Killer tips for successfully installing your carpets in no time
If you are thinking about dealing with the new carpet installation in your house all by yourself, by reading this article you will find important information (and useful tips) that will help you achieve your goal faster and also without having to work hard.
The first thing that you should do before actually installing the carpet is to properly clean the sub-surface of the floor with specially designed cleaning compounds, and also get rid of any imperfections that may affect the actual installation.
After doing that, you should keep in mind that there’s more than just one type of carpets on the market. Tip: The easiest one to install is the carpet which has a carpet pad.
About the carpet pad:
This type of carpet is the easier one to install because you do not need to use glue or any other adhesives to install it, but keep in mind that you have to properly secure it to the floor at the perimeter in order to prevent it from moving around after installation.
After properly cleaning the floor, you will need to install a wooden tack strip around the perimeter of the room on which you will later attach the carpet. Next you have to lay down the carpet pad within the tack strip and staple it to the subfloor. Stretching the carpet over tack strip requires the use of a carpet stretcher and carpet kicker. These tools can be easily found in your local hardware store even if you live in areas such as Coral Springs, Parkland, or Plantation.
In conclusion, if you pay attention to every step of the carpet installation processes you will be able to complete this job in no time and also save money by doing it yourself.
