Once you have agonized over choosing your new carpet and have finally selected the perfect carpet for your home or business, it will be hard to wait for the big installation day. If you want to prepare your home or business before the carpet installation begins, there are several things you can do to help make the process smoother and more efficient. If you had preexisting carpet in the area of the carpet installation, you should clean it thoroughly to reduce the dust and allergens that the removal process will release into your interior.
One thing you can do is ensure that the carpet installers’ truck or van can get as close to the entryway of your home or business as possible. This will make taking the new carpet in, as well as removing any old flooring or tools after the job is complete, easier. You can also prepare the area where the carpet installation is happening by removing as much of the furniture as possible. It might even be a good idea to remove curtains, artwork, or anything else on the walls. The carpet installation can occur more quickly with fewer hang-ups in an empty space.
It is also a good idea to think about the path that the carpet installation professionals will take to get from the entryway to your project area. You may want to protect your other interior flooring by covering it with plastic, cardboard or old carpet, but whatever you use, make sure you secure it so it won’t shift underfoot. You will also want to consider moving any valuables or breakable items from this pathway, so there is no chance they could be damaged or broken inadvertently.
With these simple steps, you can rest easy knowing that you are ready for your carpet installation. You can look forward to having your flooring finished and ready to enjoy in no time.
