Frequently asked questions about carpet

Can I install my carpeting?
We generally advise that you only utilize a professional carpet installation team when purchasing a new floor covering from this product line. Special tools and expertise are required to give you the desired results and protect your warranty. It’s well worth the added budget, especially over time.

Is this normal for my floors to shed?
Yes, some shedding happens right after installation, and we will advise you regarding vacuuming to alleviate the mess. The shedding is generally caused by cut-pile fibers that weren't cleared after manufacturing and did not mean your flooring failed. If you do notice anything that seems wrong, be sure to contact us immediately.

Do you have to add an underpadding during installation?
Underpadding is one of the essential parts of your carpeting experience. Not only does it help create a plush, comfortable feel underneath your chosen floor covering, but it also works to alleviate problems. For example, without proper padding, you might see waves, ripples, premature wear, or balding, so it's always wise to make sure you don't skip this vital step.

Which fiber is best for my home?
The answer to this question depends on your specific lifestyle. For instance, if you have pets, children, or both, and an active, busy lifestyle, you'll want naturally durable fibers such as nylon or polyester or a product that features built-in stain and odor resistance, such as SmartStrand. Choosing a fiber that is commensurate with the specific needs you have is the best way to ensure you receive the lifespan, the functionality, and the protection you need, especially over time.
