4 Tips To Prepare For A New Rug Installation

Depending on your situation, you might be considering a rug installation. Maybe you have an old rug that needs to be replaced, or you're just redecorating your home and want an accent rug to bring it all together. No matter what the reason may be, we've got some tips that will make the process as smooth as possible:

By following these tips, you can ensure that your installation goes smoothly and results in a beautiful area rug!

Clearing/Cleaning The Carpet

Before you begin, it's important to prepare your space. You'll want to remove all furniture and other items from the carpeted space so you can easily maneuver around it. Also, vacuum any existing carpeting in order of dirtiness (the dirtiest areas first). If you're installing a new carpet, clean the floor before installing it -- this will help ensure that all of your efforts go toward a smooth installation process rather than trying to work around dirt or debris on your floor.

Move The Furniture Out Of The Space To Be Carpeted

Before you begin installing your new carpet, moving the furniture out of the space to be carpeted is important. This will give you enough room to work and walk around. It will also ensure enough space for cutting the carpeting if necessary.

It is important to clear a path and leave a border around where you plan on laying your new flooring so that there is room for seams and trimming (after installation). For example, if you install wall-to-wall carpeting throughout an entire room—for example, in a living room or dining area—you should leave about 6 inches all around (2 feet) for trimming purposes after installation. If this leaves too little space between where furniture has been moved and walls or other obstacles within your home like baseboards or cabinets/countertops/bookshelves etc., then don't worry! Just remember: You can always cut off more than what was originally needed later once everything has been installed correctly without any issues whatsoever...and trust me; there won't be any issues whatsoever ;)

Are You Removing Tile Or Hardwood Flooring- Hire A Professional Contractor!

Hiring a contractor is the best way to go if you are removing tile or hardwood flooring to install a carpet. Removing tile and hardwood can be quite labor-intensive. Hiring an experienced professional will avoid putting yourself at risk of injury or causing damage to your home. If you're not sure whether or not you should hire a contractor for this task, make sure that it's something that interests you first. While most people find themselves drawn toward DIY projects because they believe they will save money on them (which is true), there are some that require more than just elbow grease and know-how in order for them to come out right. If removing tile or hardwood doesn't sound like something that interests you, then maybe it's better off left up to professionals who know exactly how much work goes into such projects!

Taking Care Of Your New Flooring After Installation Is Complete

Taking care of your new flooring after installation is just as important as any other step in this process. You have finally completed all the work and now have beautiful carpeting! Now, it is time to keep it that way. Here are some things to remember:

  • Keep the area clean by using a broom, dustpan, or even a vacuum cleaner (if you don't mind dragging out one more tool when cleaning). This helps keep your fibers from becoming beaten down and looking worn out, which can happen easily if something heavy sits on them for too long.
  • Don't walk on your new carpetswith dirty shoes or drag furniture across them—ever! This will cause scuffs/scratches in a pile, as well as cause wear-and-tear faster than expected because dirt gets stuck between fibers easily but isn't easily removed like water would be during regular cleaning techniques such as sweeping off the mud from boots before coming inside.
