Preparing For Installation

Congratulations on your new carpet from Rockford Floor Covering. We're sure you're eagerly awaiting its installation. This quick guide will help prepare you for installation day and will help you know exactly what to expect.

Before Installation Day

Preparation is important for a successful carpet installation. You should consult with your Rockford Floor Covering flooring specialist for full instructions, but there are steps you can take to help the process go smoothly.

If you have old flooring that has to be removed, there may be some work involved in getting the exposed surface ready for the installation of new carpet. If your old floor was glued down or held in place with tile adhesive, this will be especially time-consuming. An experienced flooring specialist will know when the surface is ready for new flooring and may be able to help you dispose of your old flooring.

All the furniture must be moved out of the room where your new carpet is to be installed. If you have heavy items or things that require special care, it’s a good idea to hire professional movers and storage experts. Hiring professionals can also cut down on the amount of time you have to live without your furniture to as little as a day before and after the carpet installation is done.

During & After Installation Day

A member of your household who is 18 or older should be available to greet the installation crew and show them the work area. For everyone’s safety and to help the project go smoothly, keep children and pets away from the work area until the job is done. Feel free to ask your lead installer any questions you might have about the finished product and get recommendations for resuming the use of your newly carpeted rooms.
