Preparation ensures a smooth, fast, and efficient installation
When fully prepared, you'll cut down on unnecessary delays and costs, such as moving furniture, over-or-under ordering, or not following proper disposal rules.
Measuring comes first, and we do it differently at Marion's Carpet & Flooring Warehouses. We send an installer, not a salesperson, making it genuinely become part of the installation process.
Installers can speak to you about your concerns, goals, and challenges. This will be your time to talk! They can also explore the room and spot potential problems for installing the carpet flooring, not just a pricing tool.
Specifically, you need to:
- Know who removes furniture?
- Make any required alternate arrangements?
- Find out about subfloor preparation. Who does the inspection? The subfloor needs to be clean, dry, and level.?
- Go over the estimate to make sure there are no hidden costs.
The day of your carpet installation
Depending on the size of the room, the carpet installation can take less than a day. First, the installer will place wooden tack strips around the room's perimeter.?
The padding goes inside the strips, and the rug is stretched tightly over the entire surface. Installers at our carpet store in Wilsonville and Portland, OR, use a long, thin tool with tines at the head that's a power stretcher; most warranties require their use.
After the carpet installation
You?ll love your new carpeting! The professionals will let you know when you can walk on it, move furniture back in, and return to everyday life.
They'll also tell you that some things, like shedding, are typical for the first few months?but when it's time to call the store.
