-hanging over the installation area.
  • Measure door clearances before you have your carpet installed. If the new floor is heavier than your existing floor, door bottoms may rub. Plan in advance to have someone trim or saw the correct volume off the bottom of each door so it does not drag.
  • Paint first. If you're planning to paint, wallpaper, or do any other renovating in the room, it's best to do it before your carpet is installed. Keep extra paint to touch up any post-installation scratches.

During Installation

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

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