More Tips for Carpet Tiles Laying

Home Improvement,Family & Parenting,Fashion & Cosmetics
Carpet tiles provide an attractive and economical floor covering. Available in a variety of colors, textures, and patterns, carpet tile is a versatile choice for home decor. Unlike wall-to-wall carpeting, you can easily install (and replace) carpet tiles. Here are tips to successfully install your carpet tile. There are two advantages to carpet tiles: first, you don’t need to master the art of stretch-in installation; and second, it goes much faster than a stretch-in installation. The downside: Because the tiles are glued down, there’s no pad underneath. Like vinyl and ceramic tiles, you lay out carpet tiles by finding the center of the room. Once you’ve found the center, peel-and-stick installation starts by laying a square in it, and then working out toward the walls. Mastic installation also starts in the center, but is done one quadrant at a time because it makes glue application easier. Carpet tile is like other tiles: You can create countless patterns. Tiles for commercial installations don’t have peel-and-stick backing and require a coat of mastic on the floor instead. Trowel adhesive onto the floor using a trowel with the notch size specified by the manufacturer. (Notch size controls the amount of adhesive you apply.) Spread the adhesive in one of the quadrants created by the layout lines. Start applying mastic at the wall, and work your way back to the center of the room. Let the adhesive dry as recommended by the manufacturer: Tiles set in the adhesive too soon will be impossible to remove if you ever decide to redo the floor. Lay the tile in a stepped pattern used for vinyl tiles. Pay Attention to Pile

Like other types of carpeting, carpet tiles are constructed so that the pile goes in one direction. It's important to orient all of your carpet tiles in the same direction or your floor may have an unintended multi textural effect! The back of each tile is marked with an arrow; make sure all of the arrows are facing in the same direction. This provides a uniform appearance that resembles one large piece of carpet. Layout: Getting a Good Start

Rooms may not be perfectly square; it's important to start laying carpet tiles along the straightest wall in the room. Like dominos, the first tile can affect all the rest. It's essential to seat the first tile carefully and snugly against baseboards. Carefully line up each subsequent tile; sloppy placement of tiles displaces those that follow. Don't Cut to the Chase

Precise measuring and cutting can make the difference between a professional looking job and a mish-mash of carpet tiles. Measuring twice and cutting once is definitely good advice for trimming carpet tiles. Use a sharp utility knife and change the blade when needed. Clearly mark cutting lines on the back of carpet tiles. Cutting with one stroke can help prevent jagged edges. Finishing Touches"

You need to vacuum your new carpet and give it a chance to "settle" before it looks its best. With careful installation and vacuuming, lines should not be readily visible between tiles. Follow manufacturer's guidelines to maintain and clean carpet tiles; this helps keep your carpet looking its best. Keep some extra carpet tiles on hand so that you can replace damaged and stained tiles.
