Carpet has come a long way in recent years. If the new innovations in style, durability and stain resistance have prompted you to invest in new flooring, there are a few simple steps to take prior to installation day. These will help expedite the installation process and prevent the need for future repairs. Don't worry, we will take care of the hard stuff: initial measurements, planning, prepping the subfloor and moving of conventional furniture.

  • Remove expensive items: valuable decor items, electronics (especially cords) and fragile furniture should be removed prior to installation. We can move heavier furniture, but cannot be held responsible for damage to valuable items.
  • Door space: Before choosing new carpet, consider the space between your door and current flooring. Will the new carpet provide enough space? Carpentry work is a different field, so if you prefer carpet floors that aren't compatible with your doors, you may need to make arrangements to have them trimmed or replaced prior to installation.
  • Workspace: Our installers will need room to store their tools and perform certain tasks. They will also need to move around the home while they are dirty from working. Setting aside a specific corner for them to work in while also setting a path for them to move around will help expedite the process and protect the rest of your home's floors.
  • Temperature: Many carpet lines need time to acclimate for proper sizing. The specific requirements vary, but it's often useful to maintain consistent indoor temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees. Check the documentation before installation for specific temperatures.
  • Dust: Dust and particles naturally accumulate during installation, especially if sanding is needed.

There is no need to make arrangements to have your old flooring removed. Once we've finished, we will haul away your old carpet and cushion. We can also provide personalized recommendations to get the most out of your new carpet and maintain it for the long run.
