What to expect on carpet installation day

What to expect on carpet installation day

You've considered all the available carpet options and compared weaves, styles, and colors, and now it's time for our installation team to lay your new flooring. Folks in the Jackson, MI, area have trusted family-owned Christoff and Sons Floor Covering to care for their carpet flooring needs since 1979. So, expect carpet installation day to be a hassle-free day!


By the time we arrive at your home, all details of the project - accurate measurements, amount of carpet needed, and so on - have been established, so there will be no surprises. You can walk on your new floors when we're done, but a 'wait time' may be needed for putting furniture back. Expect good communication and answers to your questions when you shop at our carpet store.


The carpet installation team will bring a power stretcher to your home so the carpeting can be pulled across the room, and a knee knicker will be used in small spaces like a closet. First, the team will install underlayment, which limits flooring wear and adds thermal and sound insulation.

Subfloor repairs are made if needed, and old carpeting is removed from your home.


While our team moves large furniture, you should remove smaller items like computers and lamps. Be sure installers have a clear path to the work area so they can easily get their tools and the carpet rolled into the space. It's a good idea to vacuum the old carpet before the team arrives to reduce the amount of dirt released into the air when it is removed.
