• Carpet Installation Myrtle BeachThere are lots of things that a homeowner should learn about new carpet installation. Even if you hire a flooring professional such as Flooring Myrtle Beach or have the carpet manufacturer install the new carpet in your home, there are still some things that you need to do and keep in mind. Note that installing the carpet in your home should not be the sole responsibility of the installer. There are certain tasks that you need to do to ensure a quick, efficient and proper carpet installation.

    After you have chosen the carpet for your home, here are the things that you need to do before, during and after the carpet installation process.

    Preparing the House for the Carpet Installers

    Carpet installers will come to your house at an agreed date and time. Before their arrival, there are some preparations that you need to do. Basically, you need to remove the clutter in the rooms and areas where the new carpet will be installed. Keep in mind that they will be repeatedly moving furniture around while installing the carpet. Thus, you might want to put away the small items that could fall when desks, bookcases, dressers, and tables are moved.

    Make sure that your furniture is ready to be moved when the installers arrive. This means disconnecting all wires and attachments to the wall. Neatly tuck the wires of your devices inside the drawers so that it will not be damaged when the furniture is moved. Doing so will make it quick, easy and safe for the installers to move the furniture and install your new carpet. Plus, you will not have to worry about the installers disconnecting and connecting the wrong wires when they move the furniture.

    The Carpet Installation Process

    Every installer and flooring professional implements a different process for carpet installation to residential homes. Basically, however, this process involves the moving of furniture, tearing out old flooring and laying out the new carpet. Because you have made all the necessary preparations to allow the installers to safely and easily move your furniture around, all they need to focus on is tearing out your old flooring and laying out your new carpet.

    • Tearing out old flooring –When taking out the old flooring, installers will specifically look at the tack strips and carpet padding and assess them if they need to be replaced or if they are still in good condition to be used.
    • Laying out of your new carpet –To effectively lay out the new carpet to your home, some installers opt to cut the carpet in several pieces. This makes the installation easier, more precise and well proportioned. The new carpet will then adhere to tack strips. Seams are glued together so they are invisible to the naked eye.

    After Your New Carpet Has Been Installed

    The installers will help you return your furniture to their places. Do not forget to discuss with the installer on how to maintain and take care of the new carpet. Also, the installers may have some reminders for you such as avoiding too much foot traffic on the new carpet to allow the adhesives to dry quickly.
