Post installation guide

General:

  • If you are sensitive to dust and odors, good ventilation should be established. Some of the chemicals used in the construction of carpet, as well as the adhesives or hot melt seaming tapes, can have an odor for as long as 48 to 72 hours after installation. So be prepared to provide the room with adequate ventilation.
  • Proper maintenance is critical to the life your new floors. Please refer to our maintenance section for more information.

 

Carpet:

  • Carpet seams are a natural product characteristic. Some carpet styles can show the placement of the seam tape more than others. This is referred to as telegraphing, or peaking, and it is particularly noticeable in low cut pile and looped carpets. A seam may be excellent and considered ‘tight’ but can still be seen.
  • Shedding is a natural part of a new carpet. Frequent vacuuming for the first few days should remove any loose fibers from the carpet’s surface.
  • Sprouting refers to small tufts or loops of carpet that become visible after the installation. Use a small pair of scissors to carefully trim the loose fibers flush with the surface of the carpet.
  • If wrinkles or ripples appear in the carpet, it may be necessary to restretch the carpet. Please contact us to have this done professionally.

 

Tile and Stone:

  • Stone is pourous and needs to be sealed in order to be protected from spills and stains.

Vinyl:

  • If your vinyl floor was installed using the Full Spread method, no appliances should be moved in for a minimum of 24 to 72 hours after installation. Light foot traffic is allowed after 24 hours.
  • If the Perimeter Adhered installation method was utilized, no appliances should be moved in for a minimum of 24 to 72 hours after installation. Light foot traffic is allowed after 24 hours.
  • If the installers used the Floating method, appliances can be moved in immediately and foot traffic is OK immediately following installation.
  • When you are ready to move appliances back into the room, an underlayment type of product such as plywood or particleboard with a minimum thickness of 3/8,” placed on the new flooring prior to moving the appliances, will greatly reduce any mishaps.
  • Do not rely on the wheels that may be attached to the refrigerator to move the appliance back in as they can cause damage to the new floor.
  • Allow 5 days before thoroughly washing your floor. This will give time for the adhesive to cure.
