You have given thought to the discount carpet you want in your home and are excited to see it as a floor covering. If you purchased your carpet at a reputable dealer you will have no problems during the installation phase. Your dealer either has trained installers on staff or will recommend an independent installer if they do not provide that service. Once your carpet has been chosen and the areas measured you will be ready to schedule your installation. There are some guidelines you should note and you should check with your dealer or professional installer about any questions you may have prior to installation.
Before the installers arrive you should remove all fragile and breakable contents from the floor covering areas to be carpeted. Discuss with your dealer/professional installer about furniture removal. There is usually an additional charge for removing furniture, especially if it’s heavy. Please note again, professional installers are not responsible for emptying the contents of china closets, drawers and the like. It will help in the long run if you do that ahead of your scheduled installation. You should detach all electronics such as computers, TV’s (if they are to be removed in order to install the carpet), and make sure the wiring is off the floor if possible. All this should be done the day before your scheduled installation. If you have carpet down already, there may be an additional charge for removing the current carpet and carpet padding.There is quite a bit more to discuss for installation so keep on checking back.

Shaw Flooring Industries is one of many in the flooring industry that answers questions about allergens and carpet. People are under the misconception that cheap carpet causes allergies and such. The falsehoods associated with this have been around for a long time. Let’s take a moment and think about carpet. Carpet as with any other type of discount flooring, can attract dust, soil and the like. So what do you do? Vacuum!! Regular, good old fashioned vacuuming your carpet along with periodically cleaning your carpet using hot-water (steam) extraction, will rid the carpet of any dirt, allergens etc. etc. On the other hand carpet does indeed keep dirt and particles down in the carpet until it is vacuumed, whereas on discount hardwood flooring these are constantly stirred up releasing them into the air. So along with comfort, acoustic value, colors, types, cost, we can add allergen reduction to the many great qualities of carpeting. As a sidebar, the new carpet fibers resist staining so one should vacuum regularly even if the carpet looks clean. Regarding chemical emission in the indoor environment, research has concluded that new carpet is one of the lowest emitters. The EPA found the emissions from carpet and carpet installation to be well below the recommended guidelines making discount carpet a great choice for those concerned about indoor air quality. One should have air ventilation for the first few days when carpet is installed. The University of North Carolina was involved in 2002 in a study. “Two schools were the subject…one school had mostly resilient tile floors while the other was 70-75% carpeted. The study found that airborne contaminants were higher over the tiled floors than over carpet”.
