Your choice of carpet fitter will entirely depend upon your specific needs. If you expect to change your carpet every few years, then you will probably be better off to choose an independent carpet fitter. If you want your carpets to last for a long time, then you should ask for a follow up from your retailer, as this will ensure that you have a stress free experience with the fitting. No matter whom you choose, make sure that you carpets are power stretched prior to fitting. This is very important in that it ensures that wrinkling and rippling are minimised. And don't forget to carefully measure your rooms before fitting and thoroughly clean the sub floor.
Carpet Tiles, which are also referred to as a modular tile or carpet squares, have traditionally been used as a commercial flooring installation, however, residential usage modular tile companies have begun to market products aimed specifically at the residential consumer. They are square cuts of carpet that can be laid on your floor like tiles. There's no glue to worry about and depending on where you install your tiles will depend on what thickness you choose to install. Rooms such as the kitchen or bathroom, for example, will require a more even, flat tread, while bedrooms and living areas can be more plush and have real softness.
Of course, laying down new flooring is never very simple. For the squares, the floor in any room must be cleared and the floor marked up to ensure that the squares are put in straight. The center of the room should be found and this is where the work will begin from. Although many people will think that laying the flooring along one wall to start the process is the correct thing to do, in fact, this could make the room look a little odd in the end. With the vagaries of the building trade, some rooms are not perfectly squared off and this then is where problems become apparent, but only after the majority of the flooring has been laid. Better then to start from the middle out so that the look of the room is kept symmetrical.
To avoid dust it is a good idea to vacuum the old carpet before it is removed. Once the new carpet is laid, all the edges should be trimmed and sealed with hardwood. Once the fitting is complete, inspect the carpets to make sure that everything is to your satisfaction, and that you are happy before finishing the deal. Always remember that no matter how expensive or luxurious your carpets may be, it is the fitting process that makes all the difference to the look of your home. Therefore, it always pays off to spend time, money, and effort when choosing the right fitter for your carpets.

Seasoned carpeting shoppers always check out these three attributes before forking over their credit cards.
