Carpet job by carpet flooring contractor in JacksonvilleThe next step is to be knowledgeable and prepared for the big day when the new carpet flooring will transform your home. Being ready for the installation of your carpet will make the entire process go faster and more efficiently. Knowing what to expect and being prepared will also be a lot less stressful on you, your family and your home.

Our best advice is to go with the pros.

Carpet installation is a skill that is developed through years of experience, so using professional installers is just plain smart. Understanding the basics of carpet installation will increase your knowledge of the process and enhance your confidence in the professionals working in your home. Some of these basics follow.

Nobody knows how to deal with seams better than the professionals.

While seams are inevitable, it’s the professionals who excel at minimizing and hiding seams. They call on years of experience and tried and true methods. Case in point: they’ll insure seams are placed away from areas subjected to pivoting traffic, and not run seams perpendicular to doorway openings.Some carpet styles can show the placement of the seam tape more than others. This is referred to as telegraphing, or peaking, and it is particularly noticeable in low cut pile and looped carpets. A seam may be excellent and considered ‘tight’ but can still be seen.

The pros know what to do about transitions in carpet flooring. When two different flooring products meet – say, carpeting and a hardwood floor – it’s called a transition. Your professional installers will try to match the surface heights of various flooring products to minimize transitions.

What to know and do before installation day

  • Furniture is step one. Remove all furniture and other objects and materials from the areas to be carpeted. Sometimes we will move your furniture, but there may be an additional charge for doing so.
  • Before moving, you’ll also need to empty the contents of china cabinets, closets and the like.
  • If you prefer to remove your present floor covering, do it at least one day prior to installation to allow for cleanup and floor preparation. If removing old carpet, please leave tack strips in place and pull the staples out of the floor from the original pad.
  • You should know that, in many cases, moldings and baseboards need to be removed for carpet installation. Painted baseboards, woodwork and paint may need retouching after the installation is complete.
  • When carpeting is installed, there’s always the possibility that the doors, especially closet doors, basement and bedroom doors, may not clear the new carpet and swing free. Some installers will remove doors in order to install the carpet and re-hang them if possible. They might need to schedule a carpenter to shave or cut down doors to insure clearance.

What to know and do during installation day

  • Your installers will use a variety of tools and techniques that can make the work area hazardous. Please make sure that your children and pets are kept out of the work area on installation day.
  • We recommend that, prior to the completion of the installation, you walk thru the job with the chief installer. This will give you the opportunity to ask questions and be clear on any final details.

What to know and do after installation day

  • Shedding is a natural part of new carpet flooring. Frequent vacuuming for the first few days should remove any loose fibers from the carpet’s surface.
  • Sprouting refers to small tufts or loops of carpet that become visible after the installation. Use a small pair of scissors to carefully trim the loose fibers flush with the surface of the carpet.
  • Finally, if wrinkles or ripples appear in the carpet, it may be necessary to re-stretch the carpet. Please contact us to have this done professionally.
