Carpet is beautiful and practical flooring. In addition, lay carpeting can be very simply do without any DIY repairmen. While theorists and professional repair wizard can tell you that this is not true. Even a simple listing of instruments may enter as a shock to an inexperienced person. Can it be so difficult? I say – no, it's much easier and faster.

Objective – to lay new carpet. And this must be done quickly and with less effort. The solution consists of the following steps. 1. PREPARATION. In this step we do the following: a) releases ROOM OF FURNITURE.

It is highly desirable to do so then there is nothing to interfere with work. Even heavy cabinets or sofas advise removed. Emptiness in the room and will facilitate the work in the future to save time and hassle. B) critically evaluate with coating. If you have old linoleum, invited the builders will likely advise you clean it up. But I would not hurry. Of course, the old linoleum, especially on the basis of the felt may contain dust and dirt. But if you put a new coating on top of old, the floor will be warmer and softer. In addition, you will not need to expend energy on something to strip off and throw away the old linoleum. B) Removes OLD plinth. In the apartments, where there is decoration, as they say, the builders, often set wide wooden plinth. That they are nailed directly to the floor, it is possible that to the very old linoleum. I would suggest that such a plinth just tear off and replace them with new, modern plinths with cable channel (more on that later).
