Things You Should Know About the Installation Process:
- The subfloor is the floor in which your carpet will be laid on. In most cases, it is a concrete slab or a wooden subfloor. The subfloor should always be thoroughly cleaned prior to installing
- The subfloor (as well as the room and the carpet itself) should be at least 65 degrees Fahrenheit so the carpet will properly stretch into place.
- In order to prevent damage to the carpet, large holes or cracks in the subfloor should be filled before the carpet is laid.
- Placing seams under the primary natural light source is good. The added light will help hide the seams.
- Placing seams under furniture will help hide them.
- As much as possible, seams should be out of main traffic patterns.
- Seams should not be directly over pad seams unless they are running perpendicular
- The area where carpet is being installed should be ventilated to avoid the buildup of gasses emitted from your new carpet
- The old carpet should be vacuumed prior to removal in order to minimize dust.
- The piles (tufts of fiber) in your carpet have a direction. All adjacent carpet should be laid in the same direction.
- The threshold between carpet and other types of flooring should be protected with a molding
