Before, During and After Your Carpet Installation

So you’ve made the decision to choose carpet for your floors and have pored over endless swatches of available carpet and have made your choice as to which of them you prefer. So what now? Installation is the next step but if you are unsure as to what happens during this process, here is a brief guide to what needs to happen before, during and after the process.

Before

The first thing that you need to do is to remove all furniture from the room that’s being carpeted. You will also need to disconnect any electrical appliances such as televisions, DVD players and stereos. Unless previously agreed with your carpet supplier or fitter, you may have to remove the old floor covering before the carpet fitters arrive. For this purpose, you might need to arrange to have a skip or other means of waste disposal at your home. This can be used to dispose of your old floor covering and to also dispose of any leftover scraps of carpet once the installation is completed.

During

Similar to the installation of eco flooring such as bamboo flooring in Sydney, it is important that you be present throughout the entire carpet installation process. While this doesn’t mean that you need to stand at the shoulder of your carpet fitter, you will need to be available to answer any questions they may have. Try your best to keep children away from where the installers are working, as they will be using sharp tools that are potentially dangerous to children. When your carpet has been fitted, make sure to walk through the area with the carpet fitter to inspect the finished job and to ask any questions you may have with regard to care and maintenance.

After

Once the carpet installers have left, it is important to air out your home to get rid of any fumes from the adhesives that were used during the process. Also, after a new carpet has been fitted there may be a period where it appears to shed. This is a normal occurrence and is the result of fibres loosening during the installation. For the first few days after your carpet has been fitted, regular vacuuming will address and rectify the issue. If you have any problems after your carpet has been fitted, such as ripples appearing or any loosening of the carpet, make sure to contact your carpet installer without delay.

As with any home improvement project, planning and preparation is vital when it comes to carpet fitting. Being as informed as possible will make the whole installation process that little bit easier for you and your family.
