What Goes into Replacing Your Carpet with New Flooring

Carpet is a beautiful addition to any room you want to make cozier, especially bedrooms and family rooms. This type of flooring can help reduce noise as well. However, heavy foot traffic, dirt, spills and more can diminish the quality of your carpet, especially if it’s a lighter color. If you have carpet in your home, you probably already know this. While vacuuming and deep cleaning may help, the only true way to restore the look of your carpet after years of use is to replace it.

Are you sick and tired of your old carpet? Carpet is nearly impossible to keep totally clean and stain free, so after a few years of heavy use and traffic, it’s time to replace it. When the time comes, you may decide you don’t want carpet anymore. You don’t have to have it! The truth is that many people decide to replace their old carpet with tile, laminate, and even hardwood floors, although plenty of people choose to go with a different carpeting option as well.

When you’re ready to make the switch, Custom Flooring and Furniture can help you decide which flooring option is right for you. Once your new flooring type and style has been chosen and purchased, the installation process begins.

Step #1 Your furniture will need to be moved, of course, and it is advisable for homeowners to move small and delicate items, including electronics and collectibles, yourself.

Step #2 Your existing flooring is then removed. This may take a while and it often a big project in and of itself.

Step #3 The base foundation and surface area needs to be examined for imperfections and addressed as needed. For instance, the baseboards and trim may need to be removed.

Step #4 Next, the new flooring material is installed, including transitions and any baseboard or trim that needs to be reinstalled.

Step #5 The whole area is cleaned and furniture put back into place. That’s it!
