Carpet installation can be time-consuming and complex, involving different tools and steps. That's why we recommend trusting the pros! We'll have the job done right the first time! Learn more about our carpet installation process below.

Before installation

Once you've made your purchase, we will be in touch to confirm your installation appointment. We'll discuss with you everything you need to know prior to your carpet installation. In the meantime, however, there are a few things to know.

First, you'll need to prepare the room. While we can move your furniture for you, you'll need to move any fragile items and empty any closets. You'll also want to make sure you handle any other projects, like painting, before your flooring installation.

During & after installation

On the day of the installation, someone who is at least 18 years old will need to be home to show the installers to the work area. We'll evaluate the space, make sure your subfloor is ready to go, and remove your old flooring if necessary. From there, we'll work on installing your beautiful new carpet. During this time, keep pets and children away from the area until the installation is complete.

Afterward, you might notice an unusual smell as well as some light shedding. Simply vacuum your carpet over the next few days and you should stop noticing these issues.
