Common FAQs About Carpet Installation

Why choose carpet installation?

Carpet installation is a popular flooring choice for many homeowners in Texas, and for good reason. Carpets offer warmth, comfort, and aesthetic appeal to any room. They also provide sound insulation and can help with energy efficiency. But before you jump into the installation process, let’s address some common questions.

What types of carpets are available?

Carpet options vary, including cut pile, loop pile, and combination styles. Each type offers unique benefits and aesthetics. For instance, cut pile carpets are known for their plushness and comfort, while loop pile carpets are durable and great for high-traffic areas. As the name suggests, combination styles blend the best of both worlds. But how do you choose the right one for your home?

How long does carpet installation take?

The time it takes to install carpet can vary depending on the room’s size and the job’s complexity. On average, it takes one day to install carpet in a standard-sized room. However, larger rooms or those with intricate layouts may take longer.

Does furniture need to be removed for the installation?

Yes, all furniture will need to be removed from the room while the installation is taking place. Schedule an in-home consultation with us, and we can discuss this topic further and any other questions you have. Source: Express Flooring

Why is there extra carpet?

Carpet comes in standard widths between 12′ wide and 15′ wide and will be seamed together in the same direction to complete your installation. It is not unusual to have 15% to 20% waste on a job and the amount varies depending on the dimensions of the room and where the seams are placed. In addition, if there is a pattern to your carpet, extra carpet will be needed to match the pattern. If you are arranging your own installation, it is crucial to ask your installer how much carpet is required for the job prior to ordering and to tell the installer the size of any pattern match.

Why is my new carpet shedding?

The balls of fluff, or loose fibers, found on carpet or in the vacuum cleaner bag are the normal result of fiber left in the carpet from the manufacturing process. Removing these loose fibers does not affect carpet life or appearance. Because of their large size, these fibers are too big to become airborne or inhaled. With proper vacuuming and using a quality vacuum cleaner, most shedding gradually disappears within the first year after installation. Please note that for wool looped carpet it is crucial to use a suction vacuum rather than a vacuum with a beater bar. Source: Home Carpet One
