What should I do before, during, and after carpet installation?

Carpet installation is best left to the experts, but there are certain things you can do before, during, and after installation to ensure the longevity of your new carpet.

  1. Prior to installation, you can save labor costs by pulling up the carpet yourself. The carpet will be held into place against strips of tack-board that you can also remove yourself. Use a putty knife to scrape away remaining chunks of carpet from your floor.
  2. During professional carpet installation, ensure you keep the area well-ventilated by opening all windows and doors. For this reason, you should consider having carpet installed during the spring or summer.
  3. After the carpet is successfully installed, vacuum regularly to remove any loose carpet fibers. This is normal and will taper off after a while.
