Having carpet installed in your home, office, or business can add a touch of style and class. Unfortunately, carpet installation isn't always as simple as just dropping it down onto the floor and walking away.
It requires a decent amount of elbow grease from you or a contractor. To install carpet in your space, the first step is almost always moving furniture. That's where the removable carpet tiles from Matace carpet come in handy. These compact, removable carpet tiles can quickly revitalize your flooring while helping you save money and time.
The Inconvenience of Furniture Removal for Carpet Installation
Typical carpet installation using a professional service usually involves removing all the furniture from the room. Be it small items like décor, linens, books, breakables, and electronics or large furniture like beds, tables, sofas, and dressers. This can be a huge pain, especially if you have a lot of furniture or heavy pieces to shuffle around.
Some installers do offer furniture moving as a part of carpet installation. However, that service comes at an additional cost. The movers are also reluctant to tackle breakable items and anything that might be a liability – like television or vases. You might need to hire a third party to move objects like water beds, pool tables, and pianos, as many carpet installers will refuse to move such large and heavy objects.
Here're some other methods used during traditional carpet installation for handling furniture:
- Many installers rely on the musical chair method for moving furniture during installation. This method involves shifting furniture to another location within the same room while having the carpet installed and then shifting it back to its original location. Although you don't need additional storage for this method, it's a labor-intensive technique that requires a lot of effort.
- You can also store your furniture in the garage or shed if you have one. This method requires you to make enough space in these locations for your furniture while ensuring these items are well protected from weather and rodents, both of which can be time-consuming and challenging.
- Another method is to rent a short-term storage unit which comes at a considerable cost for the storage unit itself and the transportation of the furniture from your space to the storage unit.
In other words, you must do a lot of prep work before any carpet arrives or is installed. And even if you use carpet tiles, most brands require a lengthy set time of at least 24 hours. This means you can’t use the room or place any of your furniture back into the room for at least that amount of time. This can be frustrating and inconvenient. As such, the installation timeframe can go up to a few days, depending on the area, type, and amount of furniture you have and the furniture handling method you choose.
This is because the weight of the furniture can cause deep impressions that can reach the adhesive and damage the bond. If you replace the furniture without waiting, the carpet will have permanent indents due to damage to the adhesive. Although you can walk on the carpet pretty quickly, putting your furniture on it is another story.
