Choosing the perfect carpet for your home is just the beginning of your journey to a comfortable and stylish living space. Proper installation is a crucial step to ensure that your new carpet looks and performs its best. At Astley Carpets in Broughton Astley, Leicestershire, we’ve prepared the ultimate guide to carpet installation, so you can enjoy your new carpet for years to come.

1. Professional Installation Matters

While DIY projects can be fun, carpet installation is best left to the professionals. Our team at Astley Carpets has the experience and expertise needed to ensure a seamless installation process. Professional installation guarantees that your carpet is properly stretched, aligned, and secured, preventing issues such as wrinkles, buckling, and uneven wear.

2. Preparing for Installation

Before the installation day arrives, there are a few important steps to take:

  • Clear the area: Remove furniture and belongings from the room to provide the installers with a clear space to work.
  • Clean the subfloor: Ensure the subfloor is clean, dry, and free from debris to create a smooth surface for the carpet.
  • Be aware of door clearances: If your new carpet is thicker than the old one, you might need to adjust door clearances.
3. The Installation Process

On installation day, our skilled team will follow these steps:

  • Measuring and Cutting: Each piece of carpet is carefully measured and cut to fit your room’s dimensions accurately.
  • Padding Installation: The carpet padding is placed over the subfloor to provide cushioning and support.
  • Carpet Installation: The carpet is unrolled and positioned over the padding. Our team ensures that the carpet is properly aligned and stretched to prevent wrinkles or buckling.
  • Seaming: If necessary, multiple pieces of carpet are seamed together using specialized techniques to create a seamless appearance.
  • Edge Finishing: The edges of the carpet are neatly tucked and secured to the room’s perimeter using tack strips or adhesives.
  • Final Touches: Any excess carpet is trimmed, and seams are carefully concealed for a flawless finish.
4. After Installation Care

Once your carpet is installed, there are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Allow time for settling: New carpets may need time to settle, so avoid heavy traffic and moving furniture for the first 24 hours.
  • Regular vacuuming: Maintain your carpet’s appearance and longevity by vacuuming regularly with the appropriate attachment.
  • Promptly address stains: If spills occur, promptly clean them according to our stain removal guide.
