The Carpet Barn | Waynesville, NC

Installing Carpeting

In this age of do-it-yourself home improvement projects, installing carpet requires a specialized skill. The Carpet Barn recommends one of their installation professionals to ensure your satisfaction with the product for years to come. However, there are a few things you can do to prepare for the arrival of your new carpet.

At the store

While choosing your flooring, The Carpet Barn will send one of their skilled carpet installers to measure and talk with you directly to ensure a quality job. We will handle the details of the installation for you from there.

Be sure to ask about additional fees, such as removal and disposal of old flooring, and moving larger furniture pieces.

Preparing for the installation

  • Aside from the furniture, you can make sure things go smoothly on installation day by taking care of the following beforehand:
  • Remove all breakable items, like vases, lamps, collectibles, and heirlooms
  • Detach and store wiring from TVs, VCR/DVD Players, stereos, and computers
  • Clear desktops, tabletops, bookshelves, tops of dressers and closet floors
  • Remove all sheets, blankets and bedspreads from beds
  • Confine your pets to ensure their safety

During the installation

Your installers will arrive with the knowledge, tools and supplies to lay your new carpet. However, they will need an area to store their electrical tools and access to electrical power outlets for their tools.

Also, vacuum the subfloor after the old flooring and cushion has been pulled up and before the new floor is installed to minimize dirt and dust.

Bear in mind that your new floor coverings need to be installed over a structurally sound subfloor. Any damage that has been done by insects, water, or other problems should be repaired prior to carpet installation.

After the installation

In the months following installation, you may notice some shedding or sprouting. This is normal and will not affect the carpet’s life or beauty in any way. Shedding is when loose fibers become undone from carpets made with staple yarn. This is normal and subsides within a short time with vacuuming. Sprouting is when a single tuft extends beyond the carpet surface, usually along walls or at seams. Simply clip it off; do not pull.
