March 2, 2007, Newsletter Issue #54: 5 Things to Check When Using Professional Carpet Installation

Tip of the Week

Getting carpet installation from professionals does not alleviate you from the roles you need to play in oversight and inspection. Looking for carpet installation tips? Here are 5 things you should double check during the process: First, to prepare the surface for installation, vacuum the floor after the old carpet and padding are removed. Second, inspect the new carpet as it's unrolled to make sure it is the right color, texture and style. Carpet is a lit harder to return once installed. Third, make sure that your carpet installers are properly stretching the new carpet to reduce wrinkles and ripples to a minimum. Even professional carpet installation can have mistakes.. Fourth, if you find that the new carpet is preventing doors from opening, arrange to have the doors shaved and re-hung. It is easier to shave a door than lower a floor. Lastly, ventilate the room well to let the new carpet get properly accustomed to the new environment. Open any doors, windows, and run exhaust fans if available. Following these five tips will make your carpet installation run as smooth as possible.
