Installing Carpeting

Know what to expect

We live in the age of do-it-yourself (DIY) home improvement, and while many homeowners like to tackle DIY projects, carpet installation can be very involved.

To properly install carpet to the standards of the manufacturer requires training, experience, and specialized skills. Not to mention that hiring a professional installation team will ensure a final product that you will be happy with long after it’s installed, and that said product will be covered under the manufacturer's warranty.

Nielsen Bros Flooring is a full-service flooring center, providing you with a professional installation team to install your new carpeting hassle-free. At the time of purchase, you can arrange to have your carpet installed by Nielsen Bros – we’ll handle all the details and provide you with information about cost, scheduling and preparation.

To be fully prepared on your install date, feel free to review our helpful carpet installation guide.

Preparing before carpet installation

  • Have existing carpet or other flooring to remove? Let us know ahead of time, as flooring removal can entail additional time and cost, and will need to be factored in to your overall installation schedule.
  • The same goes for moving larger furniture – our team can do this, but it helps to know in advance what we're up against. Unusual items, such as pianos or grandfather clocks, typically require the skill of a company that specializes in such items.
  • Please clear your floors, including insides of closets, and remove smaller items and wall hangings before we arrive.

What to expect during & after carpet installation

  • An adult member of your household should greet your crew upon arrival to show them their work area.
  • Have the head installer walk through the job so you can be fully informed and ask any questions in advance.
  • Keep pets and small children away from the work area to avoid accidental injury.
  • After installation, you may notice a chemical odor or lingering dust, both of which are normal and will subside with time and proper ventilation.
  • Your new carpet may shed, so vacuum using a manufacturer-recommended cleaning device.
  • If you notice wrinkles, rips or tufts, contact your installer to inquire about maintenance or re-stretching
