Proper installation and regular maintenance are essential to your carpet's performance. Choose from several installation methods, and always hire a professional:
- The stretch method provides more underfoot comfort and higher noise reduction, particularly when padding is used. This method also makes it easier to match patterned carpeting.
- The glue-down method is usually less expensive and holds up well to heavy, rolling traffic because it prevents seams from buckling.
Before the installers arrive, vacuum your existing carpet to minimize the release of dust and dirt. After the old carpet and padding have been removed, vacuum the subfloor. And immediately after your carpet has been installed, vacuum the area again to remove loose fibers.
We strongly recommend you hire a professional installer to install your new hardwood floors. Please talk to your Carpet Discount Warehouse store for installation appointments when you purchase your hardwood floors.
Floating floors can be installed on top of any existing floor. An interlocking system of grooved and raised edges is used to keep the laminate floor in place by creating a snug connection when joined together. This tongue-and-groove connection system also allows the flooring to expand and contract with temperature and humidity changes, and creates the floating floor effect.
Before installation begins, the existing floor or subfloor must be covered with an underlayment. Seams on the underlayment must be taped if installing laminate over concrete.
If your design is simple, tiling can be a fairly easy do-it-yourself project. But whether you are installing the tile yourself or having it done professionally, several important steps are essential to a beautiful floor:
- The subfloor must be structurally sound, smooth, and flat.
- Proper measuring and the use of chalk lines ensure an evenly patterned floor.
- Tile, unlike other types of flooring, must be installed one piece at a time using thinset.
Vinyl is easier to install than other materials because it is more pliable, but the process requires time, patience, and exact measurements. We recommend hiring a professional for the job. Vinyl takes several hours to acclimate to room temperature and cold air can harden the material and cause it to crack or snap.
Installation of vinyl requires a completely level subfloor. If the subfloor is not level, a layer of quarter-inch plywood should be installed before installation. Subfloors then require a layer of latex adhesive to secure vinyl tiles to the floor.
After all the tiles have been laid, spread a protective layer of acrylic floor finish on the vinyl surface and leave for 24 hours. Several days after installation, seal the vinyl with two or three coats of professional-grade liquid wax. A thin layer of wax should be reapplied over the topcoat every year.
Vinyl Composition Commercial Tiles
In the case of vinyl composition commercial tiles, after all the tiles have been laid, spread a protective layer of acrylic floor finish on the vinyl surface and leave for 24 hours. Several days after installation, seal the vinyl with two or three coats of professional-grade liquid wax. A thin layer of wax should be reapplied over the topcoat every year.
