It not only impacts your home interior but also become risky who walk on it. There could be lots of mistakes you did when installing this. From measuring the installation area to installing the runner, there could many mistakes that the installers perform and charge for full service. Whether it is stair runner or carpeting of your home, it needs to be done with the perfection. So, there are 3 major mistakes that most carpet installers make, but you can prevent.
Tackless Strip Mistakes
The tackless strip should not be placed exactly next to the corner of the stair and should be completely equal to the crotch of the stairs. A big mistake that often takes place during installation is a tackless strip with upward facing pins rather than leading them towards crotch.
Don’t cut the padding in long strips to be flown down on the stairs, instead, it should be cut in individual lengths. Make sure to verify that the padding should be cut into a size that will avoid stretching. Don’t use the padding to overlap the tackless strip.
When it comes to the carpet runner, you should not fold each long edge to the backside of the carpet.
Don’t cut the carpet too short that leaves a seam in a less than installing location.
