Carpet Installation Tips

Carpet Installation

Preparing for Carpet Installation

While do-it-yourself home improvement projects are increasingly popular, carpet installation requires a specialised skill.

When you purchase your new carpet, ask your flooring retailer if they have professional carpet installers on staff. If not, ask them to recommend an independent installer for your area. In most cases, the retailer will handle all the details of arranging the installation. Be sure to ask about additional fees or carpet installation costs for things like old flooring removal and disposal and moving larger furniture pieces. Steam ‘n’ Dry Carpet Repairs Auckland branches in West Auckland, North Shore, East, South Auckland and Hibiscus Coast since 1987

Before your carpet installer arrives, here are some things you can do to make the job easier:

  • Vacuum your old carpet to minimise dust when removed.
  • If you’ve removed the old carpet, ventilate the room and vacuum the floor thoroughly.
  • Leave nothing hanging over the carpet area, such as plants or drapery.
  • Open windows and doors to provide proper ventilation.

Before Laying Begins

When the installer arrives, there’s a new checklist of chores to keep in mind:

  • Make sure the carpet is the same one you ordered at the store before laying. Check the label and sales receipt.
  • Ask your installer to inspect the carpet and backing for defects.
  • Keep the label, receipt, warranty, and a scrap of carpet for your records. That little scrap will come in handy if you ever want to buy more of the same style and colour!
  • Decide if you wish to keep any leftover carpet to use as doormats or for future repair jobs.
  • Steam ‘n’ Dry Carpet Repairs Auckland Services offers professional carpet laying, flood fix, stain removal, carpet cleaning and drying repairers in North Shore, West, East & South Auckland.

After Carpet Laying

Installing carpet can be a dusty, dirty job. If you have allergies or are sensitive to odours, you might want to leave while the job is ongoing.

After your carpet installation job is complete, here are a few things to watch for:

  • Fibres may shed or sprout for a few days. Vacuum up the loose fibres, and clip the sprouts with a pair of sharp scissors. (Don’t pull or they’ll unravel!)
  • Trim and re-hang any doors that do not swing freely.
  • Keep an eye out for wrinkling. Ask the installer to return and re-stretch the carpet if it doesn’t stay tight and flat.
