• Guide to Choosing and Measuring Carpet Flooring

    Carpet flooring can be used in an array of environments, such as your children’s playroom, your hallways or bedrooms. The significant benefit of carpet flooring is that it keeps feet insulated from concrete flooring or cold tiles. Carpet flooring also adds colorful vibrancy to your home decor.

    A number of different textile floor covering options have emerged over the past few years that are available at various prices, discounts, shapes, colors, sizes and quality levels. Ranging from the most expensive carpet flooring to the least expensive options, there are many carpet flooring options to choose from.

    With the size of carpet rolls and a limited workspace, carpet installation and carpet layering can be difficult to do. Textile floor covering is generally 12 feet wide, which makes it difficult to handle.

    The tips mentioned below will help make carpet installation and carpet layering much easier. These tips are handy in installing every type of carpet.

    1. Sub floor cleaning: The surface that has to be carpeted should be neat and clean. Clean up paint chips or anything that is stuck to your sub floor before installing textile floor covering.

    2. Installing tack strips: Tack strips should not be installed near doorways and thresholds of your home. Tack strips are sharp in nature and could poke through the carpet and hurt your feet. Tack strips are available in different heights and widths. Selecting the perfect tack strips is very important.

    3. Installing the carpet pad: The carpet pad should be laid perpendicularly in the direction that you plan to do your carpet installation and carpet layering. The carpet pad then has to be stapled near the tack strips with the help of a staple hammer.

    4. Stapling pad seams: Stapling the seam of pads is also important during carpet installation and carpet layering to ensure that they are not stuck beside one another.

    5. Trimming the pad: The padding has to be felt through to locate the tack strip posts. The padding along the interior edge of walls needs to be cut with a knife for every tack to get exposed.

    6. Trimming the carpet size: After following the steps above, the final thing to do is to roll your carpet with its back facing outwards until the notched areas start appearing. With chalk, draw from notch to notch and cut it.

    These tips will make carpet installation and carpet layering much easier for you.
