Highly Qualified Technicians
An experienced installer can move fast and has the tools and knowledge required to manage unexpected situations. Furthermore, installation by a qualified professional can help ensure your carpet is covered by the manufacturer warranty in case you have a problem. A professional installer will have a broad range of equipment to work with, here are a few items you’re sure to see if you watch the installation process:
Tack strips are strips of wood with small angled pins set in rows on one side. They are nailed to the floor around the perimeter of the area where the carpet will be installed. The carpet is then pressed down onto the pins which hold it in place, so it can be stretched tight across the floor.
This tool is used to stretch the carpet into place. It has small teeth on one end that grip the carpet and a pad on the other which the installer strikes with one knee. This pushes the carpet forward and hooks it onto the spikes on the tack strip. This is how the carpet is stretched for a proper fit across the surface of the floor.
The seam roller is a spiked cylinder-shaped roller with a handle. The installer uses it to press down on the seam between two pieces of carpet to make sure the carpet sticks to the adhesive which has been applied underneath. It’s important to secure seams as tightly as possible, especially in doorways or other high-traffic areas.
