It is important that all carpet is professionally installed in accordance with Australian Standard 2455.1 “Textile Floor Coverings – Installation Practice – General” and Redbook Carpets Installation Recommendations. Professional installation is a must. If you don't have carpet installed correctly it can void your warranty.
What else should I consider when installing new carpet?
Consider purchasing a little extra carpet to keep on hand to update area busy areas such as stairs or hallways in the years to come. You can also make walk off matts from extra carpet pieces.
Don't forget underlay. Carpet should be installed on new underlay that is compatible with the quality and use of your new carpet.
