DIY Carpet Laying
Generally, you may improve the appearance of your home by renovating it now and then. Hence, replacing worn-out carpets may give your house a much-needed makeover without breaking the bank. Although most people prefer to hire professional handypersons to perform basic tasks like laying carpet, it can be finished in under 4 hours if you have the correct information to assist you. Then, back and knee problems are the only difficulties you’ll have throughout installing the wall-to-wall carpet.
Perhaps, most people fear laying their wall-to-wall rug because they fear their friends and family will notice that an amateur performed the work.
But, as mentioned earlier, you can finish the work without leaving traces of bumps if you’ve got the correct information to guide you. Therefore, if you want to know how to lay carpet, you will find the information given in this article quite fascinating.
Indeed, I’ve attached some suggestions and instructions for laying the carpet here.
Before Getting Into This Task, Ensure That You Have The Following Setup:
- Chalk line
- Knee pads
- Rolling pin
- Safety glasses
- Tack strip
- Tape measure
- Utility knife
- Work gloves
Indeed, you can quickly obtain these things from a local home improvement or hardware shop.
Below Are Instructions On How To Lay Carpet:
- First, you must remove the old, worn-out carpet. Then begin by removing the mouldings surrounding the floor to make your work easier while removing and bringing in the new carpeting. Also, ensure you have vacuumed the old carpet to avoid inhaling dust.
- Use the utility knife to incise the rug into about eighteen and twenty-four inches strips.
- Begin from one end, jerk the rug from the tack strip, and turn it into bits. While many think they can recycle their current carpet by laying it underneath the new one, it could be a better decision, given that it will have been worn out and may contain pests that will infest the new rug.
- Remove the current tack strips and ensure the floor is washed and dried. Before you lay the new carpet, please provide the subfloor is well-secured to avoid squeaking while walking on the mat.
- Fix the new tack strips throughout the edges of the room. After that, leave a space of approximately 1.5 inches between the wall and the pieces. Make sure all of the tacks are facing the wall. Check that the tack strips are hammered securely against each other at the ends.
