The first step to prepare your home for a new carpet, is to have a professional come out to your home and measure the area where the carpet will go. It’s a good idea to get an idea of an estimate when you first go in looking for a carpet, so you can get an idea of how much the carpet will cost, but you should have a professional get exact measurements for you before you actually order any carpet.
The next step to consider when getting new carpet, is to have an idea of what your budget will be. After you have an exact measurement, be sure to get a quote that has the exact cost of the carpet, carpet padding, and the installation labor.
The third step is to make a plan for the installation. You will need to schedule with your installer an exact day or a few days for the actual installation job at your home or business. You will need to make sure you have a plan about where the furniture will go and where the new carpet and pad will go. If you have any other questions or concerns, be sure to discuss those with the installer before the installation day arrives.
The next step is to clean and prepare the rooms that will have the new carpet installed in them. You will need to make sure that you either have the installers move the furniture, you remove the furniture from the area, or have a moving company just move the furniture for you. After the furniture is out of the way, just make sure that you don’t have anything else in the room that shouldn’t be in there during the installation.
The last step is to decide what you want to do with your old carpet and pad. If you do not want to keep your old carpet and pad, then you will need to check with your installer about removing the old carpet and pad and getting rid of it. If possible, it is always best to have your carpet and pad taken somewhere it can be recycled. Most installers will take the old carpet and pad as part of the installation cost, but some installers might have an additional cost for the removal. You can always check on this detail before you even place an order for the carpet and set a date for the installation.
