How the carpet is attached to the floor + Video. There is nothing difficult in the process of attaching carpet to the floor. Let's take a closer look at how to do it yourself.
You can easily cope with such work, you just need to comply with some rules.
There are only 3 main conditions:
Please note, that if a new flooring is installed instead of the old one, it will not be superfluous to know how to carefully and quickly remove the old flooring.
This refers to the solvent of the carpet adhesive.
You will find such a solution in hardware stores, and it should be used according to the manufacturer's instructions.
But why spend money on special solvents, if you can remove the old carpet from the floor with the help of improvised means, in a simpler way. But this will greatly simplify the process and speed it up several times.
Be careful and wet the floor so that you don't have to pay to repair your downstairs neighbors. Also, do not cut the carpet into too narrow strips (less than 0.
3 meters), as it can tear when torn off and grab the edge of the covering after that it will be much more difficult.
The carpet, which has been laid and fixed with grippers, is not so difficult to remove - hook on one extreme, pull it off and then remove from the rail. For convenience, as in the previous method, you can cut everything into strips. If a new layer is laid instead of the old coating, then the slats can be left. So, when laying the cover again, dismantle the slats with a nail puller or a construction hair dryer, if they were planted on mastic.
After the glued carpet has been removed, the remaining glue on the floor can be removed with a grinder or scraper. Check the floor carefully to make sure that there are no staples, nails or baseboards left on it.
Now let's move on to how to attach the carpet to the floor. To lay a new layer, you will need tools, and although the set is small, it is better if it is immediately at hand so that you can do all the work quickly and efficiently. Below we have left for you a list of tools that are suitable for all types of flooring, and while some may not be required, it is better if you have them.
You will need:
Although this is a basic list, other tools may be required during the work.
Of the materials you need:
When everything is purchased and ready, you can start laying.
You can attach the carpet to the floor using four methods - on tape, glue, by fixing skirting boards around the entire perimeter and using the technology called stretching.
This method of flooring is ideal for small rooms where you can lay the flooring in one piece:
Important! Make sure that the surface to be glued is completely dry and the air humidity does not exceed 68%, otherwise the tape may deform or peel off even before the material is laid on it.
In this way, you can fasten the carpet to the floor almost every person and alone, although of course it will be more convenient if someone helps you.
Probably the easiest way:
This method is ideal because the work can be done with your own hands and even save on payment for a specialist. Also, super-careful preparation of the floor surface is not required, as, for example, with the adhesive fastening method.
But there are also disadvantages, namely, that over time bubbles and even irregularities may appear only due to the fact that the covering was poorly fixed (the skirting boards do not press the carpet very tightly to the floor).
In addition, it is not recommended to move furniture over the coating and wash it with a washing vacuum cleaner.
Despite the fact that the method is considered laborious, it is also the most popular.
There are a lot of reasons for this:
Please note, that when laying carpet on glue, you need to approach with full responsibility and follow the recommendations, since if something goes wrong the first time, the used the material cannot be laid a second time.
To fix the carpet to the floor with adhesive, you will need the following step-by-step instructions:
Please note that the floor surface can be covered with glue both completely and partially (with a grid with squares of 0.
5 * 0.5 meters).
Interestingly, the adhesive installation method is ideal for laying carpet on wood or concrete floors. It will be easier to lay such a coating on a laminate or linoleum on tape or fix it with baseboards.
This is a special method in which the edges of the material are attached to special gripper strips.
What are the advantages of the method? The floor does not require a thorough processing, as in the method with glue fastening. We also note the reliability of fixation, the absence of bubbles, waves and irregularities. In addition, the life of the coating will be extended. There are also disadvantages, namely that this method is very complicated and time consuming (special tools are required) and you will need to buy a substrate.
Important! It is advisable to lay a substrate under the covering that will be applied using the stretch method, as it will increase softness and will be able to increase sound and thermal insulation.
Instructions for covering the floor with carpet with stretching technology:
It's not that difficult, but help from the outside will not be superfluous.
If you decide to lay carpet on the floor with your own hands, follow these tips:
These simple rules will keep you from re-stacking material.
What is the best way to lay the carpet?
The answer is simple - glue. The fact is that you can not worry and calmly move furniture across the floor, and not be afraid that irregularities or waves will appear.
Also, in this case, the service life of the coating increases, the original appearance of the carpet remains longer, and you will be sure of the reliability of fixation.
