What to expect when your carpet is installed

Published: September 22, 2011

Carpet is the most popular choice in floor covering. It instantly adds warmth to a room; it comes in a wide variety of styles; and it is easy to care for. It’s no wonder people love their carpet. When you visit Kermans, our design experts will help you select the best carpet for your home and lifestyle. But our service doesn’t stop there – our professional installation team will make sure the carpet is installed in your home properly which makes a big difference in how long your carpet lasts.

Many of Kermans installers have been working with us for 15 years or more and their experience makes a big difference. You can also make a difference by making sure you and your home are appropriately prepared:


  • Determine who is responsible for moving furniture and other objects from the area to be carpeted. Installers can do this but will charge an additional fee.
  • Review your moldings and baseboards – they may need to be removed for installation and if so, any breakage or paint retouching will be your responsibility after installation. Our installers try to be very careful, but scratches and scrapes to painted surfaces can’t always be avoided.
  • Be sure to move all breakables, computers and electronics before your installation.

Be prepared to be at home the day of installation and be available in case the installation crew has questions. Your presence will insure that the correct carpet is installed in the right areas. But plan to stay out of the way, your installers will be using a variety of tools and equipment and you do not want any children or pets underfoot. We also recommend that you walk thru your newly carpeted areas with the chief installer to ask questions and be aware of any final details.
