Carpet installation in a Bellevue, WA home

What to expect on carpet installation day

Choosing the very best carpet for your home is only part of the process of flooring your home. To finalize your dream floors, there must also be the carpet installation, which is the final step.

We understand there are a lot of questions regarding installation and lots of things you?ll want and need to know. We?re here today to make sure we cover a few of those need-to-know items so you?ll better understand the process.

Preparing for your carpet installation

Before your carpet installation day, you can help to prepare for the actual installation by vacuuming and removing furniture, if that hasn?t already been addressed. You?ll also want to remove wall hangings, art, knick-knacks, and any other valuables, as well as to make sure there is ample access to electrical outlets.

Our team will already have taken precise and thorough measurements and will come equipped with the perfect sizes and shapes for your space or spaces. But before the actual installation begins, a few things will have to happen first.

The old carpet or flooring will be removed if it hasn?t already. Then the subfloor surface must be prepared by making sure the area is free of dampness, debris, and uneven areas. Tack strips go down next, to hold the flooring in place.

Seam attachment is next and is very simple if you have solid color flooring. However, patterns pose no hurdle for our seasoned installation team, who have both training and experience for just these types of things.

The carpet will also be stretched, to assure the perfect, smooth surface on which you will walk. Our installers know precisely how to do so, for the standards and functionality of the specific flooring brand you?ve chosen.
