What do carpet laying and installation services include?

Adding in a carpet to your home can be that final touch when designing your interiors. However, installing a carpet is no easy chore. The best carpet installers near you can measure, cut, and lay your carpet correctly. No need to go through all the hassle of doing it yourself! Here’s what you can expect when booking carpet installations near you: 

Preparing for carpet installation

Before getting your new carpet installed, there are a lot of preparations that need to be done by local carpet installers. First, the floor space is measured. This makes sure that you’ll only purchase the right amount of carpet and that it is cut accurately.

Some Taskers may even offer same-day carpet installation near you. Before rolling out the carpet, they make sure that there are no loose nails and wooden boards. Some installers also help move aside furniture you had assembled to keep everything clear and ready for carpet laying.

Glue-down carpet installation

The glue-down method is the most common method among installers. Here, the carpet is glued directly to the floor. This is ideal for floors that cover larger areas. That is why it is used for commercial carpet installation. It provides solid support, especially for buildings that wish to have carpeted ramps. It is certain to not budge, even with things rolling over the surface daily. 

The best carpet installers make sure that your floors are smooth. This ensures fewer mistakes during carpet laying. When not done correctly, the areas not glued down properly wear quickly. That’s why it’s best to leave it to an experienced Tasker. Once rolled out and secured, you can always have your carpets cleaned and stains removed to ensure a fresh, brand new look.

Stretch-in carpet installation

Most homeowners may opt for a stretch-in carpet. Here, strips of wood containing nails are nailed around the edges of the room. Padding is installed in the middle of the room for the carpet to lay over it. The carpet is then attached to the pins on the strips of wood. From there, your carpet installer will stretch it across the room. A plus to this method is the extra padding underneath the carpet. It provides added comfort and extends the lifespan of the carpet itself. 

Adding a carpet underlay

An added service that is offered by many independent carpet installers near you is carpet underlay. This is a thin cushion put under your carpet. It is made of materials like sponge rubber and foam. A carpet underlay provides extra comfort to your flooring. It also provides your room with acoustic and thermal installation. Be sure to ask your carpet installer for the best underlay for your carpet and its installation method.
