Choosing the right carpet for your home or business has never been easier. There is a vast array of options available to you. Carpets have many added benefits beside endless design possibilities.
Once you’ve chosen a carpet from our huge in-stock selection or decided to order a carpet from our sample racks, you can either install it yourself, or you can let us do it for you. If you choose our installation service, our installers will come measure your rooms and provide you with a list of material needed and a cost estimate.Our installation pros will expertly install your new carpet, so you’ll be satisfied with it for years to come.
You can speed up the installation by
Remove all furniture, art, linens, trinkets, clothing etc. from the room
(Doors may need to be resized by a carpenter if your new carpet has a higher pile than the previous flooring)
Vacuuming your old flooring to minimize airborne dust and particles
Removing your old carpet
It’s a good idea to be on hand when the installers arrive so you can help them set up. When a carpet installation is finished, vacuum lightly several times during the first week to remove loose fibers, lint, and dust.
If D-I-Y is more your thing, installation instructions and product information is available in-store and/or online. You’ll find brand specific instructional videos and articles online too.
Whatever you choose, our flooring consultants will be happy to help you find the best flooring for your needs.
Whether it’s because you want the luxurious softness of carpet under your toes, you enjoy the noise dampening quality, or you need the forgiving layer of protection for your rough-and-tumble kids, you want carpet in your home. But maybe you’re worried about how practical your choice is.
You can forget your fears about carpet. Not only has the look and feel of today’s carpet greatly improved, but the leading brands offer new stain-resistant synthetic fibers that make spills, smells, and wear worries of the past—this isn’t the same carpet your parents had.
Preventative maintenance is the name of the game with carpet care. It’s easy and inexpensive to spot clean and vacuum frequently.
Here are a few special solutions for common carpet problems:
Use fingernail scissors to remove the burnt fibers. A patch (or even replacement) may be needed for an extensive burn.
Some fiber or “tuft” loss is considered normal, but whatever you do, don’t pull. Sprouts, tufts, and snags can all be easily removed with a normal pair of scissors.
Fix dents or compression marks from heavy objects by gently moistening with an ice cube (or water mist) and stroking with a coin.
A professional carpet cleaner can steam them out as well.
For the occasional spill, Kraus has a handy Spot Removal Guide that you can print out for quick reference.
Like Kraus, manufacturers provide fiber or brand-specific care guides that you can download from their websites, so check those out for hints and tips for getting the most out of your new flooring.
Many carpet manufacturers stand behind their products and back them with warranties against factory defects, colour changes, delamination, texture retention, and even static generation.
